Vest Fishing Guide Service

Take in the beautiful nature of Isle Du Bois State Park as you fish the pristine waters of Lake Ray Roberts. Join Vest Fishing Guide Service for a lovely day in nature while you explore the best lake fishing spots in the area. Your guide Jason knows the lake like the back of his hand and has been catching White Bass and Hybrid Striper on it for years!

You’ll spend the trip fishing off of a 19’ Falcon center console, powered by a 150 HP Mercury outboard. The boat’s capable of speeds up to 40 knots, allowing you to waste no time getting to your fishing spots. The design of the boat allows up to 5 anglers to fish at the same time comfortably while its onboard fishfinder will help you stay on fish for the duration of the trip.

Although the charter is specialized in White Bass and Hybrid Striper fishing, depending on the season, Jason also likes to target Crappie or Catfish. On all Vest Fishing Guide Service trips clients will be provided with rods, reels, and tackle as well as live bait that. The guide will either catch or buy live bait ahead of the trip so that you can begin fishing right away. Live bait is always included in the price. At the end of the trip, you can also get your catch cleaned and filleted.

All that’s up to you to bring is your choice of food and drinks, sunblock and a fishing license for all anglers between the ages of 17 and 65. The boat ramp is located in the State Park and is surrounded by amenities such as a swimming beach, tables, bathrooms, camping, and horseback riding. The parking is free, but the park entrance costs $7 per vehicle.

Now, all that you have to do is set aside a date and come join Vest Fishing Guide Service on the water!
