Captain
Ruben Riojas

Member since April 2015 Port Mansfield, United States
Background
I am licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and Texas Park and Wildlife Department for the past 12 years. As a child I grew up fishing and learning from my father and grandfather. Since then I have developed a passion for fishing. I wanted to share my experience on the water with other people.
Techniques
I prefer to use artificial lure but I do make accommodations to use live bait. I love the top water bite, just that explosion on the lure is awesome. Sight casting at red fish is a blast.
