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 didnít 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.

Wow What great response form your clients that already fish. The last few guides I hired it seamed they just want to show me they could out fish me. Before my last trip I told the guy over the phone I need jig help. Everyone but me can do it. Fished out the day and never tried a jig. I have liked and learned from every guide I have hired. Im going to call this guy Biggs Thanks for the report.

You name the lake. Obviously the more gas I burn to get there the cost will go up. I'm open to just about anywhere.

I was so impressed with how much I learned and how much confidence I gained with a day on the water with James that I booked a second trip on a different lake. Didn't think it was possible but we whacked them even more than our previous trip. My goal with James has been to help me break down lakes and learn what a pro does when hitting the water. What to look for and how to get fish patterned more quickly. He spent a lot of time driving and teaching but the times we stopped he absolutely whacked them just to relieve any doubts I may have had in my mind. The man is a real fisherman. he starts the day off telling me "this lake is tough" and things like that. The guy catches 3 nice keepers off the ramp by the time I get the trailer pulled out of the water!

If you want to learn a new lake, you need a confidedence booster, or want to learn to catch fish consistently James Biggs is your guy. He will help you eliminate tons of unproductive water and get on the fish more quickly. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for the trip yesterday James. It was all I could do to not leave work and head back out that way this morning. That frog bite was insane. I think we should make a SPRO commercial!

That's the one and only! The bite has been good out there! You can fish shallow or shallower.

I've been wanting to get out there. Just can't justify buying the pass, and with the boat being stored in Lewisville, it's easier to go to Lewisville or Grapevine. Maybe I'm making a mistake!

Does it have to be an excite squarebill????? In all fairness you did smoke me and my RC. and yes I did go buy some excite squarebills. Your marketing ploy sucked me in. Not to mention your 10 fish for my every one!

Fished a tournament with James and he showed me some tricks with a buzzbait on docks that I still use. Fun fished with him a few times and always come away better for the experience. Have known him probably 15-20 years now and he has always caught them like that. Great guide, friend and person.

Thank You James,

Had a great time getting schooled on Lake Arlington. James took me out for a drop shot training course. All I can say is that my mind was blown!! I use to think there isn't much to fishin a drop shot but man was I wrong. Let me put it to you this way. He was nice enough to let me use his rod set up, same line and leader, same weight, hook and worm and he out fished me 16 to 2. And, to top it off, he caught a fatty that was easily in the 7 lb range with that fairy stick. At least I caught the first fish of the day smile. Cant wait to see the improvements in my tournament finishes next year just because of this one trip. He is a real stand-up guy and one hell of a stick. Thank you for the lessons and looking forward to the next trip.

I had the opportunity to go out with James and it was a blast. I learned more about this particular lake in several hours than I had learned in months upon months of fishing it myself. James kept it very simple and fun and showed me how to catch more quality fish. What I really liked was that before we even got started James asked me what I wanted to take away from this experience. He wanted to make sure that he was teaching me what I wanted to know and then he took the time to show me. This has most certainly been a eye opener for me and I am already counting down the days until my next booked trip with James. Do yourself a favor if you are needing help in a certain area or on a certain lake, call James Biggs and book a trip. I promise you that you will be glad you did.

Did we catch fish? You better believe it! I will be posting pics soon....... Pm or call James!!!

I would like to thank James for a great experience. Yesterday we spent the day on my home lake and it was awesome. I asked James if he would teach me his approach to eliminating water and establishing a pattern. It took him a grand total of 45 minutes to figure out a pattern. All the While coaching me on what he was doing, seeing, not seeing, etc... The speed and confidence that James has when he fishes is amazing. Like it has been said in previous post I learned more in one day on the water with James than I would have learned in years of trial and error, if ever. He kept everything simple and relayed the information so even I could understand it. I will definitely be booking another trip with him.

