Making Memories

About Kirk

Kirk’s passion for “Making Memories” is his commitment to guests that come on board. From a casual fishing trip, a competitive fishing group or a leisurely sunset cruise, he will tailor make your trip to meet your needs. Growing up as a native Texan, he has been fishing several of the East Texas lakes; Tawakoni, Fork, Sam Rayburn, Palestine, Cedar Creek, Eagle Mountain, Ray Roberts, and Richland Chambers for 30+ years. From 2005 to 2010 he spent time fishing for speckled trout and redfish in Southeastern Louisiana. Now it is time for him to help you and your family, friends, or corporate group to experience a guided fishing trip on Lake Tawakoni or experience a stellar sunset on a pleasure cruise!

K/P Guide Boat & Equipment

“Making Memories” while searching for a great fish fight or enjoying a casual pleasure cruise, K/P uses only the best equipment to make sure your time on Lake Tawakoni is bountiful and safe!

The FISHIN’ BARGE® 24 DLX delivers all the room for “making memories” on the water and has many fishing features. Four fishing chairs (two at the bow, two aft) provide comfortable spots to cast from, or relax while you wait for a bite. Caught a keeper? The bow and stern livewells are both aerated to keep your keepers healthy. Other seating is in the form of the forward-helm couch and aft L-lounge, both with our STOW MORE™ seat storage system to keep your gear handy and ready to go.

Loved By Our Customers

I definitely recommend going out for the sunset pleasure. It was amazing and you can’t find a better sunset than a Lake Tawakoni sunset! Captain Kirk was awesome!! The grandkids loved getting to be the captain and steer the boat. 🙃
