Born on the coastal bend I come from a fishing family. The addiction was passed down to me from my father and since day one I have not looked back. Its not a job nor a hobby its my passion, I love fishing and teaching different techniques to everyone from beginner level to those that fish daily. Fishing is a fun filled family sport. Book a trip and lets get out on the bay.

From start to finish this adventure exceeded our expectations.  Jeff Acosta is an experienced guide who made sure that we came home with a nice haul of fish.  Big props to his boat - cool neon lights with plenty of room and seating for our group.  As the fishing date approached, Jeff continuously provided detailed information about the weather and great fishing instructions during the trip.  I highly recommend Acosta’s Guide Service for any angler looking for a great experience.

Jeff was great!
The pattern had obviously changed post spawn.  There were a large number of boats on the reefs and nobody was breaking any records.  Jeff motored around and changed our tactics till he found us some fish.  But, what I was most impressed by was that he stayed extra hours on the water with us to make sure everyone in my family caught fish.  We put 10 in the box, and that was more than we saw any other boats pull in.  He truly cares about his clients and loves what he is doing.
