For a first-class fishing experience, navigate the waters of the Gulf Coast Capital with a guide by your side. Fishing guides have years of experience with extensive knowledge of the waters, fish patterns, and more.

Since they spend an extended amount of time fishing, they can tailor your experience to ensure that you get the most out of your trip. All you need is a valid fishing license, polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, and some snacks. To find the best guide for you, browse social media, stop by a local marina to inquire about their in-house guides, or simply read along for some great suggestions.

Things to know before booking a guide:  
  • A fishing License is required for all trips. 
  •  Wear polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, and breathable clothing. 
  • There’s no guarantee on which fish species you will catch, or how many.  
  • Departure and fishing locations, as well as party size, will vary by guide. 
  • Most fishing guides will provide you with rods, tackle, and bait. Always check prior to your trip to be safe.  
  • Check with your guide prior to bringing food and snacks.
