Whether you want to fish the oyster reefs, the nearshore rigs, or the channels – Steven’s Guide Service will always find the hottest spots around. Choose which trip suits you best, be it a half day morning adventure, an afternoon ride, or an eight-hour action. Steven’s Guide Service specializes in catching trophy Redfish, Flounder, and Spotted Seatrout, as well as Black Drum. The captain is very familiar with the methods that work best, including light tackle, bottom fishing, and drift fishing.

An adventure with Steven’s Guide Service comes inclusive with everything you need to make an outstanding catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. You will need to bring a Texas saltwater fishing license, along with waders, a hat, sunscreen, your camera, food, and drinks.

I was born and raised here in Port Aransas and I’ve been fishing these waters for over 30+ years. I try and fish 360 days a year whether it’s with clients or myself, so to say I’ve got lots of knowledge of the surrounding bays. I like to site cast for Redfish.
