Fish On Guide Service

Get your fish on with Fish On Guide Service! From action-packed, reel-bending action, to exciting bowfishing adventures, the Grand Lake has it all. Setting off from Grove, OK, you’ll have the winding waterways that make up this lake at your mercy. Captain Nelson Watson grew up on these waters and knows all of the productive spots to find the biggest fish. With a 95 lb Spoonbill catch to his name, rest assured you’re in for a thrilling day.

Trips run year-round, so the boat needs to combat all weathers. Fear not, this 21’ Tracker aluminum fishing boat comes with a heated, enclosed area to keep warm during the winter. Equipped with a Lowrance 12” fishfinder and a GPS navigational system, you’re sure to be on the biggest fish all day long. Water and sodas are provided for you to keep hydrated as you drift along the lake, and you’ll be powered by a 115 HP Mercury Jet engine.

Home to huge Catfish, ancient Spoonbill, and delicious Crappies, you’re in for a day to remember, whichever trip you choose. Troll and wait for the screech of the reels, before battling it out against these monsters. The fight of your life awaits as you try to reel in these big boys. During the summer, go after non-game fish, such as Carp and Garfish by bowfishing. Get those arrows flying into the shallow water as you catch a delicious treat to take home.

You’ll be fishing with top-of-the-range Penn and Meat Hunter rods and reels. If you’re a newcomer to fishing, let Capt. Nelson know and he’ll bring a first mate aboard to give you a helping hand when reeling in these beasts. With something on throughout the year, there’s no reason not to book with Fish On Guide Service. Get your fish on and see why the Grand Lake is so-called.