A shoutout to James Biggs he took me out yesterday on 2 lakes wheeler branch and lake granbury I had a blast being able to pick his brain about breaking down a lake, how to fish for suspended fish in deep water, how to better read my graphs, and a lot of rigging and fishing tips that will help with bait presentation. He did a great job of helping me gain confidence while keeping us around fish. A big thanks to him.
If you really want to step up your fishing to the next level contact him he's a great guy

We had around 60 bass today on Squaw Creek. 12-25' of water on C-rig, Drop Shot & 6xd. We only had 17lbs or so for our best 5. Just enough to get laughed out of the weigh in line had it have been a tournament. I'm headed back out there tomorrow. Fishing report coming soon.

I wouldn't even go out there if I couldn't do any better than that! bolt

I got to spend yesterday on the water with James and my expectations where exceeded, I had a couple of things I wanted to work on so we discussed them in length as well as many other things on the way to the ramp. Once on the water James broke everything down and we caught fish all day on a couple of techniques that I would not have considered in the conditions we where in. James is a great teacher and a great person to spend a day in the boat with, he explains things as they are happening working or not and he is funny as all get out, even though we just met it was like we had known and fished together for years. Give James a call you will not be disappointed!

I had the opportunity to jump in the boat the other day & all I can say is WOW. I now understand the difference in the weekend warrior & a tour pro. His ability to read new water & his graph is unreal. We both were video gaming fish up to 5lbs on his graph with a drop shot all the while talking me through step by step what to look for. I learned so many things that I feel like I need to go again to absorb all the info. I have taken guide trips before & this was nothing like those. I left the water confident that I'm a better angler than when the day began. If you book him you won't regret it.

I had a chance to fish with James recently and I was thoroughly impressed. This is not a guide trip, it's definitely a learning trip and James is a very able and willing teacher. We attacked a lake that James hadn't fished in 2 years like he would on any practice day from a "if they're not doing this, then we should check this" type of approach, and we were able to get them dialed in after a few hours.

I learned a bunch, and that was probably only 10% of what he told me. James will definitely help you become a better tournament angler. It's rare for a guy that's had success like him to be willing to share how he does it. Thanks again James!

Spent the day with James and it was just PERFECT for a newbee like me. I didn't even know he was was a tournament master. I still have a lot to learn, but basically I was fishing in the wrong spots, casting wrong, retrieving wrong, and just about everything else. I would have brought more of a tip if I knew I was with someone this good. The difference with James is he gives you guidance and he's very patient. This one trip will make a life time of trips more enjoyable for my whole family. And James thank you for your service in your job. It was easy to tell he is just an all around good guy.

I'm booking in the spring as well to get more advice and continue on the path to Jedi master like James.

I had an awesome day with James. I learned more then my brain could handle. So much info and such a different way of looking at things. Great job in teaching you to understand how to pattern fish. Can't wait to put what I've learned to use. James answered every question. So many little things that made huge differences too. It was insane when he put it all together and I seen it with my own eyes. I will be a repeat customer. Best money (investment) I've spent.

Went out with James on Squaw Creek. I have been fishing Squaw off and on since the mid eighties. I have caught lots of fish but never the 5 fish stringers needed to place in any tournaments out there. James took me to places I had written off years ago and caught fish moving very fast using methods I would never had tried there. If you have reached a plateau in your ability to find fish and catch them then I would highly recommend a trip with James to help get out of the rut and learn some new techniques way faster than your own trial and error. I plan to do another trip in the future on different lake.

I fished with James Biggs recently and it was the best educational fishing trip I've had. The confidence in when, and why to do things, bass habits, along with some tournament strategy would take me 10 years or more to acquire.

If you want to fish with more confidence and put more fish in the boat book him before your competition does.

If you want to fish with more confidence and put more fish in the boat for fun with the family book him now for the spring before somebody else does.

I already have another trip booked.

