Meet Captain Mike Meeks and Slabbin Mike’s Crappie Fishing And Guide Service

Captain Mike Meeks, the expert behind Slabbin Mike’s Crappie Fishing and Guide Service, has a lifelong passion for fishing that began on the waters of Oklahoma. Growing up near Adair, close to Tulsa, Mike spent his childhood fishing for crappie, often contributing to his family's fish fries with his impressive catches. His love for Oklahoma fishing took him across the state, from reeling in stripers on Lake Texoma to landing sizable smallmouth bass, exploring the numerous lakes surrounding his hometown.

Mike's extensive experience spans decades, during which he part-time guided eager anglers through Oklahoma’s rich fishing waters. In 2022, he realized his dream of becoming a full-time fishing guide, dedicating his expertise to helping others enjoy the thrill of crappie fishing in Oklahoma. Mike’s deep knowledge of local waters, including Lake Oologah and Grand Lake, positions him among the top Grand Lake fishing guides. His familiarity with these prime fishing spots ensures a rewarding experience for all who join him on his guided trips.

In addition to his guiding career, Mike is a devoted family man who cherishes time spent with his young son, whether they are boating, enjoying outdoor activities, or playing sports. As a licensed USCG captain, Mike prioritizes safety and comfort aboard his 18 ft Tracker boat, which accommodates up to three anglers comfortably. His friendly approach and dedication to creating memorable fishing experiences make him especially popular among families, often helping young kids reel in their first fish. For an authentic Oklahoma fishing adventure on the scenic waters of Lake Oologah or beyond, Captain Mike Meeks is the ideal guide to lead the way.
