    It was a good trip. We went inshore fishing. Captain Adam put us on some Black Drum and some Reds. We only caught 9 fish that we could keep. We caught a lot of fish but the majority were under size. It was a real good time fishing C.W.

    We had an excellent experience with Captain Burke. He knew exactly where to go and catch the fish. My son had a great time and I would definitely recommend Captain Burke and captain experiences.

    Captain Reyes did an outstanding job. My son and I had planned to meet him in Matagorda and fish East Matagorda Bay. A few days before the trip, he texted suggesting that we meet him in Palacios and fish West Matagorda Bay because he’d had several days of good catches there. We agreed and had a great day on the water. We caught our limit of speckled trout and had a good haul of black drum. He was very attentive and hardworking. I highly recommend him.

    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.

    Unfortunately the fishing part wasn’t successful but not for a lack of captain John trying everything to put us on fish. He was a blast to talk with and we still had a great time even though the fish weren’t cooperative. Would definitely go out with captain John in future

    Great guide! We had a wonderful time, nearly limited out. Arturo moved us to a few different spots, ended up on the edge of a channel on a pretty hot spot. Caught a lot of near keepers and a few extra species as well. Great trip, a lot of fun and will definitely use Arturo again!

    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 .
