John Robinson started fishing when he was four years old and has never stopped. He has a wife and two kids that also love going fishing. He has been guiding for 20 years and began guiding at Live Oak in 2021.

"One of the reasons I like guiding at Live Oak is it gives the customer an opportunity to catch their biggest fish of a lifetime on any cast,” said Robinson. “Live Oak Plantation has some of the prettiest scenery that one could ask for.” 

When Robinson begins his morning or afternoon trip, he picks up his clients from the main lodge and heads out to one of the lakes here at Live Oak, hoping to land the big catch in the boat. When you step foot in his boat, he will help with advancing your fishing skills with many different types of lures. His favorite way to start the day is throwing crankbaits first, worms/jigs second, spinnerbaits and any type of top water lure. He runs a Skeeter ZX200 rigged out with Garmin depth finders and a Minn Kota trolling motor.

“Let's go fishing soon!!” said Robinson.
