About Your Trip

Head out with Mike for an awesome day of freshwater Gar bowfishing! Alligator Gar are one of the most distinctive looking fish you can find, and Mike is one of the best guides around to help you spear one. His success rate with these exciting monsters is as high as 90 percent!

This Alligator Gar trophy hunting trip is designed for the individuals looking for a monster wallhanger. This all-inclusive trip features everything you need
for the Gar trip of a lifetime—3 days of fishing, 2 nights of lodging and meals are all included, as well as pickup to and from the hotel, fishing locations and dining spots.

On these 3 days of exciting fishing, Mike will motor you out on Lake Livingston in the morning where you'll be bowfishing for trophy-sized Alligator Gar for 8 hours, or until you get your fill! These 3 day trips will give you more than enough tremendous opportunities to connect on a trophy sized Alligator Gar. Plus it allows Mike to move to another location if one area has slowed down due to changes in weather and conditions.

All bowfishing packages include equipment (let Mike know if you are a lefty or righty) & fish cleaning. Mike's boat holds 8 comfortably, so make sure to bring some good company!

All deposits are final and non-refundable. However, if necessary you may reschedule your date or dates if needed due to unforeseen circumstances. Trips can also be extended at customers' request! Mike hunts anywhere in Texas.

Mark is the outfitter every serious bowfisher wants. He won’t quit until he puts you on fish. Very very knowledgeable and a trip that we will never forget! We will be back!

First Time Booking with Us?

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
