For these duck hunts on the coastal bend with Captain Brian. You will climb aboard his airboat to be ferried back to one of Brians many well-maintained duck blinds that look over shallow back bays. You're morning will start early around 5:00-5:45 am so you and Captain Brian have enough time to get the decoys out, and set up in the blind before shooting light. You will hunt until around 11am or until you limit out!...Read More
You can expect to find almost every species of Diver ducks and Puddle ducks, also known as dabbling ducks in the Coastal Bend area. The puddle ducks most commonly found are, Pintail, Gadwall, Wigeon, Shoveler, Blue Wing Teal, Green Wing Teal, Mottled Ducks, and there is even the rare opportunity of seeing a Cinamon Teal! The Diving Duck or Divers we most commonly find here in South Texas are Bufflehead, Greater Scaup, Lessor Scaup, Hooded Merganser, Common Merganser, Canvas Back, and Goldeneye. Clearly the area has such a large selection of Waterfowl. You can also easily find the Black Belly Whistling Tree Ducks. On occasion, you can also find a few Lessor Snow Geese and Speckle Belly Goose or White-fronted Goose .
Brian will hunt ducks in Corpus Christi Bay, Nueces Bay, Aransas Bay, Redfish Bay, Copano Bay, and Port Bay. Most of his hunts are by airboat, hunting the shallow water back bays, in duck blinds or on mangrove islands.
Worried about bringing the kids? If this is their first time to hunt, don’t hesitate. Captain Brian has raised four of his own, the youngest just barely able to write his own name; he understands the patience that is required to take them hunting. It is Captain Brian's philosophy that introducing our youth to the outdoors will ensure the future of our wildlife. It will also teach them the correct way to stay safe and be responsible hunters!
His charter is a full-service outfitter. They are located in Ingleside, Texas near Aransas Pass and Rockport. Just a short ferry ride from Port Aransas and maybe a 20-minute drive from Corpus Christi. Captain Brian likes to think they are smack dab in the middle of heaven! Captain Brian started professionally guiding right out of college 1991 in Gilchrist, Texas. He moved to the Coastal Bend in 1993, and began his guide service and taxidermy business....Read More
