My nephew and I went out with Captain Mike Knox on Jan 27th, 2024. Captain Mike was very approachable and personable with his introduction. He set up some rigs before we left the pier which only took a few minutes. His boat is a very comfortable and nicely setup. When we arrived at the fishing location Captain Mike was very informative on what to do and how to do it. He is very patient and informative. We set up a 5-hour trip but had our limits of Red Drum and Speckled Trout in only 3 hours of fishing time. He knew exactly where to go and what to do. When we arrived back at the pier there was a very kind gentleman waiting to clean our fish for us. He will clean them any you want them. I give Captain Mike a solid 5-star review and I will return to fish with him again in the future. THANK YOU, CAPTAIN MIKE KNOX, for a fantastic time.

During our trip, Captain Mike consistently put us on fish in multiple situations despite what I would consider fairly difficult weather conditions. He did a great job with my 12-year old son, who happily landed his first ever slot red, along with several other nice trout and redfish. We would definitely love to fish with Captain Mike again!

My son and I took a recent trip to South Padre July 5-9 and although it rained most of the time ( and flooded ) it was saved by the most AWESOME fishing experience we have EVER had !!! Mike was not only patient, but he watched the weather radar and picked the BEST time to head out. We never got wet !! The conditions were perfect and the catching was even BETTER. Mike knew exactly where to go and there they were !!! We caught our limit and it TASTED even better !! Thanks Mike ! We will be back !!

Great time with Captain Mike. We went out on a very windy day so the fishing was a little rough but Captain Mike worked hard to get us on the fish.



Great guide! Puts my two sons and myself on fish more than any guide I’ve ever used. Great with kids and adults.
