Hooks & Horns Fishing Guide Service

136 West Cotter Avenue
Port Aransas TX, United States

Captain Justin will take you boat or wade fishing on some of the most pristine bays in Texas. It doesn’t matter if your preference is bait fishing or using artificial lures, Captain Justin is an expert at both. He can also teach you how to properly use your bait and improve your skills to catch bigger fish.

Enjoy Texas Gulf Coast fishing in the saltwater bays and flats surrounding Rockport, Aransas Pass, Port Aransas and Ingleside, Texas with Captain Justin. Fish for Monster sized redfish, trophy trout and flounder in Copano, St. Charles, Redfish, Aransas, Mesquite, San Antonio and South bays.

While redfish and speckled trout are the main focus of Captain Justin, it is important to be prepared for anything. It is not uncommon to have opportunities at jack crevalle, black drum, sheepshead, flounder, triple tail, lady fish, and maybe even small sharks.

Captain Justin is a USCG licensed captain who is also CPR and First Aid Certified. He has a cell phone aboard - safety of the passengers comes first.  Captain Justin has invested considerable time and effort to create a guide service that can provide you virtually any type of guided fishing activity you are looking for!

Captain Justin is a strong believer in conservation of resources and the environment. He believes it’s a good thing to take pictures of that trophy trout and then to let it go. If you want to keep it and have it mounted, that’s ok too. Trout that are 15”-25” are the perfect eating size!
Hooks & Horns Fishing Guide Service is your best all around service for any fishing activity you will find in South Texas!  So give us a call and we will
Hook You Up!

Thanks Captain Justin
