"Joel took us out and put us on the fish, we worked hard for them but it was a blast! He even helped out my 4 year old reel in fish and took time to answer his many questions....Bent Rods guide service is great from finding the fishing holes, to cleaning our catch. Call Joel if you want a great fishing experience and an ice chest full of of fish for your fish fry!!"

"We had 3 adults and 4 kids on a guided trip today. Joel was amazing with the kids and the adults. White bass were biting well and he put us on them. He is a laid back guy who enjoys being on the water and putting his customers on fish. Seriously give this guy a call if you’re in the Elephant Butte area!"

"For us there is no better choice when it comes to fishing here in New Mexico. We love Bent Rods and Joel is the absolute best in the business. He always works hard to be sure we catch and is so laid back and easy going, a lot of fun to have as a guide! Thank you Joel, a day on the water fishing with you as our guide is worth every penny and we have made some awesome memories too!!! If you wanna catch some fish and enjoy a wonderful day on the water, look no further than Joel and Bent Rods!!!"

"My buddy and I met Joel near Elephant Butte Lake about 6:30am. We were on the water in a terrific, clean, stable, perfectly equipped deck boat [complete with an excellent shade canopy] by 7:00am. By 10:00am the two of us combined had landed well over 100 fish! I've been an angler all my life and I've never experienced this much action. We both kept our limits and our guide [Joel] did a terrific job of filleting/cleaning and packaging the fish for the ride home. Fishing quality aside, the conversation, laughter, scenery and overall experience was truly special. If you haven't fished with Bent Rod's Guide Services you owe it to yourself to book a trip."
