Lance was GREAT! Not only were we busy catching fish for hours but he also shared all sorts of information about several types of fish!! We had the best time!
Lance was very knowledgeable, informative, and personable. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a guide service.
Booked a Saturday trip with Lance, we got 30 cats, 18 whit bass, 2 striper we had a blast would definitely book a trip with Lance again !!
Striper conditions on Keystone were less than optimal… Flat calm, foggy, a bit too quiet, pleasant for the fishermen, not so much for the fish or the guides…

First, Lance’s boat is an absolute first class beast… Smooth, powerful, and loaded to the gills with technology and boy does he know how to use it.

Searching the lower end of the lake took a bit but he found them moving through places he obviously knew like the back of his hand. Sure enough we were at the right place at the right time and POW!!! They came barreling through and we had all six rods bent over MULTIPLE times and it was all we could do to reel them hogs in and get new bait out. All limits filled, 14+ pounds of fillets in our cooler and we were on our way in 4 hours with smiles that it will take a week to wipe off our faces.

Lots of guides can take you out for Hybrids, Cats, Sandies, or Crappie but Stripers are a different beast and Lance can sniff them out. I have fished with multiple green country guides and can say that Lance is a class guide runs a first class outfit that will leave you smiling for far longer than your trip. Book with absolute confidence!

“Had the privilege of fishing with Lance again today and got a big surprise; Dom joined us to I had not 1 but 2 guides!  I was also blessed to have my grandson Hunter join us on this trip.  As soon as we got on the water Lance went to hunting with his electronics.  He has a PHD in interpreting what his screens are telling him.  I have fished all my life and I’m amazed and totally blown away how good he is.  Well, it was extremely cold out there but the fishing was HOT!  We limited out with 30 really nice blue catfish; seven of our fish were from 12 to 19 pounds and another three 8 pounders.  What a day!!!  So, if  you love to fish do whatever it takes to get on the water with Lance or Dom;  you will probably have the GREATEST day of fishing you have ever had in your life.”      -Bill Mikell

“Fished with Lance today, Monday, Sept. 10, 2018. Bite was kinda slow, but Lance kept working and moving until we had a nice mess of Blues. On the last stop, Grandson Sean caught a 50 lb Flathead, pictures all around, then released the fish to swim and make babies. Grandson Skyler caught a 20 lb blue, also pictures and release. Fun trip. Lance was pleasant and hard working and knows how to catch those fish. I highly recommend him”      -Ron Schoonover

“Lance put us on the fish. We never stayed in 1 spot for long. He also never seemed satisfied with the amount of fish we caught, he always was looking to put us on bigger and better fish. He was fun and personable, laid back yet professional. His boat was large and was decked out in the latest top of the line Lowrance gear. All in all a wonderful trip with a wonderful guide. Lance will definitely be seeing me again soon.”       -Jansen Rigney

“We went with Lance in 2016 and it was a crappy day. Weather changing constantly. We caught a few here and there until he got us on a school of sand bass and we killed em.

“Amazing trip with Lance and his deckhand! Great guys who put you on the big fish!!!”        -Melanie Taylor
“Had the trip of a lifetime yesterday with Lance. He is by far the best guide I’ve ever seen. Lance is amazing on his electronics; and taught me a lot of tricks to really up my game. He actually targeted trophy catfish! I caught not one but two magnificent trophy fish back to back! I can’t tell you how much fun it was they fought so hard it felt like I was hooked up to a truck. My arms burned so bad I could hardly raise them and in the boat was close to 90 pounds of catfish- you couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. We added 6 more eater size catfish to our total after that. Lance is the kind of guy you would want for a neighbor. My wife Missy was sick and unable to join us that morning but Lance went way over what most guides would do. We picked her up from where we were staying and after lunch took us back out so she had a chance to catch a fish also. He stayed a couple hours longer than the normal guide trip; what a first class guy and does he ever know his stuff. I can’t thank him enough for all the memories – we will be back!!!”       -Bill Mikell

“Lance took my wife, dad, brother and I out for out for our very first ever guided trip this morning and we have not stopped talking about it since. We chased the sand bass around for a couple of hours but he finally pinned them down and we had at LEAST one fish on the line with every cast. I couldn’t have asked for a Better guided trip and if I have a say in it I will be back next year to see him again! A sore wrist from catching so many bass is a good problem to have lol”     – Joey Herrman
