About Us

Hi,  My name is David DiBartolomeo.  I own and operate Dave’s Fishing Guide Services and have 12+ years experience fishing the lakes of New Mexico.  I’m passionate about fishing and love sharing my time on the lake with my customers.  I’m easy going, enjoy working with people, and strive to make your day of fishing fun and exciting!  My clients always have bent rods and fish in the live well!!

I was born and raised in New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment.  I enjoyed scouting as a teenager, becoming an Eagle Scout, and spending a lot of time outdoors.  I continue to be an avid outdoorsman  splitting my time between the lake during fishing season, and the mountains during hunting season.

I am a fully insured and licensed fishing guide.  Trips take place on a 20′ pontoon boat that provides a safe, stable, and excellent platform for our trips on Elephant Butte Lake.  The boat is equipped to take up to 6 people comfortably, rigged with the latest technology and a large canopy for shade.  All bait, tackle, rods, reels, and safety equipment is provided.  We also clean, fillet, and package your catch at the end of the trip.

Our charters are suited for all levels of experience.  Come join us as we catch the fish Elephant Butte Lake has to offer:

  • White Bass
  • Walleye
  • Crappie
  • Black Bass
  • Stripers
  • Catfish

Just bring your New Mexico fishing license, snacks, drinks, and sunscreen for a great day on the lake!
