Justin grew up in NE Arkansas and started fishing once he started walking. His love for fishing grew more and more as he got older. After high school he moved to the Branson, MO area to further his education at the College of the Ozarks. While going to school and working a full time job, every chance he got he started to learn the lakes in the area. These lakes are very different than his home lakes he grew up fishing. From his home lakes of shallow and muddy water to these lakes being deep and clear it was a challenge. Slowly he began to master it, and prove himself that he had what it takes to guide fishing in the area.
Justin has been guiding for the last 10 years, and knows what it takes to please his clients and put them on the fish. He is an avid crappie fisherman and his techniques include Vertical Jigging, Spider Rigging, and Long Lining. If he had to choose one it would probally be Spider Rigging. He also can provide you with some excellent trout fishing as well. He targets the rainbow and browns by either drifting baits for them, or throws baits by spin fishing.
