Brian's charter is a full-service outfitter. They are located in Ingleside, Texas near Aransas Pass and Rockport. Just a short ferry ride from Port Aransas and maybe a 20-minute drive from Corpus Christi. Captain Brian likes to think they are smack dab in the middle of heaven! Captain Brian started professionally guiding right out of college 1991 in Gilchrist, Texas. He moved to the Coastal Bend in 1993, and began his guide service and taxidermy business.

Captain Brian also runs Cast and Blast trips when duck season is in. Give us a call for pricing on these epic adventures whacking quackers and slaying giant reds all in the same morning!

Aggie Guide Service Trips

Head out with Captain Brian to explore the Coastal Bend waters with a seasoned professional. Captain Brian guides in the Ingleside, Aransas Pass, Rockport, Port Aransas, and Corpus Christi areas. He is especially adept at fishing the Corpus Christi Bay, Nueces Bay, Aransas Bay, and Redfish Bay. On your trip, your main focus will be Spotted Sea Trout, Redfish Drum, Flounder and Black Drum. No matter what kind of bay fish you want to chase, his 23' Haynie Bigfoot will get you there in style. Captain Brian offers full-day fishing trips for up to 5 adults. Kids are always welcome to fish with you and can occasionally be included as a 6th guest if they are small enough (~12 or younger). These full-day trips with Captain Brain start at 6 am and run until you either catch your limit or it gets to be about 12-1pm. Time is not as much of a constraint for Captain Brian, he just wants you to have a great time! Captain Brian will provide all the rods, reels, tackle, bait, and expertise you could possibly need for a fantastic day out on the water. That way all you'll need to bring is your sun protection, your favorite snacks and drinks, and your Texas fishing license. Captain Brian will take care of the rest! Read More

Bay Fishing Trip - 23’ Haynie

23 ft 1 - 5 People From $140 / person

For these Cast and Blast trips, Captain Brian offers a duck hunt in the morning followed up with fishing in the afternoon. You will more often than not take the airboat out in the morning to sneak back to one of Brians many well-maintained duck blinds that look over shallow back bays. You're morning will start early around 5:45-6:00am so you and Captain brian have enough time to get the decoys out, and set up in the blind before shooting light. You will hunt until around 10:00am and head back in for lunch. For the afternoon you will switch over to his bay boat to either float the bays and chase trout, redfish, and drum, or sneak around the back bays in his airboat sight fishing! You can expect to find almost every species of Diver ducks and Puddle ducks, also known as dabbling ducks in the Coastal Bend area. The puddle ducks we most commonly find are, Pintail, Gadwall, Widgeon, Shoveler, Blue Wing Teal, Green Wing Teal, Cinnamon Teal and Black Duck or also known as Mottled Duck. The Diving Duck or Divers we most commonly find here in South Texas are Bufflehead, Greater Scaup, Lessor Scaup, Hooded Merganser, Common Merganser, Canvas Back, and Goldeneye. We have such a large selection of Waterfowl. You can also easily find the Black Belly Whistling Tree Ducks. On occasion, you can also find a few Lessor Snow Geese and Speckle Belly Goose or White-fronted Goose . Brian will hunt ducks in Corpus Christi Bay, Nueces Bay, Aransas Bay, Redfish Bay, Copano Bay, and Port Bay. Most of his hunts are by airboat, hunting the shallow water back bays, in duck blinds or on mangrove islands. *Worried about bringing the kids?* If this is their first time to hunt, don’t hesitate. Captain Brian has raised four of his own, the youngest just barely able to write his own name; he understands the patience that is required to take them hunting. It is Captain Brian's philosophy that introducing our youth to the outdoors will ensure the future of our wildlife. It will also teach them the correct way to stay safe and be responsible hunters!

We had an excellent trip w/ Captain Brian. Fishing conditions were very challenging due to the wind. He was able to put us on a few keepers. Brian is an extremely knowledgeable guide and personable as well. We will definitely fish w/ him again.

We had a great time with Brian. Caught 17 we were able to bring back, and more than double that for the ones we had to throw back. We had 3 adults and 2 kids on the trip….would highly recommend.

I believe Brian did a great job. The fishing conditions were terrible, but we gay half a limit. I believe with good conditions, we would have done great!

Captain Brian did an amazing job. We caught the heck out of some trout. Sadly it just wasn’t our day for redfish or black drum. He did a great job at helping our kids learn how to bay fish which is different from bass fishing. He was patient with everyone and super helpful. Highly recommend calling on captain Brian if your interested in a guide and have kiddos.

I knew when I got to Aransas Pass on Thursday and seen the high water still there from the storm surge that Friday’s trip was going to be a challenge but captain Brian still put us on some specs and reds maybe not limits but it was still a good trip. Thanks Brian and I hope things work in your favor
