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!!!

    Hi Britt,

    Thanks for the comment… you can look up Bill’s Landing on the NW side (Texas Side) of Toledo Bend and they should be able to get you set up. I know Charlie and Rhonda (the owners) sell fresh fish out of there all the time. Just google bills landing and give them a call.

    Thanks again, man!
