Dodson Guide Service

What better way to escape the stress of everyday life than by hitting the lakes? Head down to Hollister, Missouri, and get your hands on some incredible Table Rock Lake fish with Dodson Guide Service! Captain Robbie Dodson is a professional angler with over 35 years of lake fishing experience, who would love to welcome you onto his boat.

Hop aboard a 19’ Ranger bass boat, ideal for up to 5 anglers. This efficient fishing vessel is powered by a 200 HP engine and is equipped with GPS and Fishfinder to aid you in your search for the fish. If you prefer to fish with live bait, you’ll be happy to know that there’s also a live well on board to keep it fresh.

Table Rock Lake boasts a fantastic Bass population and you’ll have the opportunity to get your hands on Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted Bass. That’s not all, either. You can also hook into Walleye and delicious Brown Trout!

Capt. Robbie will provide all the fishing equipment you need for a successful day, as well as drinking water. Feel free to bring along your own food and drinks and anything else you’ll need for a comfortable day out. Most importantly, don’t forget to purchase a fishing license beforehand.

Dodson Guide Service is a family-friendly charter so bring along the little ones and make some memories to last a lifetime!
