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....Read More
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.

Anglers should wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing that can get slimed and dirty, most likely a combination of both. Temperatures will range from 60's at first light to low 100's in mid afternoon. It is not a bad idea to pack a sweatshirt that can be left in the vehicle if not needed( spring and fall only) Anglers should always pack a lite rain suit whether or not rain is expected. River access points consist of nothing besides an area to park and a dilapidated boat ramp. There are no restrooms etc. near the river or launch site. Expect to get dirty on your trip both from holding fish and because it is impossible to avoid it in the river bottoms.
A valid fishing license.
