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. I fish out of a 240 SVT 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: June 2016

Hi Everyone ! The fishing has been awesome as the trout run is in full swing and we are also catching some redfish to go along with them ! We usually fish for trout early and then switch to redfish for awhile , that gives everyone a chance to experience both . My book is pretty full for June , I might have a couple of days left and July is beginning to fill up quite nicely , so if you are wanting a fishing trip with me give me a call donít wait. On another note I just replaced all my rods and reels and cushions on the boat and they sure are nice ! Hope to see you soon!

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.
