Captain Dewitt Thomas has been fishing for over half a century and has been guiding groups around Port Isabel for well over 30 years. Captain Dewitt started out working on a Shimp boat in Port Isabel way back in 1962, but made the move to guiding to best share his local waters with as many people as possible. He will do everything possible to make your trip perfect, from letting you choose a custom start time to picking you up from local waterfront locations. He's here to make your trip perfect, and to make sure you catch a ton of fish!
