Steven’s Guide Service is your best Port Aransas fishing charter. This part of Texas is abundant with a large variety of fish species and the coastal scenery is second to none. You will be welcomed with a friendly smile and treated like family. A unique combination of a friendly atmosphere and a vast knowledge will make your day out on the water a memorable experience you won’t soon forget.

Enjoy your fishing trip with Steven’s Guide Service aboard a 23’ flats boat, which can run in less than 6’’ of water where the other boats won’t dare to go. Originally built in 2000, the vessel was upgraded in 2016 and comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. It provides comfortable fishing space for up to 4 people. A multimedia system is fitted on board for the anglers to relax in between the bites. The vessel’s trolling motor enables a quiet ride.

Whether you want to fish the oyster reefs, the nearshore rigs or the channels – Steven’s Guide Service will always find the hottest spots where the fish are biting. 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 purchase a Texas resident or non-resident saltwater fishing license, along with waders, a hat, sunscreen, your camera, food, and drinks.

With Steven’s Guide Service, you will be taken care of and leave with a bag full of fish and lifelong memories.

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.
