Background
Capt. Al Manica is an experienced USCG Licensed Captain/Merchant Marine Officer and PADI dive-master with over 20 years professional offshore experience running both fishing and scuba diving charters. He has a wealth of fishing guide knowledge and knows how to find the fish your looking for. In addition to running countless offshore fishing charters, Al has also been involved in historic oceanographic and archaeological research work.

Capt. Al is a personable fun loving individual and you can be sure that he and his deck hand will work hard at getting you over fish and have a fun time doing so. So scheduled your fishing date today and get out on those gorgeous Texas Gulf of Mexico waters and lets do some great fishing with Ultra Fishing Charters!

For these fishing trips, trolling and bottom fishing are preferred but other methods are also used depending on the type of fish targeted.
