Luck O' The Irish - Lake Tawakoni

Luck O’ The Irish Fishing Guide Service and Captain Omar Cotter invite you to explore Lake Tawakoni and make a great catch possible. With over two decades of fishing experience throughout Texas, Capt. Omar knows where the fish are hiding and how to get them to bite.

This family-owned and operated company will work hard to make sure you have an unforgettable day out on the water. Capt. Omar will do all he can to make sure your time with him is filled with laughter and a lot of catches.

Your fishing trip will take place aboard a 20’ Fishmaster. This is a clean, seaworthy fishing machine with enough room for you and four fishing buddies. It is powered by a single 150 HP Mercury engine and is ideal for a productive day on Lake Tawakoni. There are a GPS and a fishfinder to save you time while you’re searching for the big one.

The boat is equipped with the finest rods and reels by Temple Fork Outfitters, Tightlines, and Extreme Baycasting. You will be provided with RSR lures and will be able to catch your own live bait.

Enjoy your day on the lake and hone your angling skills. Using the most productive methods, you will be able to catch Striped Bass, Hybrids, and Catfish.

As Capt. Omar likes to say, “Luck O’ The Irish is the only “Luck” you’ll ever need!”

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 Tawakoni is on fire for our guides! These White Bass and the occasional Hybrid are slamming the RSR Lures Do It Shad in White/Silver flash and 3/4 ounce on the cloudy days we have been having and any color on bright sunny days. The fish are holding anywhere between 14 to 30 feet currently and good electronics are a must! The water is still cool enough that slow steady movement is getting bit over a fast big raise and drop of the bait. We have a couple boats open on weekends to come out and experience the fishing in East Texas. Give us a try!
Great day on the Lake!

Billy brought his two son in laws Adam and Sam. Adam's son Hudson was catching fish two at a time. The group caught about 80 fish in 2 hours and then started to only keep them if they were 11 Inches or more. This group got their 100 fish limit of White Bass and 3 Yellow Bass for a total of 206 filets! Lots and lot of great eating to come!
