trip description for Wade fishing in Aransas Pass

This trip is wade fishing or drift fishing only with artificial lures. My wade fishing trips are typically a 4-5hr trip for a half day. Clients bring their own rod, reel and waders if needed. I can provide wade boxes and lures. My personal rods are available with a deposit that is non refundable if the reel touches the water. We will start our morning with a short boat ride to a flat or back lake to locate fish. I will help teach you how to attack an area with the wind, structure and how to present the bait to fish. I love to teach new anglers and experienced waders alike. After fishing we will head back in where I will clean your catch for the day if you choose to keep some for dinner. Read More

Growing up in a ranching family that has been in the Victoria, Texas area since the 1870s, James developed early on a deep appreciation for the land and wildlife. His passion for fishing the Gulf coast comes from spending weekends and summers in Rockport, Texas. There he began crafting his fishing skills at age 4 with his father, along the San Antonio Bay system south to Lower Laguna Madre. After attending Southwest Texas University, James obtained his Captain's license in 2005 to share his knowledge and experience on the water with others. In addition to conventional fishing, James has been an avid fly fisherman for 15 years. He has spent time in the Bahamas learning new techniques for fly casting, which he can pass along to fly-fishing clients at any level. His knack for teaching first timers with his carefree, relaxed attitude will make learning to fish a memorable and rewarding experience. Capt. James has been guiding since 2005 and has grown up fishing the Port Aransas and Rockport areas all his life. We will be fishing primarily for Redfish, Trout, Flounder and Black Drum. He uses a wide variety of techniques in order for his clients to have great day on the water. He runs a 25’ Majek Illusion. Kids are more than welcome. Read More

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

    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.
