Surf Fishing South Padre Island

There are a tremendous amount of things to look for when fishing the surf…let me say this again to let it sink in…there are a tremendous amount of things to look for when fishing the surf. Sometimes these things such as currents, clarity, and bait movement are easy to find. Other times, an angler can only focus on one or two things to see if he can catch a fish. Here is a quick listing from memory of some things that an angler can focus on when fishing the surf.

Fly Fishing the San Marcos River: Practice Makes Perfect

There is an old saying that people have heard millions of times:  Practice makes Perfect.  This is a true statement, whether one is practicing baseball, learning to fly a jet, operating on a heart, or most importantly (tongue planted firmly in cheek) making good casts with a fly rod.  Earlier this week, I guided Mario […]

Guided Fishing Trips in the Great State of Texas!

We are looking for a few more regular clients who would like a guided fishing trip. We are not looking for fishing experts. We are looking for anglers who enjoy the outdoors and are willing to explore the exciting fishing that Texas has to offer.

The Guides of Texas have been guiding anglers through “The Wilds of Texas,” since 1998. We have seen and learned so much from the landscape we explore and the people that we meet.  Since 1998 our lives, like the rivers we explore have changed dynamically.  We still live to fish, but throughout these many years, we have graduated college, pursued careers, other interests, married our sweethearts, and as far as my life is concerned I am raising three beautiful daughters. Johnny and I currently live in different parts of the state.  As a result, we have divided our fishing between the Texas Hill Country and the beautiful beaches of South Texas.  I am still exploring 1000 different river miles within the state.  On occasion, Johnny will join me on any trips with multiple people and or multiple days.  Johnny has taken on a new and exciting conventional and fly fishing opportunity located on South Padre Island.  He currently runs and guns the beach between South Padre Island and Port Mansfield.  Like rivers, the surf is full of currents, eddies, and structures that hold fish.  The numbers of different species of fish are more varied in saltwater and there is a fine line between predator and prey.  It is very common to see Jacks swimming in schools, tarpon rolling, and sharks lurking in the cuts.

New Clients

At this moment, we are looking for clients who are just like us…folks who live to fish, but also have families, jobs and other interests.  We are looking for anglers (novice and pros alike) who want to catch fish, but also enjoy the beauty of a sunset, hearing canyon wrens whistle from river side bluffs or seeing red colored white-tailed deer bounding through a maze of sand dunes. Our goal is not only to introduce people to a few fish, but to also gear this website to be user friendly, informative, and entertaining.  Johnny and I are looking to create stories and memories with our clients.  Whether our clients have a banner day or learn a life lesson, Johnny will burn the stories into digital media, and me with the written word. So, to all the folks out there who wish to go out and catch a few fish and live an adventure….this is our official invitation to come and join us to “Fish and Explore the Wilds of Texas.”
