We had a great trip! Captain Donny put us on fish and gave us tips. He’s very personable. We limited on Black Drum.

Capt Donny was awesome! He was great with my 6 yo son and so fun to be around. He also knew some good spots for reds and got us on some on a tough day for fishing.  -Trent

We had previously booked a trip with another outfitter and that trip was cancelled last minute due to boat issues. So at 6:00 AM on a busy weekend morning we asked around for referrals from other outfitters that we had used and others who were waiting on clients for the day to arrive. One of the outfitters contacted Captain Donny (who had a client cancel on him at the last minute and put us together). We were very happy with the way that worked out because Captain Donny kept us in BIG fish all day long. We caught Reds up to 32 inches and Trout up to 22 inches and had a great time all around. Captain Donny was extremely knowledgeable about where the fish were and what it took to catch them. He was also very helpful in giving us tips and pointers to improve our odds of catching fish and was very personable as well. We had fished in the area enough to know that this was a tough day to fish (as many guides were getting skunked). We couldn't have been happier about how the day turned out and will add this guide service to our regular "Go-To" guides on future trips.

Don is a great person to fish with. He works hard for you to bag you limit if possible. He provided a great trip for Richard's 63 Birthday.

Had a blast on this fishing trip. We caught fish the entire day. I would highly recommend Donny for anyone looking to have fun catching fish. We will be back to catch some more fish with Donny next trip.

Amazingly helpful and laid back. It was my first time in the bay and he made me want to move to Rockport. Great guy, had a great time.

Captain Donny was very accommodating and we limited out on all of the targeted fish species! If you are looking for a fun, down-to-earth, knowledgeable fishing guide, then here is your man! We WILL be back.
