My name is Steve Carroll, I’ve been fishing since I could hold a pole and I’ve been guiding fishing trips since 1980. I started in the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida then moved to Texas and began live bait fishing for Stripers and Hybrids. I’ve been guiding in Oklahoma since 1999. I enjoy meeting new people who are interested in fishing or learning more about fishing.
My guide business has been getting bigger and bigger every year. I’ve always done it on a part time basis, since I had a full time job at American Airlines for the past 23 years. I retired from that job at the end of 2008, so now I’m guiding full time. I am available seven days a week.
I was the president of the Oklahoma Striped Bass Association for the three years. I’m a Pro Staff Guide for Lowrance Marine Electronics, Driftmaster Rod Holders, and Motor Guide Trolling Motors, Yeti Coolers, Costa Del Mar Sunglasses, and Zebco/Quantum rods and reels.
Most of my guided trips are instructional in nature. I specialize in customizing each individual trip to suit the customers wishes for booking the trip. The most popular subject is how to use the GPS and Sonar to locate and catch fish.
I especially enjoy introducing youngsters to the sport. There is nothing like the smile on a 10 year old after he has brought in his third Hybrid in 10 minutes. The fish catching action in April and May on Skiatook Lake will hook any youngster for life. Join me on the water to create a life long memory.
