Who We Are

Big Bass Hooker is a live bait and tackle shop serving Lake Brownwood and surrounding areas. We are a short drive from Lake Coleman, O.H. Ivie Lake, Proctor Lake, Hord’s Creek Lake, and Brady Lake. Big Bass Hooker was opened with the idea of being able to cater to the local fishermen as well as the weekend warrior from out of town. At Big Bass Hooker, I strive to continuously keep a large variety of stock and do my best to carry specialty items that are requested. Even being a family owned and operated store, Big Bass Hooker has been able to compete with the local big box stores as well as the big website wholesalers. I invite you to stop by, check out our large inventory and compare prices, maybe have a cold drink and tell a fish tail or two. I look forward to meeting you.

John WattsJohn Watts – Owner

I grew up in the Brownwood area, then moved to Midland, TX for my career in the oil & gas industry. A few years ago, I bought a house here on Lake Brownwood. While spending time on the water with friends and family, I soon realized my passion for fishing and wanted to open a bait and tackle shop. After finding an available location, Big Bass Hooker was opened in July of 2018 at 8615 Hwy 279, Brownwood, TX.
