More Info




Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Josh Priest, I am 33 years old and grew up fishing with my cousin "Big Fish Guide", Randy Oldfield.

I've been fishing Lake Fork for over 20 years now. and I've been a successful tournament angler on lake fork for many years, including multiple angler of the year titles, also a Bass champs win in 2014, and Cashed many hourly checks over the years, in the McDonald's Big Bass Splash.

I began guiding in 2014 and I've really enjoyed the experiences with teaching kids and seeing people catch their personal best with me.

I guide on Lake Fork,Tawakoni and other east Texas lakes for Bass, Crappie, & Catfish.
Half Day trips- $300
Full Day trips - $450
Crappie trips - $300 for 2 people and $75 for additional person.
I supply all tackle and rods, but you are welcome to bring your own if you have a preference.

Lake Fork

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 22)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 5.99 feet low. The crappie bite on Lake Fork has been just a little bit finicky this past week. Best depths have been 13-23 feet with fish in brush and suspended on laydowns and trees, or holding on the bottom of underwater bridges and road beds. Minnows are still the go to bait and the smaller the minnows the better for finicky fish. Same goes for your hand ties and soft plastics. Downsizing can make the difference between a slow day and a stellar day in the heat of the summer. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service. Bass are good with 3/4 ounce shaky heads or football jigs in green pumpkin and orange or June bug in 14-25 feet of water off drop-offs or channel swings. Carolina rigs are good in the same areas with a 10 inch blue fleck or LFT ring fry in bluegill color good in 15-25 feet of water. Deep crankbaits are decent over long points and channel swings. DD -22 in chartreuse and blue, TW Ghost chartreuse and blue good over 18-23 feet. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
