An avid angler of over 10 years, Capt. Randal decided to start sharing his passion with others.

After developing a passion for fishing with his family and friends, Captain Randal decided to share his enthusiasm with others and began teaching people how to fish. A licensed captain since 2012, he loves to get out on the water at least a few times a day, and running charters is the perfect excuse. He's just as happy taking out groups of experienced anglers looking for that prized catch as he is teaching kids to fish. With many first, second, and third place prizes in the Texas Tournament Zone and Media Bass competitions over the years, he's just the guy to get you filling the boat with Bass!
