Guided by Benny Judice
Captain Benny has fished the waters surrounding Port O Connor Texas for over 30 years. He's very easy going and prefers to fish with the music bumping, fish jumping, and ice cold beer flowing.
While he is a full-time guide enjoying the retired life, his #1 goal is to catch fish, and he loves to have fun while doing it.
Book a trip with Captain Benny to share in his contagious passion for fishing.
Captain Benny will show you why Port O’Connor has some of the best fishing in Texas! You will spend the day aboard his 26 ft center console powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine. This boat can reach a cruising speed of almost 40 knots, so you’ll be out on the water in no time! She also has a T-top to keep you shaded throughout the day. Captain Benny will help you target Red Snapper (depending on the season), Kingfish, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, Blacktip Shark, and many other species on your 4-hour (half-day) or 8-hour (full day) adventure. Anglers of all skill levels and ages are welcome on these trips. Captain Benny has life jackets on board but recommends that, if you have children, you bring your own life jackets for maximum comfort. Captain Benny will provide all rods, reels, and tackle. All you need to bring is a valid Texas saltwater fishing license, a cooler for your day’s catch, a hat, and sunscreen. Come visit Port O’Connor and have a blast on the water with Captain Benny!

We had an awesome fishing experience with Captain Benny. After a very short boat ride, Benny hooked us up on huge bull reds. We ending up boating several slot reda and10 oversized reds and fighting several more that broke our lines close to the boat. We also caught some mangrove snapper black drum, sheepshead ,lady fish and a few other species …
This is my second time to use Captain Benny and both times did not disappoint. He was communicative up to the day of the trip helping me plan appropriately. He is always punctual, friendly, and informative. This recent trip was my children’s first time, he was amazing at engaging with them to keep their interest up. They had a blast! But most importantly, we caught fish! Both trips did not disappoint. I know you can’t guarantee always catching fish but with Benny’s local knowledge and overall expertise we’re a perfect 2 for 2! Thank you for the great memories for my family. Definitely would rebook with Captain Benny!!! …
Great trip, great fishing, and a great guide.
Caught our limits both days. Grandson caught a 37 inch Big Red.
Had an amazing trip, Captain Benny really knows the area as well as the timing of the day. He took his time to make sure a newbie got the best experience ever! Thank you captain
Enjoyed our morning fish with Benny! He met us at the bait shop on our way into town to help purchase the accurate licenses, and then picked us up directly from our hotel (Clark’s) the next morning to get after it early. The fish weren’t biting as much as we’d liked early on, but Benny worked hard with his fellow guides to keep each other informed and move to where the action was. We eventually caught a lot but the majority were too big or too small…no matter, we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our fishing! BTW Benny recommends not bringing bananas when fishing (bad luck?!)… now we know. :) …
Our hopes for this charter were to get the chance to reel in a huge fish and to fill the freezer back home, and well, we got more than we hoped for to say the least! The boat was spacious, clean, and safe for our 10 year old son to come along. Captain Benny started us off in a great spot where we were catching fish as soon as we dropped our lines in the water. Maybe that was a warm up because after that he took us to a different spot where we had the experience of a lifetime! Captain Benny worked hard to put us right on top of giant Red Drum where our entire family easily tagged out! Well, I say easy but trust me, pulling in a fish that big was not easy!! Luckily Captain Benny was right there for anything we needed. We were so grateful to be with a guide who made it his mission to give us the experience we were looking for and on top of that he clearly knew all the best spots, had a great attitude, was patient and straight forward with us, and was a pleasure to be around. Thank you for the trip Captain Benny. We will be seeing you again! …
