Your captain for the day is TJ Fairbanks. He is the founder/owner and operator of Wild Thing Guide Service. He has over 20 years of experience fishing the North Central and North East Texas Lakes for many species of fish.
Capt. TJ fishes off a 23’ Sea Hunt Bay Boat with a 250 HP Yamaha engine, a wireless trolling motor, all necessary electronics, a sound system, and top-of-the-line rods, reels, and tackle. This boat is a great fishing platform and caters to 5 guests. It is kept in immaculate condition, stored in a wood-framed insulated shop, and will always be clean for your trip.
He offers full-service fishing trips for Striped Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, Blue Catfish, and Flathead Catfish on Lake Tawakoni and Lake Lewisville. He also offers Largemouth Bass trips on Lake Bob Sandlin February–April (one of the most overlooked Bass lakes in Texas).
Your captain will provide you with everything you need for your day on the water, including ice, drinks, fish cleaning, and bagging, and live bait if necessary. If you have a favorite rod for a certain technique, feel free to bring it.
Capt. TJ understands that success means different things to different people when going on a guided fishing trip. He caters to the hardcore fisherman, novice angler, and everyone in between. When you book a trip with TJ he will fish at your pace and will do his absolute best to ensure that everyone has a great experience!
