Greg and I fished Lake Fork with pro guide Marc Mitchell and had a blast. We caught 40 + fish between 3-6 pounds. We were lucky because most boats at our lodge were only catching 1-5 fish per day. Some were using other guides and some were not. I have fished
Fork on my on and with a guide and it seemed like completely different lakes. Give Marc
a call he was able to help us catch fish when most people weren’t! Experience is one
bait most of us don't have! ~ J.J.
Thanks for the Lake Fork experience. Putting Todd on the 8 lbs, 4 oz lady culminated a great day.
Your willingness to teach a bunch of pike fishermen Bass oriented techniques fit our wants perfectly.
And your patience & tolerance of our flippin’ & hook setting was appreciated. I always thought
those BASS fishermen were a little over-the-top on their hook sets for such a little fish
(compared to pike). Now I better understand the urgency!
Had to run after the seminar, and you were fairly well snowed under anyway, but wanted to tell you
I enjoyed this seminar more than any other I have ever attended. I live just north of the
2966 bridge on the west side of Coffee Creek. I will put your techniques to good use soon.
Would also be interested in any seminar you give in the future.
Sight fishing and Summer location are two that come to my mind.
Thanks again and good luck in the future!
Thanks again for the Great fishing trip!!!!!
A note from Georgia - I really did learn quite a lot about fishing from you that will help me
be a better angler. I am extremely happy that I was able to actually catch fish, I usually
don’t catch many. I especially appreciate you spending the time to teach me how to
throw the bait cast reel and without back-lashing, my husband and son are extremely
glad about that too. Oh one more thing, I LOVE THOSE JIGS OF YOURS!
From Randy – I too would like to thank you for an informative and very comfortable
two days of fishing. We look forward to doing it again sometime. I am also glad you
taught Georgia how to use a bait caster, but now have to buy her more rods & reels!
Please forward our pictures to my e-mail.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line and tell you what a great fishing trip I had!
Sight fishing with you was the most fantastic bass fishing experience I have ever had.
Seeing those huge bedding HAWGS and catching them was amazing.
Your accommodations were wonderful and your military discount made an incredible
experience even better. God Bless you and your family. You are the true professional
and I am already planning my next trip.
Thanks a million,
Thanks for the great trip-you are such a nice person and talented guide.

Just wanted to send a quick note to say thanks again for the great trip on Wednesday.
Darlene and I had a blast. The opportunity to go fishing at Fork was great and catching
my personal best was awesome. We are looking forward to our next chance to get back
to Lake Fork. We will definitely be giving you a shout.
Saw that you posted the pictures on the internet. Darlene wanted me to give you
a hard time about her picture - it looks like she has a gold tooth.
I'll be passing your contact info to some of my buddies who might be interested
in a guide trip.
Pat and Darlene Staley
Thank You very much for a wonderful day of fishing, and mounds of knowledge,
for which I believe will make our trips from this point on, greatly improved on.
You provided a first class service. Hope to see you when temperature lowers in fall
or winter. Both boys were very grateful for the trip and your knowledge.
Thank you again,
It has been several weeks since our return trip home and I wanted to take a minute to
thank you and your wife for a truly great trip. We certainly enjoyed the fine country home
settings, furnishings, and the added company of Precious, Smokey, & Pretty Girl.
Despite the cold front, you worked very hard to find us good, quality fish and make a
very memorable trip. We will definitely be back to fish with you for that elusive
double digit bass. I may however, need to come back during some warmer weather -
Diane is planning to come along to show me how it is done! Have a great summer
and hope to see you all next year.
I wanted to thank you for a great two days fishing this April. This was our third trip
and it was one to remember. You are so good with dad and I think he really enjoys the
trips. He should, the 8 lb 8 oz bass was his biggest catch. I am becoming a better
fisherman with all of your tips. The site fishing is fun and I am having success with it
in North Carolina. Thank you and have a great summer. It is a great thing you are doing
for the troops!!! If you need a recommendation, please have them contact me.
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed our latest
outing....my 2nd with you. Sight fishing is exciting and them HAWGs were a
blast to catch. You taught me a new (and FUN!) way to fish. Sure will have
to try it out next spring here in southern Alabama. I will coordinate my
next visit to Lake Fork soon to take advantage of your military rates !

Wanted to drop you a line and thank you again for your services. My brother and I had a
great time and you were very helpful in getting us on fish and catching them. Please do
not hesitate on giving my name as a reference for I had an all around good experience
and would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone. I look forward to fishing
with you in the future.
Thanks for the great trip and the opportunity to learn new techniques to catch big fish.
I fish a lot of tournaments, and your trip and expertise will pay off for me! Great trip!!!
