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.
