About Your Trip

If you are looking to hunt with one of the best outifts on the Texas coast you've found your group of guys with Gus and his outfit. Beyond expert guiding the area itself (Around South Padre Island) provide a unique opportunity to target a wide swath of Duck Species including Wigeons, Mottled Ducks, tons of Pintail, Redheads, Teal, Gadwalls, Shovelers, Mergansers, Scaup and Black Bellys!

Gus can take as many people as you'd like running
shuttles out to his blinds between his two boats. He even offers to hunt 3 at a time from his own boat as well! In addition to his Carolina Skiff, he also runs a 18' Tracker Grizzly skiff with a Gator Tail mud motor and a 18' Polar Craft with a 50-HP Yamaha! Whatever boat you're on, you'll be kitted out for a sweet hunt.

Since the ducks often fly both in the morning and the afternoon, this trip can either start in the morning or the afternoon depending on your preference and what the ducks are doing of course!

Captain Gus and his team provide all the decoys, dogs, and professional calling and expert guiding for your hunt and ask that you bring your own guns, shells, and waders if you'd like to stay dry. He wil also provide a cooler with ice and water for you and encourages you to bring you own beverages of choice along as well.

About Your Guide

Captain Gus

Independent Guide
Captin Gus has lived back and forth from Colorado to South Texas my entire life. His father moved to the island when Gus was a boy and taught him the ins and outs of the bay every summer throughout his childhood. Together they spent countless hours finding potholes full of trout and sand flats littered with redfish. His father instilled in him a fierce passion for the outdoors and planted the seeds for him to pursue a career chasing the critters he has come to love and respect.

With the help of some local legends including forty year veteran Capt. Skipper Ray, Gus has honed his skills as a fisherman and professional guide fishing the Lower Laguna Madre. But for him the bay still provides an incredible environment to learn and grow. Every day he finds new places to fish and duck hunt and he welcomes you to join him on one of these incredible adventures!

During the fall Captain Gus heads north to Crawford, Colorado to team up with the Homestead Ranch Crew to chase elk, deer, mountain lion, and bear. Homestead Ranch is an original homestead that the McLeods have maintained since 1914. Six generations of incredible preservation have built the hunting experience of a lifetime. He is truly honored to have been a part of this team for the last few years.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
