    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.

    Captain Pat; first impressions- prompt, on time and ready for the day’s fishing. Equipment was prepared and ready for use, boat was clean, well maintained. The man was energetic, dedicated to getting his “guests “ on redfish. Captain Pat was amicable and obvious good standing with his fellow boat captains due to their witty good natured exchanges. On the bay and bayou he was very chatty, told good fishing tales and was always quick to assist with bait, casting and netting the fish. During our expedition a boater needed assistance and he was able to assist the boat, assist getting the boat’s guest getting onto a new charter and professional that he is coordinating with another boat captain and got us into a “hot spot” of redfish, limiting out. Captain Pat receives high praise and hearty endorsement from my family. He definitely knows the Matagorda Bay Area and was witnessed being a resource to his fellow charter boat captains. Captain Pat, “Respect” and Thank you. The Gould’s, Jen & Cris