Got to go out with James on the 17th at Fork and had a good time and learned allot! Was a tuff bite but we landed 8 slots (4-5 lbs) and a few dinks. I learned a few new tricks of the trade and added allot to my tool belt when on the water. I was truly amazed at his teaching ability and style of teaching at that. He didnít just talk about "What he had done and accomplished", he showed me how to apply what he had success with and there is no better way to influence a student than a 5lb bass at the end of your line! I canít wait to apply what I have learned and I WILL book another trip in the spring! I hate spending that kind of money on a fishing trip but this was honestly an investment in my future fishing and well worth every single penny!

oh and dont let the z-7 fool ya! that dam thing will haul arse!

My son fished with James today, has not stopped talking about his trip since he left the lake. Their 5 fish stringer would have been over 20lbs. today. James taught him several techniques; from breaking down breaking down a new lake, using your time on the water efficiently, simplifying tackle selection and how to approach productive areas. My Son will be fishing the college FLW circuit this year and feels very confident about the things he learned today. He and I will both be scheduling another outing in the near future.

Hey everyone. I got to spend yesterday on the water with James on my home lake and it was better than advertised. The weather was great for Dec 30 which was a plus!
I booked with James because I wanted to understand how to breakdown my lake, eliminate water and establish a pattern. This is an area I needed help with. Not just for my home lake but in general.

The previous posts are spot on.

He asks a lot of questions to understand how I think on the water. It was good to validate some of the things I was doing correctly and realize the other things I needed to erase from memory banks. I know have already increased my chances of catching more and bigger fish with the information James shared with me yesterday. James opened my eyes to new techniques and new locations I would have never considered before.


TLDR: James showed me how to fish with less guessing. Eliminate water and fish higher percentage spots considering the features of the lake. And a few new "rigs" I had refused to try in the past.

I spent New Years Day on the water with James. What a great trip, it wasn't about the number of fish we caught this was a true educational experience that I know will improve my fishing for years to come. James's approach to teaching you what to look for on the water and how to pattern fish is unlike other guide trips I've taken. I wanted to learn more about the lake and learn new techniques and James delivered. Do yourself a favor and book a trip with James.

I just finished my second trip with James and it was everything I hoped it would be. Conditions were really tough but we still boated some quality bass. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and work on new techniques. He showed me how to pattern fish even under adverse conditions. I would have had little success on my own under these conditions.I feel confident I will have a better chance on my own the next trip out. I was impressed with his skills to say the least, I can't wait for trip #3.
Thanks Jeff

I am a couple days late in posting this but I went with James this past Saturday to a cold water lake in east texas. water temps ranged from 51 to 55 and James was able to pick up on a reliable pattern within the morning. This was an especially tough day for me because I was right in the middle of a full blown cold which I was feeling pretty tough as a result. James worked hard to keep the day fun and interesting and answered all my questions about seasonable patterns, bait options, water conditions, and we broke down the lake based on what he was able to learn in just a short time period. He evaluated water temp, water clarity, bait fish activity, and put together a nice pattern for the lake that as reproducible across the lake. He talked a lot about letting the fish tell him what was going on based on how the fish were biting and reacting. This trip was very enjoyable and well worth it!!! I hope to go again with him in the future.

I spent a day with James this past week and we had a great trip. James taught me a new technique that I have over looked for a long time and it was very successful. He also showed me things that would have taken me a long time to figure out on my own. James answered all of my questions and provided me with a plethora of tips that I can take with me everywhere I fish. I am very pleased with the trip overall and will definitely look to book another trip soon! Thank you James!

Ok, Saturday was my turn and we fished Squaw Creek. Rick at Anglers Pro Tackle had suggested James after I told him I needed help bad. This was supposed to be an educational trip - I wanted to learn to fish offshore structure, drop shotting and fishing a squarebill. I did learn a ton, but in addition, we absolutely whacked the big girls. No kidding, our top five was around 26 lbs! James did call it an exceptional day. One interesting point was how quickly James decided what lures not to use that day. My biggest takeaway was learning about suspended bass and how to go after them, even with a squarebill in deeper water. We ended the day with a tour around the lake with James pointing out places for me to try on my own. It was a great experience and I certainly plan to go again on another lake. Thanks James!

