 Iowa Catfish Guide | Chasin' Cats

catfish-guide-whisker-seeker-tackle-cattin-around-iowa-b-w-1.jpgI, Dave Wyner, will be your catfishing guide. As an avid fisherman for 30 years and a pro-staffer for Whisker Seeker Tackle, I take great pride in helping others learn how to target catfish through on-the-water experiences, teaching seminarsand online coaching. Sunshine or ice, we’ll be after them!    

Trolling and drifting for catfish is a challenge and a thrill that you truly have to experience; the cats won’t come in without a fight, and it’s the fight that sets this fishing experience apart from all others. Catching catfish is only half the fun; I’ll set you up with the tips and tricks needed to bring them in well beyond our day on the water.   

Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned catfish angler, I’ll spend the time to teach you tactics that will improve your game…those cats won’t have a chance when you’re on the water!   

Locations: I’ll select a body of water within 60 miles of Central Iowa that I know is well suited for a worthwhile experience.  These locations are known for great numbers of both medium to large size channel catfish.   

Your catfish guided experience will include: 
- Bait location and how to target 
- Trolling and controlled drifting methods and when to use each
- Ice-out/pre-spawn/summer locations and tactics 
- Basic sonar strategies and setup  
- Catfish gear selection and types of rigs to use when targeting channel catfish

Oklahoma Catfish Guide | Lance's Guide Service

catfish-guide-whisker-seeker-tackle-lances-guide-service-oklahoma-b-w-1.jpgLance Lutke, a Licensed Oklahoma Fishing Guide,  grew up in Bartlesville, OK fishing all the area lakes and rivers with family and friends.  After graduating from Oklahoma State University, he and his wife moved to Keller, TX to pursue careers in education.

While living in Texas, fishing became more than just a hobby.  After winning the first couple of tournaments he entered, a few local fishing guides encouraged him to give guiding a try.  That was ten years ago and he is hooked.  Raising two children so far away from family, God placed it on their hearts to move back home to Oklahoma.

Lance is now a fishing guide on NE Oklahoma area lakes: Oologah, Fort Gibson, Grand, Keystone, Kaw and Skiatook lakes.  His trips include fishing for catfish, white bass, crappie, hybrid/stripers, and spoonbill paddlefish.  Be sure to check Lance’s Guide Service out on Facebook and also on Instagram – lance_guide_service or visit his website at  You can also call/text 918-607-7357 or email
