Lake Mead is just a short ride from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cap'n Bob is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain, Nevada Department of Wildlife Licensed Master Guide, is licensed by the U.S. National Park Service to guide fishing trips on Lake Mead, is past President of Nevada Striper Fishing Club, and has a lifetime of fishing experience from coast to coast.

Cap'n Bob offers you an exciting alternative to Las Vegas Gambling with 1/2 day, (4 to 5 hr.) Lake Mead guided fishing trips for Stripers or Largemouth Bass on beautiful Lake Mead, just 30 minutes from the "Glitz and Glamour" of Las Vegas.


It took 4,360,000 cubic yards of concrete to fill the Black Canyon on the Colorado River between Nevada and Arizona thereby backing up 275 sq miles of water and creating 550 miles of public shoreline.
Lake Mead, the largest man made body of water in North America is home to an estimated 15 million hungry fish. It is also estimated that 10 million of these fish are Striped Bass, a hard fighting Gamefish that seems to delight in "stretching your string"!
Pound for pound Stripers are among the worlds strongest fighting fresh water fish and are catchable year 'round in Lake Mead.
You'll find Lake Mead fishing is fishing at its finest!
No "hard water" here!
Recent changes by the Department of Wildlife now allow unlimited bag limits. Take 'em home & cook 'em up! 
The alert tourist will see Desert Bighorn Sheep, Coyotes, and Wild Burros frolicking on the shores of this picturesque body of water.
Scenic desert mountains offer spectacular views.
Bring your camera!


Our boats carry all of the required safety
equipment as well as high quality rods and reels.
All we need is YOU!!!
