Captain Jason will customize your trip to your preferences. On your pre-trip call he will advise what has been working recently, but will fish the way you prefer. Fishing out of the boat with cut or live bait for reds, speckled trout or black drum. Drifting the flat with live shrimp under popping corks or lures and soft plastics. Wading shorelines with lures or live bait. It is your trip and wants you to have fun. He fishes primarily for reds, speckled trout and black drum. If you catch a limit of the targeted species or they are simply not bitting, he will always look for feeding fish to catch. His goal is to keep your fishing rods bent and you having fun for the full 6 hours. Typically he launches from Cove Harbor North next to Paradise Key Restaurant. On the pre-trip call launch locations can be changed, depending on the type of trip or bay to be fished. All launch locations changes will be agreed to by both parties on pre-trip call. For parties larger than 4 people he works either several boats to accommodate big parties. Read More

Above and beyond service. highly recommended by me and my father!

Amazing day on the ocean with captain Joe. Captain Joe is a great guy who is very personable and fun to be with. He helped my kids fish the whole time and they each caught a ton of fish.

Roland C. with Alex C. of Port Aransas, Texas
This was our first time fishing in the intercoastal. We had a great time fishing with James. He put us on fish at the first stop and moved us on to the next spot as soon as the action slowed down. He provided quality live bait and showed us effective techniques. He took care of baiting, netting our catch and otherwise took great care of us. James was jovial, easy-going and incredibly patient with us. We had a blast.
Russ S. with James W. of Port Aransas, Texas
The fishing expedition with James in the bay waters of Port Aransas was great. A wonderful time spent for a father and son here on vacation. Look forward to doing this again.

Overall great guide. He definitely put us on the fish. Boat was very nice and clean. Captain is a funny guy.
Jet D. with Alex C. of Port Aransas, Texas
My brother and I took a 4 hr trip for redfish and sea trout. Fishing was slow and catching was slower yet. We did catch enough for a couple of meals. Captain Kevin had good equipment, a clean comfortable boat and gave us 100% effort. Beautiful weather too.
Terry S. with Kevin G. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Captain Sterling was great. He stuck with our group despite the weather being against us! We ended up having a good trip and fun on the boat. He’s very knowledgeable and pleasant to fish with. I would rebook with him next time I go.
Eric T. with Sterling B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Captain Alex was fantastic! When the temperature dropped we weren’t really sure the fishing trip would commence. Captain Alex was not phased and happily braved the cold for my very strong willed 13 year old. Thanks to Captain Alex and his knowledge of the bay, the boys brought in some great sized Red Fish and we had a wonderful dinner that night. Great guide! Highly recommend!
Michelle M. with Alex C. of Port Aransas, Texas
Great experience! Captain Mitch was an excellent guide. 5 star guide and 5 star charter website.
