Drift & Wade Fishing Guide Service

If you’re looking for a way to really get back to nature and hook some impressive fish, hop aboard Drift & Wade Fishing Guide Services. Jerry Rayner has been fishing the Lower Laguna Madre for over 30 years, and can’t wait to share his knowledge of the best local fishing techniques with you!

A retired art teacher, Jerry runs a family-friendly charter service and welcomes people of all ages and ability levels. He’ll take you drifting down some of the Lower Laguna’s most peaceful and fish-filled spots, where you’ll have the chance to encounter Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder.

Your trip will take place aboard a 21’ Majek flats boat that was designed specifically for accessing the shallow waters where these species live. She can accommodate up to 3 guests and is wide and stable, making her an excellent option for family fishing.

She features a range of advanced fishing amenities, including a fishfinder, GPS, trolling motor,  and anchoring system. As if that wasn’t enough, the boat’s 150 HP Yamaha SHO engine will take you between the fishing spots efficiently, allowing you to get the most out of your day on the water.

Jerry is an expert wade fisher who loves to entice Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder by throwing artificial bait, so you’ll find a range of artificial lures waiting for you on your fishing trip. If you’d rather fish with live bait, this is also possible. Everything you need will be provided, and Jerry will tailor your trip to perfectly suit your group’s wishes and skill levels.

Each adventure with Jerry includes a range of tackle, rods, reels, and bait, as well as drinks and snacks. All you need to bring is your saltwater fishing license and a good pair of polarized sunglasses, which will help you spot your target fish more easily. Come aboard Drift & Wade Fishing Guide Services and get ready to explore the beautiful Lower Laguna Madre!
