Lake Fork

Because Life is Better at the Lake

James Henderson Guide Service





I would like to introduce myself and make your visit to World Famous Lake Fork the most exciting fishing experience you have ever had. I am a Full Time guide and have over 25 years of bass fishing experience in north east Texas. I was born and raised in the north east Texas area, hunting and fishing my whole life since I was old enough to walk.

My goal is to tailor a fishing adventure that lives up to your expectations and provide the fishing experience of a lifetime, whether it is to learn new techniques, catch your largest fish ever, getting ready for a tournament, or just have a fun day catching fish. My number one priority is making your trip a memorable one.

With 20 years of bass fishing experience, including 10 years of local tournament angling in north east Texas, I am a full time guide and am experienced not only on world famous Lake Fork but also lakes Bob Sandlin, Cypress Springs, and hot water lakes Welsh/Monticello (seasonal). From the novice to seasoned angler, I offer instructional trips for all levels. I only use artificial baits and all fish are C.P.R. (catch photo release), so future generations can enjoy this great sport.
