    Default Todd Huckabee Guide

    Geez, My buddy and I were humbled again. Went out with Todd on upper Ft. Gibson yesterday. My buddy caught a couple of 10 inchers...I got 3 a little bigger...Todd keeps reeling in the slabs one after another. I believe some guys just have IT...whatever IT is. You know when you're fishing side by side with somebody that there is just something that the gifted fishermen feel on their line. Some guys just have the touch, or 6th sense, or whatever you want to call it. Nevertheless, we got schooled. If you want to watch a Master, book a trip with him. I guarantee you will have a good time.

    Hope you didn't pay for catching 13 fish while he fills the boat. He's not much of a guide if you ask me to do that to his clients that way. He may be a good fisherman but guide? Not in my book.

    I didn't look at it that way at all, tenncrappie. I've been out with him several times and he's always been great...asked me if I wanted him to fish or not on this last trip. I spent more time watching him and his rod tip than I did my own just trying to figure out the bite. Guess you just would have to have been there. I'm happy...each to his own.

    I personally know three people who have used him and not one of them spoke highly of his guide service!

    If I'm paying for a guide, it's not because I want to watch him fish.
    I cheated in a crappie tournament and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.

    HMMM if you were fishing right beside him and he was doing his best to make sure you had the same bait he was fishing the same depth and letting you dip where he was dipping. I guess the only other thing he could do for you would be set the hook for you and hand you the rod...Just saying.

    He was doing something different than you...and I believe you paid enough for him to let you in on his secret.I would guess depth was the difference,but you hired him to take you fishing which should include a lesson if it's needed.

    Exactly...we got a thorough explanation of what we were doing and why. It was a weird bite...He's just been at it so long he has an incredible feel for the fish. We missed a lot of them that he probably would have hooked. It's why he's a pro and we're amateurs.

    He was not doing anything differently than we were. We were standing 2 ft. apart, same lures, same depth, everything the same, while he showed us what he was looking at on the graph. What else can be done? Some people can feel a bite, some have a harder time at it. What's the difference between that and some people being able to see a buck in the woods while the guy standing beside him can't see that same buck?
