Father's Day fishing fun. Thanks Kay and Stanley for making our day wonderful.

Glenn Hancock

Had a great time with my 2 oldest sons. Stanley and his wife Kay were the greatest. I've been on several hunting and fishing trips with guides but Stanley and Kay are the best ever.

Ben Burns

Chicken and Dumplings afterwards were great! Looking forward to some pan seared crappie.

Zack Burns

My boys had an awesome fishing experience with an outstanding fishing guide. They love Stanley! They can't wait for the next trip.

Amanda Beard

Stan, thanks for the awesome day of fishing on Lake Nacogdoches. I’ve been on several guided fishing trips and none of them even come close to comparing with Stan. He truly loves fishing which makes all the difference in your trip. Well Kay’s mini chocolate chip cookies and great hospitality don’t hurt either. Thank you Stan and Kay for two great memorable days hope to see y’all soon.

Randall Gresham

Thank you for such a wonderful day on the lake. Stanley is a fun guide. And your home cooked lunch was delicious. It was great to be able to spend the day fishing but not have to do a thing. Including cleaning our own fish at the end of the day. It was truly a relaxing time.

Jennifer Smith

First, thank you Stanley (and your wife!!) for a great weekend! Our group had a blast this past weekend. We really appreciated the time Stanley took to show and teach us a few things...not to mention, get us on some fish. And probably most unexpected (and absolutely fantastic) was the great lunch Stanley's wife prepared for us. Was great to spend a few minutes lakeside at their house, enjoy a great lunch and some great hospitality too. We will most definitely be returning for more great fishing trips on Lake Nac - highly recommend you book your trip with Stanley!!!

I am not one to give out reviews unless I am impressed. I just wanted to say that I have never had a more hospitable guide. So many times you get stuck with a guy who just does it for a living. Stanley was different. He has a clear passion and love for fishing. He is patient, kind, helpful and full of fun stories. He took the time to discuss all of the lake and the topography. As a guy who has fished all around, I love to hear about different lake features, why you fish them and why sometimes it just doesn't work out. He is not just a guide but an educator. We caught a lot of fish, mind you, but everything else he did is what made the trip. Me and my father-in-law were so impressed! And to boot, you cannot get a finer lunch and fellowship from Kay. I wish everyone could be so blessed to spend time with these folks. 110% satisfied.

Matthew Proctor

I spent a wonderful day fishing with Stanley, today. The water was muddy after a couple of rainy days, but Stanley was able to find enough fish to make me happy. The conversation was fun, and the fish I caught were nice 'biguns'. I'll be looking forward to another trip with Stanley one of these days.

Kay Jeffrey

Hey guys and girls just wanted to let you know about my fishing trip with Stan on January 26, 2021. We started at daylight and fished until sunset. Best day of fishing I have ever experienced. Stan put me on fish right away and they bit all day long. From 2 lbs to 10.86 lbs for me and Stan even pulled in a 8.42 lbs. Can’t wait to go again. If you don’t believe me look on Stan's hall of fame pics and you will see. Stanley, I am grateful, thanks for the trip of a lifetime. Never have I caught so many fish and had the 10 lb kicker to go with it. Call and book your trip now.

James Lloyd

My amazing husband suprised me with a guided fishing trip with Stanley. Stress free; no cleaning fish, no cleaning up, no loading the boat. If anyone is looking for a geat gift idea, Stanley is a great guide.

Shelby Dupree

Thank you! My boys had a great time. You wore them out and they made great memories.

Mandy Brooks

Thank you Stanley. My boys had a great time.

Amanda Beard

What a fantastic day of crappie fishing with Stanley! Totally exceeded our expectations, highly recommended. His wife Kay fixed us a great lunch which was unexpected, and we took home lots of fish! The Gresham's worked very hard to make sure we had a great time, which we most certainly did. Thank you very much Stanley and Kay, hope to see you early next year!

Steve and Lisa McHan

Marcus and I had a blast today. Thank you again for a great time.

Stephen Jacoby

Thank you SO much for the great day of fishing Stanley. Really enjoyed the company and the fishing

Scott Moore

My son and I went on a guided trip with Stanley last week. We had a very enjoyable time catching bass and listening to Stanley's stories. I guarantee Stanley will try his hardest to put you where the fish are. He has fished lake Nacogdoches for many years and knows every creek channel, hump, brush pile and "honey hole" on the lake. Give him a try. You will not be disappointed! You might even get some of Kay's (his wife) world famous miniature chocolate chip cookies!!

Kerry Suttles

Awesome! That’s how I would describe my day on Lake Nacogdoches with Stanley Gresham. Stanley worked hard all day long to keep me on fish and show me different techniques. Stanley loves to fish and shares his knowledge acquired from many years of tournament fishing with anglers lucky enough to book a trip. I’ll definitely be back. Thanks Stanley.

Dan Lade

Stanley Gresham has great knowledge of Lake Nacogdoches, was excellent in some of recommendations he made to me on how to fish this lake. Would highly recommend him as a guide, he really knows lake and conditions. Good Guy!

Phil Kneebone

Great job Stanley! I have fished with lots of guides over the years and have never had a harder working or more knowledgeable guide than Stanley. I brought my college bound grandson for two days on Nac, he had a great time and learned a new method of fishing that he caught most of his fish on. Spring fishing can be tough when you get the weather against you but we had to stay with my grandsons schedule or not fish. Stanley adjusted to that and made a successful trip for us. Stanley is a good Christian man with a great work ethic who knows all the holes and stumps on the lake and will put you were the fish are safely.

Joe Parker

Mr. Gresham, Thank you as well for putting up with us and certainly a hearty thank you for your stories (and your wife's cookies). Scott and I both had a blast, and that was not because of the 80mph wind. Great fishing for a while, but my brother and I are both experienced enough to know sometimes the weather can jump up and get you.

Thanks again, and you will be hearing from us in the near future.

Stephen (and Scott) Plumb

With all the craziness that comes with work and the family I rarely have time to grab a rod and catch fish. Over the weekend was an exception, and the fishing was exceptional too! I fished with Stanley Gresham, he’s a guide on Lake Nacogdoches. We crushed them, and I landed my personal best 9lb!!

Super nice guy, and the most accommodating knowledgeable guide I’ve ever used.
