If you are looking for a great day on the water, to take home some delicious fish, and to learn about the different species you’ll be targeting, Ricky’s Guide Service is the perfect charter for you. With over 40 years of experience, Captain Ricky Vandergriff will get you on the fish and making memories in no time.
You will be fishing on a 21’ Ranger 520 Bass boat. This beautiful boat can comfortably fit 3 anglers, so grab your friends, partner, or even kids over 4 years old. With outboard engines of 225 HP, you’ll be on the fish fast. Capt. Ricky has been fishing for three decades on Lake Fork, and can comfortably boast catching many Bass over 10 lbs. You are sure to hook your personal best here.
Live bait will be provided, and kept nice and fresh in the bait tank. This will be bought before the trip, which means more time for you to fish. However, it will only be necessary to use when targeting Crappie.
These trips are great for the whole family – Capt. Ricky is fantastic at making these trips as educational as possible. You will learn about the different species that make this lake their home. He will also teach you the various techniques used to catch them, many of which he has honed in his many years of fishing.
You will need to bring along a fishing license for this trip. These can easily be purchased online and at the marina. If you have your own rods and reels, Capt. Ricky suggests bringing your own – you will want the extra edge when going against these big Bass. For those new to fishing, there are Lews rods available. Capt. Ricky is happy to fillet your catch for you at the end of the trip – you only need to decide how to cook this tasty catch!
