Mike Yoakum Crappie Guide – Pilot Point

Are you ready for an awesome fishing adventure with Mike Yoakum Crappie Guide? Come down to Pilot Point for a trip with an experienced Crappie captain that will have you reeling in the fish before you know it.

Hop on board his 20’ boat, perfect for groups of 3. You can all fish at the same time, so everyone is having non-stop fun. This boat is suitable for anglers in wheelchairs – there’s a ramp available to board and you can fish comfortably from your chair.

The star of the show on these trips is Crappie, a top fish to catch and even better to eat. You can also target Largemouth Bass, Striped Bass, and Catfish. If you’re spearfishing, look out for Carp, Garfish, and more. There’s gear on board for everyone to spearfish or fly fish if they’d like. Two anglers can fly fish at the same time.

No matter your age, there is a fish out here for you. When accompanied by an adult, children of all ages are welcome. When not with their parents, children should be over 5 years of age. There are life vests on board for them.

Included in the price is everything you need to have a successful day of fishing: from the rods and reels, to the fishing license for the group, right up to the water and snacks, everything has been thought of to provide you with a hassle-free day. Live bait is prepared before the trip, so no time is wasted!

You should bring along sun protection and weather-appropriate clothing. If you’re in the military, ask about the 15% military discount, too.

I love being on the water and catching fish. I had the chance to learn from my grandfather – he was the best Crappie fisherman I have ever met! What's not to love about that? I wish he was still here so I could show him my spin on it. A lot of people may not remember the flasher way back when – that's what he used. But I see it in 3D and he would be amazed at the technology now! It's been my experience that once you start catching Crappie it just puts a smile on people's faces. When they are really feeding, it's great!
