What do we need to bring?

I suggest you bring the following

  • 2 or 3 rods and reels per person spooled with fresh 15-20 lb test line
  • Appropriate seasonal clothing
  • Rain suit
  • Sunglasses
  • Sun screen (Please bring lotion instead of spray.  The spray can blow onto fiberglass, seats, carpet, etc.)
  • Fishing cap
  • Camera (I will take digital pictures and will gladly email those to you)
  • Lunch, snacks, and drinks (The boat is equipped with an ice chest and I provide the ice)
  • Texas Resident Freshwater Fishing License (Annual – $30, One Day – $11) or Non-resident Freshwater Fishing License (Annual – $58, One Day- $16)
  • (For license by mail call Texas Parks & Wildlife 1-800-895-4248)


Do you furnish rods, reels, and lures?

All lures will be furnished at no additional cost.  I can furnish rods and reels if needed, but I highly recommend bringing your own if possible.  There is no additional charge for the use of my rods and reels, but I do ask that you replace any equipment if they are damaged during your trip.  Please let me know in advance if you will need to use my equipment.


What will we do for lunch?

We normally bring a sack lunch and eat on the water.  The boat has a built-in cooler for drinks and food that needs to stay cold, and you are more than welcome to use it.  Some clients choose to take a break and eat lunch at one of the restaurants on Lake Fork.  Either choice is fine with me, just please let me know in advance what you would like to do for lunch so I can plan accordingly.  We will still fish 9 hours no matter what we do for lunch.

Can you suggest a motel?

There are many places to stay on Lake Fork.  Some of the motels that my customers have had good experiences with are Lake Fork Marina, Sunrise Lodge on Lake Fork, Minnow Bucket Marina, Oak Ridge Marina, Lake Fork Lodge, and Mustang Resort.


Can you handle group or corporate trips?

Absolutely.  I work with many of the other top guides on the lake, and I can make all the arrangements for you.  It is best to decide on a date as quickly as possible so that we can assure availability of the other guides and motel accommodations (if needed).


Do you guide on any other lakes?

Yes.  I also do guided trips on Lake Monticello and Lake Welsh.  These lakes can be nothing short of incredible during November, December, and January as the fish there will spawn during these months due to the warmer water being discharged from the power plant.  Our full day trips average over 25 bass with many in the 3 to 6 pound range.   We’ll also get a fish over 7 pounds every now and then.  These fish fight extra hard due to the year round current and warm water.


Do you accept Credit Cards?
