Darkside fishing


Recommended Posts

Took Lucas out to introduce him to the Darkside with Ozark Trout Runners Capt Blake Harris was our guide.  Lucas had a great time, as did I.  Dont tell anyone, but Lucas beat me with the most fish, most species and the biggest fish. He caught 4 rainbows and a sucker. 

So, I am generally very conscious about life jackets, and gave Lucas the option.   While he chose not to wear his, the generation was turning off, and he is an accomplished swimmer, has taken life saving, and has had experience falling off his kayak in cold water.  (Like father like son) .  

The experience was a great one.  I have never hired a guide before, and I told Blake that I wasn't worried about me catching fish.  I just wanted Lucas to have a good time.  Let me tell you, he had a great time.  Blake kept up with us, making sure we knew he wanted us to catch fish.   I've read about people who had bad guide experiences.   While catching was slow to start, Blake was consistently trying to give us pointers, and just keeping the morale alive. 

When we left, Lucas told me the fishing was fun, but the commentary was awesome.  There you have it folks.

Glad you got out there buddy!  It's different from the boat ain't it. 

It is a different experience. I think I prefer to wade.  Lucas sure liked the boat.   I have always had better luck on shore.
