To find fish on Amistad, I’d need help. James Burkeen has been fishing the lake on and off since he was 10 years old, when his family lived on its shores. He’s fished Lake Fork while living in Dallas, and several other famous Texas bass lakes, but now guides on Amistad.
Burkeen had a good job in the cell phone industry but said he couldn’t let his dream of making a living doing what he loved go. So, five years ago, he took to the lake he knew best, and set about finding fish for people on Amistad, and he hasn’t looked back.
