Barrett BreedenBarrett Breeden is 19 years old and has been guiding atLive Oak for 2 years. Fishing is his passion and always has been. Usually a typical day starts around 6:30 in the morning, he picks the customer up at the lodge and takes them to one of the many lakes at Live Oak and they get ready to launch the boat in the water. Usually a full day trip lasts eight hours and a 1/2 day trip lasts 4 hours.This is when the fun starts coming in when they can start catching bass. 

They troll the lakes the first four hours of the morning catching, then comes one of the other perks of fishing,LUNCHTIME. They always break for lunch around 12:00-12:30 and look forward to the delicious meal that is about to be served. You name it and Live Oak has it. After lunch they head back out for another afternoon on the water.Usually on an average day, they catch from 25-75 bass in a full day, sometimes even more ranging from 3 lbs all the way up to 10-11 lbs. Some of his favorite baits to use are deep diving crank baits, Spook, Lipless crank bait andZ Pop. 

Barrett says a day of fishing at Live Oak is like no other experience. 

“It's the best all the way down from the customer to the southern hospitality,” said Barrett. “To me it's a great get away from work and slow down and just live one fish at a time. To me, it's about the customer and the excitement on their face when they catch a big one.That's what fishing is all about!”
