Took a while because the fish weren't biting, but when they started biting we got our limit in about 15 minutes.

Steven put us on Redfish at the 1st stop. We put 5 large Redfish in the boat within 2 hours. It was a great fishing trip.

My family of four went out with Captain Steven for the morning. My two daughters 7 and 11 both caught fish including a 28 inch red from my 11 year old pulled in. Steven was wonderful at finding the fish, getting everything bait up and helping reel in while letting the girls experience it for themselves as well. We hit a rain storm and he got us through it to the other side of the bay to ensure we could still fish. We can’t wait to go again!

Steven was a great guide. He made the best out of bad weather when we started. We caught lots of BIG fish, which was the goal. Steven was really good with both of our boys- one who knew how to fish and one who didn’t. He was punctual and professional, and if we are ever back in Port A, we will do another fishing trip with Steven for sure! Catching the big one will be something our son will talk about for a very long time.

Wife and I did a five hour trip with Steven. He was waiting when we got to the dock and we left on time. About 15 minutes later we started fishing, moved location once (about a 100 yard move) and continued until we got our limits on Reds. Great boat and gear. Put us on fish and kept us on until we limited out. Don’t know how the trip could have gone any better and we are already planning our next one. Highly recommend Steven’s guide service.

In a word, OUTSTANDING! Why? Steven is very professional, communicates in a timely manner, is calm and patient with his customers, is organized and ready before you get there and he works tirelessly to put you on fish, then makes sure you have someone to clean and bag them when you’re done catching them. We were greeted on time, with the boat in the water, ready to go as soon as we were situated and ready. We had a short ride out in the bay to our first fishing spot, but the fish were not cooperating, so Steven wasted no time moving to find fish. We hit “the honey Hole” and the fish rodeo was on until it was time to return. We limited out right about the time we were scheduled to return to the dock, so we made excellent use of the half day trip. We were very impressed with Steven’s boat and really liked the first class rods and reels he uses. Steven was patient and helpful, making sure we had fresh bait in the strike zone at all times while we were fishing. We had the inevitable line tangles that can happen when you get three fish on the lines at once, but Steven either directed us out of the situation or untangled it quickly if we got fouled up. Steven was calm, professional and humorous throughout the trip. We have fished from Alaska to Costa Rica, but I never knew you could have so much fun fishing from a boat in a foot of water 15 minutes from the dock. I would rate this fishing trip and Captain Steven in my top three and first in “class”. We will be returning to visit our friends in Port Aransas next year and will be booking another trip with Steven for sure. We highly recommend him!
