Patriot Guide Service

Port O'Connor TX, United States

Patriot Guide Service is not only about putting their customers on fish, but also providing a first class child friendly experience in Port O’Connor. 

You’ll be fishing on a 26 ft central console Pathfinder boat, operated by Captain Derick Kuyrkendall. The boat can comfortably hold up to 4 persons. The Pathfinder is powered by a 300 HP engine and is best for inshore and nearshore fishing, and is equipped with outriggers. With a wireless trolling monitor, a GPS and a fishfinder on board, you will have a delightful day out around the Gulf of Mexico, the Jetty’s and Matagorda bay.

The Captain’s various techniques range from drifting to bottom fishing. Depending on the weather conditions and the length of the trip, you will target Red Snapper, Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, Tarpon, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Cobia, and Porbeagle Shark. Derick will clean and fillet the catch for you at the end of the adventure.  Rods, reels and tackle are included.
