Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
Larry is the man! Great at teaching the “why” of fishing and helping you learn some new tips and tricks. It doesn’t hurt that we caught a ton of redfish and trout as well. If you want to catch fish on artificials, this is your guy.
Attison B. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Went out with Cpt. Jeff's guide Cpt. Gibson. Had an absolute blast. Couldn't recommend this group enough. Put us on some great fish and Cpt. Gibson had a great attitude. You won't be disappointed. First time using Captain Experience's and was very impressed with their communication and responsiveness. Will definitely book with them again.
Baker W. with Jeff J. of Rockport, Texas
We had a great trip Captain Jason Molitr! He has a great attitude and he strives to make sure he takes care of his customers.
Kenneth A. with Jason M. of Rockport, Texas
Super fun trip, caught lots of fish and got to learn all about the area and different types of fish from the guide
Ryan S. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, 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.
Randal P. with James W. of Port Aransas, Texas
Went out during the busiest holiday time of each year in coastal bend, had a warm but nice day on the water. Capt. LL worked multiple spots to get us on keeper fish but we were coming in just under the slot multiple times. The smarter, older fish took off for the 4th of July. Guide worked as hard as he could and helpful as possible. Would go again with LL and bet would be more successful. "A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work!"
Stephen D. with LL B. of Rockport, Texas
James was a great Captain for our half day morning adventure! He was able to accommodate the entire group finding us a second guide. We are very appreciative for him and his partner getting us out on the water on such a busy weekend.
Angel P. with James W. of Port Aransas, Texas
The boys had a good time, they mentioned it was right after a large tournament so it was a little slow on the fishing but they had a good time .
Gustavo V. with Randy S. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Larry, was punctual, knowledgable and nice to spend a half day with fishing out of Aransas Pass. I'd recommend him.
Jack W. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Capt. Larry is a true professional. He quickly developed realistic expectation and promptly delivered and then some. My two teenagers and I showed up never having done anything like this before. Capt. Larry explained that conditions were not ideal, but we should still catch a few. First thing took us to a proven spot, it took a little bit, but my 13-year-old daughter picked up a couple in the first 3-+- minutes. Larry knew immediately what was going on with the fish and put us all in position, we stayed pretty much in the same spot for the rest of the day and did very well. All we caught wee Redfish; we caught several in the 5.5#+ class. We had a great day. Or second day was a good day as well, each of us caught enough fish to feel like we knew what we were doing. Larry has a great way about him to make you feel comfortable and is very capable. We will come back again as long as we can fish with him. MT
Mark T. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
This was one of the best things I ever booked. This was a surprise for my boyfriend and he had an awesome time. I came into this with very limited knowledge of fishing and left extremely confident in the fishing skills Larry had taught me. We each caught one fish, however that’s because we saw dolphins!!! I told Larry I really would like to see more dolphins and man he delivered!! Dolphins swam straight up to the boat it was amazing to see them in their natural habitat. Larry was very interested in what WE wanted to do and he was an amazing guide. I will for sure be bringing my father in law back to fish with Larry. 100% recommend!!!
Mattie P. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Everything went well and I had a lot of fun. Larry explained that the February freeze kinda depleted much of the population of fish and the Park Game & Wildlife had to get stricter on being able to keep the fish now. But I still had lots of fun.
Steve C. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
First time doing a fishing trip. Captain Larry was very welcoming. He sent me reminders the day before the trip and called me to talk about how the trip would go, suggestions, and questions I had. He was very informational with showing me the basics of fishing and I learned to cast perfectly. Ended up catching a few fish!
Denny R. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Captain Larry was great at teaching us how to wade fish and fish with lures instead of live bait. He was very patient with the kids and we all caught fish! It was a great trip overall.
Sandra S. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Capt. Randy was fantastic. He put us on some great fish while others were striking out.
Andrew M. with Randy S. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Booked a trip with Capt. Larry and had a great time on the water. He put me on fish at every spot we went to. He explained the what and why for everything we were doing and definitely turned it into one big learning experience. I would definitely recommend him as a guide and I will be using him again for future trips.

Larry is a great guy and we had a lot of fun.
Al Z. with Larry B. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Had a great day with Larry and my three new friends. Caught a few fish to top it off. Larry was very helpful and knowledgeable. He did not just tell you where to fish and how but explained why.
