    Great day on the water. Some nices Reds, the others were not so cooperative. Heath did an excellent job of putting me where the fish were.

    Took a while because the fish weren't biting, but when they started biting we got our limit in about 15 minutes.

    We did not have a good experience. The seas were very rough, we got sea sick, completely drenched and my husband fell out of his wheelchair when the boat hit a big wave at about mile 13 or 14. He was stayed seated on the floor of the boat as we attempted to continue out. After about 1.5 hours, we were less than 20 miles out, we decided to ask the captain to turn around.

    We had a great day. We limited out in less than 2 hours and to finish off the trip, he put us on 2 giant Bull Reds. He put us on plenty of fish for an outstanding morning. Thanks Alex

    Randy is a local expert. Knows all the good fishing holes and got us on fish early. Would definitely use him again. Highly recommend.

    Great trip with James (AKA Grandpa) seas were a little rough but that's too be expected. Had a Member of our group get very ill and not only was James's first thought his safety but we cut our trip short and he even discounted the fees. Very thankful and will use them again. I can't put the review in and not mention Daryl, his mate, as well. To notch crew!!

    Captain Alex was a great captain and host. Alex went above and beyond to make sure we went home with fish and have a great experience. Very instructive and helpful while fishing. Overall was a great experience and time.

    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.

    Fishing was slow. But Capt. James worked hard to give us a great fishing trip.

    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.

    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.
