Johnny’s Catfish Guide Service is operated by Captain John Witt who has over 15 years of experience angling the waters of Lake Tawakoni. Knowing that his love and passion for fishing are out of this world, you will definitely have a fantastic and fun-filled fishing adventure!

Setting off from Rainbow Cove Trail, Captain John will take you to the best fishing spots there is. You will be targeting incredible catfish and bass along the spectacular waters of Lake Tawakoni which you can take home. Lake Tawakoni is also a well-known location for families who loves being outdoors doing different kinds of activities or just stay there to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery!

You'll be aboard a 26’ JC TriToon boat that can accommodate up to 6 guests. This vessel is very spacious making it comfortable for everyone to fish at the same time. It is also very accessible for those needing accommodations, such as wheelchairs, thanks to the flat surface of the pontoon boat. We also welcome anglers of all skill levels to join this charter for a thrilling and exciting fishing excursion!

The charter service covers all fishing equipment and safety gear for your trip. Your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you as well. Simply step aboard with your fishing license, wear proper clothing, sun protection, snacks and drinks, and a cooler for your catch!
