When I look for a guide, I want to book a trip with a true fisherman. Captain Doug is an incredible bass angler with a wealth of knowledge and expertise.  He is a great teacher and a true professional. On top of all of this, he is a heck of a nice guy. Whether you need help with tournament preparation, lake familiarization or just want a fun day out on the water, Captain Doug should be your first choice.

A fine day on the lake on December 15th 2010. Temps in the mid 30’s, no wind or rain, with overcast skies. We caught about 50 fish with this 5+ pound largemouth. We caught about 10 fish in the 2-3 lb range a 5 lb smallie and the rest were 12-15 inches. There no other people on the lake. This is a great time of year to get on schools of fish and a good chance for some big ones. We used jerk baits and blade baits and fished from 3 to 30 foot of water.

My Dad and I were down from Chicago camping hoping to bring home some crappies. Doug knew right where to take us and what gear we needed. It wasn't long before we were bringing in the big ones. The great weather and Doug's sense of humor completed the package and made it a great day on the lake.

 We hope to make this an annual tradition and will definitely be calling Doug again.
