Saltwater Fishing has always been my
passion. I have been fishing the Texas Coastal Bend since I was 11
years old, just big enough to rope-start a 20 hp motor. I carried my
catch to the house in a "Red Flyer" wagon, often selling it on the
way home to help pay the bills. When I got older, I commercial
fished many years with my father. San Antonio Bay, Copano Bay,
Aransas Bay, Redfish Bay, Corpus Christi Bay, and Nueces
Bay became my backyard playground, and Redfish, Speckled Trout,
Black Drum, Flounder and Sheepshead became my friends. In 1989 I
earned my US Coastguard License, got my Guide License with Texas
Parks and Wildlife, and over the years have become a top notch South
Texas Fishing Guide. Unlike most guides, I fish full time and year
round. I have lived in Aransas Pass nearly all my life, and fish the
bays and flats
of Port Aransas, Rockport, Ingleside, Aransas Pass and Corpus
Christi. Last year I met the love of my life - a brand new 24.2 ft
Tran Cat with a 250 E-Tec! It allows me to fish all those shallow
places where most boats don't dare go. She goes with me everywhere I
go and is the only one on earth that knows all my secret fishing
holes. As you can see...
I love to

Charlie's Current Fishing Report: April 1, 2016
If Spring Break was any indication, this
year is going to be a busy one! Daily trips during spring break,
along with daily limits of Redfish and a trout or two, made fishing
great even with all the boats on the water. Baitfish are coming in
early this year; we are seeing shad in the channels and although
they are still small, croaker are already here! So get ready to
catch some trout! Beautiful weather is here, so get out the suntan
lotion, book a trip, and come on down!
Looking forward to another great year of
fishing and we'll see you soon!
then... Tight Lines Everyone!!
(Check out my
Facebook page for regular pics of our fishing trips )

Choosing Your Fishing Guide
Choosing a fishing guide
can be a very bewildering experience. There are lots of guides out
there. Some are very good at
what they do, but many have
little or no experience fishing this area. As the saying goes; "You
get what you pay for." My advice when looking at websites is look at
the pictures! Are there good trout, redfish and drum stringers? Do
they fish a variety of bays? How long have they been fishing in THIS
area? I have seen lots of guides come and go trying to make a living
fishing. Anyone can catch fish when the fishing is good. I take a
lot of pride in that I very seldom miss putting my clients on a
decent stringer of fish.
