About Your Trip

Climb aboard with Captain Brandon Kendrick of Ruffling Feathers Guide Service and learn why Port O’Connor provides some of the most prolific fishing experiences in Texas.

On these 5-hour (half-day) and 8-hour (full day) adventures, Captain Brandon will help you chase Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, and Sheepshead, some of POC’s best fish species. Captain Brandon will let you choose how you want to fish. You can choose between jigging, drifting, or bottom fishing. If you choose to wade fish, make sure you bring waders and wading boots.

For these trips, Captain Brandon uses a 21’ Shoalwater flats boat which can accommodate up to 4 anglers. His boat is equipped with a GPS and a fishfinder - two perfect additions to help reel in those trophy-sized fish.

Make sure to bring a valid Texas Fishing License, a hat, sunscreen, and any food and drinks of your choice (no glass). Ruffling Feathers Guide Service will provide all rods, reels, and tackle. You can purchase live bait and fish cleaning for an additional price.

Learn to fish new techniques and create lasting memories on the water while reeling in your personal best with Captain Brandon and Ruffling Feathers Guide Service!

Captain Brandon was awesome! Our pickup battery died and he took us all over Port O’Connor to get a battery. Then to make it worse Captain Brandon has come down with the shingles. This guy was in pain but he toughed it out and put us on the fish. A guy that will do that shows how much he cares about giving his customers a great experience.

Amazing trip on the water this past weekend. Capt. Brandon was very communicative both before / during / after the trip and made everything extremely easy for this, my first fishing boat charter. This was a trip for my 11yr old daughter and myself and it went great. Brandon put us on fish immediately and had all of the bait/rods ready to go. If at any time the spot of the conditions weren’t optimal, away we went to a new spot. We had an absolute blast and would recommend for families / wives / children. Am interested in coming back for a Blast and Cast to include duck hunting in the future. Would recommend for any situation.
