Capt Hollis Forrester Guide Service
One of our top picks in Sargent. Capt. Hollis Forrester’s Guide Service is run by a very passionate fisherman - Captain Hollis, who had started fishing at an early age and was influenced by his father. Fishing is in his blood, as his Great Grandfather, Grandfather, and Father were all avid fishermen, and whose footsteps he had followed in becoming a licensed captain through the United States Coast Guard. Captain Hollis will happily teach you the art of wading and drifting, which he believes are great fishing techniques for catching great trophy fish.
You will fish aboard his 24 foot Tran Cat flats boat, which was built in 2015 and has a capacity for 6 guests. It is powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 43 knots.

Went fishing on January 15, 2017
Captain Hollis and I were fishing for big trout. We were in search of that one big thump. Everything situation was ideal (water, wind, bottom surface and couple days after the full moon). We covered a lot of different areas with soft mud that hold these big trout. Unfortunately we were not able to get that one thump. Nonetheless I learned a lot that day fishing and I would recommend Captain Hollis to anyone. He is very knowledgeable in what he does and I will fish with him again.
