Reelin Ray Roberts Guide Service


Thank you for taking my dad, brother and me fishing today. You gave us a day we will be talking about for years to come - it was way beyond anything we could have imagined. We went straight home and had a fish fry and have more for an even bigger fish fry when more of our family can get together. We cannot thank you enough or recommend you more highly to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, accommodating and classy fishing guide for an awesome day on Lake Ray Roberts.
> Thank you for a day we will never forget!

It was absolutely amazing Master-Class fishing trip with Tim.
After months of trying fishing by myself with no success, I finally was able to learn how to fish at Lake Roberts. 
Thank you , Tim!

Highly recommended fishing guide!


Great fishing day yesterday with a new angling friend, Igor.  Guide, Tim Wike knows Lake Ray Roberts like the back of his hand. He taught us the technique and we started catching fish.  The bite was a little skittish cause fish are like that, but Tim knew where to go.  We went spot to spot and got our limit.  Tim Wike has my highest recommendation!

Thanks, Tim.

This is my third time to fish with you, but this trip was the best since it was with my wife and our 13 year-old son.  As always, you made the trip so much fun.  You are tremendously accommodating and responsive to requests which you temper with your knowledge, expertise and experience.  As we waited on Mother Nature, you recommended a postponement knowing we wouldn't get the best experience.  You put your guests first, and this is why your business continues to grow.  Our fish fry is this afternoon, and I can almost taste those perfectly breaded Sand Bass (and my surprise blue catfish!) Thank you, again, for taking care of my family.  Thank you, also, for the foam cooler.  I'm embarrassed that I didn't read your website earlier and follow those simple directions you provided!! We'll be back.

May God richly bless you and your family.

We had a great time yesterday and really enjoyed the fishing.  You are a master guide, have a great boat, and all the necessary equipment for a successful trip.  Nice job on cleaning the catch and I will recommend you to others who want to go fishing on Ray Roberts Lake.  Incidentally, Jeff prepared his fish last night and said the fish were still fresh as can be and tasted wonderful.  Again, thanks for your expert service.

Thank you for an amazing day of fishing! You took four novice fisherman and made us look like pros! I've never caught so much fish in my life!  Thank you for taking care of every detail and allowing us to catch fish after fish.  I could not have asked for a better way to spend the day with my son, my dad, and my father-in-law, This day will be remembered for a long time, and we will definitely be planning another trip soon.





Tim, Thank you for an awesome time today. Aiden and Ariana had a great time as did I ( Ricky) & Daniel. It was my first fishing trip with a guide and better than I expected as we celebrated my son Aidens 9th birthday weekend.
I have already told several people how great you are at your job and the service you provided was top notch! We are already planning our next fishing trip and rest assure we will be contacting you as our guide. Keep up the
good work and God Bless......

Just want to thank you for a great fishing trip. Start to finish was 1st class. You put us on fish and your instructional advice was super. We hope to do this again sometime in the future. I would reccomend to anyone looking for a guided fishing trip, they would not go wrong going with you.
Thanks again for a great trip,
Larry and Jacque

Great Guide, Great Fishing!!

     The Man.  It’s hard to pretend you enjoy an activity when you don’t!  Tim Wike loves fishing, and it shows!  He is enthusiastic and energetic in his approach, and his interest in fishing is contagious.  All through the day, he worked hard to keep us in the fish.
     The Teacher.  What I appreciate most is that he is an excellent teacher.  I have fished for schooling sand bass for many years, but I knew very little about finding the fish in deep, open water (30 feet plus).  With clarity and considerable patience, Tim taught Ben, Gary, and me to jig using the heavy spoons he provides.
He worked with us until we began to use the best technique.  We caught three limits of fish with time left over to catch-and- release many more.   
     I have Lowrance fish finders on my old boat, but Tim knows how to read his electronics!  He knows how to differentiate between fish that are suspended and inactive and ones that are more likely to be biting.  That helps!  We got good instruction on using the fish finders.
     The Boat.  I expected Tim to have a bass boat, but his Ranger Reata is so much better than a traditional bass rig.  The boat has plenty of room and very comfortable seats. It provides a very comfortable, safe ride across the lake. 
     If you have never seen a GPS- linked trolling motor with a wireless remote control, then you are in for a pleasant surprise.  Tim has GPS coordinates for all of the fishing spots that he frequents on Lake Ray Roberts.  There is no guessing.  He goes to the chosen location using his GPS.  When he and his clients start fishing, the trolling motor holds the boat in position.  Tim is free to help with fishing and handling the catch.
     What a great day on the water!  I highly recommend Tim, and we look forward to going with him again!

