Drift & Wade Fishing Guide Service

Mansfield Road
Port Mansfield TX, United States

Captain Jerry Reyna of Drift and Wade Fishing Guide Services has been fishing the lower Laguna Madre for over thirty years and he is looking forward to sharing his knowledge of the best local fishing techniques with you. A retired Art teacher, Captain Jerry runs a family friendly charter service and welcomes people of all ages and ability levels aboard his boat.

Your trip will take place aboard a 21 ft Majek flats boat that was designed specifically for accessing the shallow waters where Redfish, Trout, and Flounder live. The boat is wide and stable, making it a good option for family fishing, and it features a range of advanced fishing amenities, including a fishfinder, GPS, trolling motor, anchoring system, and an ice box. As if that wasn’t enough, the boat’s 150 HP Yamaha SHO engine will take you between the fishing spots quickly, allowing you to get the most out of your day on the water.

Captain Jerry is an expert wade fisher who loves to entice Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder by throwing artificial bait, so you will find a range of artificial lures waiting for you on your fishing trip. If you would rather fish with live bait, however, that is not a problem: everything you need will be provided, and Captain Jerry will tailor your trip to what you are most comfortable with doing and what you enjoy most.

Drift and Wade Fishing Guide Services supplies a range of tackle for your trip, as well as drinks and snacks. All you need to bring is your salt water fishing license and a good pair of polarized sunglasses.

Come fish with Captain Jerry and have a good time fishing the beautiful Lower Laguna Madre!
