Lake Fork Guide Lance Vick's
Satisfied Customer Comments

˙ ˙Lance,
I wanted to express our appreciation to you for the fishing trip on Wednesday, June 9, 2004. Hunter (or Catfish Hunter) and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the fellowship. As you learned, my 15 year old nephew is a huge catfish fisherman and after his experience bass fishing he might be making a change. It's amazing how much Hunter learned from you and he talked about it on the way home to Greenville. I hope you learned some techniques he shared with you concerning catching catfish. I would have to say Hunter has some interesting techniques. Hunter has a better understanding of the management program Lake Fork has in place, and he can appreciate it more having caught some big bass. You have broaden his skills on the different baits and techniques to use to produce a catch.

We realize the fishing conditions was not ideal, but your experience, knowledge and determination to satisfy us enable us to have a great time and achieve outstanding results. Too many times I've been with a guide and they would give-up or make-up an excuse to quit because the conditions were not favorable. On Wednesday, that was the only day I had to spend with "Catfish Hunter" and we had great time. He's still talking about that double-burger he had for lunch. It's times like this that Hunter and I will always remember. The 10 hour trip seemed like a few hours. Thanks for all the tips and patience.
I found out that if I'm going to keep-up with Hunter, I'll need to practice a little on my casting.
Finally, I now have that trophy picture to put in my game room.
Have a great day and god bless you and your family.

Hunter's Final Results of Bass Caught
Lance won catching 16 and the biggest bass
Catfish Hunter finished a close 2nd catching 14 bass
Bobby finished last with 9 bass including a 6.5 pounder (a personal record)

.............. DEAR LANCE,

I JUST WANT TO TAKE TIME OUT TO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OUR FISHING TRIP WITH YOU ON BEAUTIFUL LAKE FORK. WE WERE SO IMPRESSED WITH OUR ENTIRE TRIP THAT I HAD TO LET YOUR OTHER CUSTOMERS KNOW HOW MUCH WE ENJOYED OURSELVES.˙
AS YOU KNOW WE STAYED AT THE LAKE FORK MARINA WHICH PROVIDED US WITH EVERYTHING WE NEEDED, WITHOUT EVER LEAVING THE GROUNDS. WE CAME A DAY BEFORE OUR SCHEDULED FISHING TRIP TO CHECK THINGS OUT AND WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. THE FOOD AT THE RESTAURANT WAS FIRST CLASS, INCLUDING ANYTHING YOU WOULD WANT TO EAT, WITH HOMEMADE PIES FOR DESSERT. THE GROUNDS OF THE MARINA WERE BEAUTIFUL, WITH CAMPING AND LODGING AREAS AND LOTS OF BOAT LAUNCHING SPACE. THE STORE AT THE MARINA WAS FASCINATING. IT INCLUDED A WIDE VARIETY OF ANY FISHING TACKLE YOU WOULD EVER NEED FOR YOUR TRIP ON LAKE FORK. I ALSO WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE FISH TANK WHICH CONTAINED THE LARGEST BASS IN CAPTIVITY CAUGHT AT LAKE FORK, WHICH NOW WEIGHS 18.6 LBS. THAT WAS A REAL HOG THAT I ENJOYED SEEING SWIM AROUND THAT TANK WITH BAIT FISH. I ALSO WAS ABLE TO VIEW A BEAUTIFUL REPLICA OF THE TEXAS STATE RECORD BASS CAUGHT AT LAKE FORK 18.18 LBS. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS FISH TO BELIEVE IT, WHAT A MONSTER.
ONCE WE GOT ON THE WATER WITH LANCE WE WERE TAUGHT TECHIGNIQUE AND WHERE TO CAST OUR BAITS. LANCE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND PATIENT WITH US AT ALL TIMES. THE FISHING DURING THE HOT DAY WAS SLOW BUT OUR COMPLETE TRIP CONSISTED OF 19 FISH WEIGHING BETWEEN 7 LBS. AND 4 LBS.
THIS WAS MY FIRST TRIP WITH LANCE AND MY FIRST TIME EVER TO BE ON LAKE FORK. I DEFINITELY PLAN TO RETURN VERY SOON TO FISH WITH LANCE AND MAYBE CATCH A HOG.
THANK YOU LANCE FOR A WONDERFUL DAY OF FISHING AND BEING THE PROFESSIONAL THAT YOU ARE. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY.

