My family of 5 had a great time. Early in the trip Capt. Gary spotted a pod of dolphins and pulled the boat in front of them and took off. To our amazement they all followed the boat and rode the wake, swimming fast and jumping. It seemed like they were having fun and we had fun watching. It was a slow fishing day but we did catch several speckled trout. We could have kept more than we did but the state had recently raised the minimum length from 16” to 17” because so many fish had been lost due to the freeze that happened in February. We highly recommend Gary.

Absolute BLAST! Captain Gary is the BEST! Born and raised in the area he can answer all your questions and my girlfriend had a ton of them. Captain Gary was extremely patient with us. We didn’t have a clue what we were doing or needed to be doing. He took us to several places and showed us things we were not even expecting to see. He was the perfect guide on the perfect trip on the perfect day. I HIGHLY recommenend Captain Gary and this fishing experience. Totally unforgettable and still smiling about it two days later. Worth every penny AND the 20 hour round trip drive from Amarillo. Can’t wait to do it again and I promise it will only be with Captain Gary at the helm.

We took my son and a friend out with Capt. Gary for his 10th birthday. Gary was friendly, knowledgeable, patient with the kids (and the adults!), and made sure we caught our limit of speckled trout. We did our best to catch other species once we had our limit of trout, but came up short. It didn’t matter one bit because we all had such a great time and had plenty of fish to show for our efforts. Gary also took us to spot dolphins with our last minutes once we had used all our bait. The boys even enjoyed our time waiting for the catch to be cleaned (by a pair of quick and skilled cleaners) as a group of pelicans and gulls made short work of the leftovers. All in all a great day on the water! We’ll be booking with Capt. Gary again for sure.

We booked this tour for our sons 10th bday. Captain Gary is so friendly and down to earth. He made us so comfortable from the start. As we headed out he pointed out different birds and told a bit about them. He told us of some of the other boats and what their purpose was. He made sure to get us to where we could see the dolphins even! Once we got to fishing he was so knowledgeable and helpful as we hadn’t fished in years and it was our kids’ first time. We all had a great time! My son said he wants to go again but only with Captain Gary….and we will definitely be back!
