Dunkin Guide Systems and Captain Douglas invite you to experience the best Texas inshore angling around. With ‘No Catch - No Pay’ guarantee, you will be able to enjoy a healthy dose of outstanding catches and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Capt. Douglas welcomes fishermen of all ages and skill levels. Introduce your kids to these productive waters and enjoy seeing their smile when they reel in their first ever catch. Or master your cast with an experienced guide who has been fishing South Padre Island for over 3 decades.

You will be checking the bite in the inshore waters, flats, and backcountry. It’s also possible to head just a little further out and check other productive spots. You will be trolling, jigging, and light tackle spinning for Tarpon, Sheepshead, Flounder, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, Speckled Trout, Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, and Kingfish.

Dunkin Guide Systems will take you out aboard a 22’ Dargle center console, a brand-new fishing machine. This spacious boat comes powered by a single 200 HP Suzuki engine and can cruise at a top speed of 32 knots. The boat can take up to 5 anglers to fish in comfort and style. It is outfitted with a GPS, a fishfinder, a wireless trolling motor for a professional experienced, and a livewell loaded with bait.

All trips include rods, tackle, reels, bait, lures, and a complimentary fish cleaning service. You will need to have a valid Texas fishing license, bring something to eat and drinks, and show up.

I have always fished these waters since the early '70's with my grandfather. I have been a charter captain most of my adult life. I love being on the water and teaching people how to fish. That's why I have a no fish no pay policy. I use live bait or artificial depending on clients and what the fish are responding to.
