Tooth And Scale Guide Service LLC

Tooth And Scale Guide Service invites you to join Captain Dusty for an unforgettable Texas inshore fishing adventure out of Aransas Pass. Captain Dusty fishes all the local bays and will do his best to make sure you get the most out of your trip, whether you’re a fishing newcomer or experienced angler.

He will take you fishing on his 24’ Blue Wave bay boat that’s powered by a single 225 HP Suzuki engine. This boat takes up to 4 prospective anglers and is equipped with all the necessary safety and navigation gear you’ll need for a fun and productive trip.

The inshore waters are home to a variety of fish species, including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and more. When the weather allows for it, you can also head further offshore to catch Kingfish, Cobia, or Sharks. It’s good fishing during the entire year, so you can drop by at any time.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of a trip. After the trip is over, Captain Dusty will clean and fillet the catch for your convenience. All you need to do is bring a valid Texas fishing license, bring some snacks and a pair of polarized sunglasses, and you’re ready to make some great memories!

I grew up in North Texas fishing the lakes for Bass. I was 5 years old when I got my first taste of saltwater fishing on a family vacation to Galveston. It was at that moment that I knew the Texas coast was where I belonged. I moved to Aransas Pass area in 2010 and began making friends with the local fishing guides in the area. I was fortunate to learn from some of the best and cut my learning curve in half. I am currently a full time EMT on Mon & Tues and fishing guide on the weekends. My true passion is being on the water. All of my down time at the EMS station is spent looking at tidal charts and studying Google Earth for that slight change in structure that will make all the difference between catching fish and not on those tough days. I am a go-getter and will work hard to put my clients on fish. A bad day of fishing will never be from lack of effort on my end. I genuinely care about my clients having the best day possible. Thank you for considering Tooth And Scale Guide Service.
