Robert Nuncio (Via Fishingbooker.com) I will start off by saying we had such a AWESOME TIME!! Captain Pierre was on top of his game when it came to the trip. We caught fish after fish and different types of fish. Went to spot after spot to make our trip awesome. If your wanting to book a trip. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CAPTAIN PIERRE WITH SOUTH BOUND CHARTERS. It makes the trip so much fun when everyone is laughing having a good time. I sincerely wanna THANK YOU CAPTAIN PIERRE. Until we return. Have a blessed one. And keep showing the people how to have a AWESOME TIME FISHING!!!!
Scott S. (Via Yelp) Had the honor of fishing with Captain Pierre. We had an AWESOME time not only catching fish, but having conversation and fellowship. I have been blessed to have fished for years and can say with confidence our trip was probably one of the very best and most memorable trips I have had. Captain Pierre has years of experience fishing these waters which I attribute to us catching our limit of speckled trout. My daughter and boyfriend are novice, but Captain Pierre is a great teacher and they quickly learned how it's done. We ended the day also with a Texas Slam (Trout, Flounder, and Redfish). Going fishing is more than just catching fish, it is also about enjoying being on the water with others. So if your looking for a quality guide with integrity, knowledge, experience and some fun, go with Captain Pierre.
Moses V. (Via Yelp) There isn't anyone we'd trust more with our clients or family than Capt. Pierre! If your looking for someone who knows the "when and where" the fish are, look no further! Great guide, very professional knows lots of great spots and sooo easy to get along with. Nothing worse than a snotty guide. This guy became family quick! If you want a guy who always goes the extra mile, go with Pierre at South Bound!
Debra L. (Via Yelp) Just spent half of a day on the water with Captain Pierre. Had a great day of fishing. Proceeded to catch a "Texas Slam!" Caught multiple species: black drum, sheep head, flounder, trout and red fish. Guess what's for dinner tonight? Highly recommend Pierre if you want to have a successful experience. Will definitely use his skills again.
Jake B. (Via Yelp) Captain Pierre was an awesome guide! We had a great time and maxed out on Black Drum, as well as catching a number of Speckled Trout, Red Fish, Sheepshead and several others. He took us to all the best spots and didn't disappoint. He was very knowledgeable and able to answer all the questions we had. He even cleaned/packaged all the fish and showed us how to filet them ourselves. It was interesting to hear all of Pierre's stories and get to know him, really cool dude! Wouldn't recommend any other guide!!
Stephanie (Via Google) Awesome experience! Pierre was an excellent guide! We caught our limit of trout and had a blast! We will definitely be using Southbound Fishing Charters again!
John Mitchell (Via Google) Really great fisherman, even better guy. Answered any questions I had and made the trip a very enjoyable experience. Would certainly recommend to anyone contemplating a trip.
Pete Moreno (Via Google) This is the 3rd fishing trip with Pierre and he again produced excellent results. We chanced the trip due to a storm going across the northern part of the state with chances of T-storms. The storms missed us, but the fish didn't. We maxed out on excellent size trout and black drum. I highly recommend Pierre, as an experienced guide with some outstanding fishing results. We will return to go after Red Drum in a few months. Great Trip/experience!
Chad Cedillo (Via Google) Really awesome and knowledgeable Captain, if you're looking to hook some redfish, sheep head, speckle trout, drum he's your man! Definitely going to be a returning customer. We hooked fish all day long and received plenty of help when needed. If you're looking for a fun filled fishing trip go ahead and give him a call.
Kristine Below (Via Google) We had a blast with Captain Pierre! He was the perfect combination of professional and personable. Our group of 3 varied from minimal fishing experience to very experienced, and Captain Pierre worked with all of us to provide the optimal fishing trip! He made sure we were always on the fish and caught our limit of trout and drum. A great 8-9 hour day full of fishing and sun and definitely worth the trip from Ohio. Can't wait to do it again!
Russell Kreig (Via Google) Really great captain! Knows right where the fish are and helps you every step of the way to ensure you catch the most fish! Some of the fish we caught were even tournament worthy, Which made our experience even better! He even helped take pictures for us and was constantly baiting our hooks so we didn't have to deal with any down time between casts. To make things better, he even cut and bagged our fish for us! Hands down will be a repeat customer!
Jennifer Guerrero (Via Google) Captain Pierre is definitely the greatest! We were a group of 4 mixed with both experienced and inexperienced people. He’s extremely knowledgeable and very informative for those who are not very experienced. He’s a super cool guy and helps in every way. If you want a fun filled day of fishing and are ready to catch a whole lot of fish then this guy will show you the way. The trip was a whole lot of fun and we will be booking again and again with only Captain Pierre. Be ready to catch big fish!
Mike Fasig reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star May 20, 2017 · First time Salt Water fishing and had a great day! The tug is the drug.. brought in plenty spotted trout, a couple drums and couple reds. Cpt Pierre was a great guide. Call 361-271-9870 and get hooked up!
