Let Captain Alex be your guide to some of the top fishing locations on Texas' long, beautiful Gulf coast. Captain Alex is based out of Port Aransas, but he fishes all the water in the Coastal Bend, from Aransas Pass down to Corpus Chisti Bay. He specializes in rod-and-reel techniques for catching Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Drum, and Flounder, and will provide all the equipment and bait you'll need for the ideal inshore fishing adventure. All you need is your Fishing License, proper clothing, some sunscreen, and a cooler for your cold drinks. You'll be fishing aboard his 23' Majek center console, a fast boat powered by a 200-HP Evinrude engine. Captain Alex knows this water well, and he'll put you on top of some terrific fishing spots. Depending on the area and the species, you'll use a combination of live bait and lures on light tackle to bring in the fish. Alex is extremely knowledgeable and can certainly help you practice your cast or tell you about fish behavior and ecology. Captain Alex's chartered fishing trips provide a great way to get out on the water and relax on the Bay with your family, friends or co-workers on that special outing! So head out with Captain Alex to make some memories worth making! Read More

We had a great day. We limited out in less than 2 hours and to finish off the trip, he put us on 2 giant Bull Reds. He put us on plenty of fish for an outstanding morning. Thanks Alex

Captain Alex made an audible on the trip the day before to make sure we had the best experience and caught tons of fish. He took us to Baffin Bay even though we had originally signed up for a Port A trip. It was a great call and we caught the limit in no time. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and a great guide!

Captain Alex was fantastic! When the temperature dropped we weren’t really sure the fishing trip would commence. Captain Alex was not phased and happily braved the cold for my very strong willed 13 year old. Thanks to Captain Alex and his knowledge of the bay, the boys brought in some great sized Red Fish and we had a wonderful dinner that night. Great guide! Highly recommend!
