Benny's Guide Service

(19)
In demand!

People of all experience levels are welcome at Benny’s Guide Service. Captain Benny will make sure you have a great day out on the water – his main aim is to make you happy!

You will spend the day aboard a 26’ center console. Originally built in 2019, she is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 38 knots. With these speeds, you’ll be at all the best fishing spots in no time. The fishfinder, paired with Capt. Benny’s extensive knowledge, will have your lines in the water reeling in the fish of your dreams before you know it.

His shorter trips are great for people who would like to stay in sight of the shore. You’ll still be able to target the same species as the longer trip, which makes this a great introduction to nearshore Texas fishing. The T-Top will keep the sun off of you, and the comfortable seats mean you can sit and enjoy the music Capt. Benny will have playing, all while waiting for your turn to fish.

Everyone is welcome on these trips. There is no minimum age for kids, so as long as the parents are happy then Capt. Benny is happy too. Life jackets are provided for the little ones, but for maximum comfort Capt. Benny does recommend parents bring their own for the kids.

You can expect to target a wide range of fish on these trips. Jack Crevalle, Cobia, Redfish, Red Snapper, Kingfish, Sheepshead and Blacktip Shark are all species you can expect to reel in.

You will need to bring along plenty of water and any snacks that you fancy. A Texas fishing license will also need to be purchased before the trip. On the day, you can buy bait for around $25 per person. The rods and reels will all be provided for.

For all the fish that you decide to keep, Captain Benny is happy to fillet them for you free of charge. You only have to decide how to cook it once your home.

    This trip is great for going the extra mile and making sure you catch plenty of Redfish, Trout, Shark, Sheepshead, and many more. These trips work best with just 4 lines in the water, although 6 can be on board. For the party of 6, will need to take it in turns to fish. Please note, bait is an extra cost on all of these trips. You'll need to keep your energy up, so bring plenty of food and drink along with you.

    This trip will stay in sight of the shore, so is great for those new to fishing. You will target Trout, Redfish, Shark, Sheepshead, and many more. Bait is an additional cost on the day. If the weather is great, all 6 anglers can fish at once. If it's bad weather then only 4 lines can be in the water at once. Please bring plenty of water with you.

    This trip is great for beginners who do not want to go too far out. You'll stay within sight of land. You will target Shark, Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, and more. On these trips, it is easier for all 6 anglers to fish at once. If the weather is bad though, only 4 will be able to have their lines in the water at the same time. Bait will need to be purchased on the day. Please bring plenty of water and sunscreen along.

Captain Benny has been guiding for over 30 years. He loves taking people out and showing them a good time. When he fishes, he has the music playing, the beers flowing, and the fish just keep biting. He came to this area when he retired in '09, after coming here to fish for over 20 years. He loves being a full-time guide and hopes you find the same love for fishing after his trips.
