Captain Dawson is a well seasoned and experienced angler, and is THE guy to call for a trophy alligator gar trip. He is honest, and a well trusted expert in what he does, and that is put you on the trophies.
He has been contacted by, worked with, and been featured by, Field & Stream Hook Shots, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and Fishing Headquarters Magazine, just to name a few.
Captain Dawson is known as one of the hardest working and dedicated anglers in Texas. Forever searching for new honey holes, continuing to advance his knowledge of fresh water, and always fine tuning his fish sense, there are just truly not many guides like him.
If you are on the search for one of the best guided alligator gar fishing trips ever, this is your stop. Texas is the best place in the world to catch trophy alligator gar, over six feet long and 100 pounds, with a rod and reel. During your eight hour trip, Dawson will help you navigate the tricky waters of Trinity River, guiding you to fare the fluctuations in water levels, shallow rock bars, and even bait stealing turtles to catch a trophy alligator gar. Some other species you may encounter on your trip include longnose gar, catfish, and freshwater drum. All fish however, including the alligator gar, will be caught and released to support the conservation of the species. However, Dawson can recommend an excellent taxidermist if you would like a replica. Keep in mind, these fish and these river bottoms get rough and muddy, prepare to get dirty, but have a great time doing it. All gear like Eagle Claw hooks, Cortland Masterbraid line, Penn fishing reels, and more will be provided. The only things you'll need to bring are a fishing license, and any snacks and drinks you need to fuel your epic day. Read More
