Branson Missouri fishing guide service. Table Rock Lake expert. Families welcome larger Ranger boat. Hi, my name is Rick LaPoint. I am a U.S. Coast Guard licensed, fully insured, professional guide for the last 19 years. I guide on Table Rock, Taneycomo and Bull Shoals Lakes I have over 35 years of bass tournament experience, with many wins. I specialize in instructional fishing techniques and deep water tactics for bass. I also love to take kids out fishing and will provide all that is needed for an enjoyable trip on the water.
