What to Bring and Wear on Your Fishing Trip

Texas Fishing License

Required for all persons over the age of 16 years old. If you don’t currently have a license, Wal-mart is a good source, and pretty much all sporting goods suppliers. Cost for a one day Texas Resident is $11 . Cost for a one day Non Texas Resident is $16. Cost for a full year (good Sept thru Aug) Texas Resident Freshwater is $30. Cost for a full year Non Texas Resident Freshwater is $58. Also you can call Texas Parks and Wildlife to obtain your license at 800-895-4248 (Mon-Fri 9:00am-6pm) or order online at www.tpwd.texas.gov

Drinks, Snacks, and Ice Chest

Bring whatever food, drinks or snacks you would like to have during your fishing trip. Also bring your personal cooler to place in the boat for your drinks and snacks. You will also need your cooler or an additional cooler to carry your cleaned fish home in.

Life Jackets for Children under 13

Texas Law requires; All Children under the age of 13 must wear a life jacket while the boat is moving. Texas Guide Fishing Service has all the required Life Jackets on board we will need including for the kids. But if you already have life jackets for the kids that fit just perfect, bring them.

Seasonal Requirements

Always put on your Sunscreen, (you know that). I’ll have some if you forget.

For Summer, Early Fall and Late Spring Fishing Trips – Dress to stay cool. Wear a Hat , and protect yourself from the Sun.

For Fall, Winter and early Spring Fishing Trips – Dress for it to be colder than you think it might be, it’s always colder on the water (you can always take off coats, wind shirts etc…, but you can’t put them on if you don’t have them). Dress in layers and for the outer layer, something that breaks the wind.

Rain Gear

Texas Guide Fishing has some Rain Gear if we should get caught in a shower, but if the forecast happens to call for a chance of rain, please bring your own rain gear (you will probably like yours better).

Bring your camera

I’ll have a digital camera and will take photos of your catch and Email them to you. But if you’re a photo buff, bring your camera. You will get some great shots.

What you should Expect

Expect to catch a lot of fish – I expect for you to catch a lot of fish, otherwise we would not be going fishing. I spend a lot of time looking and keeping on top of the fish, so that when I take you (the customer) out you can catch fish and not spend a lot of your time looking for fish or just simply trying to catch fish. We want to catch fish (and lots of them). If at the time of your booking the fishing happens to be off, I’ll tell you that also. I will always be truthful with you. Rescheduling your trip is an option.

During March through May, all fish bite well. Expect lots of Hybrids and White Bass first and foremost on Richland Chambers. Also during this time it’s eating size Blue Cats on Richland Chambers at it’s best – there is no better time for the eating size Blues than Mid March through Mid May. Starting about Mid Apirl we also start fishing the Crappie on Richland Chambers, Aquilla and Navarro Mills.

During June through November, At Richland Chambers the Hybird/Stripers and White Bass and Crappie are good to GREAT. The last few summers have been very, very good at Richland Chambers. Also the Blue Cats are very good again starting September thru February.

During December through February the White Bass and Hybrids can be very, very good on Richland Chambers. October and November provides some good Top Water Action on Richland Chambers, while December through February we Slab the Striper/Hybrids up from the deeper water, sometimes two at a time. Those Hybrids are fun to catch! And the Blue Cats can be great during this same time.

Also the December through Feburary time frame is when we do the Trophy Blue Cat Fishing (Big, Big Blue Cats), you have to try that, they will wear you OUT!

Expect to be treated very well by a professional – My goal is for all my customers to have an enjoyable relaxing trip (letting me take care of all the work) and you just having a GREAT day catching fish.

Expect to really enjoy your fishing trip – And plan an another trip as soon as you can.
