About Us

Capt. Rick's Guide Service

I am a U.S. Coast Guard licensed, fully insured, professional guide for over 20 years. I do intructional guide trips mainly on Table Rock Lake and some other area lakes.

I also do trips in Northern Wisconsin (Mid Aug.- Mid Oct) for trophy smallmouth.  

I have over 40 years of  bass tournament experience, and many wins, All my guided trips are instructional teaching fishing techniques and deep water tactics for bass. 

Most of all I love to teach kids how to fish and will provide all that is needed for an enjoyable trip on the water. 

Thank you for considering my instructional services and exploring my website.
