Guided by Buddy Cortines
Captain Buddy has fished the Rockport and Aransas areas since he was able to hold a rod. Because of the adventurous trips he enjoyed with his parents and grandpa, Buddy’s passion for fishing has grown into a lifelong dream of becoming a fishing guide. Over the years, he has gained knowledge about the habitat, water conditions, and how to adjust his fishing strategies during different weather patterns. Buddy is dedicated to fishing and loves waking up knowing he gets to share his love for the sport with his clients. Not only will you catch fish, but you'll also learn why you're catching them, so you can leave the trip a better angler than when you started. Get out there and set some hooks!

Buddy took us out and did an excellent job. We had a great time and Buddy is definitely entertaining or at least he thinks so! lol jk
My family and I had a great day with Buddy. We caught some nice fish and never stopped laughing. Buddy worked very hard to get us on some fish all day long. His boat and equipment were all in excellent condition. Can’t wait to come back again! …
Excellent customer service. Great guide for fishing. I highly suggest Buddy as your guide with a 5 star. If you really want someone to take you fishing to the right places, Buddy is your man.
