What You Should Expect


First and foremost, each guided fishing outing is catered to you, whether it's a family day or you're an experienced angler.  Tell me your goals and interest for the outing, then ask all the questions you want and learn all you can during our time together.  You should expect to improve your knowledge, skills and catch fish. Although catching fish is not guaranteed, no one tries any harder. You have other fishing guide choices and I appreciate you selecting me.  Your time is valuable so I’m dedicated to working hard and being patient to create an enjoyable, educational, memorable and Christian based experience for you.


As a licensed professional freshwater fishing guide in Texas, I primarily guide on Central Texas and Hill Country Highland Lakes.

  • Canyon Lake - West of New Braunfels
  • Lake Dunlap - In New Braunfels
  • Lake LBJ (Lyndon B. Johnson) - West of Marble Falls
  • Lake Marble Falls - In Marble Falls
  • Inks Lake - North of Marble Falls


Be my guest on a 21’ bass boat powered by a quiet four stroke outboard. It is fully equipped and completely networked with Humminbird Solix and Onix electronics, LakeMaster and Navionics mapping systems, and a remote controlled Minn Kota iPilot Link trolling motor.  The boat converts from the typical two single seats (front and back) to double seats (front and back). The boat is also equipped with Bee Ready rod holders and an Engle live bait aerated cooler. 

I supply a Yeti cooler filled with cold water, along with peanut butter or cheese crackers for snacks. Bass fish with St Croix rods and Okuma reels and crappie fish with Pro Angler Tackle rods and Okuma reels.

When special accommodations are needed, I will make arrangements or decline the service. 

I look forward to meeting and spending time with you on the water.
