Luck O' The Irish Fishing Guide Service

Luck O’ The Irish Fishing Guide Service is a family-friendly company that offers trips to the finest lakes in Texas. Captain Omar Cotter and Captain Don Novak have decades of fishing experience and a wealth of local knowledge to make sure you take home the fish you want.

Join them on beautiful Lake Grapevine and get ready to have a fun-filled day out on the water. Bring in some monsters and create memories that will last a lifetime. Target anything that is in season and biting!

There are a couple of species that could easily keep your rods busy. You will be targeting Hybrids, Striped Bass, White “Sand” Bass, and Catfish using light and heavy tackle fishing techniques.

Your vessel for the day will be a 20’ Fishmaster bay boat, built in 2002 and overhauled in 2014. This is a spacious fishing machine that can comfortably accommodate up to 5 anglers. Its single 150 HP Mercury engine will power you to the hottest grounds on the lake, while its top-notch navigational and fishfinding electronics will build up a clear image of where your Bass are hiding.

Your trip will include quality gear by Temple Fork, Tightlines, and Extreme Baycasting. When targeting Striper, you will be able to catch live bait as a part of the experience, while other species can be caught with RSR lures.

Luck O’ The Irish Fishing Guide Service also operates on Lake Lewisville, Tawakoni, and Cedar Creek. You can take a look at these locations by scrolling down the page and clicking the captain’s name.

Happy fishing!

Captain Don had a super fun day with a beautiful family. They caught quite a few good sized White Bass with a lot of undersized fish mixed in. The fish are hungry, and they bit all afternoon long. These fish are in the mode of eating morning, noon, or evening. Our captain can take you out on a 4 hour trip that starts when it is convenient for you anytime of day. Come out and enjoy the great weather and load up for a fish fry.
