Top Of The Line Equipment For Your Enjoyment

The Vessel

Captain Roy's vessel of choice for fishing Lake Tawakoni is a 26 ft. Center Console Pathfinder! Our boat is powered by a Mercury 400R four-stroke outboard motor to power our company quickly, yet safely across the lake to each fishing hot spot!

Quality Rods & Reels

The fishing rods & reels we provide for use on our guide service are top quality and built to last! Our quality reels are accompanied by graphite rods from Temple Fork Outfitters while also using lures from RSR Lures! We also re-spool our reels with line multiple times per year so you can put those Striper, Crappie, Hybrid, White Bass, or Trophy Blue Catfish in the net!

Sonar & Trolling Motor Technology

With NTX Guide Service, you'll never be wondering where the fish are. Using Sonar technology by Lowrance and Humminbird, we can detect each school of fish within a radius of the boat as well as how far below water level they are!

Our Minn Kota trolling motor further assists us by quietly keeping up with the Hybrid, White Bass, and Striper so you catch a fish on nearly every cast!

Crappie & Trophy Blue Catfish Fishing Charter

Some of the very best Crappie fishing is done at North Texas’ very own Lake Tawakoni. While they are often overlooked due to the abundance and popularity of Striper fish and Trophy Blue Catfish, it is very typical to reel in an ice chest full of Crappie fish averaging at 1 – 2 lbs within a half day during the late Spring or Fall! Ask Captain Roy during your fishing guide service about multi-species fishing as Crappie fish tend to flock to certain areas of the lake!

Lake Tawakoni is known as the trophy blue catfish capital of Texas! With records set of weighing over 80 lbs, anglers from all over Dallas, Fort Worth, McKinney, Plano, Austin, Houston, Oklahoma, and even as far as Tennessee, Missouri and Florida make their way to Lake Tawakoni to reel in the monster trophy blue catfish that inhabit the water.
