Sherwood’s Guide Service

When it comes down to fishing the beautiful flats of Port Aransas, Sherwood’s Guide Service is an excellent choice. This company is run and operated by Captain Matt. He is a native guide who has been fishing in the area for over 30 years.

Matt can accommodate any angler, no matter the age or skill level. His goal is to make sure everyone who comes aboard has a great adventure and a lot of fun. Bring your family, friends, or colleagues with you to enjoy the finest inshore fishing that Texas has to offer.

Choose from a half or a full-day trip and join Capt. Matt aboard his 25’ Haynie Magnum boat. Fresh on the water in 2018, this spacious craft has plenty of room for up to 6 anglers. It can almost “fly” at a hair-raising 60 knots thanks to its 250 HP Mercury engine. The boat is rigged with a couple of livewells filled with bait – your hooks will be irresistible! There are also navigational and fishfinding electronics to save your time while searching for fish.

Sherwood’s Guide Service is a family-friendly company – kids are especially welcome to join in the adventure. They will enjoy light tackle fishing for Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout!

All trips include the use of gear and tackle, as well as bait. You will need to purchase a fishing license, bring your food, drinks, and lures, and show up!
