About Your Guide

Captain Ryan started fishing in the bay as a boy, and has loved it ever since. He enjoys being with people on the bay and showing them the techniques that he use to catch monster fish. Although Ryan uses a variety of techniques, he prefer sight-fishing in the clear water and poling his clients up to tailing Reds. It's always great to see my clients catch their first fish! Fishing is something that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated!

Ryan also has years of experience running wingshooting trips in the US and in Mexico, including eight yearsin Mexican bird lodges. If you're looking for a great hunt, Ryan is your man!

South Padre Outfitters Trips

Head out with one of the premier duck guides in South Texas in Captain Ryan Falls. His normal bag consists of: redhead, pintails, teal, widgeon, blue bills, gadwall, and much more, with occasional goose in the mix as well. Trips include decoys, blinds, waders, retrievers and bird cleaning as well. You will ride out to the blind aboard Ryan's air boat. The all-terrain vessel can take you back into the shallowest of water or even cut across marshland so he can drop you straight at the blind. Beyond a myriads of blinds set up across the South Texas coast, Ryan also has two pontoon boats outfitted as mobile duck blinds as well. He'll often bring his stove along too so you can enjoy some hot breakfast while you hunt. (and during the cold months: huddle by it for warmth as well!) Make sure to bring your own Texas hunting license and duck stamp, eye protection (amber polarized fishing glasses recommended), and food and drinks. Arrangements will be made for pick up location. Trips are chartered out of Arroyo City and Port Mansfield Enjoy the wildlife in the bay. See wildlife in their natural habitat, and possibly an alligator! Go places no other boat can go. The experience of riding an airboat is like no other! Read More

If you've been looking for a true South Texas classic, this guided fishing trip might just be perfect. Captain Ryan has been fishing here for decades, and knows all the honey holes and backwater hotspots in this maze of inshore flats and channels. On this trip, you'll get out there aboard his 24' Dargel bay boat, powered by a 250-horsepower Evinrude outboard. She has a shallow draft to give you access to even the "skinniest" water, and enough kick to get you out there in no time. On board, she's kitted out with a live well, ice box, GPS, fishfinder, and more! You'll be chasing inshore species such as Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and Mangrove Snapper. These fish are all great eating, and Captain Ryan will clean your keepers back at the dock. He provides all the necessary equipment and gear, so all you need to bring is proper clothing, sun protection, and a pair of sunglasses—preferably polarized. Get out there and catch 'em up!
