I normally post mainly to the carp/rough fish section of this forum, believe if my first time posting to this section.

Probably coming to visit Dallas towards the end of February, looking to catch some monster blues (50+ lbs), not interested in numbers of smaller fish. Looking for a guided outing for one day, seen a few guides on Google, but would value your opinions as to who I'm best off booking with. Ideally would like to stay within 1 hours drive of Dallas, maybe Lewisville, Texoma, etc.

Thank you in advance for all your help.

For the best shot at the fish you are looking for. Capt Steve Barnes has been doing it a lot longer and better than anyone in the state, and that's a fact.

That's a bold statement! And by far not true, maybe longer but not better! Hire you one of them Lake Texoma boys, Cody Mullineux, Steve Nelson, Mickey Petree, Tommy Blancett. They paved the way for all the guides you see on this forum today. And that's a fact JACK roflmao

+1 Mickey Petree is my dad. Now that Im older I have taken over what he left off so he can enjoy fishing for himself. Cody, Steve, and Tommy are still hard at it every week. I will say I have been very lucky to learn for them best guides around when it comes to chasing Trophy Blues.

CATDADDY JR I have a question? When you we're younger did your Dad burn you out on fishing or make you go when you didn't want to? Or did he just let you do your own thing until you grew up? Just kinda curious because if you we're one of my boys, I think I would Prolly be in Hog Heaven Dude, but I might live worried sick though just for the simple fact that boating on the Lakes can be extremely dangerous at times. Escpecially at night! I have already put my oldest son through some pretty intense times on the water. Sometimes I think I shouldn't do that but I like having him with me when he's in the right mindset. I don't know though? I guess I just want to know what you saw in your dad that helped sculpture what you are today? Might be hard to answer?

I beleive that fishing isnt something you do its who you are. Back before we started getting into bank fishing and before Cody cought SPLASH we fished and hunted all the time. Im 1 of 3 brothers, and I can say im the only one that loves fishing and hunting as much as our dad does. Maybe because I was the oldest and got to go all the time i dont know, but I NEVER went fishing or hunting if I didnt want to go. If I wanted to go out with friends it wasnt a big deal. I wanted to spend time with him, and it didnt matter what we did together as long as we were together, and fishing was what we did the most of. So no he never forced anything on me that I didnt want to do. I loved fishing with my grandpa even before my dad started taking me out a lot. Fishing is in my blood. I have fished some really nice days with him and i have fished some really horrible days weather and fishing wise, but I always enjoy it. Im always learning something everytime I go out. We are super competitive so that helps us a lot. I want to do the best I can every time I do something, and he is the same way. Fishing is like golf to me (which i love to play) you will never beat it but only get better at it. Im just getting started in the guiding world and growing up with a dad and his friends that shared this same passon has only gotten me to the place I am today. I look foward to making my own name in the guiding world, and finally the time has come where him and I will tournament fish as a team.

Probably one the oldest guides around that puts fish in the boat everyday is Little D's guide service. One of the original guides in that area flag Look up his web-site tell him Big Sam told ya check him out......


If it ain't broke don't fix it...but go ahead and work on it anyway.....

Looks like everything's pointing to Tawakoni. Should be fun, as I've never fished that lake yet. Have about 5 guides to choose from, prices vary from $300 to $550 for a full day. Thanks y'all for your input, hope to have some nice pics to post smile
