Great trip with Captain Shannon! He found the big Redfish this morning. The boat was clean and ready to go as scheduled. I took home a limit of Redfish and released many more. I recommend this guide to anyone looking for a great time fishing!

We went fishing with Shanon on May 10th from 1-6. We caught several trout, whiting, catfish and a couple sharks. All the big fish seemed to hide from us. However we had a lot not make it into the boat because they jumped off our lines and even broke a couple lines with potentially big fish. Overall it was a great time with my daughters and my buddy and his son. Shannon did a great job.

This was an amazing fishing charter literally one of the best many I have been on. Captain Shannon is very knowledgeable and informative. He not only put us on the fish but he was able to answer all of the questions we had about the local fish and how to catch them. I highly recommend him to any beginner or novice fisherman. He’s was very polite and out spoken and as far of the cost it was beyond reasonable. His tackle was top notch his boat very clean and well maintained. We left very pleased. Thank you Captain Shannon.

We had the BEST time fishing with Shannon! We had 3 kids and 3 adults and just had a ball reeling in some monsters! The kids were pulling in fish bigger than they were!!! Shannon was so good with them and made sure everyone was well taken care of, got good pictures, learned a bit about angling (and anything else ocean related they could think of to ask) and was so patient. I would absolutely recommend Shannon to anyone looking to book a charter and hope to do so again myself soon! In the words of my 9 year old “That was amazing!!! This guy needs way more than 5 ⭐️ “ I’d say he had a good time! Thanks for a great day, Captain- you’ll never know how much it meant to us 🐠 -M.Forrest Houston, Tx
