No Slack Guide Service

No Slack Guide Service invites you to experience an authentic Texan fishing experience out of Matagorda. Your guide for the day will be Captain Matthew David, who has been fishing these waters since the age of 12. He knows this fishery like the back of his hand and will do his best to get you on fish at any time of the year.

You’ll be fishing from his 24’ bay boat that runs on a single 250 HP Suzuki engine, allowing it to get you to the action quickly. There’s room on the boat for up to 4 anglers, so you’re free to bring some friends or family members along for the ride. A wireless trolling motor on board will allow you to get close to the fish without spooking them.

Capt. Matthew specializes in inshore and nearshore trips where you can find a variety of local species. These include Redfish and Flounder, as well as Speckled Trout. He will also be happy to clean and fillet the catch after the trip for your convenience.

All of the necessary fishing equipment will be provided, but the use of bait is charged an extra $50. It’s also possible to accommodate 2 kids in addition to 4 adults, but you will need to contact the captain prior to the trip because it may require an extra charge and different setup.

Bring your fishing licenses and come on down to enjoy a day of proper fishing – no slacking is the name of the game.

My passion and aspiration to fish professionally started at a very young age as a child. I grew up originally freshwater fishing in Texas, on a trophy Bass and Crappie lake, known as Lake Fork. My family and I moved to the coast when I was 12 and I started fishing saltwater and have been addicted for the last 28 years. I have fished up and down the entire Texas coast with thousands upon thousands of hours both inshore and offshore. I pride myself on being a diverse fisherman and as a Captain, with tons of experience on multiple different fronts. I enjoy coaching, and teaching my clients and passing on the knowledge that I have acquired over a lifetime.
