What to Target

Catfish

Known as the “Catfish capital of Texas,” Lake Tawakoni is clearly a haven for catfishing. Many fishing guides here specialize in going after Blue and Channel Catfish, with the chance to target Flatheads too. Catfishing is good year-round on this lake, with the chance to land trophy-sized beauties in winter, so you’ll have plenty of action to keep you warm in the colder months. 
 

Bass

While the lake may be known for its Catfish, you won’t want to miss out on the chance to target the range of Bass on offer here either. Stripers, Hybrid Stripers, White, and Largemouth Bass all call these waters home, with some creatures growing to incredible sizes. A record Striper of 22.25 pounds was caught on Lake Tawakoni, with the chance for Sand Bass action in the spring and fall to fill the boat. 
 

Crappie

Last and maybe least, the delicious Panfish, Crappie, is a year-round feature of Lake Tawakoni. These small creatures are not known for their game qualities, but they are ideal for beginners to land their first catch. Don’t miss out on the chance to go after a tasty treat to take home, with the fall yielding the best results. 

How to Prepare

Aboard a purpose-built fishing vessel, such as a bay boat, pontoon, or center console, you’ll have everything you need for a productive day. Make use of the latest rods and reels and a range of bait or lures to attract your fish, before your guide cleans and fillets your catch at the end of the day. Just check with your captain if you need to bring your own ice box to take the fish home. 
 
Other than that, you’ll need to grab a TX freshwater fishing license before you come aboard. Feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks, and away you go
 
With fishing on Lake Tawakoni possible year-round, there’s no reason to miss out. Make it your next fishing destination and test your skills against some prized freshwater beauties!

My girlfriend and I had an amazing time. Captain Jonathan is a great guy. Put us right on some fish and we started catching in the first minute of dropping our lines. We caught well over 100 during our half day trip.

We had a fun day on the water after moving to a secret lake due to be stormed out on Tawokoni and ended up landing a giant 40 pound blue cat after missing a couple others. We are glad the captain was able to accommodate us with a different lake to get out of the bad weather and still land a hog of a fish. You can’t go wrong with this guide service if your looking for trophy cats or giant gar!

We had such a great time with Captain Jonathan on Lake Tawakoni today. It was bitterly cold (wind chills in the 30’s) but we braved the weather anyway. Jonathan was so smart about the lake and showed us many points that are known for schools of fish. We moved around, which we liked much better than just staying in one place. He encourages questions and is so very helpful. We will definitely book again!!! Highly recommend.

Captain Omar and first mate Debby were excellent. His knowledge of the lake and ability to put us right on top of the fish was top notch. My daughter and me had a great time, caught tons of fish and Captain cleaned them all for us I would highly recommend using his services if your anywhere near lake tawakoni. And if Irish there is no other guide to call.

Had a great time on the lake. Ran into a mess of sand bass and pulled in some pretty good fish. Went out with near zero knowledge of lake fishing and learned a bunch from Jonathan. Equipment and service was top notch. Will probably book him again when the relatives come to visit.
