Hybrid, Striper fishing guide service on Skiatook, Sooner, Keystone, and Ouachita lakes. Hi, My name is Steve Carroll, my goal is to provide you and your party with a safe, memorable and enjoyable day on the water. I specialize in live bait fishing for Hybrid Stripers. They are the most exciting fish in Oklahoma. I use the lightest tackle possible for taking these oustanding fighters. Since these fish are stocked into our lakes by the Fish and Game Department a constant supply of hard fighting Hybrids is guaranteed into the future with no concern of endangering the species.
I’m the only full time Hybrid/Striper guide in this part of Oklahoma. I’ve been guiding on Skiatook and Sooner longer than any other guide on the lake. My boat is custom built specifically for this type of fishing. There is room for 5 anglers and still have lots of walking around room. My electronics are second to none. I’m on the Lowrance Pro Staff and I offer “On the Water” training for HDS and Elite models. My tackle is top of the line Shimano spinning and baitcast reels with Shakespeare rods. I use a Motor Guide Xi-5 trolling motor with Pinpoint GPS to silently find fish and to hold the boat in position when we are fishing.
Why Hire a Fishing Guide?
Hiring a professional guide several times a year costs much less than owning, maintaining, operating, and insuring your own boat. It also assures you and your party a safe and enjoyable experience. All you have to do is meet the boat at the designated time and place. We will furnish all life jackets, rods, reels, tackle and bait. We will find the fish and help you catch them. We welcome kids and adults.
One sure way to ensure you enjoy your trip is to make sure you and the guide understand the purpose you had in mind when you booked the trip. There are lots of reasons to hire a guide. If your intent is to learn your way around a new lake, be sure the guide knows this. If you want to learn how to use GPS and Sonar to locate fish, or if you just want to catch as many fish as possible, be sure to communicate to me so I can customize my services to fulfill your reason to book the trip. Each customer is different, I want you to get value for the money you’ve decided to spend with us.
