As a USCG-licensed fishing guide, Captain Cody offers a wealth of knowledge, personality and expertise to every trip, ensuring that you catch fish while creating unforgettable memories on the water.


Captain Cody specializes in Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo charters, catering to anglers of all skill levels. Whether a beginner is looking to learn the basics or an experienced fisher seasoned pro seeking a fresh experience, Cody has you covered. With his commercial insurance and U.S. Coast Guard license, you know that you’re in safe and capable hands.


Initially a construction worker from California, Cody followed his passion for fishing and turned it into a full-time career. His dedication to his craft is evident in his impressive professional bass fishing career accomplishments, including notable finishes in the Major League Fishing Pro Circuit and Bass Pro Shops Tournament Trail.


But Captain Cody’s expertise extends beyond competitive fishing. With his in-depth knowledge of the local waters and years of experience, he knows exactly where to find Lake Taneycomo’s Brown and Rainbow Trout and Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, crappie and more in the 43,000-plus acres of Table Rock Lake.


Customer satisfaction is Captain Cody’s top priority, as evidenced by glowing reviews from delighted anglers. One satisfied customer raved, “Had an amazing time fishing! Cody does an amazing job guiding and putting you on fish.” Another praised Captain Cody’s skills and personality: “Cody knows this lake well and is an awesome guy on top of it.” When asked what he liked most about guiding, Cody said, “Seeing people’s faces light up when their rod doubles over when they hook a fish.”


His 21-foot 2020 Skeeter FXR boat powered by a 250 HP Yamaha is the ideal platform to get you to where the fish are. The boat is equipped with the most advanced electronics to help find fish so that you have the confidence you are fishing where the fish are. A 15-inch Humminbird SOLIX is on the console for side and down images, and two Humminbird HELIX units are up front. One is used for mapping, while the other operates as the forward-facing sonar unit with the Humminbird Mega Live. Cody said, “That’s the one we use to key in and find ‘trout’ [or bass] so we can make precise casts at them.


With his fully equipped boat, friendly demeanor and the guarantee that you will catch fish, Captain Cody ensures that every moment on the water is enjoyable and rewarding. This “fishing machine” is fully outfitted with rods, reels, tackle and lures. Before setting out, Captain Cody ensures that all necessary permits and licenses are obtained and provides valuable advice on fishing regulations and techniques. Safety is paramount, with child-sized life vests provided and snacks available to keep everyone energized throughout the day.


Typically, each trip is for either a trout fishing trip on Lake Taneycomo or bass or crappie fishing on Table Rock Lake. You can make custom trips by arranging them in advance with Cody. They could include fishing at Table Rock Lake for bass or crappie in the morning and trout on Lake Taneycomo in the afternoon. During the spring and early summer months, Cody offers the opportunity to fish for both bass and trout in Lake Taneycomo.


Cody’s favorite fishing method when there is running water on Lake Taneycomo is “snapping a 1/8-ounce Black Jig along the bottom.” He said it’s hard to beat the float and Berkley Power Bait pink worm when there is no running water generating power at Table Rock Dam.
