Messin’ With The Fish Guide Service

Messin’ With The Fish Guide Service offers guided fishing on Lake Tawakoni. Join Keith, a full time guide who has resided at Lake Tawakoni for 25 years. Guiding is his only passion in life next to his family, and he has spent much of his time here as a professional guide. He knows these waters well and caters to anglers of all ages. Come aboard and let him show you what this magnificent lake has to offer!

You will fish aboard a 21’ Aquasport boat that was upgraded in 2017. Powered by a 150 HP Evinrude engine, this craft has a maximum cruising speed of 34 knots. She comes equipped with advanced fishing technology, including GPS, fishfinder, and a wireless trolling motor. An assortment of quality gear is ready and waiting on board.

While fishing Lake Tawakoni, Keith will help you target Stripers, Hybrid Striped Bass, Sand Bass, and Catfish. You might use a variety of techniques depending on the species, from trolling and drift fishing to jigging. Keith provides bait casters, spin casters, rattle traps, slabs, and everything else you need to get the job done. All gear is of the highest quality, featuring the craftsmanship of Penn, Shimano, and Abu Garcia.

Messin’ With The Fish Guide Service offers pickup service from nearby locations. You may keep your catch and they will send you home with it cleaned and bagged. All you have to bring is a Texas state fishing license with a freshwater stamp.

Whether it’s Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, a birthday, or just some much needed time away, book your next trip with Keith and enjoy messin’ with the fish!

This whole taking people fishing thing started a long time ago. I was about twenty years old and I knew a lady who owned a marina on Tawakoni she would call me to take her customers and family fishing, so it all started with a case of beer and gas money for my services
