Affordable Guide Service runs fishing trips on the waters of Calaveras and Braunig lakes. Just minutes away from the hustle of San Antonio, you will find productive fisheries. Here you can hope to catch Redfish, hybrid Striped Bass, and Catfish. With Affordable Guide Service, you and your kids will have a memorable time out. More experienced anglers will test their skills and try to land some big fish.

Affordable Guide Service can accommodate up to six people. Their 26’ Carolina Skiff is powered by a 200 HP Suziki engine. She is rigged with GPS, a fishfinder, and stores life jackets. Bring an ice box to take your fish come cool, once Captain Alex cleans it for you.

When you head out, you’ll get to try trolling, jigging, popping, or use light tackle. The fish can grow big around here, so your trip promises to be productive. Captain Alex will furnish rods, reels, and tackle, lures, and live bait. You will need to bring a valid Texas fishing license.

Pack snacks, drinks, bring a sunblock, sunglasses, and a cap. Wear comfortable clothes and footwear, and add an extra layer of clothing to your backpack, in case you get wet while fishing. If you’re prone to seasickness, take your medications.

Also, bring a camera to take some nice photos of your outing. Captain Alex knows where the fish are, so you don’t want to miss making nice shots of your catch. Once packed, come onboard, and see what fishing is like on these Texas lakes.
