Trophy Crappie, Catfish or Bass Fishing Trips

Come join Barton Outfitters on a fishing adventure you’ll never forget. We are located in Oxford, MS and primarily fish Sardis Lake, Enid Lake, Grenada Lake, and surrounding back waters for trophy crappie, white bass, largemouth bass, catfish and bream, but can customize any trip for your needs.

Your experienced, knowledgeable guides promise to not only put you on fish but teach you techniques for locating and catching crappie on the "Big Four" year-round.

Depending on the time of year, expect to jig or single pole fish from a boat or while wading. You can also try spider rig drifting or troll jigs or crankbaits, or even try your hand with a fly rod! Whatever you choose, you’ll have the option of 5-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Catfish, Bass, Crappie, depending on the season and weather

Your boat for the day will be a 17’ G3 aluminum fishing boat that fits up to 3 anglers at any one time. The boat comes with a wireless trolling motor to get you to those tight spots and a fighting chair to give you the edge when you’ve hooked a fish. There’s also an ice box, so you can keep your catch on ice before taking it home.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Just make sure to stock up on drinks and snacks, and make sure to get your MS freshwater fishing license before coming aboard.

Children are more than welcome so you’re good to get the young ones started early. All that’s left is for you to book your trip now and hit the water with Barton Outfitters – Sardis & Enid Lake.