This is Ricky, my sons and I had a trip with you Saturday and I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was. You have a wealth of knowledge about the lake and you have no problem sharing your knowledge with your customers. I have been with a lot of guides and you were one of the few that made us feel welcomed to be in your boat it was not about the money you made it feel it was about the trip and catching fish. Tim we had a good fishing day even if you tried to get us to cancel as the fish were just not biting something a lot of guides would not do as they wanted the money. In closing I would like to say again what a pleasure it was for you to let us share your time and boat sure makes a person feel good to know that there are still honest people out there that enjoy their job and people. Thank you again for the memories I had with you and my sons………..Ricky

I can't say enough about what a great job you do. It was a great trip. The fishing was great but your interaction with my grandkids is priceless. It was like fishing with a family member not just a guide. I can't wait until our next trip when I bring the next one with us. We all couldn't stop talking about how much fun we had and Jonas was so proud of his fish, it was an experience none of us will forget. Thanks for being such a great guide but more importantly such a great person.

I can't thank you enough for the amazing time Andrew, Stephanie and I had on April 22nd. I've fished all my life and sand bass are one of my favorites to catch and after our fishing trip and many fish fries I can definitely say it was one of the best fishing trips I've ever had. Andrew had never been on a boat up until that day and believe it or not Stephanie had never caught a fish up until then. My mind went back in time to all the grand parents and great grand parents that taught me to fish and are gone now and how they would of love to seen all of us reelin those fish in. I must say some good memories were made that day and we will absolutely be back for another fishin trip.

Thank You so much for all your hard work to make it a special day!

Tim, thanks so much again for everything! My parents, son and I had such an amazing and memorable time on the water. I still can't believe we caught 77 keepers in just 2 1/2 hours. (of course we would have easily caught more had the 5 year old not have had enough, but, the fact that the 5 year old had such a great time and didn't complain once in 2 1/2 hours is also a testament to how much fun we were ALL having reelin' in those fish:) The fish fry last night was great, and we still have plenty left over to invite half of our neighborhood:) We will definitely be booking another trip in the fall and will recommend you to anyone that wants to take a fun family fishing trip

Thanks again,

Carol Hill


Tim Wike is the man! I have fished most of my life, but I've never caught fish the way I did with Tim. My buddy and I caught so many fish it was unbelievable. Definitely the most fun fishing I have had in a very long time! Even after we limited out, Tim let us keep on fishing til our half day was up. He taught us everything we wanted to know and more about the lake, sandbass fishing, where and how to catch them. It was fantastic. Super nice guy, very knowledgable, did absolutely all the work and my buddy and I just had all the fun. I couldn't recommend Tim more as a guide. We will definitely be back!

Thanks Tim!!

Scott Garrett



Thanks for a fantastic trip.  It was clearly the best day of fishing my family has ever had.  There were four of us fishing and at times all four of us were pulling in fish at the same time, plus often with “doubles”.  I am so impressed with your knowledge of the lake and the fact that you go out of your way to teach us how to catch fish on our own in the future.  This was the second time I’ve been out with you and I know I will be back again. 

Thanks again,

Greg Whaley


Thank you so much for a great day of fishing.  My boys and I had one of the best days fishing together that we have ever had.  We all agreed, you are the best guide with the best service we have ever used, and we have used quite a few.

And yes, the fish fry was wonderful.

Thank you again.

Greg Harper





We truly enjoyed your service. Great catch, great de-hooking, and great cleaning.  All along with some fine company and good conversation. What else can one say? You do a great job and we’ll definitely return. Nancy (wife) is ready to go and I have some friends who will likely want to use you. Got em’ all bagged and frozen.

Tell me again what you use for a batter?

Thanks again for a wonderful day.

Thank you so much for you kindness, patience, and expertise.  My entire family wholly enjoyed our trip today.  You got us into fish and kept us catching fish most of the morning, even in less that desirable conditions.  I plan to use your service from here on out.  Also, your tips on frying the fish were spot on.  I fried some of the batch for my folks and just like you said..."I really like this fish because it tastes like fish without tasting fishy".  Most of all, you make novices like myself feel comfortable making mistakes and asking questions.  Sincere thanks and gratitude from the Ranas.

