Art Ferguson's Professional Bass Fishing website!!

This summer was one of the BEST guide season's I've ever had on Lake St. Clair and the Great Lakes. We averaged around 70 smallmouth bass a day throughout the year!!!!

Fish were biting all over the lake and rivers making guiding a true delight. Weather was incredible as well making most trips enjoyable for my clients.

Tubes were the dominant bait as always, but many fish came on moving baits such as crankbaits and spinnerbaits and more subtle baits such as Yamamoto Senko's and Flukes.

Bill King from Ohio caught the largest smallmouth bass out of my boat
EVER with a 6lb. 10oz. TOAD caught on a Provider Tackle "Fiesta Melon" 4" tube
with a 3/16 oz. tube head!!!


GUIDE UPDATE: Starting November 19th, I'll be down for my 21st season of guiding in Central Florida. I'm very excited about the upcoming fishing on Lake Toho, Kissimmee Chain of Lakes as well as many smaller lakes around the Disney/Orlando areas. I'll also be working some on Lake Okeechobee in 2012 where I spent 14 years guiding until 2005.

LURE BUSINESS UPDATE: PROvider Tackle keeps expanding!! 
We are in several retail stores including Tackle Warehouse.

The name has become nationally known with several of the
top pros using my baits to finish well on the FLW and BASS tournaments. 

We have several new lines of baits coming out including a pitching jig and an Alabama style rig which will blow your mind!! Check it out and learn more at www.providertackle.com



TOURNAMENT UPDATE: 2011 has been another challenging year for myself in tournaments. I had two top 20's in both BASS and FLW Stren Series events but the rest of the season I was challenged with only being able to put one good day together in the events.

2012 should be better as I will be fishing two national tournaments on my home waters of Detroit River in Michigan and on Lake Okeechobee in Florida where I spent years guiding and learning what it takes to catch fish under most conditions.

God bless and good fishing,
