3R Guide Service

South Padre Island Drive
Corpus Christi TX, United States

Texas is well known for its excellent inshore fishing and the gorgeous nature that surrounds its waters. 3R Guide Service will take you to the hottest fishing spots and help you in getting that dream catch.

Climb aboard the 25’ Haynie center console, built recently, in 2017. She’s powered by a 350 HP Mercury Verado engine, giving her incredible speed, up to 76 knots! That’s in place to make sure you don’t waste any time on traveling and get right to the fishing action. There’s an advanced navigation and fish-finder system on board, allowing you to find the hottest spots rapidly.

The species targeted on this trip will mainly be Redfish, Flounder, and Spotted Seatrout. Techniques applied are drift fishing, bottom fishing, jigging, and light tackle. Customers are advised to bring sunscreen, long-sleeve shirts, polarized sunglasses, and a waterproof camera.

There is no minimum age for children, but the captain advises parents to bring their own vests for their kids. Captain Nick Russo is keen on making sure his customers have a fantastic time with him on his trips. His goal is for each and every one of his clients to net a new personal best on a trip, and he’ll work very hard to make that happen.
