JL Guide Service

JL Guide Service is an experienced and family friendly operator that offers fishing trips in some of Arkansas’s finest lakes. Join them on the stunningly beautiful Lake Ouachita or Lake Greeson and enjoy your day catching fish in beautiful surroundings.

All you need to do is decide whether you want to fish for half a day or a full day. Half day trips usually last for 5 hours, with full day trips coming in at eight hours, including fish cleaning. JL Guide Service specializes in fishing for Bass, Crappie, and Bream, with Walleye also being available seasonally.

Your trip will take place aboard a 20 ft Bass boat whose 250 HP Yamaha engine will get it to the best fishing spots in the blink of an eye. The best thing about this boat is that it can easily be trailered to get you to the most convenient - and most fish-friendly - location. Up to four guests are welcome aboard and children are always encouraged to join in the fun.

All the fishing equipment you will need on your trip is included in the price, with all the necessary rods, reels, line, and lures being prepared in advance of your trip. Live bait will also be supplied free of charge if it is being used.

The fun doesn’t stop when you leave the water. Have your fish cleaned and bagged free of charge on return to the dock, and find out just how good a dinner of your own freshly-caught fish really is.
