Captain Brian traveled across the whole US in search of the best fishing spots. He finally settled in Aransas Pass, since nothing beats the scene of South Texas. That is how Aggie Guide Service came to life.

Captain Brian specializes in family fishing trips. Being a father of 4, he loves having kids on board. On some trips, his wife joins him, especially if there are other ladies that want to learn wade fishing.

These trips mainly focus on catching Trout, Redfish, and Flounder. What sets Capt. Brian apart from other guides are exciting ways you can catch your trophy. You can go fishing in the bay on a 23’ Haynie Bigfoot bay boat; wading in the flats; or use an airboat when the water level is very low.

You’ll explore Corpus Christi Bay, Nueces Bay, Aransas Bay, and Redfish Bay. The trips typically start at sunrise or shortly after, and you fish until you catch the limit. Each trip can be customized, so let the captain know if you have any preferences.

Capt. Brain fully covers your rods, reels, bait, and tackle, as well as water and ice. Feel free to bring your drinks and snacks and don’t forget to purchase your fishing license.

Aggie Guide Service strives for fun! They’ll make your day on the water as enjoyable as it can be. You only need to set the date!

    You can take the Haynie out to the rigs, the flats, and the rocks, go wade fishing, or take the airboat out to the back flats where bay boats can’t go. The experience of riding across the ankle-deep water to the fishing holes is one you’ll never forget. If you want to go wade fishing, please bring your waders.

I have always enjoyed the outdoors and everything it has to offer. I became a Marine in 1983, right out of high school. It wasn’t until I started attending TAMU that my like for the outdoors grew to obsessed for the outdoors. I graduated in 1991 with a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology. I began traveling the different regions in the US, including Alaska to hunt and fish, however, nothing beat the South Texas tug of a Redfish in knee deep water, or the shaking pull of a trout. As a result, I moved to Rockport in 1993. I got married in 1994, and we now have 4 awesome kids, 1 Marine, 2 Aggies, and our bonus baby who just turned 12. Life is good!
