What kind of bait(s) will we be using?
That will depend on the conditions and the species targeted, we use both artificial and live bait depending on what works best.

Does the guide fish?
If you are using live bait, your Branson Fishing Guide may not fish. If you’re using artificial bait, or the fish appear to be sluggish, we fish for several reasons: To locate fish and establish a pattern for the day. If your Branson Fishing Guide catch a fish or two first thing off, it will build your confidence in the area we are fishing and the type of bait being used. To monitor movement of the fish, bait preference and changing patterns throughout the day to maximize your day on the water. At no time do we ever try to out-fish our clients. You can rest assured, you will always have full access to the area being fished, and our full and undivided attention in helping you catch the fish, not us
