My husband.. Michael LIttlejohn
By far the BEST fisherman i have every met..
Not only does he put his faith and family first but he puts his customers first when it comes to fishing in his boat. You don't just get a fishing guide.. You get the Michael Littlejohn experience. I have witnessed and listened to his customers go on and on about how he gives them 110% every time they fish with him. If you have never fished with Michael put it on your bucket list to do so. He is an amazing fisherman and will go above and beyond to put his customers on fish and make that special memory for them and their guests.

Slabbie is a seagull on Lake Tawakoni that for almost two weeks would come to our boats while on anchor for a visit. He always visited alone...and within 5-10ft of the boat. He would follow us around the lake in that general area. Slabbie was always identified by the large 2oz. slab and treble hook stuck in his beak. We tried multiple times to rescue him by casting a line over him or enticing him closer to the boat by throwing pieces of cut bait which with effort he was able to eat. (He liked Frito's too). Every morning it was the same thing.. I would get on anchor and here comes Slabbie as I introduced him to all of our customers. I contacted TPWD and they agreed that if we didn't rescue him he would most likely die.
It even got so regiment that the sea gull would follow us into the marina, sometimes 4-5 miles and sit and watch us clean fish, etc.
Well, a plan was derived and Operation Rescue Slabbie went into fruition!
I called him over and started to feed him...(or her I dunno, lol) and Matt (Cartwright) hid behind his console on his boat and while the gull was busy watching me throw him a slice of shad, Matt made a swooping cast and as luck would have it Slabbie raised his wings to take off and the fishing line wrapped several times around Slabbies wings, entagling him enough that we were able to get him/her into the boat...

Fishing was primarily the passion of males … but that was then and this is now. Fishing is becoming more popular with women
More and more women are learning the sport of fishing each and every day. And, why not? It only requires patience and stamina. Most women were not brought up learning to fish. It's a "Father -Son" tradition and thank God my daddy didn't believe that. With two brothers and a sister I was the lucky chosen "fishin' buddy". Those memories on the water fishing with my dad will always be with me.
While fishing with many more women each year i have come to the conclusion that it's the enthusiasm and competition for the sport that brings them to my boat. Who better to compete against than your husband? It's always the same thing every time. "My fish is BIGGER than your fish" and now that fish becomes a "Social Media Fish" that with a click of your IPhone all your friends know "her fish is BIGGER". But on a serious note I feel that most women enjoy fishing with their husbands and family for the same reason "I do" their love for the sport and making memories with their loved ones. To all Men - I challenge you to bring your wife / girlfriend / daughter fishing with you next time.
Fish on - Guide Teri Littlejohn-
The One that Almost Got Away~
This is the time of year that we start Trophy Blue Cat-fishing in hopes of putting our customers on that “ONE BIG FISH” . I’m not talking about a general large fish like you might think, I’m talking a BIG, MONSTER blue catfish that eat ducks, snakes and even other catfish!! I’m talking about fish that will make a grown man yell with excitement and high-five everyone in the boat. It’s a memory that they will talk about forever.
It’s not just a “Fish story” it’s a SOCIAL MEDIA fish…you know, the kinda fish that gets sent around the world w/ a click of the iphone button…as soon as the fish is released.
After a long day of tough fishing including fishing 3 foot rollers and 15-25mph winds we finally set up in another spot as we had a hour left in the trip.
Fishing timber in shallow water is fun and exciting but can also get your heart broke when a giant gets tangled up in the timber!
Rick and his two son’s Chris and Adam were on my boat this day and all eager to see what reeling in a monster catfish feels like. Our first rod went down and Rick reeled down on her and horsed her out of the timber and she was a 28lb’er…a solid fish that most would love to catch. We took pictures and video and released her back into the water. After sitting another ten minutes without a bite I heard Chris on the back of the boat saying “I got one”. Chris was reeling down and I noticed the fish was wrapped around a tree. We let some line out in hopes that she would get herself free. After 10 minutes of trying we just coulden’t manage to get her free. We decided to reel all 10 rods up and head toward the tree she was wrapped in. She was completely wrapped around the tree and every time we let out line out…she took more! One thing for sure though…this was a BIG fish!
After a 30 minute ordeal, while casting Adam actually hooked onto the line that the fish was on. Quickly we grabbed our team catfish grips and started using them to wrap the line around as a make shift reel and after a few minutes this beast of a fish came to the top of the water as to say “it’s about time” !
Dad Rick grabbed the net and after a few minutes of fighting she was finally in the boat…
We couldn't believe it – we got her. Michael said he heard us all scream half a mile away.
We weighed her and took pictures and got a video of the release. She swam off to fight another day.
This trip wasn't about catching “Big Fish” all day long… It was about the one that “almost got away!”
Thank you Rick Dickson, Chris and Adam for a story i will remember

So today I am sitting on anchor around a ton of huge blue catfish and all of the sudden this giant fish swims to the left of my boat
Check out the shadow!
When my husband planned a trip for us to go to Port O'Conner off shore fishing - I was very excited. Knowing that there is one thing I would love to fish for and have never caught - a "shark". The trip was epic and we caught many sharks, king fish and just about anything we wanted those couple of days. But, the one thing that made the trip amazing was seeing the excitement in my husbands eyes. Fishing is such a big part of our lives and even when we go on vacation we usually fish...but, more importantly it's about doing something "We love to do together". Michael makes me smile everyday and if you think it's about the fishing....... you are wrong.. It's about being with your best friend : )
Sometimes as a fishing guide we find ourselves hardly ever fishing. Seriously! Isn't it the reason we got into fishing in the first place? WE loved it, right? YES!
Teri and I jumped on the Honda ForeTrax this evening...went and did some scouting for the upcoming dove season and both found ourselves looking at one of the farm ponds on our property thinking: "Bet the fish are Biting." Sick as it may seem, we motored back to the house, grabbed the bass gear and went FISHING!
We started out working a spinner bait under a 7p.m. sun and whammmo, big fish ON! Fish bit Baby Brush Hogs, Spinner-baits and would not touch a buzz bait.
We got in right before dark and both our legs were itching something fierce from standing in tha tall grass. Oh well, tha' price you pay for fun.
