Overview

Exchange stress for relaxation, fun and memories while bass and crappie fishing Central Texas Hill County lakes. Each guided fishing outing is catered to you, whether it's a family day or you're an experienced angler. You should expect to improve your knowledge, skills and catch fish. I'm dedicated to being patient to create an enjoyable and memorable Christian based experience.

Thanks for the kind rework. The heat and lack of rain has made it difficult to boat a lot of fish. I enjoyed meeting your family and fishing with all. I do hope we can fish together again.

Thanks Barry for a great day on the water, really enjoyed myself. Barry taught me so much about the Canyon Lake terrain and how to fish the reservoir effectively. I highly recommended a guided trip with Barry.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and rating. I was happy for you catching that 22" largemouth bass. It was a beauty! I hope we can fish again and have a safe trip back to IL.

Barry was awesome to fish with. He has great advice even for seasoned fisherman. He put us on the fish multiple times and was able to deliver. I would highly recommend him as a guide.
