F.L. Catfish Fishing Guide

Experience catfishing at its best with F.L. Catfish Fishing Guide! Join Captain Floyd on Lake Tawakoni, a well-known spot for great catfishing. Your guide has been fishing in this area for a long time. After years of fishing on his own or at tournaments, he decided to start taking other people on the lake and showing them the best ways to get their hands on a trophy Catfish.

Capt. Floyd’s trips are family-friendly, so bring your kids and let them learn how to use the rod. It’s never too early to get them into this sport and teach them to love being out in nature.

You’ll be fishing on a 24’ pontoon boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. She’s powered by a 75 HP Yamaha engine and features GPS, to help you navigate more easily.

Since the main technique you’ll use is drift fishing, there’s no need for a variety of fishing equipment. The captain will provide you with quality rods and reels, and you’ll use live bait to get Catfish biting. Once the trip comes to an end, the captain will clean the catch for you. If you’re saving it for later, it’s best if you bring a cooler.

Your fishing equipment and catch cleaning are included in the price. You only need to purchase your fishing license and prepare some snacks and drinks for the day.

F.L. Catfish Fishing Guide will do his best to put you on fish. Choose a trip and get ready to land this heavy trophy!
