Captain B's Fishing Guide Service

(50) Going fast!

Get out and enjoy your vacation the way it was meant to be experienced — in nature! Feel the ultimate connection to the outdoors on your day out with Captain B’s Fishing Guide Service.

Bring your family and kids with you. Let Captain Brian introduce them to the finest art of fishing and help them hook their first fish ever. There’s nothing better than seeing a child’s smile when they reel in a big one!

Explore the beautiful lakes of Branson, Springfield, and the greater Ozark area. Let Brian show you the local honey holes and the hottest spots around where you will be able to learn a new technique or hone your skills.

Enjoy Capt. Brian’s tournament-style approach while targeting Bass. Fly fish for Trout with the finest gear available. Capt. Brian has over three decades of experience tying flies. In fact, he runs a retail resale store for Outdoor Gear!

Capt. Brian is easy-going; for him, fishing is fun first and foremost. He enjoys entertaining his clients in-between the bites, sharing fish stories and jokes. You pay for the trip, Capt. Brian throws the fun in for free!

With Spotted, Largemouth, and Smallmouth Bass, Brown Trout, Steelhead, and Crappie all among the popular catches, it’s hard to resist a trip or two. All you have to do is choose which type of fishing suits you best – wading or fishing from the boat.

The boat is a 19’ Ranger bass boat with plenty of space for up to 4 anglers. It can cruise at a top speed of 60 knots thanks to its 175 HP Suzuki engine. The bass boat is well-prepared to put you on top of the hottest bite.

The trips are all-inclusive; all you have to do is purchase a valid fishing license.

If you asked me when I was 13 years old what I wanted to do for a living, I would have answered; "Become a professional Bass fisherman". I am living my dream daily and this is the kind of appreciation for my profession that you will enjoy the entire time we are fishing together. While in college I could not afford a Bass boat, but I could afford waders for Trout fishing. This is where I gained my passion for Trout fishing. The tournament Bass fishing came later. With several wins and top-tens, they have put me above others in this business in experience and success in the Bass fishing world. We will utilize those techniques for our success. I don't use live bait. We will be using proven tournament techniques while we fish.
