Kids Love to Fish!  It's a great way for family to reconnect and Capt. Chad has a special and patient way with young children.  He provides a different kind of trip for them and the whole family - one that allows them to catch fish and have lots of fun, long before the weather gets to them and they become drained from the wind and sun. They learn to catch fish while being entertained and educated about the eco-system, different types of fish and the marine life they encounter out on the dolphins playing and birds they'll see.  It's an adventure they won't soon forget - everyone has fun and comes back with plenty of fish!

It was a tough October due to all the fresh water and high tides for us! So many fish escaped in October should be more flounder available for flounder run starting December 1st. Towards the end of 2018 I was seeing an abundance of flounder, redfish and trout fry, as well as juvenile fish. For the month of February remember fish the conditions you are given for the day don't get stuck on a location. Just because they were there yesterday doesn't mean they are there today. We generally are still getting cold fronts so be prepared to go to drop offs near the flats but for the most part the Redfish will be holding over shallow water mid day getting some sun then dropping down to drop offs during the night. Redfish this time of year are picky eaters one day they want cut mullet the next peeled shrimp if you're fishing bait.

Whether you're looking for a relaxing day of fishing with the family or need to hire an experienced and successful tournament fishing guide, Capt. Chad Verburgt will share his knowledge with you and show you winning techniques to catch a whole lot of fish while having fun!


Redfish: Also known as red drum, this fish has large, distinguishable spots on the upper part of the tail.  Fun to catch and even better to eat.  Many of the local restaurants will cook your catch for you!

Speckled Trout:  One of the most popular sport fish along the Texas coast.  Its willingness to hit natural/artificial baits make the species extremely popular with rod and reel anglers  Rod-benders!

Flounder: These flat fish are one of the most delectable fish to eat.  These unique fish are caught at night in the late fall and early spring month (except for the month of November).
