About Your Trip

Captain Larry knows how to get you on trout and redfish in Copano and Mesquite bay! He likes to fish the grassy flats and back lakes using topwater baits, Wake baits, and Downsouth lures to find your fish. He likes to wade and drift these flats and backwater lakes so whatever suits your fancy, Captain Larry can make it happen. Casting and retrieving these artificials is a lot of fun and makes each strike that much more exciting! This area holds trophy trout in the 3-5ft range and redfish around the 3ft range, and these big fish can't resist the temptation to whack a shiny twitching artificial that enters their territory.

Larry called us the day before to check in. He offered to pick us up in Port A, which was more convenient than getting to Aransas Pass. He was a knowledgeable and friendly guide. I would use him again.

Superb guide! We really enjoyed the fishing. Larry is a very experienced and skilled guide, a great fisherman himself and an exceptionally nice person. We booked for another full day with him already.

Larry is a fun guy to fish with. We had a bunch of questions he answered everything. He was very informative about fishing, boats and the area. Very windy day, we fished until we had had enough. It was a slow day.