Erin Pinckard reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star February 26, 2017 · Pierre took my husband, kids and I fishing. The kids had a blast and he was excellent with them! He put us on fish every spot we went and went above and beyond my expectations! I highly recommend anyone looking to take a guided trip to book with Cpt. Pierre!
Dave Steinbach reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star May 31, 2017 · We spent an outstanding day fishing with Captain Pierre Petrila. He knows his area like the back of his hand and works extremely hard to put you on fish. I can not imagine anyone who fishes with him not having a great time. Thank you again Captain Pierre! Yo will be my first call when I'm backing Corpus.
Geri Kohlschmidt reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star May 28, 2017 · Captain Pierre took myself and 3 brothers fishing yesterday and we had an awesome time. Very windy day with lots of chop and we still caught a lot of fish. Would recommend captain Pierre to friends and family. Plan to come back in September for more fishing.
Moses Vasquez reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star March 2, 2017 · Wow, Hands down the Best Fishing charter I've ever been on, and there have been a few. We didn't spend all day looking for fish we were on them and I felt we could of gone all day. No more room in the cooler is a good thing! Super professional Setup and Customer service is Top shelf! Cant wait to go back!
Eric Tamez reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star February 26, 2017 · New boat owner to the laguna. Hired Pierre to show me how to navigate safely through the area using my boat. Pierre gave me a thorough tour of the upper laguna, We had some hiccups with my boat and Pierre stayed patient and gave me pointers on how to avoid future disappointments. I did not hire him to fish, but he did not like that idea, He insisted that we make pit stops to fish and he put us on some monsters. It was an awesome day and I got way more than what I hired Pierre for. Absolutely recommend this service.
Anthony Laycock reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star June 11, 2017 · I've been on several charter trips around Corpus Christi and Captain Pierre Petrila with Southbound is hands down the best guide in the area. We took 3 boys (two 10 year olds and an 8 year old). Pierre taught them how to correctly fish and worked with them the whole time to make sure they had the best experience possible. He knows how and where to fish. In a half a day we didn't have any real slow times and even with having to teach them basically everything about catching black drum, all 3 boys still limited out. I highly recommend him and we will definitely be back for years to come.
Rosie Mcmillian-hebert reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC— 5 star October 14, 2017 · Pierre was a wonderful guide! He successfully put us on fish, including a monster trout, in spite of the less than desirable fishing conditions, Pierre was very personable, took great care of us and worked hard to make sure we had a good time! We look forward to fishing with him in the future!!
Shane McIntosh reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star September 14, 2016 · We heard about Capt Pierre through friends and booked a trip with him because our friends told us he put them on the fish! We got up early, headed out to Baffin and quickly started pulling in the trout! Pierre was very attentive and made sure we were getting bites and catching. We tried a couple of different holes and even drift fished with corks, which was a blast. We pulled in a couple of beautiful red fish and max'ed out on trout. But we stayed out fishing for a solid 8 hours. All in all, it was a fantastic trip. Capt Pierre was a GREAT guide, Hard working and just a good dude. I highly recommend him if you are looking for someone to take you out! We'll be back!
Carole Jane Hensleigh reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star December 21, 2016 · My boyfriend just got back from a trip with Pierre and he had a fantastic trip. Pierre was friendly, knowledgebale, and worked hard to put them on fish. They caught their limit of specks and mixed in some bull reds over 40 inches. Definitely a great trip and I highly recommend booking a trip. We are already planning our next trip for the summer!
Stephen Collins III reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star September 5, 2016 · We had a great time with Pierre. He was constantly working hard to get us on fish and make it the best trip possible. He got us up on a school of Reds and we were able to cast into them and all three hooked up at t the same time. Usually many captains don't get excited for their clients but when he would get pumped up about the fish we were catching it made it even more fun for us. I hope to go back soon. Highly recommend this trip for beginners and seasoned fishermen.
Kevin Merrill reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star September 5, 2016 · Went out with Captain Pierre this past week and had one of the best guided trips I've ever been on. He had us on the fish early and kept us on them throughout the day. He was genuinely interested in our success and it's obvious he has a passion for fishing, It seemed like he was just as happy to be out there as we were! I'll definitely be booking with Captain Pierre for my next fishing trip
Pete Moreno reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star October 25, 2016 · Capt Petrila is an excellent guide. He took us to several spots and we hit fish in all of them. I took my grandson's friend who had never fished before, Pierre took him under his wing and had him casting that rod in no time. He outfished us all, I told him it was "beginner's luck!” Had a great time and will certainly recommend him to my fishing buddies!
Ashley Montgomery reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star September 17, 2016 · We just got back from a trip with Captain Pierre and it was amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better captain or a better day! He made the trip fun and easy for us, Especially because he baited all my lines for me! Thanks again Captain Pierre, we had an amazing time.
