A USCG licensed Capt and Texas Parks & Wildlife licensed and Insured Saltwater Guide.
I began my outdoor experience hunting and fishing at a young age. As I aged, fishing became my focus. My experiences in fishing have taken me from Texas, The Florida Keys, Colorado, Washington State, California, Oregon, Alaska and The Bahamas.
As a full time resident of Rockport, Texas I have the opportunity to spend numerous days on the water. By spending time on the water I have the ability to establish fishing patterns, based on Tidal movement, weather and wind conditions.
I am a member of the Coastal Bend Guides Association, CCA , GRTU (Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited) and The Rockport Fly Fishers and the Rockport Chamber of Commerce. While I had been fishing on the Texas Coast all of my Life. About 25 years ago, the fly fishing bug caught my attention and I decided to fly fish the saltwater in and around Rockport Tx. Fly fishing and wading the shallow flats and bays have become my passion.
While I still use conventional techniques to fish the Texas Coast, I love to educate and expose people to my favorite sport of fly fishing. The idea of wade fishing and getting away from the confines of the boat is remarkable. Stepping into nature and putting yourself one-on-one with the fish is exhilarating!
I Have had the opportunity to Guide for several Local Tournaments in 2013, including 2013 Babes on the Bay with 1400 entries . The team I guided finished 2nd place Heaviest Red Fish. The 2013 OINK Inc. Tournament . This team finished 3rd place heaviest stringer. The Warriors Weekend Heroes Cup with the team finishing 3rd place Heaviest Over sized Red Fish. Our Final Tournament for 2013 was the Camp Aranzazu "Zazu" Tournament benefitting people with special needs and chronic conditions. The team finished 1st place heaviest Redfish. I look forward to competing with these organization's again in 2014.
I try to make fishing fun; the way it was when we were kids--"catching" is the bonus!
I named my boat
s for what we sometimes all need, a "Latitude Adjustment"
Is it time for yours?
The Boat: I have a VIP 22 foot Bay Stealth center console with a 150 HP Yamaha outboard to get us to the fishing spots in the open bay and flats.
