About Your Guide

Captain Joe wass born in Corpus Christi where he spent his summers fishing with his grandparents in and around Port Aransas. He started commercial fishing for flounder, drum and sheepshead in the mid-1990s, working in a fish house cutting and delivering fish shrimp crabs and the like to restaurants throughout the coastal bend. Now, he is a full-time flounder guide who knows the waters, habits, and migration patterns of flounder very well. You can find him out on the water catching fish every month of the year except November which is closed from gigging.

We had a great time out! Unfortunately, we didn’t catch anything but it wasn’t due to a lack of effort. He was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to be around. We will definitely be planning another trip out.

Couldn’t have been happier with my flounder gigging trip with captain Joe. This was my second trip out with him and it was just as fun as the first.
