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.

Johnny and Marcus – The Guides of Texas

We believe that fishing and exploring wild waters brings people back into a natural state of being.

  We seek to explore waters using muscle power and our wits to catch fish.  We pride ourselves in offering the very best in guide to client attention.  We feel that fishing trips should be personal challenges and fish caught should be respected.  We believe in using fine gear, that is well designed, beautiful and gets us closer to the fish we love.  We like to sit quietly for a few moments to observe our natural surroundings and see what lessons are presented to us.  We enjoy reflecting on the day over good beer.  We speak of lessons learned and of adventures experienced.  We believe that fishing is a mix of skill, instinct, fate, and luck.  We strive for the days when we are natural and in the moment.  We look to finally stop asking questions and just live the answer….fishing.

The Guides of Texas live to guide anglers through “The Wilds of Texas”. We offer trips down beautiful Texas Hill Country Rivers and on the isolated shores of South Padre Island.