I got the chance to fish with Mr Biggs on Squaw Creek last Friday. It was a test for both of us to see if my favorite techniques with large swimbaits would produce as well or better than "normal" baits. Three casts into the morning I was already behind by 6lbs, and by the time I gave up on trying to convince those fish that my baits were better for them, James had already boated another 3 fish and was already pushing 20lbs. His knowledge of the lake and understanding the way the fish were setup on the structure was incredible. Everywhere we stopped he put on a clinic of how to fish finesse baits. Even his Carolina rig was finesse compared to what I'm used to. I finally gave into the temptations and proceeded to join him in the catching.

I've known James for several years but we never had the chance to fish together before now. He is truly a very talented fisherman, and a genuinely friendly guy. If you are looking to improve any aspect of fishing I would definitely recommend hiring him for an educational trip.

If you don't learn something from him on your trip, maybe bass fishing just isn't your thing!

JPeel,
We learned that the ol Squaw Creek fish wouldn't eat the big swimbait too well. I'm guessing fishing pressure has a lot to do with that.

I'm now booking May for those of you interested in an instructional trip.

Great day on the water with James Biggs on Saturday! We spent the day on Squaw Creek, learned a lot and managed to tie a PB and smash a PB, with a 6, 7, and 8 in a short amount of time. James was a great teacher and took the time to go over the where and why's of structure fishing. Thank you James!

I went out with James last week and it was awesome. I wanted to learn how to break down a lake to eliminate unproductive water and put a pattern together. James made it very easy to understand.

I was curious to see how he would put a pattern together for the day as it was windy and rainy. The temperature had dropped 18 degrees from the day before. We pulled up to the first spot and caught around 15, second spot 5. Then James wanted to try another technique. Made a run and James had 5 quality bites there. It was amazing to see a pro at work.

We ended the day with around 30 fish. Most people we talked to had caught between 0-6 and we spent just as much time talking and driving as we did fishing. If you're thinking about doing this DO IT.

my fishing partner and I had the pleasure of fishing with James this past week at an east Texas lake that has frustrated us many times in the past - after reading through these posts my expectations were pretty high and he did not fail to deliver, we were very impressed and learned a ton! (and also caught more fish on that lake in a short amount of time than we ever have) after taking the time to understand what we wanted to get out of the day over the phone James spent some time in the morning going over different rigs, simplifying our arsenal, and general strategy for covering water and finding fish quickly which were all things we had asked him to help us better understand. We then headed out to the first spot (about 5 seconds from the boat ramp) where we caught the first 6 fish of the day in under 45 min (I could still see our truck and trailer) - nothing like catching fish to reinforce the education he had just given us! In addition to learning several new techniques, presentation styles, and ways to identify high percentage areas to target fish James shared a wealth of general fishing knowledge and was genuinely fun to be around - I would highly recommend his services and as many here have said if you are thinking about it go ahead book him! It is a truly unique service and much different than any experience I have had with a traditional guide (I have been out with a number of local Fork guides and while all were top notch and put us on fish this is just a different kind of trip that will leave you feeling confident of putting fish in your boat when you are on your own). I will be heading out with him again to my local lake (Lewisville) at the end of April

I was able to go out with James and a buddy on Fork Friday. I was only able to fish one day due to a wedding. I will say that 1 day was the most educational day on the water I have ever had. James was able to show us what would have taken years to figure out on my own. It was excellent to see how to figure out post front conditions especially since you can't depict what the weather will do on tournament day. I gained a ton of confidence and will be able to cut out a lot of wasted time on the water. If you can book a trip it is a no brainer. Click the link on my signature to see some of the photos of the trip.

James and I fished Joe Pool today! We picked Joe Pool because neither one of us has been on it very much at all!

The purpose of the trip was to work on understanding seasonal patterns and using that knowledge to help eliminate water in order to find fish!

We spent the first 1-1/2 hour talking about what James looks for in a new lake, tackle rigging tips, colors, baits, etc.

