GO ON A CATFISH PURSUIT WITH CHRIS JONES
I have over 25 years of experience catching trophy blue, flathead, and channel catfish, and would love
to share my experience with you. I have personally caught blue catfish as large as 93 pounds, flathead catfish as large as 68 pounds, and regularly catch fish over 30 pounds. I really love watching guests do battle with trophy catfish on rod and reel and hope you will come join me soon and experience how fun catfishing can be. I use high quality rods and reels, with heavy duty tackle that can handle any monster catfish that you get to do battle with. I guide out of a 24 foot SeaArk Pro Cat 240 boat that is safe in all types of water and weather conditions and is powered by a 300 horsepower Suzuki four stroke outboard
for quiet, reliable, service. The boat is equipped with the latest and best Lowrance HDS-12 Generation
3 ... Sonar/GPS Unit, with structure scan, to help locate trophy catfish, and I also have Sirius XM Satellite Radio onboard to cover any kind of music you like to listen to while fishing.

In the rare event that a trip does not produce fish, I will discount your next trip @ 25% off. I unfortunately I can't guarantee that fish will bite but I can guarantee that you will have a great time with lots of smiles and memories that will last a lifetime. But I do have a high success rate of producing trophy catfish.
Small pets are allowed on guide trips if arrangements are made and agreed to in advance.
All blue catfish over 10 pounds will be released after being weighed and photographed. This rule does not apply to flathead or channel catfish. I follow this guideline to protect both the fishery, and to preserve the genetics of trophy fish for our next generation of fishermen. Lake of the Ozarks and Truman Lake have a 26 to 34 inch protected slot limit for blue catfish therefore all fish over 26 inches (roughly 6-7 pounds) wil be released to fight another day
I will clean your fish for an additional $25 (up to 10 fish) ... or for one hour less of fishing time, catfish only. Please bring zip lock bags for fish fillets.
I can provide a cooler with ice for food and drinks, but you must provide your own food and drinks.
I will fish all weather conditions except during lightning.
You must have your own Missouri or Kansas fishing license prior to fishing.
Children are welcome ... but it's your responsibility to provide a safe and comfortable life jacket for them.
A $100 deposit required for all fishing trips, which becomes non-refundable at 5 days prior to your fishing date,
