Lake Amistad's Premier Fishing Guide

Welcome to Ray's Hanselman Website

Lake Amistad's original and premier fishing guide and three-time recipient "Angler of the Year" Ray Hanselman Jr. is a full-time professional Lake Amistad native fisherman with over 30 years of fishing experience, and 19 years of guiding experience on Lake Amistad, specializing in black bass and perfecting the latest tournament technique.

One of the most versatile fishing guides in Texas, Ray is equally happy helping a father-son duo catch their first limit on Lake Amistad, or a seasoned tournament fisherman absorb the finer points of a new fishing technique that would normally take several trips to perfect. His obsessiveness with details will be immediately appreciated!

Ray has appeared numerous times on Fishing and Hunting Texas, Americana Outdoors, The Chevy Sportsman, and Buckmasters, Bone Collector and Trophy Hunters TV. Various articles in BassMaster, Texas Fish & Game, Honeyhole, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and Texas Monthly have featured Ray as an excellent fisherman and Premiere guide.
