Live Action Fishing – Dallas

Explore the lakes in the DFW area with Live Action Fishing! Captain Garrett Robinson runs fishing trips on any lake within a 2-hour ride from Dallas and Fort Worth. Since these cities are surrounded by lots of beautiful lakes with great fishing opportunities, you can ask your captain where to go, depending on the fish you want to catch. Capt. Garrett will make sure you have the trip you’ve always wanted.

You’ll be fishing from a 19’ Charger that accommodates up to 4 anglers. With enough room for everyone to fish at the same time, you won’t have to wait for your turn. The boat has been fully refurbished in 2020, so you’ll find the newest navigational electronics that will locate the schools of fish in no time. She’s also powered by a 200 HP Johnson engine, a live bait tank, and a cooler.

You’ll find some of the best Bass fishing in the state here! Target Largemouth, Smallmouth, Hybrid, and White Bass any time of year. If you’re looking for a delicious Panfish, you’ll find lots of Crappie as well. When you’re looking to reel in something heavy, look no further than Catfish night trips!

The catch is yours to keep, so keep that in mind as extra motivation! The captain will clean your catch free of charge, while during full day trips, there may be enough time to fry it as well. Your fishing equipment is fully covered and the only thing you need to do is purchase your fishing license.

Start your next trip with Live Action Fishing and enjoy Texas as never before!
