Reason I say this is I see guides on here say when limit is done we done. I want to take My daughter on trip of her life and want someone that wants to fill or give an honest effort at a trifecta.I know it's hard and almost impossible but that is the kind of trip I want for her and shes 20 plus so not a kid anymore sadly.

No sir, it shouldn't end but be sure and discuss this with the guide beforehand just to make sure you're both on the same page. If you want to fish for multiple fish species the guide needs to know so he can be equipped to do so.

Lots of good guides post on the TFF. Check out the individual sections (Crappie, Striper, etc.) and you will see Reports posted from some of them. As mentioned above, ask questions of the Guide before hiring him/her, make sure they know what kind of trip you want, type fish you want to focus on, and make sure they understand you expect to fish a full trip. Good Luck and check us out at www.gonefishin.biz as we specialize in "family fishing fun". fish

Thanks!

Casey Armstrong that primarily guides on PK can fulfill that request. He is in my opinion the best guide on PK. Great at finding and ketching limits of sandies, Stripers, Crappie and he also placed third in the catfish tourney that had over 125 boats competing.

Not slamming anybody. But the trend on Texoma, is that once your limit is filled, your done. I know that there are other guides there who will give you what you want, but you have to hunt for them and agree before the trip. Like everyone else said.

Took my father to PK years ago for a guided striper fishing trip as a retirement gift. Caught our "limit" very quickly and it was over. Guide even stated it was illegal to release legal fish and game wardens watch them from binoculars to see if they are releasing legal sized fish. All BS! We drove a long way to spend the day fishing...not to see how quickly we could throw a few fillets in the cooler. As stated above^^^^clarify before you go.

My Wife and I sent with a guide on Texoma several years ago. This guy had the personality of a boat oar. He went to his honey hole and it took 45 minutes to get our limit of "just made it" stripers. I had said something to the him before we left the dock about doing some top water but he said no right away. Well, I guess even Mr. Personality was embarrassed about the warp speed of our trip and we sent to throw some poppers. We didn't stay out the full 4 hours but I did catch my personal best small mouth.


Be safe,

It's always best to talk with the guides before you set up a trip. I know on rayburn, for white perch, we left when we got our limit. Of course that was 125 and it took almost the whole 4 hours. I would think with a limit type fish that that's probably going to be what the trip is bases off of

Talk to the guides. I don't guide much anymore due to my daughters rodeo schedule and work but when I take people out I try to stay out 4 hrs. If we got a limit early I will go scouting for new fish or go big fish hunting. Just let the guide know what your expectations are.

I hired Jacky Wiggins to take myself and 3 of my kids out fishing on lake Lewisville. He asked what we wanted to target in advance and I said anything to keep my kids happy. We went out and immediately ran in to schools of white bass. Once that bite died down we went for blues. Not once did he assume we were ready to wrap it up. My kids still call that day the best day ever with Capt Jack!!

If you get an inshore guide in southern Louisiana, it will end even if the guide catches your limit. Also, better hope LSU doesn't have an 11am kick.

Have had this experience before, also. But I wasn't paying for the trip.

I've never used or heard of a guide that quits when you limit out. It's ALWAYS been
half day or full day and you pay according.

I'm glad you brought this up as I'll be sure and watch for this in the future because I would
never contract with such a guide.
