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.
