Bob's Guide Service

Explore Port Isabel, Texas with “Bob’s Guide Service”! Owned and operated by Guide Bob Sirvello, this local pro is an expert at hooking inshore fish. If it’s a trophy you’re after, he’s the guide for you!

Hop aboard a 26’ Majek center console, powered by a single 250 HP engine. She’s the ideal choice for up to 6 anglers and delivers a fast and smooth ride to get you to the productive spots quickly. You’ll make good use of the wireless trolling motor to sneak up on your targets and keep your catch fresh in the icebox.

The lower Laguna Madre is the spot to be for Snook, Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, the super delicious Flounder. If you’re in town during Tarpon season, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to battle it out with the mighty “Silver King”!

There’s no need to worry about gear. Your guide provides rods, reels, tackle, and lures. He’ll even catch live bait along the way. At the end of the day, your catch is cleaned and filleted to take home for dinner. Just be sure to bring along a cooler for easy transport.

You’re free to pack any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy and, most importantly, remember to pick up a fishing license before you head out. Experience some of the best fishing in all of Texas with Bob’s Guide Service!
