Captain Gabe was very kind, patient and accommodating. He chartered our group of 4. Two couples. I personally have not fished in about 12 years. He was very patient in teaching me to use a rod and reel, coached me through it all. I caught the first keeper of the day and the largest. We had a great full day fishing and caught lots of fish mostly trout. He worked really hard to get us to the best fishing spots. We had fun, caught lots of fish and made some great memories. I can’t wait to do it again. I highly recommend using Captain Gabe with CL Fishing Private Charters. I promise you will be happy you did.
Outstanding fishing experience with Captain Gabe. His experience and enthusiasm helped my father and I catch many fish to include a 40 inch bull Redfish towards the end of our trip. He knew all the right areas and did a great job finding us some great spots. Will definitely continue to book captain Gabe when fishing near Port Aransas. Thank you Captain Gabe!
My wife and I wanted to have a good morning on the water, and Capt Gabe took us out for a great time! We caught some nice trout, my wife caught her first (two) redfish, and we came out with a nice bag of fish to take home. Very friendly and always a great conversation had. Highly recommend for a good time out, we’ll be back!
