I've come from a long line of fishermen. We have fished these waters since I was a child and raised in Louisiana waters as well with my grandparents. I became a full time fisherman to teach and share the enjoyment of the sport and all it has to offer.

Awesome trip, catered to every request and put me on the fish at every drop of the anchor. Will definitely go with this guide service next time I am in the area!

Despite the bad weather during the early hours of the morning, they managed to be patient enough for waiting a couple hours. And guess what! It was sunny one hour after the heavy rain. Texas weather is weird…

Captain David put us on the fish at many different locations.  We ended up with some beautiful Redfish keepers.
