Billy Carter, owner of Johnson's,
having pulled in his share of "large mouths"
from around the big cypress, Billy now prefers
"catching" to "fishing." He enjoys
taking out groups, including families with children and
the physically challenged, who want to sit back, relax
and catch fish. Billy furnishes all tackle and bait.
Billy Carter has been a licensed fishing and hunting
guide on Caddo for more than 40 years. His extensive knowledge
of the lake and his expertise as a sportsman qualify him
to guide visitors through Caddo's intricate network of
bayous and sloughs for fishing, hunting, birding, photographing
or merely absorbing themselves in the primitive beauty
that is Caddo Lake.
Very personable, Billy has some tales to tell,
from a night spent lost in the fog in Alligator Thicket,
swimming with alligators as a youth, to spanking beaver
trying to dominate his fishing hole. Billy has
been featured numerous times in Texas Outdoor Journal,
and numerous articles in newspapers and other publications.
Billy's experiences and stories (a lifetime in
the making) seem as unending as the intricate maze of
sloughs and bayous he calls home.
Get a glimpse of Billy in an episode of Animal
Planet's Treehouse Masters and in two
episodes of National Geographic's Snake Survivors.
"A bad day of fishing beats a
good day of work!" is Billy's motto.
