We were lucky to get an unusually warm and beautiful fall day on Table Rock Lake! The water was as still as glass. Our family of 4 (kids age 10 and 11) were looking for some outdoor activities due to the pandemic. Rick was ready to go with worms, poles for us. He took us to some great fishing spots and we caught bass and bluegill. I didn't want to touch the fish or the worms so this was my kind of fishing!

There is probably a limit to how much I can write, so let me just say this: Captain Aaron is knowledgeable and teaches the "tricks of the trade" without intimidation, he knows exactly where the fish are (and believe me, this lake is enormous!), he has a "down to earth" personality, and it is obvious that he loves what he is doing. We had the most amazing 6 hours on the most beautiful lake we have ever fished. On a personal note, thank you so much for being there to help me perfect my cast, bait my hook, take the fish off, untangle my line, ect. I'm sure my poor husband has never had such a care-free fishing trip! My only suggestion is that you need more tip options on your card scanner. The max tip was $30 and you deserve so much more than that!!!Thanks again for a great day!

We had captain Aaron today to guide us around Table Rock Lake while visiting for the weekend. I had never fished before while others in my group had, and Aaron was enthusiastic and informative the entire time and catered to all levels of knowledge and experience. There was never a dull moment, even when waiting for fish to bite. Aaron answered all of our questions, was great to be around, and was fully immersed in the experience helping us have a great experience. I would definitely recommend Aaron. He moved us around the lake to fishing hotspots and helped us come home with two bags of filleted fish!

We had Captain Aaron for a morning trip. Prompt, on time and put us on the fish. He also very pleasant and easy to talk to. He explained to the boys how and why we fishing the way we were. Super nice guy and made nice work of a short trip. I recommend to anyone. Great guide ...great service for the price. Caught 40-45 fish in our short trip!

Captain Aaron was Fan-fishing-tastic! He put us on the fish, and kept us slaying them all day. I maxed out on Bass in the first 30 min, and our entire boat stayed on fire for the length of the trip; from fatty Blue Gill to Walleye & Shell Crackers - think we covered em all :) What a great trip! He was patient with the kiddos, and kept it fun throughout the trip. Thank you for the memories Captain Aaron!!!
