Customer TestimonialsI have heard for several years that 10% of the water holds 90% of the fish. Hotdawg knows that 10% of the water. If you love a great day fishing, Tim Curtis will furnish a fun filled day. He works as hard at 2:45 p.m. as he does at 7:30 a.m. He loves his work, loves people, and loves having fun and a great day on the White River.
When I first met Hotdawg he told me that he was in fish acquisition.
I kind of thought that was funny, but I found out that it was the most
accurate description of his services, We caught 65 trout in about 4
-Shannon R. Foust, Plain City, Ohio
Coming from Southern California to Northern Arkansas the first time
we didn't know what to expect. But there's no guide like Tim "Hotdawg"
Curtis. He made us feel right at home on the lake and river.
Knowledgeable, friendly and knows where the fish are. We easily catch
and release 60-100 trout daily on the river. And Dawg makes a great
shore lunch you have to try. We have booked 2 to 3 trips a year with
Tim. Fishing is great, but catching is Dawg's specialty. Thanks for all
the fish, memories and fun times.

I really, really like fishing on the White River with Tim Curtis. He
gives his all to the whole day from start to finish. He is a fine,
polite, considerate Christian man. He knows where the fish are and helps
you find them.
Tim "Hotdawg" Curtis is one of the finest men - and the best Fishing
Guide - you could ever meet. I have fished with him on the Lake and
River many times. Tim is a very good teacher and guide for anyone to
fish with as he has over 33 years experience in Guide Service. Tim takes
excellent care of his clients and shows them a great time. If you would
like to fish on Bull Shoals Lake or the White River I would advise you
to call "Hotdawg" and book your trip. I will say that you will be happy
you did and you will have a great and very enjoyable trip.
If you're looking for the best guide on the White River, you've found
him. Hotdawg will work hard and make sure your trip with him will be
special and fun. Nobody works harder for the customer than Tim. I should
know, I have been fishing with Tim for 15 years now.
-Bob Frick, Columbus, Ohio
I have been fishing with Tim "Hotdawg" Curtis for six years. In
addition to Tim's deep Christian beliefs, he is a joy to fish with and
the best guide I have ever had the privilege of knowing. More than
thirty years of experience guiding on the White River is quite an
accomplishment. In addition to Dawg's expertise fishing for trout on the
river, Tim is equally at home on Bull Shoals Lake. I have had the best
bass fishing days of my life with Tim. Largemouth, smallmouth and white
bass are just a portion of the story. Dawg is also the local pro when
targeting striper and walleye.
A day on the White River with Hotdawg is one you will never forget. If it's trout you are after, Tim delivers both numbers and size. One of my partners, Don Beaman from Lee;s Summit, Missouri landed a 16.5 pound German Brown trout last Spring. We have had many trips when each man caught thirty and forty trout per day! The beauty of the river and the Ozark Mountains is breathtaking. When combined with World Class fishing, this is a trip you will want to share with friends and family.

Hotdawg, Thanks for the great trip and tips on Bull Shoals Lake. Bob
and I had a great time and your lessons paid off. We won the Promise
Land Resort Tournament. It was only a 16 boat tournament but all we were
after were bragging rights. We hope you have a great season and we look
forward to fishing with you again in the future.
-Bob and Andy
I've been fishing with Tim for 30 years. In this time we have caught
more fish than you can count. I fish with Tim numerous times a year and
we always catch fish and have a blast. I hope to fish with Tim for 30

I have fished with Tim (Hotdawg) Curtis and he is one of the most
hardest working, courteous and professional guides I have ever been
with. You can't go wrong with the "Fish Acquisition Specialist".
-Jim Miller - Glasco, Kansas
To whom it may concern; Tim Curtis has been a friend of mine for
several years. I find that his guiding skills are beyond reproach. His
knowledge of the White River and Bull Shoals Lake are the best in the
business. He is a good Christian man and is very serious about life and
his fellow man.
-Seriously: Eugene W. Mapes - D.C. - Lakeview, Arkansas
Just a short note to let you know, that the Saturday afternoon
fishing trip that we took with Tim (Hotdawg)
was sooo fun. We caught so many fish that I lost count. Tim kept us
entertained with his sense of humor and his experience as a fishing
guide. I have never seen anyone who enjoyed his job and wanted you to
enjoy your fishing trip as much as Tim. Good fishing and God Bless!!!
-Billy and Tana Sullins
Having fished with Mr. Curtis on numerous occasions I can honestly say there has never been an outing where we did not catch our limit. To quote Tim, "He doesn't go fishin, he goes catchin," and he always knows where they're hiding!
