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.

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.
