Tim May Fishing Guide Service - Lake Fork

Tim May Fishing Guide Service invites you to join Captain Tim for a fishing trip at Lake Fork during the early summer months. Tim has more than three decades worth of experience when it comes to Bass fishing. Whether you’re an old hand or someone who’s just learning the ropes, he will do his best to ensure you have a trip to remember for a long time.

Your boat is a 21’ Ranger bass boat that comes with a 250 HP Yamaha engine. Thanks to its small size and quality engine, you’re sure to reach the best spots very quickly. There’s enough room for up to three prospective anglers to fish comfortably. Captain Tim won’t be fishing himself during the trip, he will be helping you catch some fish and have fun during the entire trip.

When it comes to Lake Fork, Largemouth Bass fishing with artificial lures is the name of the game. Captain Tim is there to guide you in the right direction and make sure you’re set to catch some memorable fish. Be it in the morning or afternoon, Tim is ready to show you what makes Lake Fork such a great place to fish.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of a trip. Captain Tim will provide drinks and light snacks, so you have one thing fewer to worry about. A pair of sunglasses and a hat are highly recommended, and feel free to bring a camera to show off your catch later.

Member since December 2017
I've been fishing Lake Okeechobee during the months of December, January, and February, for the past 30 years! I am a former Maintenance/Machinist for General Electric Corporation of 31 years. Our plant was purchased by a foreign company, and I was allowed to retire at age 49. So as I move forward in life, I decided I wanted to be a guide, and do what I love to do every day, fish! I have been doing it for a short time, but I have many returning clients, who are very satisfied with my performance and fish catching ability!
