Dave's Guide Service

About Us

There’s not a dad in the world who hasn’t taken the family fishing and experienced it: a full day of lugging everyone’s stuff, baiting hooks and untangling lines while his own fishing pole sits neglected in a corner of the boat. That’s followed up by the joy of cleaning everyone else’s catch (if there was any) for dinner.

It’s the smart guys who learn from their mistakes and hire Dave’s Guide Service. Dave Welch has fished and guided on Ozark lakes for more than two decades. He knows enough to actually guarantee customers catch some fish. Dave and his team are U.S. Coast Guard licensed and insured. Guides will bait the hooks, provide valuable instruction and even clean the fish afterward. That leaves Dad time to actually fish.

Beginners and advanced sportsmen will benefit from the coaching received from Dave’s Guide Service. Guided trips include instruction, equipment, bait, fuel and all the “dirty” work. Fishing trips take place on Taneycomo, Table Rock or Bull Shoals lakes for up to six people at a time. Pontoon trips are also available. Dave’s is especially good at helping young fishermen (as young as 3 years old!) learn different techniques that lead to less frustration and more fish.

Book a full or half day. Meals and even lodging can be provided for an additional charge. Show up with the family and actually get to fish!