YOUR FISHING PARTNER,
HAROLD JARVIS

Dear Lance,
I would like to take this time once again to thank you for an outstanding time we had fishing with you again. This time it was incredible, which is an under statement. You have creatively proved that no matter what the circumstance of Bass behavior, you still managed to get bit and get them in the boat.

You also shared with us your knowledge of Lake Fork and the techniques it takes to fish it. Let it be difinitly known that heavy gear is required to be successful on this lake as well as the confidence, perseverance and ability.

Further Lance, with all your experience that you have acquired over the years that I have known you, you certainly deserve to be a Bassmasters Pro and I know that in the very near future you will be. It's an honor for both David and me to know we fished with a Pro and will again.

Last, learning to pitch and flip was even more a thrill as well as seeing my partner learning from an experienced individual as you. But most of all Lance, I never really understood that well about catch and release, for some people believe that what they catch they keep, which is, in some cases a part of fish management, but the self satisfaction I got with such a great creature, that gave us the thrill of battle to stay free, stayed free, that I am proud of.

To all those who have never fished Lake Fork and plan to, get ready for the most invigorating experience in bass fishing that you will ever come to know. For Lake Fork and Lance Vick will see to that.

Thank You Lance Vick and Thank You! Lake Fork Bass

Bass Wishes,
Michael Gappa
David Yevchek

Dear Lance:


We can't believe it has been three years since we started

fishing with you at Lake Fork.

When we first booked a trip with you three springs ago, we were both just beginning to get serious about bass fishing. And now, a few years later, after having spent a lot of time on the water, and a lot of time learning about fishing from you, we are now both much better fishermen. We both know that the fishing conditions on Lake Fork change all the time, and we know how beneficial it is to have a guide like you who stays on top of the fish and the patterns. We have always caught more fish, and bigger fish, with you than we ever have on our own at Lake Fork. In fact, some of the biggest fish each of us has ever caught have been on trips with you. And even on a few of our trips out when the fishing was tough, we have always had a lot of fun spending the day with you, whether we caught a lot of fish or not. Whenever anyone mentions going to Lake Fork to us, we are always quick to recommend you as a guide.

We know that there are hundreds of guides we could hire at Lake Fork, but we are so glad that we found you.
We really appreciate everything you have taught us about fishing and about Lake Fork, and your sincere kindness and friendship as well. We are both look forward to fishing with you later this month, and another great fishing trip to Lake Fork.

Sincerely,


STEVE & JULIE BOON

Dear Lance,
˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙˙
I wanted to send this letter thanking you for a super year of fishing last year. All of my
clients that you took fishing really enjoyed themselves. Each and every one of them still
talks about the trips and want to go back. I thank you for taking the time to detail how
and why we used and why we fish the spots we fished. I feel anybody can carry a person
fishing but it takes a professional guide just like you to make a trip really special. I was
just thinking about the trips we fished the humps and caught bass after bass. I appreciated
the times you taught me how to pitch a jig correctly. I really enjoyed catching the "PIGS"
as you called them. I have recommended your service to many of my friends and
co-workers. I look forward to another great year this year on beautiful Lake Fork.

I guess I am what we salesmen call a satisfied customer.

Thanks Again!

Your friend,

Dale Fuller
Regional Manager

Thanks you so much for the expertise you exhibited on our recent guided bass fishing outing on Lake Fork.

I believe Texas Data Print is a professionally managed company. I can only hope our managers perform with the same degree of professionalism you showed. It was a thing of rare beauty.
