My husband and I had been on guided trips on the White River, but never at Branson/Lake Taneycomo. We looked online for a guide and found John. We did not know him, nor anyone who had ever used him. We can say that he is definitely the real deal. We caught over 60 trout and had four great hours of fun fishing! John is a friendly guy with a great personality. Being a FLW Champion, he knows how to catch the trout and does not disappoint! Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned fisherman, you will enjoy fishing with John.
