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 Stripers, 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!

Luck O' the Irish has over 20 years of experience in all types of fishing. From Sand Bass, Stripers, Hybrids, Crappie and Catfish. We pride ourselves in our extra "Fish" senses knowing the habits and whereabouts of our catch. There's many tricks of the trade and we're apt to share with you to make sure you, our guests, have an enjoyable time and catch your fill while your at it. We pride ourselves in our teaching trips if that is what you are looking for we don't hold back any information you may need to be successful on your own. We are family owned and operated and encourage family trips and events because that's how we grew up. A day on the lake with Dad or Mom makes for great family time and builds a lifetime of great fish stories about the one that didn't get away.

Lake Grapevine 11/15/2020 am Most good things in life are blessed even more when shared. Al and his daugjter, Becca share a bitthday and Al's wife Sherry decided they needed to share a fishing trip as a gift. The day dawned cool and clear with a North wind. Leaving the dock around 7:25 the first stop was the island on the South shore and while the fish were there the action was slow. The birds didn't fail to show the way to the fish though and soon the good eating White Bass began coming into the boat with increasing regularity! Sixgill Fishing Products rods/reels with the "Irish Minnow" from RSR Lures are still producing these heavy stringers. Once the trip was over Al and Becca were able to enjoy lunch at Big Daddy's Lake Grapevine. Their captain brought them there fish cleaned, bagged and ready to cook.

Lake Grapevine 11/10/2020 morning Capt Omar amd Capt Jonathan tag teamed to put Ben and his son Drew on some great fishing! Beautiful Lake Grapevine did not disappoint with Gulls working bait fish from the start to finish of their 4 hour trip! Ben and our captains were blessed when he caught the biggest catfish of his life! RSR Lures absolutely will catch anything that swims, fresh or salt water! Ben and Drew had plans for some of their fresh catch for dinner that evening. This is a prime time to come enjoy cool mornings and warm afternoons. Book us today to come catching!

Jackson's birthday was made special because his mom Jessica decided he needed a birthday fishing trip. Luck O' The Irish was blessed to be the guide service she chose to take them out. This young man can fish! Every adult in the boat including Captain Omar was making sure he reeled in as many fish as possible. The fishing was excellent and the catching even better. The RSR Lures in "Do It Shad" and "Irish Minnow" had non-stop action the entire trip! The weather has been perfect and we can only hope it stays this way a little longer. Book us today to come catching!
