I have fished with both Clay Yadon and Pat Small. I would fish with either again in a heartbeat. But, my first choice would be to call Yadon and tell him what you actually what you want to do, keeping in mind that 4 guys in a boat is really a full load. You will catch fish with either. I am pretty sure any of the professional guides working Lake Whitney will earn the money they get paid as well as teach you some things about fishing. I have my own boat and fish Whitney a lot but I still charter a guide a couple of times a year to see what the professionals are doing and it's fun to let someone else do all that work occasionally.
