Great knowledge of the area and what bait to use. Went out of his way to make sure we caught and enjoyed ourselves! Super friendly and we enjoyed the whole experience! When we come back he will be our Captain again!

If you’re looking for hospitality and a great experience look no further than Captain Russ Wheeler.  He is so concerned about you having a great experience and goes out of his way to make sure it happens.  Very relaxed, knowledgeable, personable and just a great guy.  Would totally recommend him to anyone and we will certainly be back!!!!

Captain Russ Wheeler has over 25 years experience fishing the South TX region and every bit of it was tested during our trip. Before we hit the water we knew it was going to be a tough day fishing, with 20 mph winds and muddy water. But this did not discourage Captain Russ. He was still able to locate the fish and I was still able to catch my limit of speckled trout.

It was a pleasure to have Brian and Cassie on board today. Got a few nice trout then called it a day when the outside temp came up. Thank you for fishing with us. Tight lines!!

We had a great trip with Captain Wheeler. He was a very patient instructor for all of us and even spent a few extra hours on the water sop we could land more fish! Will be using his service in the future.

Captain Russ is truly first class!  He went the extra mile to make sure a hot and slow day of fishing turned into great experience for my 12 year old son and I. We went home with our limit and enjoyed fresh trout for dinner.  Very patient and good with kids ... highly recommended.

Thank you for the nice compliments John. It was a pleasure to have you both for the day. Glad we finally caught all the trout with your son getting his personal best. Until next time. Tight lines!!!
