Wether it's your first boat ride, or even if you are an experienced angler - Capt Chad Kraft is the way to go!! He knows the Bay area like the back of his hand, and where to find the fish! Highly recommend his fishing guide services for anyone!

Getting around on shore can be tricky, we spent a little time the first day watching people come and go to see where it was safe to drive. It is well worth it to pay a guide for a trip out into the bay. The harbor is very convenient and easy to find

It's the first time I have fished Matagorda in June, so I have no basis for comparison. This was a fun outing, even though the bite was tough. FWIW, I would do it again tomorrow with this guide. Very fun time.

Very good time of year to fish, right when the water is starting to get warmed up

Be prepared for rain, but bring sunscreen it’s gonna be hot. So go early in the morning.

Book a trip with Captain Steve and his team. I highly recommend booking a fishing trip with Gulf Coast Yaker.

Book with Captain Chappy. He is a great guy and guide. He will definitely put you on the fish. We will definitely book with him again.

From what I hear fishing is always good here. Try to check the weather, the wind can affect the fishing.

Find a good guide because they put in the hard work of finding where the fish are biting.

The facilities and bay are nice. The Reds were a little better target than trout at this point.

Matagorda is known for great inshore fishing. Sunscreen fishing shirts, hat and get out there.
