Capt. Luis (Lou) Gonzalez Guide

Doubloon Street
Corpus Christi TX, United States

Capt. Luis (Lou) Gonzalez Guide invites you on an unforgettable shallow water adventure in Corpus Christi, Texas. Captain Lou runs this charter with a lot of love of fish and the shallow waters he knows impeccably. He is a multi-winning tournament guide who loves a good fishing challenge as much as he loves taking guests out on the water.

Your fishing adventure will take place in the inshore waters of Corpus Christi including the Lower Laguna Madre, Land Cut, Baffin Bay, and the Upper Laguna Madre. Using artificials and dead bait, when needed, you will target Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum, which are Captain Lou’s specialty. You will also have a chance to target Flounder when they are in season.

Captain Lou will take you fishing aboard a 23-foot Shoalwater saltwater fishing boat originally built in 2016. Powered by a 300 HP Evinrude G2 engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 54 knots, this boat is a beast on the water. It is very efficient in getting you to and from the fishing destination, and when changing the productive spots.

The vessel is equipped with the necessary USCG-approved safety equipment such as life jackets and a CPR-trained crew. It also has a fishfinder and a GPS to help locate the schooling fish, a wireless trolling motor for the super shallow water, and an icebox for your catch.

Capt. Luis (Lou) Gonzalez Guide provides all the fishing gear needed to make your trip successful. You will have rods, reels, tackle, lures, and a fish cleaning and filleting service at the end of your trip.

Captain Lou is able to accommodate kids, beginners, and seasoned anglers, as well as those who want to fish competitively. He says: “Come on down and let’s have some fun!”.

Josh and his family were a pleasure to have on the boat. Conditions were not great but they did not give up. They fished hard and caught some dinner. Thank you for fun memories and laughs. It was a pleasure. Hope to see you guys soon.
