Fishswirl Guide Services

Making Fishing easy is what Fishswirl Guide Services does! Join Captain Kevin, who’s been fishing this area for over 30 years. Whether you are a pro or just beginning fishing, he can teach you what you need to know or collaborate to find trophy fish. Everything you’ve always wanted to know about fishing is waiting for you.

The journey starts on a 24’ Blazer Bay boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. Built in 2019, this boat is powered by a 300 HP Evinrude engine, and features modern navigational electronics and a wireless trolling motor. You’ll also find a live bait tank here and a cooler for your catch.

Enjoy fishing the Laguna Madre for big Trout, Redfish, and Flounder. You can occasionally fish nearshore, when weather permits, going offshore for Snapper, Grouper, and Kingfish. Try out different techniques and see which one works best for you. Depending on what you’re targeting, even kids can become a part of the action and catch their first fish.

The captain covers your fishing equipment and bottled water. After the trip, if you’re planning to eat the fish you’ve caught, he’ll clean your catch free of charge. You only need to purchase your fishing license on time and pack some snacks.

Jolin Fishswirl Guide Services for an amazing day around the waters of Corpus Christi. The trips are available year round, so you only need to pick a date.
