As seen on Fox 4 News see Guide Keith Parks releasing this 73 pound Trophy Catfish, was about 15 pounds shy of the Lake Tawakoni Blue Catfish record.


Why hire a fishing guide?  As a child, I was always trying different methods to catch fish. Whether tying on a diving crank bait, spinner bait, soft plastic or just using some form of stink or live baits trying always to catch more and bigger fish. As I got older things started getting more complex and expensive purchasing boats, tires, trailers, bearings for trailers, fishing rods, fishing reels, fishing lures, fishing lines, leaders, weights, hooks, depth finders, GPS, boat registrations, trailer tags, throw nets (plural), scales, awesome fillet knives both electric and standard, dip nets, gas, oil and a truck to pull it all to the lake. Not to mention maintenance repairs, tags, stickers and a host of other things I haven't mentioned. I would say for that person whoe doesn't fish several times a month the price you pay for a fishing guide's knowledge, skills, equipment, personal fishin' spots and time is priceless. Most guides here on Tawakoni will treat you and your family with great respect and do all they can to put you on fish. Just do your homework choose a reputable guide and enjoy a day of fishing on beautiful Lake Tawakoni or your favorite fishin' reservoir....Guide Keith Parks
