Professional Guide Service – Kentucky Lake

(1)
Going fast!

Get ready to explore Kentucky Lake alongside a seriously experienced and knowledgable guide! Captain Billy Ross Doyle is a freshwater fanatic who has over 50 years of experience when it comes to targeting Largemouth Bass. If you’ve always wanted to reel in this freshwater favorite, then come aboard Professional Guide Service charters. Get ready for an exciting angling adventure that’ll see you exploring the lake’s secret fishing hotspots!

Capt. Billy is an avid angler with plenty of fishing experience, and he even has some freshwater fishing tournament wins under his belt. He specializes in putting his guests on huge Largemouth Bass, as well as tasty Crappie! He offers year-round adventures exploring rivers and lakes, and loves introducing his guests to hard-to-reach, hidden hotspots. If you want to take in some stunning scenery as you reel in your catch, Capt. Billy knows just where to go!

You’ll be traveling on board a 20’ BassCat bass boat. She can accommodate 2 guests alongside your captain. This makes her the perfect vessel for anglers who are looking for a peaceful (until the Bass bite, of course!) and productive day on the water. She’s equipped with top-of-the-line navigational and safety gear, including fishfinder, GPS, and life jackets in a variety of sizes.

Capt. Billy likes to begin his trips by telling his guests all about the fishing grounds they’ll be exploring, as well as showing you the best techniques to use for your dream catch. You can expect to jig, spin, and more, depending on whether you’re targeting Largemouth Bass or Crappie. Capt. Billy’s vessel is also decked out with fighting pedestals, so don’t panic if you hook a trophy-sized Largemouth Bass – you’ll be able to fight back!

Your captain will make sure that you’re equipped with top-notch rods and spinning and casting reels, as well as a fiberglass jigging pole – all you need to bring is a fishing license. Join Professional Guide Service for the freshwater adventure of a lifetime!

Capt. Billy has an impressive 50 years of experience when it comes to Bass fishing. He's been running trips on and off for 25 years, and specializes in freshwater fishing – especially when it comes to hard-to-reach, secret river and lake locations! In particular, he loves introducing guests to his favorite section of the Wolf River, which has beautiful scenery, lily pads, and marine life, as well as some top-notch angling action. He's also been taking part in Bass tournaments since 1980, and won the BFL at the Ross Barnett Reservoir in Jackson, Mississippi. The biggest Bass he's ever caught measured in at an impressive 12 pounds 6 ozs. Capt. Billy has a true passion for freshwater fishing, and he can't wait to introduce you to his favorite locations!
