I spent the day on a local lake (i wont say which) with James today. He is offering a teaching service, at least that is the best way that I can describe it. What he did was break down the lake into seasonal patterns, showing me key areas and details that would have taken me years to learn on my own. After today, I feel more confident about the lake than I ever have before.

I have been out on 3 or 4 guided trips at Fork over the last few years, and haven't learned half of what i did today. I guess the reason is that most guides that take you out are simply trying to put you on fish for that day. His service is completely different. We did spend some time fishing, but a lot of the time was spent touring the lake and discussing what would work and when, graphing humps, points, rock piles, and things like that.

He will go to just about any lake near the Metroplex and do the same thing. I feel like I will probably save as much money on fuel over the next year or two not wasting time on unproductive water as I spent on his service today. It was completely worth the money, and I am actually considering doing it again for another lake.

For any of you guys that don't know James Biggs, he has fished pro for a few years with good success and won countless local tournaments over the years. If you look at the FLW results from this season, there were only 2 tournament days that he didn't have a limit, and he had 4 on both of those. That is what i call consistency.

I don't feel comfortable just giving out his number, but he is on this forum, and i'm sure that he will respond here with his contact information.

You are going to have to teach me how to "video game" fish better very soon. I don't like it much, but I want to be more versatile. I hate seeing them and not being able to capitalize on those fish.

Had a great time fishing with James today, with the lake turning over fishing was a little tough, but he figured them out by the end of the day. James boated 30 fish and I caught 12 I believe. Not the numbers I have been catching but the fish were not really eating very well. I learned a couple completely new techniques today that I will sure have to practice with after seeing them in action. James made a tough day very enjoyable on the lake, and I'm looking forward to our next trip and also looking forward to learning more with him next time. Thanks James for a great day on the water and offering this wonderful service.


Here are a couple of the picture worthy fish today no giants but sure beat setting at home.

I was lucky enough to hit the water yesterday with Mr. Biggs. You guys owe it to yourselves to get out on the water with James. We went to a lake that I frequent but have been struggling with lately. I think a lot of us have been struggling with this particular lake lately. James opened my eyes up to a whole new world. He pointed out things I honestly think I would have never figured out in a lifetime of fishing. Stayed up half the night writing down and thinking about all the information James provided me.

I know we all think we are good and whatnot but a true professional is a different breed of character and sees things a lot differently, at least for me. The tips, tricks, and information I gained in a day on the water with James are priceless. He took 20 years of fishing experience and condensed it down to what I needed to know to become a great angler on this lake.

Absolute best money I have spent on fishing. I joked with him yesterday and told him I didn’t want anybody else to find out about him. I am fairly certain a lot of things we discussed yesterday nobody else is doing and I wanted to keep it to myself but like I said you guys owe it to yourself to spend a day on the water with this guy! I creep on here constantly never posting much but after yesterday I feel like you guys need to know how good James is and how much he can improve your skills and confidence. I am pretty sure James spent more in gas driving me around explaining and showing areas of the lake to me than I paid for the fee!

Fishing aside James is a great guy. Had a lot of fun and am thankful for the time on the water with him yesterday. Give him a shout and you will not regret it!

I think this type of instructional trip has probably been needed for a long time. For someone with James experience and time he has put on the water to develop the knowledge and technique's needed sets up perfect for a trip that he can pass along information that like you said would take forever to learn on your own. I am sure the learning curve is cut tremendously which will give you the opportunity to start using tips and technique's immediately which should only make you a better angler.

Thanks everyone. I'm excited, but not shocked by the response I've gotten from those who have gone out with me. I remember when I was young trying to improve but not having a clue what the next step was. I'm glad that today I'm able to help other anglers with that.

Got out on the lake today and took what all James showed me and absolutely whacked them. Nothing huge but caught lots of fish on a lake I've really struggled with. Wife was with me catching some rays and she's my biggest critic. Thinks I suck because I spend all my money on fishing and don't win every tournament I enter! It was going so well she picked up a rod and caught a few herself. Talked to a few other boats on the water that stated they hadn't caught anything or were having a tough time.

Thanks again James. Today was proof your service really works!!!

Had James come out today and show me how to break down a lake and how to prepare for a tournament. All I have to say is he is the reel deal. James knows what he is doing. We started off at the ramp by breaking down the lake. While at the ramp there was a tournment group meeting a James asked if I wanted to fish the tournment. I told him no as I was think to my self he has never been on this lake and I know how hard it can be. Well that was a mistake. James showed me how to break down creek and find fish in the at the same time not to get stuck to one bait and what bait to use to find them. By 9am we had 50+ fish that we had boated most of that 50 was by James. I all I can say is if you want to learn how to fish like a pro and be treated with class then book James. He shows that you don't need a bunch of sponsors and fansey equipment to be a top class fisherman.
