Tim Campbell and Mike Bridges of our staff, guide only in the winter season but are charged with keeping our summer guests updated on "hot spots" and "hot techniques" shared by other quests and drawn from their own personal experience. Their famous harbor service includes meeting and greeting most boats arriving in the harbor so you will have considerable daily contact with them.
We encourage guests unfamiliar with the lake to employ a professional guide early in their stay to help maximize fishing success. There are 10 or so area professionals who are well equipped to share their knowledge of the lake and their skills in catching fish. The guides typically meet you with their boat at Brindley's gas dock. Guide boats are well rigged with multiple depth finders, GPS and the latest electronic tools to maximize success. Most of their boats are comfortable for up to three guest anglers. Daily fees range from $300 to $375. While guides operate independently of Brindley's Harbor Resort, we will be pleased to assist with contact information and logistics in booking arrangements.
