Davis Carter has been fishing since he was a young boy and has been guiding at Live Oak for one year. Carter enjoys taking clients out on his Skeeter ZX225 bass boat. Nothing gets Carter more excited than seeing customers land a big bass in the boat and having a good time. 

"There's not many places in the southeast with the quality of lake management and an abundance of healthy largemouth bass and speckled perch,” said Carter.  

When fishing the lakes at Live Oak Plantation, Carter likes to use Poppin frogs, Buzzbait, Squarebill crankbait and magnum speed worms. 

While guiding, his day starts very early in the morning. He picks up his clients at the main lodge, and makes sure they are prepared for their trip, either full day or half day. He teaches new techniques and coaches new clients who have never fished before.  

At the end of the day, Carter’s ultimate goal is to ensure memories are made, smiles are on client's faces, and fulfills one of the reasons people come to Live Oak Plantation- to catch big bass!
