Climb aboard with Captain Blaze Sparks and experience the thrill of some seriously top-notch shallow water fishing! Except for the ship channels, the water is no more than 6’ deep, making it a great fishery for families and novice anglers who would like to avoid choppy waters.
Capt. Blaze will guide you to some inshore and nearshore spots that will allow you to try your hand at bottom fishing. The species you can expect to target using this technique are Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Flounder.
For these trips, Captain Blaze uses his 24’ Cougar Marine flats boat, which can host 6 anglers. Depending on the trip, between 4 and 6 of them can fish at the same time.
Make sure to bring a valid Texas Fishing License as well as food and drinks of your choice. Other than that, Captain Blaze will provide the rest. He will provide all lures, rods, reels, and tackle.
Bring your kids or your angling buddies and head out to a fishing adventure to remember with Captain Blaze!

Blaze was fantastic! We made a last minute trip to the coast and Blaze made it worth it! I was a professional fishing guide for 12 years and I’ve seen all kinds of guides. So many guides have become “salty” and rude. Not Blaze. He had a genuine love of fishing and he treated us like clients, not like a paycheck. He handled himself well and was very personable. It isn’t often that I fish with someone and recommend them. I’m pretty good at picking apart a guide because I know the business so well, but I have absolutely no complaints about Blaze. Only compliments. Great guide, great experience! We limited out on redfish in 3 hours and had a blast doing it. Don’t get “salty”, get happy! Fish with Blaze!
First time bay fishing and it was a blast! Couldn’t have had a better guide for my first trip out on the water. He was very patient and extremely open to questions and teaching everyone on the boat what they needed to do. He did great putting us on some reds! Definitely will use him again as soon as possible. Thanks again Captain Blaze!
Had an awesome time catching Red Drum and trout today with my wife and Captain Blaze. Cant wait to come back later this year for some duck hunting and more fish. 3/20 and 3/21/2020- Went out with Cpt. Blaze one day, and had enough fun we came back the next day for round 2. My wife and I had a blast and caught a ton of trout, and a monster drum.
