Big Dawg Outfitters - Livingston

Come to a trip with Big Dawg Outfitters and discover new horizons of Texas fishing! Your captain and guide for the day, Scott Pierce, has been fishing for the most of his life and he knows the lakes and rivers in the Onalaska area like the back of his hand.

Join him for an angling expedition that you’ll remember in the years to come and explore the abundance and beauty of the inshore waters. Your fishing platform for the day is a 25’ Skeeter, whose name is pretty much explanatory of a great time you’ll have. The boat can accommodate up to 6 people, which means you can come with a group of your best angling pals or your whole family.

The vessel is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine that makes her stable and efficient in rivers, lakes, as well as flats and brackish waters. Whatever you catch, you get to keep, and you’ll have the top range Lew’s fishing gear at your disposal. In case you’re chasing fish in shallow waters, wireless trolling motor comes to the rescue to make you super stealthy.

There’s an array of trips to choose from, and it’s up to you to pick the duration of the expedition and species you will target. Capt. Scott is known for his specialized trips for Crappie, White and Largemouth Bass, and Catfish.

However, inshore A-listers like Redfish, Speckled Seatrout, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, and many more are also on the menu. Not only will you have an awesome time bringing those bad boys overboard, but you will also have a royal meal when you come back home because you can get your catch cleaned and filleted for an additional charge.

So, what do you need on the trip with you? Great company, drinks, snacks, appropriate clothing, and your fishing license are the most important things to remember. Please note that boots are not allowed on the boat. Feel free to come with your children, as long as they’re 3 and older, Capt. Scott will make sure they have an amazing time as well!

Depending on the location, an additional fuel charge may be added.

Captain Scott Pierce I’ve been in love with fishing for the past 30 years and it was that passion that fueled my desire to become a guide. I loves fishing so much that I decided to share it with all my friends, family and customers. My angling playgrounds are Sam Rayburn Reservoir, Toledo Bend, Lake Livingston, as well as Lake Nacogdoches. I have been married for 21yrs I have 3 children ages 19,17,10. My entire family loves the Outdoors, hunting and fishing. God has blessed me with the knowledge and the tools to be a great angler, it is a blessing to be able to share this with others.
