Mid-South Bass Guide's goal is to give you absolutely the best and safest bass fishing experience that we can provide. 

We supply the fishing boat, PFD's, fishing tackle, non alcoholic beverages, pictures, and all the fish, fun and information we can provide with 35 years of fishing Guntersville Lake, Tims Ford Lake, Woods Reservoir and lakes around the world.

Capt Jake Davis runs a  20'-2" Triton bass boat powered by a 2018 Mercury 225 Pro XS OptiMax with Humminbird Helix 12 Side and Down Imaging Electronics and Minn Kota Ultrex trolling motor. This boat safely carries a guide and up to three clients. We can arrange for additional boats and Trusted Guides to accommodate larger parties.

On-board you will find drinking water in the ice chest, life vests, tackle, digital camera, fishing tackle, and professional-grade fishing rods and reels for our clients' use.   

What to Bring

  • Rain gear (Guide carries a limited amount of emergency rain gear; however, we highly recommend that you bring personal rain gear that fits you properly and will keep you dry when the weather turns ugly.)
  • Sun glasses
  • Sun screen and lip balm (SPF 30 or better recommended)
  • Favorite rods and reels (We supply rods and reels; however, if you are most comfortable using your own gear, we encourage you to bring it along.)

  • Preferred non-alcoholic beverages (sugary, carbonated beverages and energy drinks are not recommended for a day in the sun.)
