Captain
Paco Hinojosa

Member since January 2015 South Padre Island, United States
Background
Capt. Paco is a USCG licensed guide that has been fishing the waters of Laguna Madre for over 30 yeas. He started fishing with father and grandad, and has fished professionally for the past decade. Capt. Paco likes trying out new techniques and styles to hone his skills. He loves having people onboard and enjoys taking them around these waterways to catch some nice fish. He enjoys seeing people get thrilled when they reel in the fish.
Techniques
I offer drift fishing, wade fishing, top water action, structure fishing, or bottom fishing with artificial and/or bait depending on what the day demands, but I prefer to drift fish with artificial. Sight casting for red drum is real fun too.
