Went fishing on Tuesday, June 20, 2017

We had a pretty good time overall. The boat was great. The captain was good too. Little inexperienced as a guide but overall he took us several different places to try and find fish. We caught 3 keeper trout and 1 Redfish.

Went fishing on Thursday, January 5, 2017

Tony was very knowledgeable about the waters and his equipment. I thought that it was going to be a hassle to take my nine year old daughter fishing but Tony made sure that she felt like the whole day was all about her. He let her reel in every fish and when we were done fishing, he took us to see the wild dolphins. I left South Padre island feeling like I had made a friend for life and I would highly recommend this to anyone.

I did a half day morning trip with Tony. We caught dozens of speckled trout in the southern Laguna Madre. He took me to a Cajun restaurant after the trip, and they cooked the trout fillets for our lunch.

Tony has shown me that he is not only passionate about fishing the Gulf and the Laguna but he knows his stuff. I learned so much from him in so little time. No matter if it’s offshore or bay fishing or wading Tony will put you on fish day or night. I highly recommend his services.
