Capt. Mike Yoakum Whitesboro, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Dave & Mike’s Guide Service offers some of the best Texas fishing possible! There is nothing more exciting than Texas Lake fishing, and our friendly and professional staff will guide you to where the bite is hot on every trip. We welcome anglers of all ages and skill level to join us for an adventurous day out on the water!  


Captain Mike Yoakum will be manning the helm as you enjoy your Texas freshwater fishing experience. Capt. Mike started fishing in Texas at a young age learning from his grandfather, a world class Crappie fisherman. Capt. Mike has over 40 years of experience Crappie fishing in Texas. His top priorities are making sure you are safe and having a good time on all his trips. He loves to meet new people, and nothing makes him happier than seeing his client’s face light up when they get a catch.


Your outdoor Texas fishing journey with Capt. Mike will take place on Lake Ray Roberts. About an hour drive north from Dallas and Fort Worth, this lake offers amazing fishing opportunities as well as scenic camping and hiking trails.  


Fishing will be done off our 20ft Express Boats that is ideal for North Texas fishing charters. She is powered by a Yamaha 115hp engine that provides a comfortable ride between fishing spots. She has enough room for up to 3 guests to fish at the same time and is completely wheelchair accessible. 


We offer full and half day trips that can start mornings, afternoons, and evenings. You will be provided with all the rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait needed to catch fish. Any fish you are able to keep will be cleaned and packaged at no extra charge. Capt. Mike can teach you about several fishing techniques including bottom fishing, bow fishing, drift fishing, trolling, jigging, and many more. 


Our main target will be the delicious Crappie! Crappie fishing is Capt. Mike’s specialty and he will be happy to share all of his insight on catching them with you. Some other species you can expect to see include Largemouth Bass, Catfish, White Bass, Striped Bass, and Hybrid Bass. 


Don’t miss out on all the exciting action Texas fishing can bring! Book a trip with Dave & Mike’s Guide Service today and get ready for a fishing charter adventure you will never forget!
