Captain Larry Bell 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, Capt. 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.

Captain Larry is proud to run Rockport/ Aransas Pass / Port Aransas fishing charters using artificial lures and soft plastics. To him, nothing beats the rush of catching Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and other Texas inshore species on artificial lures like topwater plugs and soft plastics.
Captain Larry will clean and fillet your catch but encourages anglers to release any Speckled Trout over 20" and any Redfish over 24". Larger fish sustain reproduction and Captain Larry is a strong conservationist.
Book a trip to explore miles of Texas inshore coastline from San Antonio Bay up north, to Baffin Bay down south. While always throwing artificial lures, Captain Larry is happy to guide your drift boat fishing or wade fishing experience. For wade fishing trips, please be sure to bring your own waders.
Captain Larry rightfully considers himself lucky to be a professional fishing guide in Texas and loves sharing his passion with others. He's a patient and educational fishing guide who's equally as carefree and easy going as he is passionate about spreading his love of fishing.

Once again, Larry did a superb job! My older brother and I had a great full day on the most beautiful of water. I had a peak experience of my fishing life (some 55 years of fishing) with an early morning catch of two gorgeous red fish while wade fishing along a grassy bank, and then soon after the 2nd catch, having a porpoise appear some 30 yards to my right doing 5 minute display of its own style of aggressive fishing. Wow! Thank you Larry, and thanks for making both our days with you so fun. I especially appreciate how you helped my older brother have a great time in spite of his physical challenge wading.
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.
