Background
I have been on the water from the time I was several months old. I grew up fishing all of the Lakes around DFW and southern Oklahoma with my dad. I currently live right next to Lake Lewisville and fish every moment I can get and love to share my knowledge of the lake and targeted species with clients. My 2nd trip as a guide was with a family of 4, their teenage son walked into my boat and saw that I was barefooted while going over a few rules and safety items on the boat, he looked at his family very excited and informed them that their captain was barefoot and insisted that meant they were going to catch a lot of fish on that particular day. From that moment Barefoot Guide Service was born.
Techniques
I love chasing by hybrid- striper first thing in the morning and once that bite dies off I like to focus on the white bass or go and park on the brush piles and find the crappie. Live bait is key a majority of the year but we will do whatever the fish tell us that they want.
