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.
Clint W. with Adam M. of Port O'Connor, Texas
Capt Jon was great! He agreed to go out, even though it was so windy and cold and made sure we had a fun time, even if we didn’t expect to have much luck given the conditions. We were victorious over the gulls however and got several great fish!
Elizabeth S. with Jon P. of Port O'Connor, Texas
Captain Pat Lester; 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 Lester 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
Jennifer G. with Pat L. of Port O'Connor, Texas

Ron was on time and waiting in the water for us. He was personable and readily shared information about the waters and area. We tried about six locations trying to get on fish. Our target fish were too elusive this day. Enjoyed boating and being on the water .though.
Travis H. with Ross K. of Port O'Connor, Texas
We had such a great time with Pat! We took our two boys 12 & 14 and Pat was so great with them! It was such a fun experience for our family and we will definitely be back to fish with Pat again soon!
