A true Gem of the Texas coast, Baffin Bay offers incredible fishing surrounded by truly sublime nature! Located about an hour's motors away from Clem's Marina in Corpus Christi, the commute is time well spent to fish such an incredible body of water. The commute is even further enhanced with a Captain like Mitch at the helm to keep spirits high with his jokes and jovial personality! Once you get to Baffin, you'll be targeting Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and other species that just don't get the same pressure they do around the rest of the Coastal Bend. This means hungry naive fish, rod-bending action, and happy customers!

Let him know your preference and he will be more than happy to accommodate! Make sure you bring a valid Texas fishing license, food and drinks of your choice (no glass), sunscreen, and a hat.

This self-guided duck hunt is ideal for duck hunters with a little bit of experience under their belt, who want to bag some birds in one of America's best duck habitats. This trip is also a little less pricey than a guided trip, but you'll be shooting from the same places and the hunting is just as good. South Texas is smack in the middle of the Central Flyway, and is a stopover for dozens of migratory waterfowl species. The sheltered bays here draw hundreds of thousands of ducks annually, including Green-Winged and Blue-Winged Teals, Wigeons, Redheads, Pintails, Gadwalls, and Mottled Ducks, and more! You can target all of these species, which are exciting quarries and great eating to boot! On this trip, your outfitter, Captain Mitch will make sure to put you in the perfect spot to nail some inbound waterfowl. He'll provide the blinds and decoys, so all you need to bring is your waders, your guns, and your shells. He'll motor you out to the blind, but once you're out there, he leaves the hunting up to you!

If you are looking to catch fish at any experience level and have a trip to remember, Mitch is an outstanding and friendly guide! He was well prepared, communicated times and location well, and was very knowledgeable of the location and local wildlife. He even fileted and packaged our catch for us. Above and beyond service. highly recommended by me and my father!

5 star guide easy. No we didn’t limit out but you won’t find a guide out there that will put in the time and energy that CAPT Mitch did. He got us on fish and I will go with him exclusively when I go with a guide. He’s that good.

Captain Mitch Deane is one of the best if not the best fishing guides and hunting guides in north padre island and the Laguna Madre area. He has consistently put us on all the fish time and time again with the parties that I bring him

Captain Mitch is fun to hop in the water with. Put us on some fish, explained why we were doing what we were doing, and even pointed out some park-and-wade spots for future trips to Corpus. (Too soon to review his recipes!) Now that the freezer is full of reds we'll be coming back to chase a 30in trout!

Went fishing with Captain Mitch on 10/24 and had a great time. He was very knowledgeable about fishing in both Baffin Bay as well as laguna madre and we caught a good amount of keeper speckled trout and a black drum. We release another good amount of undersized trout !! He was super personable and shared his knowledge of fishing. I would definitely going fishing with him again.

After several successful trips with Mitch I've recommended him to friends and family. None of us has ever been disappointed with the catch or the experience. Mitch works hard to put you onto fish, but he is also the kind of person you like to hang out with. Thumbs up to Mitch as a great fishing guide.

What a blast with Captain Mitch, he’s such a fun guy -wow does he know all the great fishing spots- we had a great day catching trout! We can’t wait to eat it. Now we are starting our sunset cruise with Captain Mitch -can’t think of a better Father’s Day with my love!! Thank you for making his Father’s Day so special and fun!! We can’t wait to do it again!

My father was flying in from Chicago to visit for his birthday so I booked a trip with Capt. Mitch. He put us on a ton of fish, almost every cast we either caught a fish or lost one reeling it in. It was more like catching then fishing. We lost count of how many but I would guess between 70-100. Awesome time and a lot of fun. He shows you how to fish, what to do and everything you need to know. I definitely recommend!
