Lake Livingston Texas Fishing

Lake Livingston Texas Fishing invites you for a day on the water with Captain Richard Bolton. This is a family-friendly charter that guarantees that children will have the time of their life, both fishing, and bonding with their family members.

Captain Bolton will take you out on his 25-foot Ranger pontoon, originally built in 2003, and restored in 2016. This boat is powered by a 300 HP Evinrude engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots. This makes it ideal for the lake and for a quick change of productive spots.

The boat is equipped with all the safety and electronic features you might need and features all-new seats and flooring which were installed in 2016 for your comfort. The boat also has a Bimini top to shelter from the sun and is great if you are taking the whole family out.

Lake Livingston is the second largest lake in Texas and is very rich in fish species that are of good game and good food quality. You will be able to experience a half day or full day of fishing on beautiful Lake Livingston targeting White Bass, Crappie, Striped Bass and Catfish.

The charter will provide you with everything you need, just make sure you bring a cooler so you can transport your fish home safely.

Lake Livingston Texas Fishing looks forward to meeting you and making memories with you and your family. Captain Bolton says that if the weather is hot and you tire from fishing,  you can beach the boat at Pine Island and enjoy swimming and playing in the water.

Now just book a trip that’s to your liking, block out a date in the calendar, and prepare for your next fishing adventure!
