Eric's Elite Guide Service

Embark on a freshwater adventure with Eric’s Elite Guide Service! Join Captain Eric, who’s been guiding on Bull Shoals, Table Rock, and Lake Taneycomo full time for 21 years. He’s been passionate about fishing ever since he was a kid, spending time on the water with his grandfather. Capt. Eric’s main goal is making sure his customers have a successful day on the boat and enjoy their time.

You’ll be fishing on a 22’ Ranger boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. She’s powered by a 250 HP 250 engine that reaches the speed of 40 knots. The boat also has a wireless trolling engine, navigational electronics, a cooler, and a live bait tank. Offering a safe and steady ride, this boat is also equipped with all fishing gear you’ll need for your day out.

There are several fish species you can catch around here, such as Crappie, Walleye, and 3 types of Bass (Spotted, Largemouth, Smallmouth). If you want to test your skills on all of them, it’s best to take a full day trip. That way you’ll have the chance to change your fishing spots more often and use different techniques. Shorter trips usually require to specify what you want to go after.

All fishing equipment is covered by the captain. He also supplies bottled water and cleans your catch after the trip. You only need to purchase your fishing license and pack some snacks. Kids are welcome to join and catch their first trophy!

Eric’s Elite Guide Service offers a fun and unforgettable day for both families and groups of friends. Pick a trip and bring your loved ones!

Captain Eric has had a passion for fishing since he was just 3 years old. His grandfather was a resort owner and world record holder for Brown trout on the famed white river in Arkansas and he had a huge impact on Captain Eric. Some of Captain Eric's most vivid memories as a kid were spending time with his grandfather on the river. Captain Eric was just 10 when his grandfather passed away, and he had no idea that he was going to follow in his footsteps. You truly never know in what ways you may have an influence on children. Growing up, he would plant himself in front of the television with all his fishing gear and watch fishing shows. He used to dream of hoisting a big trophy on the National stage. In 2019, he fulfilled his dream happened by holding the trophy in the FLW Costa Series event on Table Rock Lake! He felt as his grandfather was with him that day!
