Being a Striper Fishing Guide on Beaver Lake I know that Live shad is the top producer when you are Striper Fishing Beaver Lake Arkansas, so I provide the freshest, best baits I can find. Gizzard shad that are 10-14 inches in length will produce the best when you take a striper guide trip on Beaver Lake Arkansas. However there are times when on a Beaver Lake Striper Guide trip that striper can scatter and it can be tough to present live bait when you really need to cover water and this case we use artificial in conjunction with down-riggers and other advanced techniques to present lures on youre guided striper trip according to what the conditions warrant and the striper key on. And all striper fishing anglers even the die hard live bait fisherman know that when Beaver Lake Striper are on a top water bite nothing produces fish like the right artificial. As a Guide I make some lures that are not available on the commercial market which in certain situations can be the hottest thing going. I provide them only to my anglers on my striper guided trips in order to keep the “secret lure” secret.

About the Capitan

Mike Bailey

Hi, I am Mike Bailey and I own and operate Bailey’s Beaver Lake Striper Fishing Guide Service. We specialize in Trophy Striped Bass on Beaver Lake in Northwest Arkansas. I am proud to be a full-time Beaver Lake Striper fishing guide. I have been fishing Striped Bass in Beaver Lake for over 40 years. Being a professional Striped Bass guide over the years has provided me with unique insight to our striped bass fishery. It is my mission to provide my customers with the best experience they can possibly find anywhere. I specialize in providing my customers with a genuine Trophy Striped bass and happy smilin’ anglers with pictures of big Striper is my sole motivation! The average Striped Bass my anglers catch is between 16 to 20lbs but there have been times when we have caught Striper over 50lbs and with the state record only being a 64-pound Striper my goal is to make one of my anglers the next record holder with a striper over 80lbs… In my experiences I have also proudly served on the board of directors for the NWASA, or the Northwest Arkansas Striper Association. In addition, I collaborate with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission helping with studies and regulation.
