Captain Brice is an excellent guide who knows his craft. On a very wind day we caught lots of fish. Brice exceeded my expectations by far. Brett C Longview, TX

Bryce is an awesome captain. He has been doing this for a long time and is very knowledgeable. The boat ride, listening to his descriptions of locations, fish, and history of the bay was the best part. The day was super windy and the fish weren't biting but Bryce kept trying different tactics. He drove us to numerous locations to find them and tried different baits so we were able to catch some fish and enjoy them for dinner. It was a really good trip. Thanks Bryce!

Great trip, Captain Brody was excellent, took us directly to some huge black drum and surprised us all with how quickly we all caught one! The we went to a calm spot to catch some keepers and had a great time in the process. Would definitely recommend Brody!

Brody was a great guide. My 11 yr old son had an absolute blast. He put us on fish and was a lot of fun to spend the trip with. I highly recommend!

Limited out! Three of the four people on our recent outing caught their limit of redfish ... and we had to tag two of the big ones. Captain Bryce always provides a great fishing experience, and the weather and tide conditions were in our favor, which was a nice bonus. What impresses us is that Bryce knows where the redfish are hanging out, based on weather, tide conditions, water temperature, etc., and he kept us moving around so we could get the big ones. Another thing we like is that he doesn't limit our time on the water -- we fished for a full 8 hours. What a blast! We'll be back, for sure.

Another success! We went out with Captain Bryce for a second time and went home with nice keepers -- 3 redfish and a black drum. And it wasn't easy -- a strong cold front had blown in the day before, the day was foggy and cloudy, and the tide was super-high, about 2' -- so Bryce worked really hard to find the fish. But he managed to do just that. We caught a couple here and there (even a little flounder -- so cute), but the action wasn't steady, so we moved around a lot. What really impressed us is (1) Bryce wasn't about to give up, and (2) he knows the area well enough to set a winning course. He decided to check out an area he usually doesn't go in to (it kind of looked looked like a pond nestled in among the flats) because typically the water back there is way too shallow. But because the tide was so high, and the water was warmer, he found where everybody had been hanging out. We pulled in several small redfish (and a couple of keepers) with pretty much every cast. Also, Captain Bryce is a good fit for us; he can carry a conversation, but he's not too chatty. He is always on point -- keeping fresh bait on our hooks and an extra line in the water. Overall a great day -- we had fun and went home with fish -- so rewarding.

Captain David was a great guide. It was my wife's first chartered fishing trip and David made her feel comfortable and excited to be catching her first reds. He was knowledgeable in the fishing spots and encouraged us to be patient. We ended up taking 7 reds home. It was a great experience and we will definitely be seeking out David next time we want to go out.

Things went well for fishing it's not called catching! Bryce spent all day giving everything he has to offer to put us on Reds, nice job.

We really enjoyed our experience with Captain Bryce and have already booked another outing with him. Good boat, good gear, very organized, very knowledgeable; he kept the poles constantly loaded up with live bait, and we always had an extra pole in the water, too. When we got to the first spot to fish, Capt. Bryce casually baited a hook and threw out the first line for us. He got a hit before he could finish his sentence and hand the pole to one of us, which we all thought was pretty funny. The fishing was mostly steady from that point on; we caught a lot of smaller redfish (I lost count) and a couple of black drum (one was the right size but spit out the hook as he got to the boat -- aaargh!). We went home happy for such a great day on the water and satisfied with two keeper redfish (22" and 24"). We particularly appreciated that Captain Bryce doesn't have a strict time limit for his trips. We spent 7 hours in glorious weather in various spots, and both of our keeper fish would have been missed had we been hauled back to shore strictly at the 4-hour point.
