has lived on the South Texas Coast all his life and acquired his love of fishing at a very young age. He grew up in Corpus Christi where his father was a game warden for Texas Parks and Wildlife. Cliff frequently fished in the Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay areas as he continued to refine his technique in finding the “big fish.”
Cliff developed his fishing into a specialty and became a professional guide in 1983. He now enjoys sharing the “fishing experience” with many pleased customers. He is known for his expertise in using artificial lures and his ability to adapt to changing conditions when the need arises. In the winter and spring, he might wade fish from daylight until dark to bring in a trophy trout. In the summer and fall, he might drift fish or even use the trolling motor to work drop offs. Whatever changes arise, Cliff is prepared.
Cliff's major sponsors are: Maverick Boat Co., Seaguar, Mustad, Power Pro and Waterloo Rod Company, USA, Bass Assassin Lures, Yamaha Motor Corp., MotorGuide, Ronnie's Marine, Mirrolure, Costa Del Mar Sunglasses and SmartShield Sunscreen.
