What we provide:

At Tim Chandler’s Pro Guide Service we provide clients with high-quality gear at no additional charge. We fish out of a 2022 Phoenix Bass Boat (21.5 ft)  powered by a Mercury 250 ProXs with Humminbird Electronics and Minn Kota Ultrex. Onboard you will notice an ice chest with all the water you can drink, life vests, tackle, Diawa reels spooled with Sunline, and Diawa rods which are to be used at no additional charge to you. I don’t charge extra for lost or used lures but there will be a charge if equipment such as rods & reels are lost overboard and cannot be retrieved.

What you should remember to bring:
If you are coming from out of state please bring a rain suit because you never know about the weather here. Please get your fishing license, it's not included in the trip. I actually encourage you to bring your own fishing rods, this way you are not uncomfortable with strange equipment. However, if you cannot bring your own rods & reels, you are more than welcome to use mine. I would like my tackle to be used, this cuts down on clutter in the boat and again there is no additional charge for lures. If you have any special beverages you prefer to drink, please bring them with you. Bring your lunch if you would like to eat something while on the boat. Lunch can be obtained while we are on the water at local establishments but it will cut into your fishing time.  If you have any special needs, please advise in advance before the trip. And most importantly bring a sense of humor, because I like to cut up and have a good time!

Tobacco, alcohol and drug use:” Although I DO NOT personally use tobacco, we are tobacco-friendly on the boat. If you would like to bring alcohol on your trip, it must be approved by us at the time of booking or two days prior to the scheduled trip.
NO EXCEPTIONS! No illegal drugs allowed onboard.

Can we keep bass? Tim Chandler’s Pro Guide Service is a guide service and not a charter trip. We only use artificial baits for all bass trips. Every effort is made to release every bass caught in good shape to fight again another day. If you catch a bass that you would like to trophy mount, we will take all the necessary measurements for you to have a replica mount made. 

Lodging Discount: My clients will receive a discount at Fishermans Village, Waterfront Bay, The Lakeside Loft, Guntersville Lake Cabin Rentals,  by mentioning that they are fishing with me when booking your cabin reservations.

“We just wanted to say Thanks to Tim for taking us out Monday before the storm and then again Tuesday. We had a blast. He works hard to find the fish for his clients to catch and has the MOST experience on the lake than anyone I've talked to. The first fish of the day was a 7 & 1/2 pounder. We are from Augusta, GA and drove almost 6 hours to fish with Tim and it was definitely worth it!! We caught some good fish out on the ledges and a few fish over 6 pounds. Thanks again Tim for a great time on Lake Guntersville. We will definitely see you again soon!
Nick & Maggie - Augusta, GA  
“Thanks for a great trip on Guntersville! We have fished probably sixty guided bass trips on Lake Mead, Table Rock, Florida lakes, Toledo Bend, and Lake Fork and our four days with you were amazing. It was fun to catch the number of bass we landed a day, which probably averaged over 50, but to have the number of quality fish from 4 to 7 lbs. was great, and to top that off catching an 8 lb.13 oz.!!! We will definitely be back for more!!!”
Ronnie and Liz Milton - Livingston, LA
“I just wanted to say thanks to Tim for one of the best days I've ever had on the water. The conditions were rough with the high winds but he was still able to put us on the fish in a big way! But besides the actual fishing I really enjoyed asking questions about the lake, lures and techniques. He answered every question, and there were a lot of them, with exceptional detail making sureI understood exactly what he was explaining. It's information that will last for many fishing seasons to come and that's why I told him it was the best money I'd ever spent. I booked other trips before we even got back to the dock and plan on making it an annual part of my fishing.”
Wes Jolly - Warrior, AL
“Wow what a day!!!! If anyone is wanting to learn jig fishing on Guntersville go with Tim Chandler. He put us on the fish and made catching big fish easy. We caught around 25 fish and the biggest 6+ with 10 over 4lbs. Thanks Tim for a wonderful trip. ”

“My daughter Vee had the time of her life and some memories that are priceless. She couldn't stop telling her friends about Mr. Tim and his big red boat. The attention you paid to my daughter and care you demonstrated when coaching her or even engaging her in conversation was most appreciated by her Dad. Dad to Dad...thank you from the bottom of my heart for some awesome photos and memories that I have with my Daughter. We were lucky to boat 13 fish, but just the time together with my daughter would have been worth the cost of the trip. Any Dad (or Mom) wanting to take their child on a trip they will not soon forget should contact you. It is easy to see why you are so busy. I am looking forward to wetting a hook again with you soon.”
John Steger - Huntsville, AL
