Ricky's Guide Service and Texas Spinnerbait Company

Ricky's Guide Service
I have served as your licensed guide on Lake Palestine for over 42 years. My promise to you is that I will do everything I can to make your trip the best ever.

How many times have you gone shopping for that perfect lure for your next trip on the water? Well I was there with you looking for a well made Spinnerbait or Jig and you could find the colors but not the quality. Well that’s where I got the idea to build my own Jigs and Spinnerbaits and I would have not only the colors and styles but also the quality that I would want because if it’s quality is not what I would want then it’s not good enough for you.

 I began building my Spinnerbaits and Jigs and I tried many styles and I tried a variety of wires for my Spinnerbaits and then after a lot of trial and error I found what is known today as the Texas Spinnerbait to be what I feel is the very best on the market today.

i have the standard Spinnerbaits and others that I build one being the Lake Fork 430 special which has been a very good Spinnerbaits for the spring spawn and also the fall months when the water began storm cool down. I also build the best night fishing Spinnerbaits to. 

Next I worked a Jig and like the Spinnerbaits I went through many head styles and as we all know head styles do matter. We need one that’s good both in grass and timber and now I have what I feel is the best Jigs going. The Big Eye Jig. Both my Spinnerbaits and Jigs come in a number of sizes.

The Companies name is the Texas Spinnerbait Company and you can find us on line just go to Rickys Guide and scroll down to where you see Texas Spinnerbaits and click on it and you will find many of my lures made today. If you can’t find the colors you want on line the call me at 903-530-2201 and if I can find the rubber in the colors you want then I’ll build it for you. The Big Eye Jig has won anglers now over $100,000.00’s so try one or more today.

Now here’s another offer for you. Call and book a trip in August and September and tell me you saw my offer and I will build you a $25.00 gift pack for free just for booking a trip with me.
