Derek can take up to 2 guests on these half-day adventures. You will be fishing aboard his 18ft bass boat, which is suited to all your needs on Lake Travis. The vessel is powered by a 115 Yamaha engine that will power you across the smooth surface of the lake with speed. Derek masterfully guides the vessel to put you on your prey, taking you to his favorite fishing holes on the lake. Derek can provide all the fishing gear for you: rods, reels, artificial lures, and light tackle for you, but encourages you to bring your own if you'd like as well.

    I had a great time after he told me to park my car on the side of the road and it cost me $165 to get it towed out

    Had an amazing time with Shane on our Brazos river kayak trip. He was a phenomenal guide and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great fishing trip. Would absolutely do again!

    Tony A. with Shane D. of Brazos River, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Terrific trip with Milton. Fishing started slow, but we stuck it out and everybody caught their first-ever gar! Milton moved spots several times to get us more shots, and we caught fish while every other boat on the river got skunked. Will definitely be back!

    with Milton N. of Corsicana, Texas

    We went out with one of Milton's guides, Captain Manny. We chatted over texts before the trip and I'm glad we did. He asked about what we were expecting; trophies or quantity. This led him to suggest a different lake, which was the same distance from us. And it was perfect! He educated us on catfishing around the area and we picked his brain about fishing in general. That alone is worth the price of a guide. On top of that, he put us on a 20 lb blue in the first 15 minutes. The boat was very roomy for the 3 of us plus the Captain and just about anything else you would want to bring. I would consider this a very family and beginner friendly trip. They provided all gear and tackle. It whole process was so convenient I'm already thinking about the next dates I can get out there again.

    Adam M. with Milton N. of Ennis, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Exceptional fisherman. Great personality & love his excitement & laugh. My wife and I are in our mid 70's but in good health. However, he saw to all our needs and especially finding Crappie. Will be all fishing guide for every fishing trip we book in the future. Had a wonderful time.

    Dan A. with Kevin M. of Taylor, Texas

    Dawson runs an absolutely awesome 5 star operation. Putting us on big alligator gar at every turn. We will be repeat clients as soon as we can. What a day! What a trip! You haven’t caught big gar until you’ve fished with Dawson
