About this trip

Captain Michael Littlejohn - Guide / Owner

I am U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain and hold guide licenses both fresh and salt from the State of Texas. I have been guiding since 1998. As a matter of fact, I put myself through college guiding fishermen for catfish and crappie on Cedar Creek Lake. But, before that at a very young age my father and grandfather (both excellent fishermen in their own right) introduced me to lifelong passion of fishing.

I think my mere drive to provide the best guide service in TEXAS, mixed with the fact i'm among the youngest among my colleges pushes me. I always try to top my last trip and it snowballs from there. I leave it all on the lake...giving it everything I have on EVERY trip. It's just the competitive nature in me. From stretching the string on the Texas Gulf Coast, to kayaking the devils river and fishing for small mouth bass, my love for fishing in Texas has been long lived. Over the last several years, my desire has grown to teach others how to fish. Nothing is better than spending time w/ folks on the water and watching them enjoy themselves catching fish, sharing stories and making lifelong memories.

I am also an avid competitive tournament trophy blue cat fisherman. The sport and conservation of the Trophy Blue Catfish has grown and so has the desire of people to learn to catch these fish. Something I enjoy is to help others learn about the large blue catfish and help fellow fishermen learn to catch them on rod and reel.

When it comes down to it, hardly anything compares to catching large crappie on light tackle – year round. No matter what time of the year, I enjoy teaching others to catch large barn door crappie on Lakes Tawakoni and Cedar Creek. I also travel to other lakes and help other fishermen fine tune their electronics and side-imaging. I enjoy tweaking the electronics to maximize their potential for any application of fishing. When off the water, I enjoy photography, videography, video editing, guitar, playing football, outdoor writing, yard work and spending time w/ my wife and family.
