Bigguns Guide Service

BiGGuns Guide Service invites to explore the waters of Bridge City, Beaumont, and Port Arthur, Texas. Pat Powell is a local professional with over four decades of outdoor experience. Join him for a fun day out and enjoy everything South East Teas has to offer.

Your guide Pat specializes in fly and topwater fishing in the shallow waters of Sabine Lake and Bayous. He caters to anglers of all skill levels and expertise. Each trip with Pat is very informative and educating. He will guide you through the basics before you make your first cast.

With BiGGuns Guide Service, the list of your potential catches will include Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Tripletail. You will mainly be fishing with artificial lures. If you are fishing with live bait, your guide will have it prepared for the trip. Live shrimps, however, can be purchased at additional $20.

All you have to do is book a trip and set your foot aboard a brand-new 22’ Shoalwater flats boat. This spacious vessel comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. It can take you and two fishing buddies to the hottest grounds quickly and safely. The boat is rigged with navigational and fish finding equipment, along with a wireless trolling motor, a live well loaded with bait to make your hooks irresistible, and an ice-box.

All trips come with quality rods and reels by Shimano and Lew’s. As well as that, you will be provided with drinks, fish cleaning service, lures, and bait. Fishing licenses are not included in the price.

Pat can meet his clients in many places nearby. Please check it with him before the trip.
