About Your Trip

If you're looking to land the biggest, baddest freshwater fish south of the Mason-Dixon, this trip with your pro guide, Milton, is what you want.

Milton is well known in Texas for his ability to find, hook, and land some absolutely massive Alligator Gar, which can get up to 200 pounds and over six feet long! These fish are top predators in their environments, and hunt everything from fish to frogs to ducks and small
mammals. The Trinity River outside of Dallas is home to some of the biggest Gar in the country, so get out there and get some!

On this trip, Milton will motor you out to the deep holes in the river, where you'll be using heavy tackle with steel leaders to hook these prehistoric monsters. Gar are ferocious fighters, and going toe-to-toe with one of these fish is an experience like no other. Plus, their alligator-like teeth can do some real damage, so watch out.
Milton has a whole cache of secret spots up and down the Trinity, so if it's not happening in your current spot, he'll move you to the next one until the fish start biting!

You'll be out there on Milton's 20' G3 skiff. She has a shallow draft to let you in to every part of the river, and has a 150HP Yamaha to get you wherever you want to go.
Milton will provide all the rods, reels, leaders, bait, snacks and drinks for your trip. All you're required to bring is your Texas All Water License. Milton's boat fits 3 anglers comfortably, so make sure to bring some good company. Finally, bring sun protection and proper clothing—it can get hot out there!

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!

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...

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.
