Donnie Thomas, licensed fishing guide offers full and half day guide trips on the finest East Texas lakes.
Each client receives professional instruction, tips and service during each trip. Please check out the rest of this site for more information.
Donnie is a licensed guide with the Texas Parks and Wildlife, has completed the Texas Boating Safety Course and properly insured for the safety of my clients.
An accomplished fisherman who has fished the East Texas lakes for over 20 years.
Over the years, I have competed in several clubs, circuits and the EverStart Series as well as the founder of the "Little Buddies Bass Club".
This club was designed for the tournament fisherman who wanted to fish competitively with their kids and grandchildren. Past clients include parents and their kids, husband and wife, seniors and individuals.
I work with beginners up to the more advanced angler and take great pride in bringing the excitement of fishing to a newcomer.
On a guide trip, you will enjoy your day in a 2002 Ranger 518VX with a 200 Mercury Optimax. Onboard electronics include Lowrance GPS among other Lowrance products. If you need fishing gear, I have it all, but encourage you to bring your own rods and reels. You will be more familiar with your own equipment.
My goal is to make sure you catch fish, learn something new, but most of all enjoy yourself and have fun!
If you need overnight accommodations we own Seven Gables Bed and Breakfast. Seven Gables is located 15 minutes from Lake Cypress Springs, 20 minutes from Lake Monticello/Lake Bob Sandlin and 30 minutes from Lake Fork. Check out the Rates.
