Four of us went on an amazing 5 hour fishing with with Sterling. The fishing that day was not the best but that fishing. I’ve been on many charter type fishing trips across the U.S. and have never seen a Captain work as hard as Sterling to find the fish. We all enjoyed his company and admired his knowledge on fishing the waters of Corpus Cristi. If one is shopping for a good Captain for a fishing trip or to just get out on the water I highly recommend STERLINGS GUIDE SERVICE.
