We’ve been fishing with Lur’em In Fishing many times over the past year. We are extremely grateful for Capt Fil’s passion and the extra effort he puts in to ensure every one of our trips is phenomenal. His knowledge of fishing and the waters of Corpus Christi along with his sharing his techniques is beyond compare. He’s put us on the best fish the area has to offer, like redfish, trout, sheepshead and black drum. After the last trip we took, we limited out on trout and had to buy another cooler to bring all the fish we caught home. There’s nothing better than being out on the water with Capt Fil.

Lur’em In is everything and more than you could want from a fishing charter. Capt Fil’s knowledge, dedication and kindness is what keeps us coming back again and again.

We found Captain Cortez while looking for a trip for spring break 2017. A little negotiating and we found ourselves fishing many days in a row on that trip. We’ve been back for a total of 12 trips out in 2017.

Each trip out we try all kinds of techniques and places. Fish with bait, ok. Lures only, let’s get after it. Wade, deep water, rigs, shallows, reefs, lumps, whatever we do it all. Other charters I’ve been on have always wanted to just focus on one thing, putting trout in a box as fast as possible and ending the trip early.

We called Fil one time and said “It’s a full moon weekend, we want to fish for 24 hours straight”. Fil replies, “no problem, sounds like fun”.

This last trip we limited out on 20” trout within an hour of launching. We caught a few more we had to release.  Most captains would call it a day at that point. Not ours. We went out looking for drum, redfish, pompano, and Spanish mackerel. We switched to lure fishing to get more practice in. We went out the next morning and tried all new places and had a great time.

My experience with Captain Cortez (lur’em in fishing) was awesome. He put us on all the fish we were wanting to catch that day. Captain Cortez was friendly, fun, efficient, and professional. I would definately recommend booking a trip with this guy it was money well spent.
