Captain
Bill Bough

Member since June 2017 South Padre Island, United States
Background
Grew up fishing with my dad and brothers on lakes and rivers around Dallas. After I married, my wife Pat and I began fishing couples, team, and I fished some pro/am Bass tournaments. We fell in love with coastal flats fishing after visiting South Texas over 20 years ago and decided to make it our home.
Techniques
I spend lots of hours on the water whether I'm booked or not so I have the time to catch fish on artificial bait but mostly I want my customers to catch fish. So, sometimes its easier to fish live or cut bait catch fish and have fun
