    Jake was an amazing guide! Our family had a wonderful time. He made sure we were on fish and helped with everything including cleaning and bagging filets! Jake was so much fun, engaging, and had a great playlist! The day was perfect! We will for sure be back again.

    If you don’t use Jake you have made a mistake. I have never reviewed anything, anyone, or any business but we fished with Jake April 5,2024 in the morning. I have been on several guided trout fishing trips and use a guide on the Lower Mountain Fork occasionally because he works to put me on fish. If I ever want to fish Texoma for anything I’m calling Jake! He worked to put us on fish and kept us on fish. With 6 people on the boat he kept hooks baited, untangled lines, unhooked fish, gave instruction and kept an awesome attitude. At the first location within minutes of us getting bait in the water we were bringing up fish so fast he couldn’t get them in the cooler or live well. He made that trip something I’ll always remember and it has given me a bug to do it again. Thank you Jake I hope I can come back.

    Fantastic. Jake was great. He got us on fish and we caught some good ones. He was friendly and made sure we knew exactly how to work the bait and snag ‘em. We are definitely going to book more trips with Jake. Recommend 10/10. If you are searching for a guide, stop and book with Jake.

    Jake took us out on Grapevine lake for some Crappie fishing. He is a very knowledgeable guide and will teach you how to fish using some amazing equipment that I had never seen before. We actually had some trouble with a bad batch of minnows, but Jake didn't let that phase him, and he worked as hard as he could to ensure that we had a good time. He even kept us out on the lake a little longer to increase our catch as much as he could. In the end, we kept about 25 crappie and 4 perch. Overall, I would highly recommend Jake as a fishing guide. His knowledge and equipment is top notch, his price is very competitive to other guides, and he'll do his best to ensure you and your group will have a fun and informative fishing experience.

    Jake is awesome!! Highly recommend using Barefoot Guide Service. My parents flew in from ATL for this trip. The weather was looking sus. Jake had backup ideas, but went above and beyond and even woke up at 2:30 to monitor weather to make sure we could get this trip in. Despite weather scares, Jake put us on fish and provided a GREAT experience. Filleted our fish and provided a killer recipe! Really friendly and fun guy to hang with for the day. Will definitely use Barefoot for my next fishing trip!
