    Captain Steve is the best. Knows so much about fishing in general and the area in specific. We didn’t catch many today but we had an excellent experience anyway. Can’t wait to head out with him again.

    Calvin S. with Brandon M. of Galveston, Texas

    Captain Ron was very pleasant and worked hard to put us on fish. Unfortunately, the fish were hard to come by today. Tough weather conditions made for a challenging day. I would like to go out with him again.

    Tom W. with Ron R. of Matagorda, Texas

    My son and I went out with Rueben and had a great time. It was a windy day and the fish weren’t initially biting but he took us to a bunch of different spots and we hauled in a few redfish. He was a great role model for my son who wants to be a fishing guide someday. Would definitely go out with him again.

    We had a great time on this Trip, the captain and crew were 10/10.

    Doug is a phenomenal guide! He quickly made us feel like family. Fishing was supposed to be hard, but everywhere he took us, we caught fish. The only problem we had was he helped the women catch the biggest catch LOL! Thank you for a great time!

    Rodney J. with Doug H. of Port O'Connor, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Great trip Justin got us limited out and it was a beautiful morning on the water

    Jeffrey A. with Justin M. of Port Aransas, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    What an outstanding time that we had with Captain Mike. This was our very first time boat fishing and we had done so at the request of my son for his 17th birthday. Captain Mike was incredibly accommodating, very easy to communicate with and more importantly knowledgeable when it comes to fishing. He was incredibly patient, taught each person in our group of four how to properly cast and really made sure that we had a good time (and also made sure we caught our limit, I have no doubt he would have stayed out there all day to make it happen.) I'm new at this but I am sure this is the type of experience you hope for with this sort of activity. Book this gut y'all. I PROMISE you that you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Captain Mike for a memorable experience!!!!!

    Joshua C. with Mike K. of South Padre Island, Texas
