Spend your day testing the waters close to the shore. Target Redfish, Flounder, and Seatrout. Or head further out to search for Mahi-Mahi, Red Snapper, Cobia, King Mackerel, and many more. There is always something in season and biting!

Always An Adventure specializes in a variety of fishing techniques, from bottom fishing and drift fishing to trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and fly fishing. The captain knows the local waters like the back of his hand and is familiar with he fishing methods that work best.

All trips come inclusive with lures, quality gear, and tackle, but you are welcome to bring your own. When available, you will also be provided with live bait. When you come back to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to jump straight into the frying pan.

About the Captain

Member since March 2017
Been fishing since I could hold a fishing pole and have been hooked every since. Now I get the privilege of taking others to enjoy the great outdoors and making memories with their family and friends and giving them a fishing experience of a lifetime. There is nothing like seeing a child or even a grown up catching a fish for the first time and watching the excitement of what it's like to truly enjoy the being out on the water. I got the name Always An Adventure because it is one thing you can count on when fishing with me. A true Adventure in the beautiful waters that God has created.

My wife and I booked a half day trip with Captain Dale and just absolutely loved it!  His website mentioned two things we liked; It’s always an adventure,  and a note about enjoying the,waters and what God has created.  We caught some great fish and laughed a ton.  Captain Dale took care of everything and we just had a great day!  I won’t fish with anyone else the next time we are down here.  Thanks again for the great time!

Thank you as well, I really enjoyed having y’all aboard and look forward to fishing with you and your family again someday in the near future. Next time we can get that monster redfish that was on your line in the boat’ (The one that got away) Lol. And I promise to keep the secret about the invisible line in the water when the wife was fishing” shhhhh. And not sure which prayer she said to make the fish start biting like they did but PLEEEEZZZZZ tell her to teach it to me.  Again Thank you again for giving ME (Always An Adventure Fishing Guide Service ) the opportunity in creating a TRUE and memorable fishing adventure for you on the beautiful waters of Corpus Christi TX…...  God Bless”

Being an avid freshwater fisherman, my husband was open to trying his luck at bay fishing and decided hiring a guide would be a practical move since we are novices at salt water fishing.
As our trip was scheduled the Saturday following Hurricane Harvey in Corpus Christi, we were expecting Captain Dale to cancel our reservation, but he had no such plans! Instead, he said “Come on down, there’s plenty of water around here for us” off we went, right into a memory of a lifetime!
We found an absolute pot of gold in Captain Dale! Not only did he put us spot on our fish targets, he was encouraging, fun, lighthearted, and just as excited as we were when the reels were singing! He guided my husband through both 30” + bull reds he caught, some crazy skip jacks that were insanely fun, and insured we reached our limit of speckled trout.
Captain Dale, we can’t thank you enough for making our experience a top notch one with your wonderful personality, skills, and profound knowledge of your trade and the water ways.
The bimini top to shelter us from the sun, and the wonderful music made the entire experience better than we could have imagined! We haven’t stopped telling our friends about how much fun we had! We cannot wait to do this again, and will absolutely schedule our next fishing adventure with Captain Dale…because, just as my husband said, it was hours of “fish on, and on, and on!
Thank you,Captain Dale, for the extra time you gave us, the amazing boat ride, the new nicknames, and especially for not shaming me for what i thought was my first catch as i tried to take off the bait!  LOL! Yeah, It happened…. which is exactly why I needed a guide!
CAPTAIN DALE ROCKS!  Now, go have some fun!

Everytime a charter is contracted with a new captain, the client always gets the following - bait, tackle, and a boat.  The one thing the client hopes for is that he will also get knowledge…knowledge by the captain of the waters being fished in and the areas where the fish are biting.  I can guarantee that Captain Dale Coffman knows his home waters, having fished in them for years.  We journeyed to three spots and caught fish in all three places where we wet our hooks.  We caught our limit of seatrout and redfish, the largest being just shy of 28 inches.  The good news was that we had to catch 50 other smaller fish to be able to keep the legal ones!  My son-in-law had never fished seawater before and Captain Dale went out of his way to make sure it was an exceptional first-time experience for him.  I appreciated that a lot.  Can’t say a single thing was negative for it was as eventful fishing trip as I’ve ever been on.  We would recommend Captain Dale Coffman to anyone and plan on contracting with him in the future for my two other sons-in-law.  I think they saw the pictures of the fish we caught and are looking at their calendars already!  Thanks, Captain Dale, for a great day on the waters.
