Table Rock Guide Trip

Table Rock Lake

I decided to go down to table rock lake for an outing to try my hand at drop shotting and to learn my lay of the lake since it was my first trip to this lake.   To help me out on my trip I decided to hire Rick’s Chauffeured guide Service and my guide for the day was Dan Boyer.

The day started bright and early and I had a great anticipation from fishing Table Rock for the first time.   Needless to say my day didn’t disappoint from the very first in which I hooked a double on my crank bait to the last bass I caught out in 35 feet of water with a drop shot.

The day started off by throwing a crank bait towards he bank while the boat was sitting in about 15-20 feet of water with a fat free shad.  In the hour or so while we threw the crank bait I caught a 8 Largemouth and 4 smallmouths including another double.  (See Picture).  Plus the guide Dan reeled in a nice Largemouth.  (See Picture)


Next we moved out to do some deeper water fishing. /crank bait fishing in which I reeled in another 8 largemouth/Kentuckies.  I did hook into a few 4 plus pound bass, but lost them while using the shakey head when they jumped out of the water.

Next we  went out to 35 feet of water and did some drop shotting.  We then caught about  another dozen Kentuckies.  This was my first time drop shotting and guide Dan really showed me the ins and outs so I can add this technique to my arsenal.   Overall this experience was top notch and I highly recommend this guide service .


While I did bring my own gear to fish with the guide service provides gear for those who don’t have any.  This was a great opportunity as the guide service uses RAZR rods.   I have had the opportunity to use these rods as an ultra lite for crappie fishing and it is an amazing rod so I decided to take the opportunity to use the rods and they are absolutely amazing.  In fact  I plan on switching exclusively to RAZR rod for all of my fishing techniques.
