We are able to accommodate anything that you desire for a perfect day on the water.
Single anglers, all the way up to multi boat corporate team building days away from the office.
We are also capable of guiding for crappie on Lake Fork, Lake Ray Roberts, and several other small lakes within a 2 hour drive of the DFW metroplex, trophy crappie will be the target on these trips and will be a great learning trip if you want to learn a tournament style of fishing.
Several of these lakes are holding 3 pound crappie!
