Guide Recommendations?

Hi all. I'm looking for some guide recommendations for Galveston, Matagorda, and Sabine areas. The guides I have been out with so far have been good at finding fish, but have been more focused on getting limits and going back. I would like people who don't mind staying out more than 4 hours. I fish for sport more than meat, so I don't really care much about getting limits and going home. Also, looking for people who are flexible and good with both live bait and artificials. Any recommendations are appreciated.

He will do anything from Hard Core wading for trophy trout to taking newbs out and fishing bait for limits. Good dude.

Are you communicating your desires to the guides when you hire them? I have found that most will fish the way you want (within reason) if you tell them up front. If not, hire someone who will. Just my 2 cents...

I always try my best to communicate what I'm looking for. I've fished with well over 50 different guides in many different places so I have a good idea of the range. Some are flexible and some pretty much do things the same way they always do them no matter what. I was very clear with the last two about wanting to stay out longer (and said I was willing to pay for it) but both were very antsy to get back after 4 hours. I'm just looking for recommendations for people who are great fishermen and are not clock watchers. I had a great experience recently with Jeremy Chavez; he definitely fits that description. However, he is fairly specialized and doesn't always fish in this area so I'm looking for other options.

Make sure they know that you expect eight hours or whatever the "day" is. I usually outlast my clients especially during the summer. If you start thumping them early in the morning and continue catching clients will get worn out and want to come inn a lot of times. We (guides) should really try and give as much time on the water as we can given the rates that we are charging. Just my opinion.
