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 and memorable Christian based experience for you.


As a licensed professional freshwater fishing guide in Texas, I primarily guide on the following lakes.

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


Be my guest on a 21’ Lund bass boat powered by a 250hp quiet four stroke outboard. The boat is fully networked with Humminbird Solix electronics, LakeMaster and Navionics mapping systems, and a remote controlled Minn Kota iPilot Link trolling motor.   It is also equipped with Bee Ready rod holders and an Engle aerated bait cooler for crappie fishing.

You will bass fish with St Croix rods and Quantum reels and crappie fish with Pro Angler Tackle rods and Okuma reels.

I supply cool water along with peanut butter or cheese crackers for snacks.

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.
