It’s that time of year. The blue catfish are on fire and they will only continue to improve over the next week or two. If you’re looking for fast action and lots of numbers of blue catfish, now is the time. The spring blue catfish bite usually runs through April and sometimes into May (it all depends on the weather and how quickly it warms up). It doesn’t get any better than right now for catching numbers of blues and of recent we’re still catching some trophy catfish mixed in as well. The bigger fish typically begins to slow down some when it gets into April. It’s one of my favorite times of the year to catch blue catfish and the weather has been gorgeous. As long as there’s some wind blowing to put a little chop on the water the fish will bite.
I’m doing things a little different this year for April, most of my trips are half-day mornings fishing for 4-5 hours and I’m also offering some half-day afternoons as well (the afternoon trips aren’t available every day.
I’m still fishing from the 26′ SeaArk Pro Guide so I’ve got lots of room and Terry is running the big Falcon with lots of room as well.
Check out some recent photos below.
Coming up in May, as soon as the blue catfish bite slows down when they move to spawn we’ll start chasing channel catfish and white bass. That’s another time where there’s a lot of fish and fast action. If you’d like to come fishing, you can book now here. We are only fishing at Eagle Mountain Lake for April. we’re just too busy to move around this time of year. We’ve got excellent fishing, awesome facilities and waterfront cabins though and we can pick you up at Lakeview Marina on the Fort Worth side or West Bay marina on the Azle side.
New Online Booking System Coming Soon
You’ve been asking for it so I’m FINALLY getting it done. I’m in the process of implementing an online booking system so you can view availability online, pay your deposit, etc and everything is “automagic”. I’ve got the system done and implemented but have a few bugs I’m still working through as well as trying to get all of my existing bookings moved to this new system.
You can go to our old booking page and use it for now. I’ll add a link on the top of that page soon to the new online booking system. I just ask that you be patient with me with the new system while I work through it all. Of course, you can always call or text me in the interim to check availability or book.
Even when the new system goes in place, don’t hesitate to reach out if the date you’re looking for does not show to be available. Again, we’re running multiple boats and we’re still working out some kinks.

You shouldn’t expect to receive more than 2 texts per month at the most. Just text the word CATFISH to 855-755-1982 to get signed up!
If you’re on a mobile device you can click here to send that text and get signed up.
We’re also working on a complete web redesign, some logo updates, new merchandise, and more (as well as some new trip offerings).
