Frequently Asked Questions

What is your reservation policy?

Reservation Policy

A $100 per boat deposit is required to reserve a date. Dates can be reserved with a valid credit card. Full payment in the form of cash, check or credit card are accepted on the date of the trip . A four percent fee will be added to all credit card payments.

Cancelation Policy

Cancellations due to bad weather on single boat trips are to be determined by the guide at the trip departure site on the date of the trip. In this case, no monies will be paid by client. Any deposits will be moved to another date or refunded. Cancellations made 5 days or more prior to trip date can be rescheduled and deposit will be applied to new trip date. Cancellations made less than 5 days prior can be rescheduled but deposit will be forfeited. NO SHOWS will be charged a maximum boat charge.

Please Note: If you cancel a trip that means I have most likely turned down other clients requesting that date. Guiding is how I make my living, I cannot afford to be losing trips due to cancellations.

What kind of license do I need to fish on Texoma?

Since Lake Texoma is located in both Texas and Oklahoma, a Lake Texoma license is the best way to go. This allows you to fish anywhere on the lake. These licenses cost $12.00 and are good until December 31. You can purchase a Lake Texoma Fishing License at Walmart or buy them online.

The Game Wardens do patrol the lake and may ask to see your license. We obey all laws and regulations.

Everyone fishing in the boat age 16 and over will need a license unless they fall into one of the exceptions below.
