Booked 2 fishing trips with Eric Prey who provided excellent service: 1/2 day trout fishing on Taneycomo lake and 1/2 day bass fishing on Table Rock Lake. Eric was well prepared and very helpful. He knows where to go to find fish and is knowledgeable on how to catch them. Loved the scenery; especially at table rock lake. Eric was friendly and answered many questions about fishing and the lakes including current events and history. Fun trips!

“I’ve been fishing for over 50 years and have called the Ozarks my home for over 30. When I’m on the water the only thing more satisfying to me than catching a fish, is watching someone else especially a child catch fish. Sharing the fun and excitement of fishing is what motivates me to take people fishing every day.”

Branson Fish Tales

Come fishing on beautiful Table Rock Lake or Lake Taneycomo  and create your own “Fish Tale” with Captain Shane Pierce.

I have 2 beautiful daughters and an amazing wife Mary (which is the best catch I have ever caught).  They are my inspiration and my greatest blessings.

I have lived in the Branson area since 2004 but have fished Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo since I was a kid.  My family would come here on vacations and I fell in love with the beautiful Lakes, the Branson Area and the relaxed lifestyle here.  After years of asking Mary to move to Branson she finally agreed and now we get to call home what others call their vacation.  What an incredible blessing for which we are extremely grateful!

My family and I just finished a half day bass trip on Table Rock Lake with Eric Prey and Phillip. Eric called the night before to say winds were expected so two boats would be best. We stayed at Ozark Mountain Resort and they picked us up at the boat dock. They were timely and prepared with all the fishing equipment. Both Eric and Phillip were friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our trip and will be back.
