Fishswirl Guide Services

Making Fishing easy is what Fishswirl Guide Services does! Join Captain Kevin on the beautiful waters of the Lafuna Madre. Whether you are a seasoned angler or just beginning fishing, he can teach you what you need to know or collaborate to find great fish.

The journey starts on a 24’ Mamba boat that accommodates up to 5 guests. Built in 2022, this boat is powered by a 300 HP Mercury XS Pro engine and it 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.

Join 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.
