Ruffling Feathers Guide Service

2649 Stella Avenue
Port O'Connor TX, United States

Ruffling Feathers Guide Service operates out of Port O’Conner, TX, running guided charters targeting Trout, Redfish and Flounder. Port O’Conner is famous for its awesome fishing, with shallow flats, murky backcountry and calm inshore bays all teeming with tasty fish just waiting to be reeled in.

You will be spending your day aboard a 21 ft Shoalwater flats boat. Built in 2014, this classic design is one of the most popular around due to its shallow draft and masses of deck space, getting you into even the skinniest waters, and allowing up to 4 anglers to fish in comfort once you get there. The boat comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder to help hone in on the biggest catches, a livewell to keep your bait fresh if you choose to use it, and top quality tackle to give you the upper hand against even the fightiest fish.

Ruffling Feathers Guide Services is all about having great fun catching great fish, and they have set everything up to make sure you get both halves of the perfect charter. On each trip, you will be taken to all the best spots for the species you want to go after, and will be given the choice of jigging, drifting, or bottom fishing to best target everything the area has to offer.

Captain Brandon has been guiding the waters around Port O’Conner for years, and has been fishing his entire life. He will work with you ahead of time, planning your trip so you get the most out of your day, and once out on the water he will use every ounce of his extensive experience on to make sure he gets you on the fish. At the end of the trip Captain Brandon will also clean and fillet all your catch for you, ready to eat - just remember to bring a big cooler, because you’re going to have a lot of fish!

Took my son on his first saltwater fishing trip. Captain Brandon worked with him to help him catch his limit of trout and red snapper. He is friendly, patient and knows how and where to catch fish. We had a great time.
