Bradley’s Guide Service

Lake Conroe
Lake Conroe TX, United States

Bradley’s Guide Service operates out of Walden Marina on the beautiful Lake Conroe, Texas. Captain Bradley is an experienced guide who has been fishing Lake Conroe for over 30 years and will take you straight to the best fishing spots this vast lake offers.

Lake Conroe is conveniently located just north of Houston, Texas and is surrounded by beautiful homes and lush forests. You will find the 21,000 acre lake offers not just beautiful scenery, but great fishing too. It has a healthy population of Catfish and Crappie, as well as some monster Blue Catfish and Hybrid Bass.

Captain Bradley will take you fishing on his 21 foot pontoon boat that is powered by a 90 HP Force engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 15 knots. The boat is equipped with all the safety equipment and electronics you may need on a fishing trip, as well as a wireless trolling motor that will allow you to move along the shallower waters quietly and without spooking the fish.

Bradley’s Guide Service provides full and half-day trips, as well as multi-day and multi-boat trips. With many timeshares and resorts on the lake, it is a great way to experience the lake with someone who knows it best.  All equipment will be provided and the weather is always on your side as it allows for good fishing year round. The winter time is actually the best for catching lots of fish, especially the monster Blue Catfish that have become the new craze. Bradley alone has been featured on Houston news stations 3 times for his record breaking catches on Lake Conroe. Bradley’s Guide Service is a veteran owned and operated business.

I became a professional fisherman after the oilfield crash. It was to be a retirement plan, but it got accelerated a bit. As a single father of 3 children, I devised a way to support my family in an industry that I love and in which I excel. Thus, Bradley’s Guide Service was put on the map.

Guide did not clean fish which was disappointing.  Crappie didn’t bite well, but he put us on the catfish.
