Courteous and friendly Guide.  Tried various spots.  Caught two keeper trout.  Fish just were not biting.  Would recommend Captain Ruben.

Prior to this fishing experience, I did not expect to have as much fun as I had. Everything, from the captain’s joyous attitide to the abundance of trout in the water, aided to the overall quality of the fishing trip. I encourage all South Texas fishing enthusiasts to participate in this specific fishing experience, for I am being completely honest when I say that this may have been one of the best fishing charters I’ve been privileged to attend.
