About Your Guide

Ever since he was a youngster, Ronny Marett has loved to fish. It's no wonder since his father was also hooked on the sport. Growing up, Ronny and his parents made many trips to South Padre Island spending everyday out on the bay with bait and pole. After spending years participating in and winning fishing tournaments, Ronny decided it was time to make the Luguna Madre area his stompin' grounds and take his love of fishing to a new level.

After getting his Captain's license, Ronny began Lone Star Charters and has been making dreams come true for expert and novice fishermen alike. Located at Sea Ranch Marina, Lone Star Charters specializes in bay guide fishing on a 22' Shallow Sport boat.

Booking half day or full day fishing trips with Lone Star Charters, you can expect to catch redfish, trout or flounder. Captain Ronny Marett has been a guide in many fishing tournaments and his customers have won numerous trophies throughout the Texas Gulf region. With the bait and tackle supplied, as well as ice and plenty of cold water, all you have to bring is your fishing license with a saltwater stamp and high expectations. Families are always welcome, from the youngest novice to the most experienced angler, seven days a week and all year long. Ronny is dedicated to doing what it takes to make sure you have an experience you will never forget. It pays to go with an experienced guide fisherman who knows the waters of Laguna Madre and where to find the big ones. So, for a first class bay or close-in offshore fishing adventure in South Padre Island, Lone Star Charters will not disappoint.

I booked this trip for my dad & brothers as a fathers day gift. There were some issues with guide availability for the weekend that we wanted to come but the girl who is in charge of that was super helpful in finding a trip that would work for us. By chance of luck, they got paired with Ron & in their words it was the best fishing trip any of them have ever been on. Ron was energetic, friendly, supportive & fun. He was not going to let them leave without catching the maximum amount of fish allowed. My dad & brothers are not the type to do reviews & they are not easily won over but they specifically made it a point to be sure i made a review to let everyone know how amazing Ron was. We will be sure to book with Ron for every fishing trip from here on out. Thank you Ron!!
