About Your Guide

Captain Caleb has been guiding down on the coastal bend for the last few years. He specializes in Speckled Trout and Redfish during the Spring and summer months and switches gears to duck hunting (and setting up for the season) in the late Fall and Winter months. He still runs fishing trips intermixed and loves the occasional cast and blast.

Caleb's Guide Service Trips

This trip offers a short afternoon getaway on the water to go target speckled trout and Redfish on the flats around Corpus Christi. No matter your skill level, Captain Caleb will lead the way! For these trips, Captain Caleb uses a 23’ Shoalwater center console equipped with a trolling motor, which is perfect for sneaking up on fish that get frightened easily. This vessel can accommodate 4 anglers comfortably and a 5th can usually squeeze on as well, so make sure you bring some good company! Captain Caleb likes to fish a myriad of techniques - throwing live bait and artificials, drifting shell bottoms, and fishing backwaters. It all depends on what the fish are into that day. Make sure you bring a valid Texas fishing license, a pair of sunglasses, food, drinks, and an ice chest for your day’s catch. Captain Caleb will take care of the rest! Read More

Captain Caleb was helpful and professional. Took my son visiting from Washington. We both had a great time.

Verified Review Hunting

Captain Caleb was excellent! He put us on fish almost immediately and anticipated our needs for casting, baiting hooks, and of course, netting the fish. Our eleven-year-old grandson chose this trip because he had never been fishing in salt water before. It was his favorite part of our visit to Corpus. Captain was patient with us and also gave us a few helpful hints to improve our experience. We enjoyed the experience very much!

Caleb was very helpful and a great teacher for the kids. We caught our limit and had a bonus excursion of playing with a dolphin. It was great fun overall!

We had a great experience with Captain Caleb. He was very knowledgeable and put us onto fish right away. Would highly recommend and will definitely be scheduling a trip again soon!

Proactive when fishing. Changed spots when the bite slowed down. Limited out on specks. Wish the black drum cooperated. Had a great time! Definitely calling Caleb again.

Awesome guide! Moved around to get us on the fish. Helped us cast the lines out and offered pointers on what to do when the the fish bites. Very nice! Would go out with him again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the great experience 🙂

Caleb was great with my 7 year old twins. His patience with them was beyond expectations. Our party consisted of 2 adults and 2 kids. His boat was a typical low draft flats boat, that was comfortable and well kept. My wife did not fish and was along for the ride, she said was comfortable. He had a very nice electric motor that we drove along the shore and up to oyster reefs with. We fished with popping corks and live shrimp (new to us Chesapeake Bay anglers). There was plenty of fresh lively bait. He had plenty of rods rigged before hand. All of them were in good shape. He was highly knowledgeable with the local waters, as it could have been very dangerous with all the old oil obstructions and oyster reefs throughout the area. His electronics were brand new (a week old). Our day started out slow, till we found them. We caught 40-50 fish (mostly redfish with 8-10 keepers). We caught 4 different species of fish. Black Drum, flounder, sheepshead, and many red fish. If in the area we absolutely would go again.

Originally scheduled for an afternoon outing, but it changed to morning due to better fishing and cooler weather. Our family had a great time from the minute we got on the boat until we got our cleaned fish. Everyone from our 5 year old to us parents were given any help and assistance we needed and were shown a great time! Knowledgeable and just a great person with huge ambition are the words that come to mind when describing the captain he made the trip a memorable one. Definitely recommend!

Captain Caleb gave my family an amazing first time experience; saltwater fishing. He met us less than 5 minutes from our cottage, and had us in our first spot in less than 20. We did an afternoon, 4 hour+, and we pulled in around 40 fish. My wife and 2 boys (12&14), didn’t fish the entire time, and lost several due to inexperience, or we would have had several more. The moment any of us had our hook out of the water, Captain Caleb had fresh bait ready to go. He would bait, cast and repair line as needed, without request. He was very social, respectful and a 100% pleasure to be around. Any person looking to fish, without the stress of dealing with the issues associated with kids and new anglers, this is the man to hire. As a dad, and typically having to do everything he did, he truly made it a perfect day. Thanks again Captain Caleb, you are loved by the Logan family!

A bit of a rough start. We were catching a lot just little ones. Then it rained for 3 hour had to go back to dock as the weather was BAD. Captain Caleb and his associate were ready as son as the weather broke. And with in the last two hours we limited on Black Drum. Landing 4 nice Reds and 3 Trout. Have already booked our next trip. Even though Mother Nature was not on our side Captain Caleb made it happen. Thank you for a wonderful day. See you soon