Catching was secondary, but boy did we have fun!

We boated over 50 fish! Nothing big, but nice healthy fish up to 3lbs.

He's a natural!

I got to fish with James Biggs today, and guys, there is a reason there is 6 pages here of nothing but very happy customers! It was amazing to say the least, worth twice as much as what I paid.

The conditions were not ideal, but James had a pattern started I think a whole 5 minutes into the day. We caught fish literally all day, some nice ones, and he caught several over 4, and about a 7 pounder!

I wanted to learn how to pattern fish on any given day, and I now have ton more confidence that I can do that. The real beauty is how simple he made it to learn, and the tackle tips and tricks were awesome, it will save me a ton of money from here on out.

His teaching trips are worth more than I can explain here, if you are on the fence about spending the money, don't hesitate. He stays booked out for a reason, it is best time I've had on the water in many years. And I can't wait to get back out and apply what he taught me. He's just great people, I had a blast, and can't wait for next time! Thanks again James!

Fished last week with James. I'm a novice and find it so refreshing he's willing to spend time with me. 2nd trip with him and I've learned so much. I still have a long long way to go, but getting better with a large thanks to James. Going out tomorrow to practice what I've learned. James knows how to find the big ones.

Got to fish with James for the first time today. Had an awesome time and learned a TON! We were catching fish today in ways I would have never thought of. Definitely worth your time to book a trip with him. Awesome guy with a lot to teach. I'll definitely be a better fisherman next time I'm on the water alone! Thanks James!

Ditto to what's been said. A day in the boat with James and you'll be constantly learning something. I can't tell you how impressed I was. Much more than a "guide trip", this was a day of instruction on the water. Its worth the time and money!

Bruce Allen and I sponsored a young man from Belgium this month of Aug.. Stijn and I went out with Mr. Biggs yesterday and had a great time. I truly appreciate your time spent with him and his learning experiences will help him catch fish for years to come.

Sorry I could not get the picture you sent to my phone to load. Please post it if you like. This one is of our best fish.

Went fishing with James last week on Squaw. Best guided trip I've been on. Learned more on one trip with James than all other Guide trips I've been on, put together. Already booked another trip. And looking forward to upping my game even more. Thanks again James.

I just took my 2nd trip with James. Both trips have been absolutely eye opening. We had tough conditions with 30+ mph winds but still caught them well. Iíve always struggled out deep but James does a great job of simplifying what he is looking for and why the fish will be there. After catching many fish I feel more comfortable now that ever. He is super easy to talk to and is full of knowledge.

Since my 1st trip last year I have boated so many fish that I know I wouldnít have caught before. Patterning fish has been easier and my tackle has been weeded out and simplified. Last spring my daughter won a 140 kid fishing derby on his drop shot set-up. She had the top 5 fish in her age group. My attention to detail and my confidence is definitely at an all-time high. His service will truly make you a better fisherman so why wouldnít you book a trip? I will be back.

Also booking 1/2 price($200)private lake trips near comanche tx. There are a few 15-300 acre lakes out there. It's a great way to learn new techniques while catching fish.

Finally took the plunge and did a trip with James today. I've been having problems catching lately and today was terrible conditions. James broke down lakes and explained what I needed to do at a level that even I could understand. I didn't catch many but considering the conditions, I thought it was a much better day than normal. Have me the confidence to feel that I'll be able to go out there again and will catch fish regardless of the conditions.

I'll admit after previous experience with guides, I was skeptical but James is the real deal. If you struggle them you should really call James.

It's unusual for him not to answer by the next day on a PM from here. He is a fireman and maybe had to work or the PM didn't go thru. I have his number and can text him and let him know he is missing a message from you if you'd like. I went back out today to try everything that he showed me. I caught about 15 fish, missed the hook set on a few and had a big one break me off. I'm a believer for sure.

I have his number and we've had a few conversations but some things fell through and he has since gone MIA. Don't feel it's my obligation to chase him down either.


