2 Years Experience
Fishing has peaked Captain Joaquin's interest from an early age. He grew up fishing with family (uncles and cousins) and then he started sharing his knowledge with friends.

Not only has fishing become a passion and hobby for him, but it has also taught him to be patient, persistent, and have an analytical mindset. The skills Captain Joaquin has acquired overtime have led him to become a seasoned fisherman and great captain. His hobby and favorite sport is almost an everyday activity for him and he wishes to share his knowledge with both inexperienced and experienced fishers. From personal fishing to group fishing and even family fishing trips, he will take you to the hottest spots in search of Red, Trout, Black Drum, or anything else you might be looking for that can be found near South Padre Island.
