Barefoot Guide Service

Barefoot Guide Service is a synonym for an exciting day for the whole family. Spend some quality bonding time with your loved ones and share the beauty of the outdoors together.

Owned and operated by experienced Captain Jake, Barefoot Guide Service specializes in White Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, and Crappie fishing. The trips are available both in the morning during the weekend and in the afternoon during weekdays. Live bait is the key through the majority of the year but it comes down to whatever the fish do.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is an 22’ Blue Wave center console, powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. The boat is equipped with all the electronics and safety equipment you’d need for a safe and productive trip on the lake. There’s enough room for 6 anglers to come aboard.

Anglers of all skill levels are invited to join in on the trips as they typically provide a lot of action and are fun for anyone taking part in them. You will primarily be jigging and fishing live bait around the lake, using various techniques.

Once you leave the dock, all you will have to do is relax and catch fish. All you should bring is food, drinks, a fishing license for anybody in the crew 17 and older, and a cooler to take your fillets home. Everything else will be provided. Your fish will also be cleaned and bagged by Capt. Jake.

Barefoot Guide Service welcomes you aboard!

I have been on the water from the time I was several months old. I grew up fishing all of the Lakes around DFW and southern Oklahoma with my dad. I currently live right next to Lake Lewisville and fish every moment I can get and love to share my knowledge of the lake and targeted species with clients. My 2nd trip as a guide was with a family of 4, their teenage son walked into my boat and saw that I was barefooted while going over a few rules and safety items on the boat, he looked at his family very excited and informed them that their captain was barefoot and insisted that meant they were going to catch a lot of fish on that particular day. From that moment Barefoot Guide Service was born.
