We have used Captain Doug on a couple charters. He can get you on the fish. Always willing to share a story and help teach you what to use and where the fish are. We will definitely use him again!

My wife and I have been going to Rockport for years as we enjoy being around the water. I have fished many times for the big Speckeled Trout but my wife has never experienced it. I decided this trip I was going to make that happen. Through some references I was able to locate Doug Stanford and found out he was available. We stayed at the Lighthouse Inn in Rockport and he picked us up there. I will review the hotel in another review. Doug took us out around 630a and we fished to around noon. We did not do well at first but he was determined to have us catch some fish. I told him this was a first for my wife and it was my priority that she experience what a good guide trip should be. Doug took great pains in assisting her and helping to baiting her hook as well as landing the fish many large redfish and trout. We were able to catch our limit of redfish. I cannot say enough good things about this guide and this trip. If you want to experience what it is like to fish with a professional guide who will assist you in every way, this is your man. We will be returning in the near future for another fishing trip and we will book with Doug. I highly recommend him and his guide service…

Thank you for your review ! I had a lot of fun with them as well. Having fun is my priority when we fish , even when they don't bite.
