J&R Guide Service Inc. is the only FULL TIME and FULL SERVICE GUIDE on Patoka and Monroe Lake. This means 12 months per year , 24 hrs. per day . Our boats will have water and sodas onboard along with snacks and sandwiches on full day charters.

I have fished Patoka and Monroe all of my life . I started J & R Guide Service Inc. because I love to fish and meet new fishermen . It also provides a little extra money to support my fishing hobbie . It is not my livlyhood so when you call me for a fishing report , you can expect an honest and true report . If you book on a bad time , a call the day before can reschedule your trip to a more productive day . I know what is biting and when and I will tell you for sure , you can count on it . I want to be on the water when you can catch fish as bad as you do .

Please bring a cooler to transport your catch home . I have access to trophy Whitetail Deer, Turkey, and Cottontail Rabbit hunting on State and private land. You may choose a half day fishing and a half day hunting charter on the same day.

J & R will be guiding on both Patoka Lake and Monroe Reservoiri . I have been told that J & R puts on the best fish fry in Indiana. Book a fish fry for your private group today and you be the judge . Prices available upon request.

I now have a fishing pontoon that can take your family or group of up to 6 people on fishing charters or just take lake tours etc.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
