Captain Sammy Mock – Bay Fishing

“Captain Sammy Mock” invites you on an exciting fishing trip in the Lower Laguna Madre flats. With a lifetime of fishing experience on South Texas’ waters, Capt. Sammy is your ultimate shallow water guide. He started fishing at 8 years old and his family instilled a love for the sport early on. He’ll make you fall in love with Texas fishing too!

Hop aboard a 24’ Dargel flats boat, ideal for up to 4 anglers. She’s powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, which will see you zipping through the shallows with ease. This wide and stable ride also features the latest in GPS and Fishfinder to make your search easier.

The waters surrounding Laguna Madre are stocked with some of the most desirable inshore fish. Capt. Sammy shares his knowledge of the local honey-holes as he takes you in search of species including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder.

Hooking into Redfish happens to be his specialty, and you’ll soon see why! These fish fight hard and provide great action, pound for pound. If you’ve never caught one before, just wait and you’ll be hooked, too!

Capt. Sammy brings along all the rods, reels, and tackle needed to suit both experienced and novice anglers. At the end of the trip, he’s happy to clean and fillet any catch you choose to keep. All you’ll need to bring are any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy and, most importantly, a valid Texas fishing license.

Hop aboard and see what Texas fishing is all about with Captain Sammy Mock!

Member since March 2017
Captain Sammy Mock has been fishing with his dad and grandad since he was 8 years. Since fishing runs in the family, transitioning into becoming a guide was a natural choice for him. After 30 years of working at US Postal Services, he retired and took up fishing and guiding full time. He is a kind and generous man with a wicked sense of humor. He loves taking out children and teaching them about this sport and the local fisheries!
