Ambush Guide Service

Do you want to fish the productive Aransas and Copano Bays with an expert guide? Then join Captain David Huntress of Ambush Guide Service for a memorable and fun day of fishing. With 25 years of experience, you can bet that Capt. David is familiar with all the best fish hideouts in the area.

You will be casting your line out of a 22’ bay boat, fitted with a 200 HP Suzuki engine, and ready to take up to 4 anglers on their next expedition. The quality navigational electronics on board will take you to the red-hot bite, which is usually a 15–30 minute ride from shore.

The captain will provide top-of-the-line Penn and Shakespeare fishing gear and live bait for the trip, which is of paramount importance. After the trip, while you relax in the shade, your captain will clean and fillet the catch for you, free of charge.

So what are your primary targets in these shallow waters? You can expect a wide range of inshore favorites on your hook, from Redfish and Speckled Trout to massive Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Flounder. They’re all worthy opponents and catching them will be a fun challenge.

Kids and adults will all have a great time when fishing with Ambush Guide Service, and your captain will go out of his way to provide the best service possible. You only need to bring your fishing license, food, drinks, and a sense of adventure, and Capt. David will take care of everything else!

About the Captain

Ever since I was a kid, I always loved to fish the Rockport bays. My parents would bring me here every summer, and I've always had the best time fishing here. So much so that I decided to move to Rockport from San Antonio and start my own charter business! I do my best to customize the trips to my customers' wishes and provide them with the top-notch service.
