Had so much fun with my dad and son-in-law. Thanks, Dave, for putting us on the fish. It's always great to go home tired and with a limit of whites. Thanks for the knowledge you share and for the wonderful service. Looking forward to next time.

Thanks, Dave, for another wonderful day of fishing. Looking forward to our next opportunity to go out together. Made some lifetime memories with my son and daughter. We had a lot of fun.

Thanks again for another great trip!   I have made 4 trips in the last 3 years.  Over that time 10 fisherman have put 275 fish in the box for an average of 27.5 fish (combination of white bass and yellow bass) per person per trip!  Unbelievable!

We cannot thank David S. Cox enough for taking us out hunting yesterday on what was going to be his day off. We had a successful day and ended up with a trophy wood drake! We had a blast, and this trip made my season!

To my duck hunting friends; if you are looking for a fun, personable, and knowledgeable guide check out Dave and Palmetto Guide Service on Lake Livingston. Kenneth and I wanted a change of scenery, and to target ducks we don't see on the coast. Next year when the split comes up for the south zone, the north zone is open for part of that time.

Father and Son Trip: "This is what my son posted when we returned from Lake Livingston: 'Went out on the lake with my old man. Caught around fifty white bass over the course of half a day. Such a great way to spend a weekend!'
I don't need to say more, but I want to. David Cox was the ultimate professional. He was patient with us as we splashed around and caught an occasional tree. He continued to give tips and encouragement as he shared some great stories with us. He put us on the fish in short order and made sure we had a good time. He cleaned the fish for us and sent us home to a great fish fry. I would heartily recommend him to friends and family!" 

We TORE the fish up! We caught our limit in less than an hour and a half. Just left us wanting more. Too much fun David.

Steve and I thoroughly enjoyed our time on the lake with you. During the few lulls in action we enjoyed your stories! Thank you for making this a memorable Father's gift from Sharon, Jeff, David and Steve. We highly recommend you as the thee guide on Lake Livingston.

Cory commenting on 2cool fishing,

Thatís one good looking crew, I have to hand it too Mr. Palmetto and his Guide Service they put us on the fish from the get go and the bite never stopped.


My dad and I booked a wood duck hunt, and we made out pretty good for a lack of clouds and slightly warmer than optimal weather. Dave put us on the birds and the man definitely knows his stuff. You won't get this kind of service with your Katie Prairie big box outfitters. We killed birds. We had a good time. Enough said.

Thanks again for the trip and I will definitely call you up again in the fall. I will email you a pic of all the catfish.

Thanks, Kevin Fiala 4-11-2011


Thanks for the fun day of fishing. Thank you too for working with Dallas and setting things up for him to fish the easiest way possible. I will call again, when I'm back in town.

Cheers and good fishing,
