Bradley’s Guide Service

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.

Capt. Bradley will take you fishing on his 24’ pontoon boat that is powered by a 150 HP Force engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. The boat has 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.

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.

There’s a variety of options you can explore – full and half day trips, as well as multiday trips. With many timeshares and resorts on the lake, it is a great way to experience the lake with someone who knows it best. 

You’ll get all the equipment you need and the weather is always on your side as it allows for good fishing year-round. The wintertime 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.

Join Bradley’s Guide Service and explore the beautiful waters of Lake Conroe, making some great memories!

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.
