Ryan Bailey Guide Service

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 Bailey Guide Service invites you to spend a day out on the beautiful waters of Corpus Christi. You will get a chance to target the Captain’s specialty – Redfish and Spotted Seatrout using light tackle.

The price of your trip will include your fishing equipment: rods, reels, tackle, and live bait. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home. You can feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks on board.

Captain Ryan and his Ryan Bailey Guide Service is an ideal opportunity to get your hands full of fish, all in the company of a true professional. Look no further!
