TESTIMONIALS

We are not naming each guide in the testimonials here, but rather giving you an idea of what you can expect with any of the guides we have hand picked to run out of Fisherman’s Wharf.

I wanted to book a surprise trip for my husband for our anniversary but had no idea what to do. I called Fisherman’s Wharf and Tray listened to what I thought my husband might want, then set us up our trip. Tray’s suggestion could not have been more right. He got our fishing trip booked and it was great. It was very calm that morning and we went and fished for speckled trout in the surf. We caught so many fish my arms hurt and my husband had a huge smile for the rest of the weekend. It was perfect. Thanks so much!

I took my two boys fishing for the weekend to target redfish and could not have had a better time! My boys are just getting into fishing and now they are hooked! We didn’t bring our own equipment, but the guide had first class rods/reels and tackle on the boat and was a very good teacher for my sons. They are begging us to go back to Port A and fish again as it made their summer.

We had a wonderful day fishing last weekend. We arrived a little late in the morning after a late night out, our guide greeted my buddy Chris and I at the dock and whisked us out of the harbor and right onto a bunch of drum and redfish. We caught fish till we limited out on both reds and drum, and he kept us laughing the whole time. Can’t wait to come back next year and do it again.

Having fished off of the jetties and the beach on past trips, this year we decided to go to Fisherman’s Wharf to book a private trip. We had a BLAST! We were able to get the attention that I wanted for my wife and kids and they can’t wait to come back next year. Best money spent on a whole week in Port Aransas.
