Having fished the waters surrounding Port Isabel for over twenty five years, Captain Ruben knows these waters like the back of his hand. His boat is one of the biggest fishing boats in the area with an extremely powerful engine, which means you have a plethora of fishing options.
Reuben was a very nice guy, but his view of guiding clients needs to change, l guess he fishes only go reds and specks. We only fished shipping channels with croakers on bottom. We caught a few specks, no redfish and spent most of the time cleaning seaweed off line. ...Read More I mentioned to him I wanted to catch reds and mangrove snapper in the beginning. The only bait we had was croaker and I have been fishing the island many years and several other guides and we always caught a lot of the snapper, specks and redfish. He may be a good fisherman but having clients catch a lot of fish is the most important thing or at least trying, we did not, used only one type of bait, one location just different parts of it spaced out a little. I would have rather traveled 10 more miles and caught no more fish than staying in the same place catching gafftops and few specs mixed in, boring morning and in his defense we would have had a few more keepers maybe 4 or 5 if they had not raised length limit from 15 to 17”. We wound up the day with 3 keeper trout out of group of 4 on boat. Should have paid more attention to other review. Sorry will not.be using this service again
Ruben was a nice enough guy, but I hire guides to put us on fish. He did not. At least not the fish we asked to target. He put us on a lot of Hard heads ie catfish. Pretty disappointed in his guiding skills to be honest. We live on ...Read More the island and know most guides. Everyone we know brought in limits of reds and trout that day! Nice boat but in the end we pay for results of which he failed. Won't be using him again.
It was so much fun, Ruben was great 👍
