Ruffling Feathers Guide Service

Capt. Brandon Kendrick Port O'Connor, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Based out of Port O’Connor, Ruffling Feathers Guide Service offers the best flats fishing in all of Texas! We know all the best spots for inshore fishing this wonderful destination. From chasing big game fish to wade fishing for Speckled Seatrout and Redfish we have you covered. 


Captain Brandon Kendrick will be leading the way on your coastal Texas fishing charter. Captain Brandon started fishing with his family at a very young age. Over the years, he fell in love with the great sport of fishing and nothing makes happier than being out on the water. Capt. Brandon loves sharing his knowledge and passion for fishing with all of his clients. Capt. Brandon welcomes everyone on all of his trips. 


Your outdoor fishing adventure with Capt. Brandon will begin in Port O’Conner and could go on to search the waters near Indianola, Magnolia Beach, Olivia, Point Comfort, Port Lavaca, and many other wonderful locations in the Matagorda Bay and Espiritu Santo Bay. 


Capt. Brandon’s 21ft Shoalwater skiff is perfect for inshore and flats fishing in Texas. She is powered by a 250hp Yamaha engine and can glide through the skinny waters of the flats with ease. This fishing vessel is spacious enough for 4 guests and there is plenty of room to cast. You will find all the latest safety, navigational, and fish finding equipment on board. 


We offer full day boat and wade fishing trips. On our boat trips, we take a boat ride to look for signs of “fishy activity” as much as our other types of fishing. We anchor upwind or up current and stay in the boat. Usually in this type of fishing we use live or dead bait to coax our fish into eating. On our wade fishing trips, we will hop out of the boat once we arrive at our fishing destination and spread out with our favorite baits and cover the area. Please bring a valid Texas fishing license with you before the trip. 


On our trips, you can expect to see the likes of Redfish, Kingfish, sheepshead, Tarpon, flounder, Jack Crevalle, Sharks, Trout, and Spanish Mackerel.


Join Ruffling Feathers Guide Service and Capt. Brandon Kendrick on an unforgettable Texas fishing charter you will talk about for the rest of your life!
