Great guy, gets you on the fish, treats you like family and made one hell of a friend. It really didn’t seem like we were out there that long. I will return and use Capt. Hines

Captain Kim was great. He taught my son and his friend good technique, put us on the trout, and was fun to be around. I definitely recommend him!

This guy has forgotten more about fishing than the rest of us will ever learn. He shares his fishing concepts & recommends spots for us to try. I’ll use him every time. Maybe he will even let me fish for reds ;).

Captain Hines is the man to book for bay fishing around Rockport, not only did we catch plenty of fish with Hines but also plenty of laughs. Book this trip if you want a laid back guide that has a great sense of humor and knowledge of the area. Mitch ...Read More