Brandon Rana

Thanks Tim,

we had a great time.  On the way home we couldn’t stop talking about how many fish we caught.

By far our best fishing trip.

Thanks Again

Hey Tim,

Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed the trip today. To go out with the heat this time of year and catch what we did was great. Your knowledge of how to catch Sandies and that of Lake Ray Roberts was amazing. I also appreciated the time you took with my son helping him out as well as being a very gracious host. I will definitely tell all my friends and will be back myself.

Thanks Again,

Thank you again for doing such a great job on Monday.  I am so glad I found you on the internet when I was looking for lake reports for ray roberts in google.  The weather was fantastic and you took full advantage of the great conditions by limiting out me and the kids on sandies in less than three hours.  The kids had a great time and this will not be quickly forgotten.  The oldest boy has already asked if we can go with 'reelin ray roberts' tomorrow.  Too bad we can't go that soon again.

Best wishes to you and may God bless you!

Warm regards,


Hey Tim,

Wanted to let you know that you were everything you promised in your website and more!  Robert and I had a most excellent trip with you fishing on Lake Ray Roberts!  You are a awesome guide and with us catching around 250 fish in our one day fishing trip it was totally GREAT!  The technique you employ for Sandies and your knowledge of what, where and how to catch them is amazing!  We absolutley enjoyed our time on the water with you.  Anyone that asks about fishing in Texas will get your name from me........Thank you so much!

Good morning Tim, 

I just wanted to thank you for the time and effort you put into our fishing trip. Ryan and I had a blast, fishing could always be worse. However, having a guide like yourself makes the day go by fast and not only did you put us on fish but we both gained good knowledge of how to fish for Sandies. 

Thank again Tim!!! 
David & Ryan Hildreth


I wanted to thank you for the great trip we had Friday.  Phillip and I were more than satisfied with a successful fishing morning netting our limit of sand bass and some bonus crappies. Your knowlege of the lake and techniques for catching are second to none. As other boats ran about the lake in pursuit of fish, we methodically accumulated our fish at Tim's known locations. It was impressive and enjoyable. I highly recommend Tim as an honest, hard working guide who will do what it takes to get the fish.

Thanks again Tim.

Thanks Tim for a great day fishing.
You are the most knowledgeable, organized & helpful fishing guide I ever had the pleasure to fish with. Also, thanks for the pictures.

I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all of the information you gave us about Ray Roberts. I feel like I know the lake much better now. We have been out every weekend since we were out with you and our luck has totally turned around. Last weekend, around Isle du Bois I caught about a dozen bass ranging between 1 and 4lbs. Today, was even better. I caught 18 keepers around the Isle du Bois area, then we jumped across the lake to that submerged road bed near the Johnson Branch Unit that you showed us. There I snagged an 8 lbs hog!! By far the biggest I've caught on this lake. 

I think Ray Roberts has replaced Lake Fork as my favorite Texas Lake. So thank you for sharing with us your experience and even some of your secrets.

Matt Monroe

Those are some great looking bass. Tim just a line to say thanks again for the great day on the water with you, my son and grandson. My grandson is still talking about it and Tim that is the first time I have ever seen him get worn out fishing. He and I have been fishing together since he was 3 or 4 and he caught so many fish that day with you he had to lay his pole down. He was still worn out at supper time. The three of us will always remember that day together with you. River is just getting right and the walleyes are just getting a good start here, so see you on the water.

Thank you for a great day,

I wanted to let you know that I ENJOYED the trip I took with you on Wed. 12/13/06. You provided everything you said you would on your web-site. We caught LOTS of fish (286) and I also learned alot about fishing for Sandies. I appreciated your suggestions on changing equipment and setup to increase my catches. I look forward to going with you again not only for Sandies but also for some Largmouth in the Spring. If anyone asks me for a guide on Ray Roberts I'll be passing your name on to them.

Thanks again for a great time on Sunday. I know you sent the pictures to Steve if you would send them to me as well I would appreciate it. The dinner Sunday was great.  We breaded and baked the fish.  M-M-M Good!!
