“There is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.”
― Steven Wright, Comedian
I have to admit, I thought I might be standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
Here I was on a media trip to the Bass Pro Shops Legends, a PGA Tour Champions Tour event near Branson, Missouri and staying at the incredible Big Cedar Lodge for the better part of a week, and I was scared.
Scared, that I was in what I was told would be a “fun” fishing competition on a morning that I would not be playing golf.
Well, thanks to professional angler, Larry “Doc” Seger, there was no reason to be frightened while fishing on this unfamiliar lake, and thanks to “Doc” for taking me under his wing and making it an incredible experience.
“Doc” can do the same for you and your family and group.
As the owner of “Doc’s Guide Service” on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Doc say’s it’s guaranteed that you will catch fish.
“I’ve never had anyone not catch fish,” explained Seger and we navigated the waters and nooks and crannies of Table Rock Lake on this cool April morning.
As Seger states on his website, you will be in good hands.
I love this lake. I’m a touring pro and fish all over the country. I’ve been angler of the year central pro am and the premier Branson Fishing Guide. Let’s take a tour of beautiful Table Rock Lake and I’m going to show you what you’re going to be fishing, why you want to hire a fishing guide and the boat you’ll be fishing from, everything is provided. Come on and let’s go fishing.
In one day, I see Seger backs up all his claims.
Seger, a seasoned pro who has seen it all, immediately puts you are ease.
He asks you questions about your family and job and he’s happy to answer any question thrown his way.
“I like to talk, if you haven’t noticed,” interjects the soft-spoken Seger as we are casting for bass. “You spend a lot of time out on the boat and the water and you talk.”
Seger assumes the role of tour guide as the day progresses. He’s a walking encyclopedia of Table Rock Lake and the area in general. He’s the high school history that you actually like, but you are out on the open water looking for some of the biggest bass in the country.
Back to this “little” competition I was in.
It turns out it wasn’t little at all. There was a stage set up in true “Bassmasters” form, for a weigh in, TV cameras and prizes for the top catches.
Teams needed three fish for the weigh in and with Seger’s two and my nice Spotted Bass, we were in the weigh in and held the lead in the tournament for a short time.
What a day and what a great experience fishing with an experienced pro like “Doc” Seger.
You can have this same experience, with Doc at your side when you are in the Branson area or staying at Big Cedar Lodge.
Play some golf at great courses like Top of the Rock or Buffalo Ridge and then go fishing.
“Doc” will have the boat ready for you.
Per Doc’s Guide Service, here are some facts about Table Rock Lake:
Table Rock Lake is located in the beautiful Ozark Mountains near Branson Missouri.
Table Rock Lake has more than 48,000 acres of crystal clear water and over 860 miles of shore line.
Table Rock Lake was ranked by Bassmaster Magazine as one of the top 10 bass lakes in the country.

My advice is to get to Big Cedar Lodge and Table Rock Lake to meet your new best friend, “Doc” Seger.
You won’t look or feel like a idiot with Doc.
