Background
My name is TJ Fairbanks and I am the founder, owner, and operator of Wild Thing Guide Service. I have more than 20 years of experience fishing the North Central and North East Texas Lakes for many species of fish. I understand that success means different things to different people when going on a guided fishing trip. That's why I cater to the hardcore angler, novice angler, and everyone in between. When you book a trip with me I will fish at your pace and will do my absolute best to ensure that everyone has a great experience!
