Come spend a day out on the water with Anders Guide Service and catch some fish! Captain Colten Anders will meet you in Fayetteville, Texas and take you on a wonderful fishing trip on Lake Fayette or Somerville. Captain Colten has the experience and knowledge to make your trip an exceptional one and he’ll gladly answer all your questions, so feel free to discuss with him anything you want regarding your trip before making a decision.

The captain uses a 21’ Bass Cat bass boat that runs on a 250 HP Mercury engine and can sit up to 3 guests. It uses quality GPS and fishfinder technology to keep you on the course all the time.

If you’re looking to go set the hook on nice big Largemouth, then go to Lake Fayette. It’s a power plant lake so it stays warm and keeps fish pretty active year around. The fish puts up a tough fight and you can often find big schools and have a day to remember. If you’re looking to fill some freezer bags, chasing White Bass on Lake Somerville is a perfect choice. You’ll catch fish on light tackle by spinning or jigging and you can keep all your catch if you want to. Kids are welcome to join the trip.

Captain Colten will supply you with all the rods, reels, tackle, and lures. You just make sure to bring your food, drinks, and license.

If you want to go out and learn something specific whether it be a technique or learn to read graphs, Captain Colten can help with that as well. Join him and have an excellent experience on the water!

    The captain prefers to find schools of White Bass with electronics and catch them using a vertical jig as it’s fun and fast paced. Sometimes you'll get a fun topwater bite when they are schooling. You'll fish until you limit out or until about 11:00 a.m. The captain will clean all the fish and bag it for you to take home. You two will meet and leave from Overlook Marina.
