What some past Lake Fork Trophy Bass Clients Have to Say:

“2015 is the twelfth consecutive year that I have utilized Doug Shampine as my bass fishing guide on Lake Fork. I continue to use Doug because he is very competent and is very enjoyable to fish with. Customer service is a high priority for DPS Guide Service.

Through the years that I have fished with Doug Shampine I have come to appreciate his knowledge about fish location and the best bait presentations. This knowledge invariably translates into productive catches. On one very memorable day, I caught two bass over 7 lbs. within twenty minutes on a top water bait that Doug recommended.

If you want an outstanding and memorable fishing experience, I highly recommend scheduling Doug Shampine as your fishing guide.” -Jim Hillin  Cape Girardeau, Missouri

“I have been down to fish Lake Fork in the past a couple of times only to waste a lot time trying to find the fish and instead usually finding stumps. I have had the very good fortune this year to find Doug and be able get two open dates on his calendar. Not only did my brother-in-law and I catch some quality fish we can back to Missouri better fisherman. Doug made us feel right at home in his great Legend bass boat and very welcome to all his tackle, which resembled a floating Bass Pro Shop. We will be back ! Thanks again Doug” – Mark and Dave from St. Louis.

“I have been fishing every year with Doug since 2008 for spring bass on Fork. I have probably been on 50 guided trips over the years with 25-30 different guides. Doug is by far one of my favorites – He is very knowledgeable on Lake Fork and what is working for baits. We have fished in great and bad weather – He has always put us on fish. Doug has top notch equipment and his boat has all the latest gear and we never had any mechanical problems of any kind. For those new to Lake Fork, it is the best bass lake that I have ever fished – Every cast has the chance for a personal best record – Even the 4-5 lb bass fight like no other I have caught. I am still waiting on my 15+lb bass, but I am sure it is coming. Doug is a great guide and his service is second to none. Go to Fork and you will be hooked for life!” -Mark
