Catfishing on Lake Tawakoni in the summer time is typically crazy good! Catching 2-4lb channel and blue catfish as fast as you can reel them in… we typically fish for catfish in deep timber or shallow vegetation… Using prepared bates such as punch bait using a #4 treble hook. Our bait of choice is Mr. Whiskers. Summertime channel cat fishing is so much fun and great for those who like to catch instead of fish. Using light tackle and 40 pound braid… Catching these 2 to 4 pound fish is just a blast. Come on down in July, August, September, October and catch a bunch of good eating fish
The Hybrid Striper bite is great on slabs and top waters. Look for schooling action in the early mornings. It’s that time of the year!
Lake Tawakoni Guide Service Is the premier guide service on the lake. Fishing for Striper, White Bass, Crappie and Catfish
Lake Tawakoni offers some of the absolute best Striper Fishing in the State with many of the fish weighing over 10lbs and some weighing over 20lbs!
Only a handful of Texas' Lakes offer pure striper fishing. Tawakoni gives you a realistic chance to land a Texas' monster. These fish fight hard, provide excellent opportunities for a visit to the taxidermist and make a great picture.
Stripers have been stocked in Lake Tawakoni since 1979 with literally millions and millions stocked to date. These fish do school w/ their siblings...the Hybrid / Striper.

From the very beginning, fishing was always a part of our lives. Some of my earliest memories includes fishing poles, rides in the back of the pickup and trying to pick up big fish.
Lake Tawakoni Guide Service is a culmination of dreams, ambitions, struggles and ultimately a shot at making a living doing what we love, fishing. That was a long time ago. We set out on a journey and mission to provide a incredible fishing experience inside a idea that people want to be treated with respect and honor all while creating a platform of a total experience they would never forget. Just another fishing guide experience is not what we are...and it’s not ever what we wanted to be.
Today, we employ 5 full-time guides, operate 5 boats and have the incredible opportunity to show close 4,000 people a year our version of the fishing guide experience...both in fresh and saltwater. We catch over 30 species of fish, landing fish over 100lbs each year and most importantly grow our melting pot of friendships and fishing family through this platform we call our business.
We truly are blessed to share the boat with some of the best people in the world, understanding the Lord is in total control of our future and the reason fir our success.
Good Fishing to all...
LAKE TAWAKONI FISHING REPORT DECEMBER 2017
We chase the Mighty Trophy Blue Catfish on Lake Tawakoni December thru March. The Stripped Bass and White Bass
report seen below. My favorite time of the year
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 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...
