Guide Catfish Trips - Ed Snelson Guide Service

Ed Snelson has been guiding bass fisherman for 39 years on Lake Sam Rayburn, Tx. In 1996, he started guiding for catfish – TROTLINING – on Toledo Bend Lake.

When you take a trip with Ed, all of your fishing equipment is supplied. He will furnish the trotlines, a custom built boat for trotlining, and bait. Lodging is typically at Bill’s Landing on the northern end of Toledo Bend (Texas Side). Bill’s Landing is a quiet fishing camp where relaxing is easy to do – in between fishing of course.

From “old-men” to young kids – who doesn’t love a HUGE catfish? This is truly a great environment for the WHOLE FAMILY, so be sure to bring them along.
Finally, a trip with Ed is one that you will NOT forget. From the story telling – to the fishing – you are sure to be entertained throughout the whole trip. And oh yea….YOU WILL CATCH FISH!!!!

Testimonial – By Mike Smith (Owner / Operator of Reel Texas Outdoors)

Pictures don’t do enough when describing a trip with Ed Snelson. My wife and I were lucky enough to get a trip with Ed from July 20-22, and we absolutely had a blast. We ended up catching about 413 lbs of catfish, and this was described as a “BAD” trip by Ed. I’ve head stories of well over 1000 lb of fish coming into Bill’s Landing on Ed’s boat, so I guess I do believe it was a “BAD” trip. However, to my wife and I it was excellent, as the average fisherman rarely sees 400 lbs of fish in a catch.

From the lodging to the fishing we had a great time, and I truly believe YOU will too. See some of our trip photos below – and book yourself a trip. I know you won’t be disappointed, and I GUARANTEE that you will catch fish!!!
