Start your fishing adventure at the catfishing capital of Texas with Johnny’s Catfish Guide Service. Capt. Johnny has been fishing on Lake Tawakoni for 15 years and he knows where the fish hide. If you need a dedicated and experienced guide, you’ve come to the right place.
Capt. Johnny will meet you at Rainbow Cove Trail and take you on his 26’ JC TriToon boat. This pontoon accommodates up to 6 guests and it’s very spacious, so there’s enough room for everyone to fish at the same time. Thanks to the flat surface of the pontoon boat, it’s easy for people in wheelchairs to move around.
You’ll mainly target Channel and Blue Catfish, which are good eating sizes and also admirable trophies. Once you find a good spot, you’ll anchor down and fish close to the aquatic vegetation. It doesn’t have to be only catfishing, as you can also target Stripers, Hybrid, and Sand Bass. You can keep the catch after the trips and the captain will clean it for you.
Your fishing equipment is fully covered. Before the trip, you need to sort out a few things – purchase your fishing license, prepare snacks and drinks, wear warm clothes, and bring a cooler where you can stash your catch.
Whatever you choose as your catch, Johnny’s Catfish Guide Service will do their best to make it a fantastic, fun-filled fishing trip.
