A day on the water with Red River catfishing guide Donovan Pearase of Blackwater Cats Outfitter will be a trip to remember! On this catfish mecca the cats are both powerful and plentiful averaging 20 lbs thoroughly testing the fishing skills of catfish anglers.

Whether you need a Lockport catfish guide or Selkirk catfishing guide Donovan knows the Red River intimately and the goal is a fun trip full of big catfish, good laughs and great company.
One battle with the bottom dwelling catfish fury of the Red River will leave you wanting more! if your arms can handle it!
