Laguna Madre Guide Service

1066 e FM
Riviera TX, United States

Laguna Mare Guide Service offers exciting adventures on the waters of the lagoon and Baffin Bay, Texas. The company is run and operated by Captain Zach, a professional guide, who is passionate about everything outdoors. Join him on his day out for a fun and productive experience. Like everybody says, it’s a lot better to be on the bay than in the office!

Zach will take you out aboard a 22-foot Blue Wave center console, which is a stable and well-maintained boat. It comes powered by a 150 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine and is prepared for the current bite. The vessel provides comfortable fishing space for up to six anglers and is rigged with modern navigational electronics and safety equipment. There is a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride, as well as outriggers, an ice-box for the catch, and a live well loaded with bait.

Whether you want to fish the waters of Baffin Bay or enjoy the thrill of fishing the Laguna Madre, Captain Zach will work hard to help you make a great catch possible. The trips are from four to eight hours on the water. Choose the trip that suits you best, take your family and friends, and get ready for some rod-bending action. Your main targeted species will include Redfish, Black Drum, Speckled Trout, and Flounder.

Captain Zach is great with kids so feel free to bring your child with you. After all, there’s nothing better than seeing a child’s smile when they land their first ever fish!

All trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures. You will need to purchase a license prior to the trip. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and filleted. You can feel free to bring your own drinks and food with you.

After spending four years in the United States Marine Corps, I returned back to Northern Minnesota to pursue my passion for fishing. After running a successful Guide Service in northern Minnesota, I sold it and started up Laguna Madre Guide Service in South Texas. I enjoy shallow water fishing.
