  • Client Testimonials
    James, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful trip I had last Thursday! I learned more from you in 5 hrs than I've learned in almost 40 yrs of fishing. Up until catching that monster, I had caught less than 10 bass total and none over 2 lbs. Catching that monster (10.20 lbs) was the highlight of my life! I still have to pinch myself to be sure it was real, but then again, I'll have the mount from Lake Fork Taxidermy to prove it.

    You are a true gentlemen and a bona fide expert in the art of bass fishing. I WILL BE BACK. For the masses out there, I can't recommend this man enough. If you come, you will catch fish!

    Thanks Again and God Bless,
    Robert Davis

I've been a fisherman for as long as I can remember. My father and grandfather were both avid fishermen and fishing seems to be in my genes. I find it hard to express the enjoyment I receive from bass fishing. My father introduced me to Lake Fork over 15 years ago. It was love at first bite. I could not believe the consistent quality of fish that Lake Fork produces.

Being a Lake Fork bass fishing guide enhances my fishing experience. I find great enjoyment in taking someone fishing and seeing that same thrill when they tie into a HAWG. I want to share this feeling with all of my clients -- the beauty of Lake Fork, the thrill of catching large bass, and the opportunity with each cast of catching the trophy bass of a lifetime!
