About Our Guides & Equipment
Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock employees several full-time professional fishing guides. All have at least 10 years experience with us, and several have many more years experience. All of our guides are excellent anglers and hosts who not only know how to fish both lake and river, but how to conduct an enjoyable, safe outing. All the boats and equipment we use are new, clean, and in excellent working order. We conduct guided fishing trips all year on Bull Shoals Lake and the White River.

Lake Fishing

About Guided Lake Fishing - It's Great All Year! Take a guided trip on Bull Shoals Lake. Learn the patterns and techniques of clear water fishing while in a fully rigged bass boat with one of our professional guides. We recommend a guided trip because the fishing techniques used in the clear Ozark Mountain waters are far different from those used in other parts of America. A suggestion we make to all of our customers fishing this area for the first time is that they forget everything they have ever learned about fishing. Truly, fishing the crystal clear waters of this area is a unique experience. For lake fishing bring one light and one medium action combination. Regarding line and tackle, wait until you get here since conditions may change overnight. Our staff and guides will be happy to advise you on the right line test and best bait choice when you arrive. Most of the time you will be fishing for bass, but you may hook crappie, catfish, walleye, white bass, trout, or many other species. In a guided lake trip we furnish the boat, motor, and guide. You pay for fuel, tackle, bait, fishing license, and food if taken. We offer both day and night fishing trips.

River Fishing

About Guided River Fishing - It's Great Anytime Of Year!
The White River, which is just a few miles from us, is famous for large browns, rainbow, brookies, and cutthroat. It is also famous for unforgettable bluff scenery. A float trip down the clear, cold White offers the utmost in fishing enjoyment. Your guide knows all the places for you to have a chance at a mighty lunker like the one shown here. We use Jon boats, those odd-looking 20' long, wide flat-bottomed affairs that are peculiar to the Ozarks. You'll experience some of the greatest fishing experiences of your life while comfortably seated in a deck chair, floating quietly over shoals, rocks, and deep emerald waters. You'll watch towering bluffs glide by, see rolling green meadows, and forest-covered hillsides. The cares of the work-a-day world will fade away as you reel in rainbow and browns on this beautiful river. Some of the best fishing is in December, January, and February. During this winter period the big browns are active, and bald eagles migrate to the area. Regardless of the time of year, or water level stage, your Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock Guide will get you into the fish.
