Guide Services

SPI "Fish On" Guide Service is a Lower Laguna Madre fishing charter service based in South Padre Island, Texas.  I offer an extensive charter area that ranges from South Padre Island to Port Mansfield.  Our targeted species include, but are not limited to, redfish, speckled trout, flounder and snook.  My charters depart out of the locally famous "Parrot Eyes",  where I am proud to be part of their highly respected family of charter captains.  "Parrot Eyes" is a longtime favorite island restaurant, bar & watersports establishment that offers something for everyone in the family. 

I run a 24 ft. Dargel Attack-A-Flat powered by a Suzuki 250SS and I provide top quality equipment for your charter.  My 28 plus years of experience allow me to offer all of the following approaches to fishing:

> Artificial Lure Fishing
> Bait Fishing (Live & Natural)
> Site Fishing

I consider myself to be a very versatile guide and therefore strive to offer personally designed charters.  I believe that each charter should be planned based on my customer’s fishing goals and skill level.  Over the years I have chartered highly seasoned anglers who's only need is for me to put them on the fish.  I have also often had the privilege of introducing the sport to youngsters and first timers who require a lot of individual attention and coaching.  It is hard for me to say which is my favorite.  One thing is for sure.....from the novice to the expert, together, we will design a charter that will optimize your fishing experience.
