Bent Pole Guide Service

Bent Pole Guide Service will take you fishing the flats and bay systems of Port O’Connor and surrounding areas. Captain Tony has been fishing here for over 30 years and has lots of experience to share with you. Whether you’re a skilled angler or a complete novice, it’s always better to have a professional by your side.

You will be fishing aboard a new 23’ Shoalwater catamaran equipped with live wells, Garmin GPS, Sirius Radio, and lots of dry storage. She’s powered by a 300 HP Mercury engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 55 knots. There’s enough room for 4 guests, so bring your family or friends along.

Capt. Tony can take you drift and wade fishing for Trout and Reds on the Texas Gulf coast, from Matagorda Bay to Corpus Christi. He prefers using artificial lures and live bait under popping corks. Whatever the fish are biting on! You can also catch Tripletail, Flounder, and Black Drum.

All fishing equipment and tackle will be furnished and included in the price. You get to keep the catch, so it’s recommended to bring a cooler. You’ll need to purchase your fishing license and pack some food and drinks for your trip.

Bent Pole Guide Service has a goal to make your fishing experience the one to remember for a lifetime.

I've had a passion for fishing and hunting ever since I was a young adult. Fishing is my favorite sport and past time. I am also an avid duck and deer hunter. I enjoy being outdoors and on the water.
