We booked the half day trip, the weather wasn’t supposed to be great. Captain Mike monitored the weathered days in advance. He accommodated us by pushing the time back some to avoid too much wind. The trip worked out great. We aimed to catch all types of fish, just to say we did, and captain Mike came through! We caught 4 or the 5 types we were trying to. Captain Mike was very friendly and helpful and accommodating! We had a blast!! Thanks Captain Mike!!!

Well the weather conditions were not on our side when we first sailed out into the waters of trinity bay; the fog was heavy and there was a chill in the air but the water temperature was set and ready. On our first spot casting out the fish were not quite cooperative with the live shrimp/ popping cork combo, so our professional angler decided to make a move to a spot that he knew was certain to catch some fish. After moving to the spot we hooked up on a couple of trout that were legal keeper sized! That was the start of something spectacular! For a good while we caught some decent fish but the catches started to slowly deteriorate, at that moment our guide Mike decided that it was a good time to make another move. After about 10-15 minutes of riding around the bay Mike saw what looked like a promising sign; bait jumping out of the water. Something that we hadn’t seen all morning! Mike decided that we should drift into the bait, so we did! After that the rest was history! Within a 30 minute span we caught our limit in trout and decided to start catching and releasing due to the fact that our bag limit was full! Little did we know that Mike had one more trick up his sleeve for us. We moved to a spot where Mike knew that the Reds would be at and sure enough he did not fail! Within the time we pulled up to the time the first line was casted we were on the money! Mike never failed us once on our trip!  I would recommend Reel Smooth Guide Service to anyone who is looking to hook a bag limit of trout and a good ol fight from the coastal Red fish!
