Meet Captain Charlie Ives

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 fish!!!

Capt. Charlie's Current Fishing Report:  May 15, 2014

You never know what the weather will be in South Texas, but a cold front on May 13th is a little bit extreme!!! The winds have been changing directions every few days and when that happens, the fish are constantly on the move. Forget about fishing in the same spot; they are not going to be there! The good news is, after May 17th, the winds should stay the same direction, (South, Southeast), and Mother Nature should calm down. Croaker are now in bait stands (May 12), but are small and nobody is catching limits of trout yet, but we expect them to show any day. Now for the good news! The Reds are here and they are big and beautiful!!! We are limiting out frequently and if the last few weeks' stringers are any indication, it is going to be a great summer! If you want to go fishing for Speckled Trout, Black Drum and Redfish, don't wait any longer; call me now! The summer is booking up quickly and you don't want to miss taking it "To The Limit" with Captain Charlie!!!
If we can't take you on the day you want to go, then I will personally book a good guide to take care of you, so give me a call!!!

Tips on 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.