If you can't find em wind em.

James took me out to a good size lake last week to work on establishing a pattern. He hadn't been to this lake in 5 years. It was amazing how fast he worked to put a pattern together. He got us dialed in within just a few hours. We then replicated that pattern all over the lake and caught them at about every stop. We were so dialed in he called his shot multiple times. We ended with around 25 keepers and had well over a 20# bag.

His service is worth every penny and has been truly eye opening.

Thank you James for another awesome trip.

James Biggís style of guiding is not what most would think of as a guided trip. Ití a classroom on the water, in the truck and at the ramp. Anglers that want clarity to the bass fishing puzzle owe it to themselves to spend a day or two or three with him. Thank you James for being great instructor and a heck of a good guy.

We had a great day on eagle mountain with over 25lbs. This 7.81 was caught sight fishing. Minus the rain it was a great day!

Sorry about that Ranger 1, I was already book on the dates you asked about.

I apologize for forgetting to respond in a timely manor to anyone. Sometimes itís hard to keep up with all the questions. I want everyone that contacts me to become a better, more confident angler.

I fished with James today and was very impressed with his ability to find fish and catch fish with a variety of techniques. I learned some things on a lake I fish multiple times per week and can't wait to try them on my own. I highly recommend his services to anyone wanting to further their understanding of this obsession that we all seem to have. Unfortunately just loaded my cart at tackle warehouse...again!

A little late review, but I fished with James back in the later half of the fall, he's got a wealth of knowledge to teach. He really helped me narrow down the waters to focus on depending on the season, and it's a blast to go out now and be much more proficient with my day on the water. Went from spending all day casting at every section of the bank to being able to cut out a lot of water that isn't going to produce.

Had the chance to go on a teach trip with James on 5-5-18 to help me learn the seasonal patterns and to help prepare me for a tournament the next weekend on that same lake. I have never been to this lake and James said it had been about 5 years since he had been on this lake. So I pick up James at the ramp around 10:00 am and we spend about the first hour just talking about patterns and where the bass should be and after researching the lake map he picks a starting spot on a main lake point and right away I flip a 3-4 lber in the boat!! Then James caught a few more and he explained to me about key structure and how the bass were relating to it. So for the next few hours we found multiple spots with the key structure and we caught them at every stop and had caught around a 13-15lb bag by 2:30pm!! So Iím feeling really confident going into the tournament last Saturday and this would be my first time back out since my trip with James and all I can say is WOW!!!! I went from being an angler that was lucky to catch a limit to BOATING AROUND 50 FISH! during my tournament and winning a check that paid for my trip with James!!!! Highly recommended!! Thanks for your help James

We fished with James today and were NOT disappointed. We specifically asked James to school us on Summertime bass fishing in deeper water. He did a little better than that. His hour long summary of Bass fishing through all 4 seasons helped us understand why bass are where they are at certain times and what to do about it. Prior to our launching he took one look at our lake and predicted several things:
1. Bass would most likely NOT be off shore very deep.
2. There should be a lot of suspended fish.
Both predictions were spot on. He then explained what we were going to do under these conditions and caught fish at the very first stop.

James took the time to show us what to look for offshore in deeper water for the time when the bass will be there beginning in the next few weeks and continuing through the hot Summer months.

On a good day we normally catch 10-15 bass with maybe 1 over. With James today we caught at least 30 bass with 3 overs and we weren't even trying. I can't wait to get back on the water and practice what he taught us today.

I highly recommend booking "Coach" Biggs if you want to improve your Bass fishing.

Ever since I fished with James, fish have been jumping into my boat without me even casting a line out. The price of my boat has also doubled in its worth since heís stepped foot in it. There wonít ever be a day I get skunked again after just 2 trips with him! Catching 20 fish in an hour would be considered a slow day for him.. On a real note, he definitely helps you learn a years worth of fishing in just a few short hours. He helps the average angler start thinking and fishing like a pro. Looking forward to booking him again in the future. 10/10 recommend.
