Lakeside Guide Service

Whether you’re looking for a fish fry, want to learn some new things, or go fishing and relax with friends, Lakeside Guide Service has the right trip for you! Professional licensed guide Chris Daugherty grew up Crappie fishing in north-central Texas and has been fishing Lewisville Lake since 2009.

Fishing out of his 24’ Sylvan pontoon boat gives you maximum space and comfort. The GPS and wireless trolling motor allow your guide to focus on helping you catch fish and maximize your time on the water.

The boat can accommodate up to 4 people who can all fish at once. There is plenty of storage, but you’re welcome to bring your own coolers.

You’ll be targeting Crappie with your guide who is a Crappie expert. Expect to run into Catfish and White Bass, while learning all there is to know about fishing these waters.

Your guide will provide all the equipment you need, including rods, reels, bait, lures, and tackle. He will make sure to clean and bag your fish after the trip for you to take home. You’ll be using live bait prepared in advance, but you can use artificial as well.

Kids are always welcome as guide Chris has a passion for teaching and introducing them to an activity that will produce lifelong memories. There are life jackets of all sizes, so you can relax while spending time with your family.

Get ready to have the time of your life with Lakeside Guide Service, and book your next adventure with Chris!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
My love for Crappie fishing began with weekend trips with my dad as a young kid. From there I got into Bass fishing and fishing tournaments, mainly in East Texas. When I moved back to the Dallas area I renewed my passion for crappie fishing and have been fishing Lewisville Lake since 2009. I began guiding so I could combine my 2 biggest passions - fishing and teaching. Every day on the lake presents a learning opportunity. I welcome all ages and skill levels, from beginner to seasoned angler.
