Corpus Christi Bay fishing, including Laguna Madre, Baffin Bay and the surrounding waters – is a great way to spend your day outdoors. And there’s no better Corpus Christi private fishing guide than Joshua Mettlach’s Guide Service.

Captain Joshua is at the helm of a beautiful new 24’ Blazer bay boat powered by a 300 HP Evinrude engine. The boat is fitted with all USCG Certified Safety equipment, the latest in GPS navigational electronics, as well as casting platform and live well. There is plenty of space for your group of up to six anglers to fish in comfort.

Half day and full day inshore fishing trips are available with Josh Mettlach’s Guide Service (these typically run 4 or 8 hours). Get ready to go fishing with light tackle, jigging, popping, drift fishing or bottom fishing while we target Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout, as well as Black Drum. Whether we’re fishing around Baffin Bay, or the grass flats of the lower Laguna, Captain Josh will put you on the fish!

All trips come with Shimano and custom-made rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. Captain Josh will also clean and fillet your catch so that you could take it home with you and enjoy a nice fresh fish dinner! You will need to bring a hat or visor, sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, a camera, and – MOST IMPORTANTLY: a valid State of Texas fishing license which can be purchased prior to your fishing trip.

All levels of anglers are welcome to join Captain Josh; and children ages 6 and older can join the fun! As a local Corpus Christi fisherman who has spent thousands of hours mastering the waters of the Gulf Coast, Captain Josh is an excellent teacher and shares his passion for fishing. Don’t hesitate – book your next Corpus Christi inshore fishing trip with Captain Joshua’s Guide Service today!
