Good Fishing Guides Aren't Cheap and Cheap Fishing Guides Aren't Good

I now have a boat that can take 6 to 10 Anglersfishing and a Party Boat that can take up to 50 people for a dinner cruise, birthday party or just Party at Party Cove.

Must be booked 14 days in advance.  

What our Fishing Trips Include

We will be fishing from a 2014, 25 foot Custom built Majek XTreme Powered by a 250 Horse Power 4 Stroke Yamaha with a large Bimini top and all the latest fish catching equipment.

Our Fishing Trips Include All Tackle, Rod and Reels and Ice to keep your Catch cool. All you need to bring is your Texas Fishing License, some drinks, snacks and a cooler for your fish. We welcome anglers of all skill levels and corporate-multi boat trips.We can take up to 10 anglers per boat. 

Why do fishing charters cost so much?

Maintaining and operating a safe, properly outfitted top of the line fishing boat is expensive and today’s fuel costs alone are staggering. There are many additional costs that one never sees on a guided fishing trip. For example, charter insurance, license, bait, boat maintenance, and many other factors.

You get what you pay for in charter boats, and I strive to keep my costs down to give you the best value in the area. The excitement of chartering your own guide, catching fish and having a tremendous on water experience while making memories to last a lifetime… is well worth the expense.

What should I bring with me on the boat?
Depending on the length of your trip consider bringing food, camera, hat, sun block, fishing license.
To get yours click here: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/business/licensesand a rain jacket if the weather looks like it could rain.You can bring your own ice chest or my boat is equipped with an ice chest for your food and drinks. If you would like to keep a few fish or all of your fish for dinner you might consider a small cooler to keep in your vehicle for the trip home.

Cancellation Policy:

I normally take a $100 deposit by credit card over the phone. You can cancel any trip 14 days in advance and pay no fee. All trip cancellations must be submitted in writing and e-mailed to Capt.Steve@sanantoniofishingguides.com

Trips canceled after 14 days are charged as follows, $100 fee for a four hour trip, $150 for a six hour trip and $200 for a eight hour trip. Refunds will not be returned until the day of your scheduled trip and can take up to 30 days to show up on your statement. If you fail to show up for a fishing charter and do not contact Capt. Steve, your deposit will not be returned and you will be charged the full amount for the trip. If the captain cancels the trip due to weather or other reasons, you will receive a complete refund or the deposit is applied toward a rescheduled date.

Due to outstanding weather and excellent fishing, our calendar is always crowded. To ensure availability of the dates of your choice, booking at least two weeks in advance is recommended during the spring and summer months. Remember, it’s often better to fish on weekdays to avoid the the boat traffic.

An important part of each fishing trip ensures that Capt. Steve Nixon provide you with a courteous, professional, enjoyable and memorable fishing experience. As a result if you require access facilities, have special needs or want to target a specific fish let me know in advance. Remember, you normally catch more fish if you go after what is biting. So, to help make your trip a success, please communicate your wishes and needs to Captain Steve Nixon prior to the trip.
