Fishing Guide Service in Corpus Christi

Welcome to Doc’s Fishing Clinic and Fishing Guide Service! If you’re wanting to hunt the drag-screaming bad boy redfish of South Texas with fly and light tackle, then you have come to the right place. South Texas has the perfect weather and year-round fishery to always be a great spot to sight cast world class redfish, speckled trout, flounder and black drum.

If you want to try your hand at fly fishing or are a seasoned warrior of the flats then the Doc is your guide. He provides all equipment needed as well as custom flies he has personally tied. If you want to bring your own fish-sticking rod that’s ok, just talk to the Doc beforehand to make sure you won’t be over or under gunned for Texas conditions.

The Doc put me on fish and I had a great time! Next time I'm in south Texas, I'll be fishing with him again for sure.

Trips & Pricing

The Doc has many trip options available; Full day, half day, morning, evening and night fishing. Sight casting will be the main technique used. The goal is see the fish before it sees you, making an accurate cast and present a fly or lure to the fish and watch as it explodes on the bait. There isn’t anything else like it, pure heart pounding action! Throughout the day he will be positioning his Ankona Shadowcast so you have the easiest cast possible. On most days we see between 50-100 fish, but casting accuracy, patience and being quiet is needed to catch fish.

To help you succeed in your day equipment you should bring is hat and a pair of polarized sunglasses. These two items are almost the most important gear in sight casting. They don’t need to be fancy just polarized. If you don’t have any just let the Doc know before the trip and he might have an old pair laying around. Light clothing in the summer months and warm layers and rain proof jacket in the winter is recommended.

The Doc provides all light tackle and fly equipment, tackle, and professional photography equipment. No need to bring a cooler for the boat. There is a 45 quart Yeti on the boat with iced down waters and plenty of room to bring more beverages and food if you want.

All rates are for one angler. Add $50 for additional angler. Should you have a larger party, the Doc works with multiple guides and can accommodate any party size.
