“Our company hired Rick as a branson fishing guides for a corporate event. Rick and his staff were very easy to work with. They went the extra mile to accommodate the needs of our group. Rick provided everything we needed: transportation, fishing gear, snacks, drinks, etc. Everyone that participated on the trip had a lot of fun and they all caught fish. The guide service is competitively priced. We will use Rick and his team again if we are in the Branson area.”

“We contacted Rick on the recommendation of my partner who has hired him many times over the years as a fishing guide for his boys. We have only had the opportunity to get to Table Rock lake once and our experience was fantastic. He was very friendly, great with my two young boys-which was their first time fishing. I would recommend him highly. We definitely plan on returning in the near future.”

“I, like most people, hired Rick from something I read online. I have had good and bad experience with guide services in the past, but after my first trip with Rick, I finally enjoyed myself. Rick can fish with the best of them, and helped me take my fishing to a new level. On several of my trips I brought along a good friend of mine that has Parkinson’s. He turned me loose on the trolling motor and helped him… it’s because of his ability to realize “what’s truly important” that keeps me coming back. It’s nice to catch fish, but a trip can’t always be judged by the expectations we put on it… One of the best fishing trips we had involved the lake up so high we launched the boat from the parking lot, fished for 9 hours, and didn’t catch a fish… I don’t recall if either of us even got bit! I just wish he would get a new ring tone… But then again… unpopular guides probably don’t have to worry about their phones ringing.”

“We could not have selected a better fishing guide than Capt. Rick LaPoint for our Table Rock Lake fishing trip. My wife, 11-year old son and I had an excellent time fishing with Rick. He keep us safe on a tough weather day while still catching many nice 'keepers' of bass. I appreciated the time he took with my son and wife. I learned more than a few things with our day on the water. We will most definitely select Rick again when we return.”

“Rick is not only one of the top guides in the area, but he is a quality individual. His fishing and personal skills are unsurpassed. This is proven by the high amount of return clients that he maintains. Rick's skills are not only limited to finding and catching fish, as he is an excellent teacher who specializes in teaching children the life-long joy of fishing. I've had the pleasure of knowing and fishing with Rick for several years and I highly recommend his services.” 

Mike Mueller 

Rick is simply the best in the business, his clients are always happy with his results...he knows how to catch fish. The Razr Rods are extremely sensitive and strong. They are the best rods I have ever used.”
