Toledo Bend Fishing Guide Service on Toledo Bend Lake

Why hire a fishing guide?

Fishing guide Greg Crafts in his 20' ProCraft 200

Everyone has heard the old adage….."If it flies or floats, rent or lease it"? I know it's expensive to hire a guide, but take a close look at what you are getting for your money. You're planning your annual fishing trip, family vacation, entertaining that special client or putting on a corporate fling, you want everything to go perfect and that's what my guide service strives to do.

Hey, when I go to a new lake or a lake I haven't fished in awhile, I hire a guide. It only makes sense. I'm only going to be there for a few days. Sure, I could probably figure the pattern out, but it could take me days. Why not hire a guide, who knows the lake, can show me how to get around and put me on some fish. Fishing almost 200 days a year I have a pretty good idea of what the fish are doing and where to go to get them. Sometimes mother nature makes us work for them and the bite is slow, but if you don't go you will never know.

If you are a novice or beginner, I'll teach you the basics: proper equipment, tackle, seasonal patterning and bass behavior or if you just want to take the kids out and catch a boat load of bream with a cane pole we can do that too.

Want to entertain that special client or put on a corporate fling. No problem, I will make sure you have what you need. Want a Tackle Pak put together with the most productive baits to give to your guests, I'll take care of it. Want to set up a day of golf or a trip to the gambling boats in Shreveport, we'll make all the arrangements. I have qualified professional associate guides for any size group. Just let us know what you want to do and we'll make it happen.

If you're a professional looking for five big heads to put in the livewell to get a check, I'll put you on the area that holds big fish. I've quit fishing tournaments because it was conflicting with my guide service business, too much dead water and I didn't want my customers to think I was saving the fishing holes for myself.

Want references, I'll send you a boatload of happy customers. Come on and book a trip, we'll have a ball!
