Fire Up The Grill!

This catch is definitely heading to the grill soon. Grilled Redfish is one of my favorites!


All my customers and everyone on Lake Calcasieu know how much I like Sheepshead. They are so fun to catch and great to eat. In Louisiana there is no size nor any number limit on sheepshead. Most guides on Lake Calcasieu consider sheepshead a trash fish, but not me. During certain times of the year, I actually target sheepshead. I’ve been called the Shephard of Lake Calcasieu because I keep the sheep.

Green Trout (Bass)

Just to chance things up a little, we ventured off to waters with a little less salinity. We found a pot of green gold. The Bass were everywhere and hungry. We boxed a 5-man limit of Bass. Nonstop action!

Sacks of Specks

The Lake Charles weather was beautiful and the fish were hungry. These guys had a great time and went home with full sacks of Specks.

Longtime Friends

Mitch and Pat have been longtime friends with many adventures together. I was privileged to hear about their hunting and fishing adventures and other stories that will never leave the boat. This is one of the things I love about my job.

The Total Package

Many of the Fishing Tom family of customers request the total package. This is fishing, lodging at our beautiful place and meals. Please check out the picture of our place and the meals that we offer. Then your next trip to Lake Calcasieu can be the total package like Shawn and David had.
