Went out with guide Shane Eustice of Hook 'Em Guide Service Saturday on El Dorado lake.Barry Dunn with 2 large crappie with Hook'Em Guide Service Fished for about a half a day. We caught probably 50 to 60 crappie. The largest probably a 15" with 4 14" and 12 other keepers. Put the rest back. This is the 3rd time that I have used Shane as a guide on El Dorado. He is smart, fun, and just a nice guy to fish with. I couldn't give a better recommendation. I realize that hiring a guide is not everyone's cup of tea. But, if you want to get on fish and have a great time, Shane is the man to go with. I have no other association with him except as a fishing guide. We were single-pole jigging mostly along river channels.

I went out and fished El Dorado Lake with Shane after he put up with my many e-mails asking all kinds of questions. Went directly to a hot spot and began catching Walleye after Walleye. At one point we had fish on all 4 lines that
were out. I caught at least one keeper Walleye and a nice Wiper about 24" long. My questiones to Shane were particularly related to boat electronics and we rode around for a couple of hours at my request with Shane showing me
what different objects and fishing places and what they look like on his Lowrance HDS12 Touch. I have been to lake Guerrero Mexico, fished some of a million acres swamp down by Tampico, Mexico, both all-inclusive, & OH Ivy
with guides. I learned more from Shane in the half day I spent with him than all of the other trips combined. Shane is very knowledgeable and is not afraid or too arrogant to share it. I was going to purchase a Hummingbird depth finder but, after Shanes presentation and information, I have bought a Lowrance. I'm also purchasing a rod & reel set-up similar to Shane's at Cabela's today. You sponsors are doing well with this guy. Barry.

May 2013,

My brother Wes and I met Shane at El Dorado Lake on a Saturday morning hoping to get in on some good Walleye fishing. We had never fished for Walleye before, and were excited to experience something new. Our trip with Shane exceeded our expectations in many ways, and we had an excellent time! The morning started off quickly as Shane got us onto a hot spot. We were hauling in White Bass, Wipers and Walleye sometimes as soon as our lures hit the water. Wes even brought in a monster 24 inch Walleye! Overall, we caught our limit for Walleye, all of which came in well above the cut off point. Shane even got us into some Crappie at the end of the day, another first for us! Besides fishing, Shane did a great job of teaching us about successful fishing techniques for our future outings, and he was a pleasure to be around. Thanks again Shane for the amazing experience, and I hope to do it again sometime!

I wanted to thank you for the great fishing trip. Top notch equipment, electronics, and knowledge of the habitat and structure was impressive to say the least. Getting us on the fish in no time seemed to be a piece of cake. Being mostly a Crappie fisherman, I had little to no experience with Walleye fishing. I can honestly say now, spending a half day with you I am confident I can take the kids out and do more fishing than searching. Now I not only know the lake but I also know how to use my electronics for more than just finding depth and brush piles. Thanks for showing me all the great tools my Lowrance can do! I think we must have caught about 20 Walleye? I lost count because I was so excited! But the best part was the six pounder. I'm still pumped! By the way, I took my 12 year old out and used the techniques you showed me to hook him a giant too. Unfortunately my netting skills didn't get him in the boat but we did get a good look at him. I think it was bigger than the six pounder.

I will definitely be telling folks around here that if they want to learn the lake, catch some fish, learn techniques and tips and fish with a great guide and fun person, to call Hook EM!

I can't wait to go with you again. I'm thinking next time we may do some crappie exploring!

Thanks again,

I had a great time and you are an excellent guide. Thank you for showing me the lake. I did learn a lot from you and I'm looking forward to getting out there soon. We should have used my boat, though. Your setup was too cool! :-) I think I'm going to buy Buck Perry's book too. Thank you for talking about that.

Thanks again and I'll be glad to pass your name on.

The first thing that comes to mind is WOW! I have fished all over the country and have always hired a guide but never in my own back yard! I've never had much luck at El Dorado Lake so I figured what the heck, lets give it a try. Now I wish
I had done it long ago, we caught more fish and bigger fish in our day out with Shane then we did on our own in the last 20 years. Shane showed us where to fish and what to use, he showed us how to land the really big ones including this 8 lb walleye my son caught. He pointed out where the best structures were and how they got there. Incredible experience, now I know where to fish and what to use. I will use Shane over and over again. I can't wait for the spring Crappie Spawn! Shane book me again!

Shane, Thanks Again for a great time. I already have people asking me to show them where to fish out there, so I told them no problem I'd be glad to split the cost of a day trip with them with your guide service, $150.00 a person sounds good to me! I am interested in going to wolf creek with you in the future.

Thanks to you our first trip on El Dorado lake was one of memories. My oldest brother, and youngest brother and I went to the exact spot you told us to do. On Wed. we had caught a few but none big enough. On Thur. after talking to you, we caught over 15 wallies with one 22inches. We were using crawler rigs in the am. Then about 11, we switched to cranks. The oldest brother caught one 23 inches...I caught a nice crappie but no wallies big enough. We had a blast, but about killed us to release the 18-19 in wallies... Think it was over 105 degrees...and we were in about 9 to 11 feet of water... put up the canopy on the boat and lasted until 4 pm. Your advice was right on, and if I know anyone needing a guide I will recommend you. Would love to fish that lake when crappie are going in the spring... Have you ever heard of the white bass run on the Delaware River in the spring...great fun... I will be checking your blog...hope your trip to Glen Elder was successful... thanks so much for your help and for giving us a very positive experience on El Dorado.

I wanted to let you know that my son, Ty, and I had such a great time fishing with you. He had the biggest smile on his face every time we hooked into a big fish (me too). I will never forget that! It was nice to be guided by someone that actually knows how to fish and also interact well with kids. We really enjoyed riding on the boat and viewing the bottom of the lake w/your Lowrance system, wow! It was very nice of you to guide us and we look forward to another adventure with Hook'Em Guide Service.

I can't express enough how great our day of fishing with you was. My dad thoroughly enjoyed his day. I especially want to thank you for all of the knowledge you shared with us fishing El Dorado. You, your boat and equipment are top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any of my family and friends. Your friendly yet confident manner, your knowledge and skills as a fisherman and guide produce results that will have my father and I coming back time and time again.

Thank you,

Erik Akers
