Ryan Bailey Guide Service is based in Corpus Christi, Texas. Captain Ryan is an experienced angler and is also a great teacher. It does not matter whether you are a beginner, an occasional angler or a pro – Captain Ryan will always make sure you have a memorable day out on the water. He will share his knowledge and will take you to where the fish are biting best!

You will be fishing aboard a brand-new 22-foot center console boat, powered by a 225 Mercury engine. The vessel is equipped with a live bait tank and a GPS to aid your search for the fish. It can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers.

Ryan did an outstanding job under less than ideal conditions. The wind was gusting and created less than what one would hope for under a blue moon situation. Ryan put my brother and I on the fish. We caught speckled trout and redfish…made it a great day and great experience. I will say this, Ryan is an excellent guide as he take the time to teach, answers any questions you can toss his way and helped me to get a feeling (important stuff, actually) for where to find the fish and what to use to catch them under different conditions and times of the year. All in all, a great experience!!  Thanks, Ryan for a great day of good times and memories.  (And some good eating fish!!!)

Captain Ryan was great!! We really enjoyed ourselves! The fish were biting right off the bat!!! But after the sun came up and the wind picked up the fish quit biting! Captain Ryan tried everything in his power to help us out to get us some more fish but it just didn’t happen! We ended up with 7 trout which is pretty good for our first time considering the weather! The wind was really bad so we decided to end our day early! We would recommend captain Ryan!!
