Capt. Scott Pierce Etoile, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Looking for an amazing fishing adventure full of fun times and lifelong memories? Or maybe you just want a couple of hours of relaxation on the water with a rod in your hands? Whatever your wish, Big Dawg Outfitters is the answer! We offer the best lake fishing experience in the Etoile, Texas area possible!

Captain Scott Pierce is the owner and founder of Big Dawg Outfitters. Capt. Scott has 3 other captains he trusts to take his clients out, Capt. Reese, Capt. Barrick, and Capt. Johnson. Whether you are with Capt. Scott or one of his trusted other captains, you will be in excellent hands as there is well over 75 years of experience between our four captains. All four of our professional captains are very friendly and have a passion of teaching the art of fishing to every single client.

Trips with us will have you exploring the lovely waters of Lake Sam Rayburn. About a 2-hour drive from Houston, this glorious Lake sits near southeast Texas. Lake Sam Rayburn is full of fishing opportunities year-round and a trip with Big Dawg Outfitters will have you taking full advantage of these opportunities! 

Your fishing adventure with us begins once you step foot onto the brand new 24ft Skeeter center console boat. She can comfortably carry 6 anglers plus the crew. The design allows all anglers to fish at the same time, without knocking gear over. There’s a wireless trolling motor on board to help you sneak up on those anxious fish.

We offer full day trips that can go up to 8 hours on the water. You’re free to bring your own gear if you prefer but your captain will provide you with everything you need. We recommend bringing sun protective clothing, sun glasses, and an eager attitude!

We will target different species depending on the time of year your trip with us takes place. February-September, you can expect to see a Catfish on your hook as your reeling it in. The months of April-August and January will provide plenty of Crappie fishing. We target White Bass from February through September. Largemouth Bass swim this area year-round, so don’t be surprised to catch one of those prized species on any of our trips.

With a friendly, knowledgeable, and professional staff with years of fishing experience, Big Dawg Outfitters has the tools, resources, and expertise to provide successful fishing tours on beautiful Lake Sam Rayburn for an affordable price. So, what are you waiting for? Book with us today and experience fishing with Big Dawg Outfitters for yourself!
