How to Book a Trip

To schedule an excursion, you can submit the requested information on the contact page of this website or call, text or Email with any questions that you may have. If you're not sure which lake that you would like to fish, I can make suggestions based on current lake conditions and possible tournament schedules that may conflict with a particular date on the lake. We can then decide on a place and time to meet.

My Story


A little about myself


Ben Robertson 

Licensed Fishing Guide

For a​s long as I can remember, fishing has been my passion. I was born and raised in Louisiana where I would spend hours fishing for catfish on the banks of a bayou.

  I joined the United States Marine Corps in 1992 and was stationed in southern California where I met my beautiful wife. I am proud to say that we are celebrating our 25th anniversary in March of 2019. We have a brilliant son that is attending a local college and majoring in mechanical engineering.

  I have lived and fished in North Texas since 2001. Since I began fishing for largemouth bass over thirty years ago, I have learned that every day brings a new challenge and every lake is unique. I have fished the clear reservoirs of Southern California, the bayous and lakes of Louisiana and finally made it to Texas!

  There are several great bass fishing lakes in this area and Joe Pool and Grapevine Lakes are two of my favorites. I would appreciate the opportunity to share my knowledge of these great fisheries with you and make a new friend in the process.
