Quotes My wife took me on a crappie outing for my birthday (something I've wanted to do for a long time), and I was afraid it would be a little disappointing. Hardly! Tom made our day relaxing and fun. The wind blew over 35 mph, but we still landed 130 crappie, and kept our 50 crappie limit - yum. I can't wait to try the catfish guide with Tom. We learned a lot from Tom, and he was very patient and fun to be with. If you want a guide who works real hard, give Tom a call. Quotes
Windy success

Quotes Well, like every other charter we have ever booked, we were hoping to learn something new, catch a few fish, enjoy each others? company and hopefully meet someone who loved fishing as much as we do. The something new was trolling for catfish. The only disappointment on the whole trip was to have had to wait until I was 67 to discover that there was a new way to fish that was just fantastic !! The trip, the services of Tom Hankins, (as well as the pleasure of spending the day with him), the number of quality fish and the knowledge that he passed on, could not have been better! If you are looking for a TRIPLE A experience, this is it. I am a lure manufacturer and we have fished in many different places and for many kinds of fish with and without a guide. If we?ve been on a better trip, we honestly can?t remember when. Jim & Jim Martino. Quotes

Geist 4/16

Quotes We had a great time out Apr 10, 2011. Tom put us on some very nice size fish(14in). He also was more than helpfull in explaining how to spider rig. The bite was a little slow but the majority of the fish we caought were beter than the normal ones we normally catch at Geist. Thanks for all you hard work and help Tom. Hope to see you on the water.

Geist trip

Quotes Had a great day today with Tom. We absolutely tore the Crappie up! We had boated close to 100 by noon, and probably caught around 125 or so. Caught several doubles, and caught my first Black Nose Crappie. Action was fast and furious all day long, and I can't wait to do it again! Thanks Again! Quotes
Geist Crappie Fest

Quotes Saturday was my 1st trip with Tom and it won't be my last. My goal was to learn more about spider-rigging and about crappie in general, both were a success. Tom did a great job before,during & after the trip answering question(s) before the trip,teaching me about spider-rigging and then after the trip he was gracious enough to send me links for some of the products he used and suggested. Thanks again to Tom and give him a call, you won't be disappointed. Quotes
