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 30 inch range and bigtime redfish, and these big fish can't resist the temptation to whack a shiny twitching artificial lure that enters their territory.

We didn't have the best experience. Part of this is probably our fault. We were not aware that we would be hopping off the boat and wade fishing in the middle of the ocean. When I hear wade fishing I envision closer to the shore. We didn't take the right ...Read More

Captain Larry was great at teaching us how to wade fish and fish with lures instead of live bait. He was very patient with the kids and we all caught fish! It was a great trip overall.
