When you’re craving excellent freshwater action and you’re not sure where to go, Hooks Guide Service will lead the way! With Captain Tim at the helm, you have a chance to explore the waters of Harlan County Lake and fish for all the most popular game fish in the area.

Walleye is the most beloved catch in the area, but the lake also produces good amounts of White Bass, Striped Bass (also called Wipers). You’ll mostly be trolling or drift fishing to get these fish to bite, and if you’d like you can do some jigging. Capt. Tim will provide reliable Daiwa and Bass Pro gear, so you don’t have to bring your own tackle.

Your ride and fishing platform is a 21’ Ranger dual console that has everything you need for a successful day on the water. There’s room on board for up to 4 people to fish and fight their catch comfortably. Your guide will use navigational electronics to find the bite, and if you need to be extra quiet, there’s a trolling motor that will make it happen.

After a day of fishing games, if you’d like, the captain will clean and fillet your catch so that you can savor it as soon as you come home. Don’t forget to bring a cooler to put your catch in and keep it fresh. Also, remember to buy a fishing license before the trip, and stock up on your favorite drinks and snacks.

Capt. Tim organizes trips that are fun for all ages and levels. Families with kids, novice anglers, and pros are all welcome to come aboard and enjoy excellent fishing with Hooks Guide Service!

I have fished all of my life and I fell in love with it ever since I learned how to hold a rod. With time, I realized that I like taking people fishing as much as I like fishing myself. Walleye are by far my favorite catch and chasing them on the Nebraskan waters is always fun and productive. All levels of anglers are welcome to come aboard and have some fishing fun.
