Professional Bass Guide
U.S.C.G. Captain licensed since 1987

A little bit about myself. At 10 years old I started fishing with my Father, had my first bass boat in 1972-73 and started fishing tournaments through 1984. I fished from Indiana to Lake Okeechobee. Fished lots of tournaments on Ky lake from 1974 to 1980. I started guiding on Okeechobee Jan 10th 1981 at Slims Fish Camp on Tory Island, 1986 guided out of Anglers Marina Clewiston, FL. Also guided a little our of Roland Marin Marina at Clewiston FL. April of 1991 back to Ky lake to guide part time until 2010.

My home is 2 1/2 mile from Paris Landing and 6 miles from Beautiful Buchanan resort a great place to stay and start your fishing trip from.
Ky Lake and Okeechobee on strong windy days the water gets very ruff, a 15 mile run down the lake with rain and wind can make for a bad day. I will load you up in my Ford expedition and trailer my 22ft Storm Boat miles away if needed , for a good fishing start always safety first.

I have been lucky with finding big bass and helping my clients hook one is really great. My biggest bass for a client came on Okeechobee  12lb 13oz.., In 2016 so far a 10lb 7oz.
I love to put my clients on fish but you are only as good as the fish will let you be that is why I give a 110% on the water, we will fish hard and sometimes long so bring your lunch...Hope to see you soon!
