Alligator Gar Trips From One to Three Days 
Rates and Details for 2017

I will provide everything needed for you to enjoy your alligator gar fishing trip except lunch, drinks, and a valid Texas fishing license. You may bring your own cooler for your lunch and drinks or I will supply one. I suggest bringing a pair of polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, a light rain suit, a hat, and a change of clothes for each day. Meeting arrangements can be arranged about a week out from your trip, either on location or at an arranged spot. 

Rate is $550 per day up to three anglers. I require $100 as a deposit for each day of your alligator gar trip. Ex, a two day alligator gar fishing trip requires a $200 dollar deposit. The deposit is non-refundable unless the trip is canceled by me *or* I am able to re book your dates before the time of the trip. If needed trips can be rescheduled after initial deposit as long as 24 hour notice is given, I allow up to a year to re book dates. 

​For anglers desiring to fish four or more days please contact me with as much notice as possible, I will add extra services and pricing if this is desired, again please contact me for more details in this case.

​Additional Information
 Anglers should wear loose fitting,breathable clothing that can get slimed and dirty, most likely a combination of both. Temperatures will range from 60's at first light to low 100's in mid afternoon. It is not a bad idea to pack a sweatshirt that can be left in the vehicle if not needed( spring and fall only) Anglers should always pack a lite rain suit whether or not rain is expected. River access points consist of nothing besides an area to park and a dilapidated boat ramp. There are no restrooms etc. near the river or launch site. Expect to get dirty on your trip both from holding fish and because it is impossible to avoid it in the river bottoms. We catch a lot of fish, so the boat sometimes reflects that .I don't want to discourage anyone from a trip, but I think it is best enjoyed with an idea of what the environment consists of. before arrival.
