"LATERAL LINE GUIDE SERVICE"


 

                            LIVE OR ARTIFICIAL BAIT SPECIALIST FRESH OR SALT            

What do you like to fish for ?  All species of fresh and saltwater fish have seasonal best times. My service offers MULTI-SPECIES fishing at its finest and guarantees you will have a successful day on the water, or the boat trip is free !!!! This is my ironclad guarantee to you the customer !!! I book trips for Striped Bass, Hybrid Striper, Catfish, Crappie, Sandbass, Smallmouth, Largemouth, Saugeye, and Gar in freshwater, Trophy Largemouth Bass on Lake Fork Texas, and a variety of LARGE Saltwater Fish in June and October along the Gulf Coast of Texas. All Saltwater or Trophy Striped Bass /Largemouth /Gar trips are on a custom designed basis with the customer in mind. I will fish the trophy Striped Bass lakes and Rivers of Arkansas, and Tennessee for long range trips.  For those trips involving catfish, hybrid striped bass or crappie I fish the central Oklahoma lakes and rivers.  Do you have a dream trip ? Lets discuss what you would like to do.  Allow my service to make that dream possible at reasonable rates. Wildlife watch trips also available.

What is a Lateral Line ?  It is a line that extends along the mid-line of a fishes side from the mid gill to the tail and serves as the fishes ear, it detects vibration and direction the vibrations are coming from. All fish have one, although it may not always be visually apparent.

Hiring a guide actually costs less than monthly boat payments!  It is less expensive these days to hire a guide to do that for you !! If you are a novice fisherman or new to the area a guide can shorten your learning curve ! As your guide I will work hard for you ! I will do my best to assure a pleasant day on the water. If for some reason I cannot get the fish to bite in spite of best efforts, you will have a free day on the water.  Rarely do fish totally shut off, although there are times, (typically during high pressure, bluebird days, post frontal passage) that catching may be slow.(fishing is ALWAYS good !!)   I provide the knowledge required to find and catch our quarry, as well as the boat, bait and tackle. I love to teach and show people how to catch fish especially children. I will explain why we are fishing the way we are, seasonal fish patterns, and locations that you may return to on your own. It is rumored guides have certain places they won't take a customer, but be assured I show you all the best spots !!  I encourage catch and release on fish over 5# in any water body. For table fare the smaller fish taste better !!! Trophy size fish will be photographed, measured, and put back (when possible) for others to enjoy !!!
