5 stars isn’t enough in this instance. There are guides who simply take your money to let you fish and there is JC. Had an amazing time today and actually learned a ton from him. On top of this, he was phenomenal with our three sons. Patience with a great sense of humor makes for an awesome time. On his airboat, we went places no one else could get to and landed a ton of reds. We are still laughing at the things we did today. I highly recommend JC and will become a repeat client.Bucky Williams

Red Drum are one of Texas most popular sport fish and the state’s most wide spread estuarine fish. They can be spotted by their trademark black dot at the base of the tail, sometimes several of them. It is cousins with the black drum. Distinguish the black drum by the barbels under the chin. Red drum often have a coppery tone, generally inshore, while others, usually in the ocean, are more silvery. They reach maturity after three years. Red drum are also known as redfish, puppy drum, channel bass, bull red and rat red.
The spotted seatrout, commonly called speckled trout, is one of the most popular sport fish along the Texas coast. Its abundance, willingness to hit natural and artificial baits, and fine eating qualities make the species extremely popular with anglers. It has been commercially harvested in all the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico. However, a decline in harvest of spotted seatrout in recent years caused Alabama and Texas to close commercial fishing of the species. In Texas, the record spotted seatrout caught was 37.25 inches and 15.6 pounds.
All flatfishes, including the southern flounder, are compressed laterally and spend most of their life lying and swimming along the bottom on their side. In the case of southern flounder, the left side is always the “up” side; in other species, the opposite is true. Small flounder grow rapidly and may reach 12 inches in length by the end of their first year. Males seldom exceed 12 inches, but females grow larger than males and often reach a length of 25 inches.
