Captain Thomas will work with your group and have you fishing for the species that are actively biting.

Leave your worries at the dock as you board Captain Thomas’ 23ft center console. She can safely fish up to 4 anglers, not including Captain Thomas. Her versatile hull design allows you to fish in the shallow flats of Aransas Pass, as well as nearshore waters. On the bow of the boat you’ll find a wireless trolling motor, it’s used to quietly navigate the shallow waters without spooking the fish.

Before you’re able to hit the water with the Lone Star Inshore Guides, you’ll need to purchase a Texas Fishing license. They’re inexpensive and can be easily purchased online! You can place a deposit to reserve the date that’s going to work best for your group, Captain Thomas will be happy to answer any questions you may have about getting your fishing license.

  • Great Trip

    Created Tom Adams

    Highly recommended! I just wanted a fun fishing trip and not have to worry about anything, and that’s exactly what I got. I did way better than I thought I would thanks to the advice Tom gave me. Professional and knowledgeable. It was cool to see the dolphins too. One thing I will say is to take a hat, that sun will tear you up.

  • Rippin Lips!

    Created Walter Hass

    This was the best adventure and guide service I have ever been on. The knowledge of where the “big” ones are with the keen sense of what the schools are doing. This captain can just plain make your day, and dream of non stop catching fish come true. He accommodated my family and all caught fish. I believe my wife is hooked!!!!! Thank you Captain Tom for guiding us and letting us rip lips!!!!!

  • Planning On Comin Back!

    Created Chandler LeeNelson

    Met with Captain Tom this past Saturday and have to say the day turned out amazingly. I’d like to think I knew a something about fishing from past experience and YouTube videos- but let me tell you, this captain knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s knowledgeable of the surrounding areas he services, knows about the fish and the best methods to catch them as well as numerous honey holes full of fish. I had a great day on the water. My only recommendation is to where closed toe shoes because boy do your feet burn on the boat deck. Thanks Tom for the great time! Plan on doing this again.
