For these duck hunts on the coastal bend with Captain Brian. You will climb aboard his airboat to be ferried back to one of Brians many well-maintained duck blinds that look over shallow back bays. You're morning will start early around 5:00-5:45 am so you and Captain Brian have enough time to get the decoys out, and set up in the blind before shooting light. You will hunt until around 11am or until you limit out! You can expect to find almost every species of Diver ducks and Puddle ducks, also known as dabbling ducks in the Coastal Bend area. The puddle ducks most commonly found are, Pintail, Gadwall, Wigeon, Shoveler, Blue Wing Teal, Green Wing Teal, Mottled Ducks, and there is even the rare opportunity of seeing a Cinamon Teal! The Diving Duck or Divers we most commonly find here in South Texas are Bufflehead, Greater Scaup, Lessor Scaup, Hooded Merganser, Common Merganser, Canvas Back, and Goldeneye. Clearly the area has such a large selection of Waterfowl. You can also easily find the Black Belly Whistling Tree Ducks. On occasion, you can also find a few Lessor Snow Geese and Speckle Belly Goose or White-fronted Goose . Brian will hunt ducks in Corpus Christi Bay, Nueces Bay, Aransas Bay, Redfish Bay, Copano Bay, and Port Bay. Most of his hunts are by airboat, hunting the shallow water back bays, in duck blinds or on mangrove islands. *Worried about bringing the kids?* If this is their first time to hunt, don’t hesitate. Captain Brian has raised four of his own, the youngest just barely able to write his own name; he understands the patience that is required to take them hunting. It is Captain Brian's philosophy that introducing our youth to the outdoors will ensure the future of our wildlife. It will also teach them the correct way to stay safe and be responsible hunters!

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Excellent guide and excellent experience. We had a successful hunt. The captain experience website, however, was incorrect, it listed morning hunting as an option when this was not accurate. This Did cause some minor inconvenience with planning, travel, overnight stay, etc. that said, we would continue to use the service and same Guide for the same or similar hunts in the future.

    Trip was fantastic and guide did a great job with setting everything up. Crushed the redheads and had a great time. Guide was very fun and helped everyone have a great attitude from the jump

    As a first time duck hunter, I could not have asked for a better guide. He was knowledgeable, professional and made the trip a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend his services!

    Jason S. with Andrew S. of College Station, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Had a blast with Captain Andy. We limited out and he was very helpful and informative to two new waterfowl hunters.

    Stephan W. with Andrew S. of College Station, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    The team was excellent and we had an hugely successful hunt. My husband and I booked this to celebrate our anniversary and although my husband has hunted a lot, this was my first time. The location we were taken to was great, the decoys and the blind were set up perfectly, and our guide (Jesse) was an EXCELLENT caller! NOTE: we were paired with two other hunters (which we were not expecting - and was not communicated beforehand) and although it worked out fine, just something to be aware of.

    Loree F. with Blake E. of Bowie, Texas

    Had a fantastic trip w Cpt Andy today. Very nice mixed bag of Pintail, Gadwall, Canvasback and Redhead. He busted it hard to make sure my Son and I had a successful and memorable hunt! Will be booking again!

    Knowledgeable, on time, great communication

    Dylan B. with Heath B. of Port Aransas, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Trey makes it extremely straightforward for you to get out there. Even on a self-guided trip the decoys are already set up, the blind is brushed, and the Trey is waiting at the ramp in the boat to take you to the blind and pick you up at the end of your hunt. Couldn’t be easier.

    Attison B. with Trey C. of Port Aransas, Texas

    Jason did a great job on our hog hunt!

    Dave took my 8 year old son and I out and we had a great time! He did a good job putting us on some ducks despite less than ideal conditions and even less than ideal shooting by me! Already looking forward to getting back out with him later in the season. See you soon, Dave! -Joe D.

    Joe D. with David R. of Baytown, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Outstanding hunt with a knowledgeable guide! I highly recommend Andy for your next Texas duck hunt!

    Christopher M. with Andrew S. of College Station, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    I HIGHLY recommend Captain Andy for his excellent guiding skills and can-do attitude. Unlike many other Guides, he works with a network of other spotters who watch for birds all across the state. He left his home at midnight and arrived at our shooting location at 1 AM to make sure other eager hunters wouldn't grab his spot. The result was an excellent hunt of mixed bag ducks, sprinkled with humor and education about wingspotting. Five stars is not enough for this Coast Guard certified gent.

    Brooks B. with Andrew S. of College Station, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    I had an absolutely great experience on this trip! Dave went to great lengths to prepare for the trip and make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible. He is a very experienced hunter and got me on a bunch of great shots. He’s got a great boat and access to a bunch of secluded spots. Despite hot weather during early season, we still bagged a few ducks and Dave cleaned them for me at the boat launch. Highly recommend!

    Kevin S. with David R. of Baytown, Texas