Lesa Triolo reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star July 26, 2016 · We live in Austin. I called around Corpus Christi and talked to several Captains, not really knowing who to trust. Decided to have Captain Pierre take us out on a "full day fishing excursion", and so glad we did! He said if we were serious about catching fish, we should be at the marina by 530am...tough for our family, but we followed his advice. Within no time, all 4 of us were reeling in the fish! He didn't take us back to the dock once we got our trout limit, instead he took us to different areas to catch different types of fish. Taught us a few different techniques. Had different bait for us to try. He was super patient/helpful in baiting, casting, taking fish off the hook, and at times untangling our poles! We fished for a good 8 hours until we had lots of fish and were so tired! Pierre is very safe and a very knowledgeable fisherman who knows the area well. We highly recommend him!
Gaylynn Parrish reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star August 6, 2016 · We all had a fantastic time yesterday fishing the bay! The captain was great and we are planning our next trip again here really soon! He was the best! Our kids even said they where ready to do it again and we will make this a must! Thank you Captain you are the greatest!
Michel Orion Scott reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star July 12, 2016 · We had a great time fishing with Southbound Fishing Charters. We were a bit unsure how we would do because the water was low and we had heard that the fish would be hard to find. But Pierre put us on a ton of trout and drum. We came back with a haul that was much larger than the other boats. He was very helpful with his fishing instructions/suggestions, and was even great with the 5 year old on board who was on his first guided fishing trip. He's patient, friendly, and an all around great guy. We take a guided fishing trip at the bay every year and wouldn't hesitate to use Pierre again.
Paulo Ramirez reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star February 8 at 4:13pm · Captain Pierre is amazing, He knows the area and the best fishing spots, All day long we caught gigantic fish, It was a lifetime trip. Very courteous, knowledgeable and always looking for safe spots to make the experience more memorable.
Fernando Garcia reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star July 13, 2016 · I booked a fishing trip as a fathers day gift for my dad. It was a little windy and the morning was slow with the trout. But capt. Pierre knows his stuff. He took us to a different spot and we caught a bunch of drum. It was our first fishing charter and I would definitely book another trip and recommend southbound fishing charters to everyone! The smile on my dads face was worth it. He had an awesome time. Thanks again capt!
Richard Attaway reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star June 13, 2016 · Capt. Pierre knows what he is doing and will put you on the fish. I had an awesome time out fishing with him on a full day trip.. I would do it again in a heartbeat! If you are looking for a top notch fishing experience give Pierre a call.
Jessica Thomas reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star May 15, 2016 · First time bay fishing and it was everything I expected and more!!! Not only was it fun but it was educational, our guide was incredible and so much fun!! Can't wait to come back in the fall and catch some more big reds!!! Highly recommend!!
Justin Baer reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star November 13, 2016 · I've been on several guided trips from deep sea fishing in Costa Rica to kayak trips down the Colorado, and Pierre provided the best experience of them all - hands down. He went the extra mile throughout the trip, providing tips, best practices and ensuring everyone on the boat had a great time. Pierre was born to fish this area. His knowledge of the bay is incredible, and he recognizes the variables that will impact certain areas and fish behavior. It felt like every time one of us cast a line in the water, we got a bite. I was the least bit surprised when we came back with 2-3x fish as other guided trips that day. If you aren't using Southbound Fishing Charters when you're in Corpus, your using the wrong service.
Toby Cook reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star October 19, 2016 · We had a great trip fishing, well might I say catching. Pierre put us on the fish and did a great job. We caught a ton of fish. I recommend Pierre as your next guide. He is very knowledgeable of the area, the fish species and is as friendly as can be. We said that when we come back to Corpus and we get a guide, it will be him. He made a lifetime customer with us. Thank you Pierre for taking us at last minute.
Brittany Claudio reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star August 21, 2016 · Had an awesome day on the water with Pierre! He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the different areas and tactics. We targeted different categories of fish during our 8 hr trip with him and he did not fail to deliver. We caught many nice trout, reds and drum. We will definitely be planning another trip with him!
Ben Tortorello reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star August 20, 2016 · AWESOME TRIP!! Captain Pierre will put you on some fish! I strongly recommend Southbound Fishing charters for anglers of all skill levels. Captain Pierre will do an excellent job of catching quality fish and will teach you the necessary skills to become a better angler. Thanks for an outstanding time!
Meghan Browne reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star July 30, 2016 · We just got off the boat with Pierre and I'm overwhelmed by our experience. We left Clem's Marina dark and early to miss a lot of the crazy Saturday traffic and enjoyed a sunrise on the boat to the hum of his quiet motor as we made our way past Baffin Bay to the land cut. We were thrilled to have a guide take us so far south. We fished numerous spots, were given incredible assistance, and limited out on trout, caught a few really beautiful flounder and black drum (and that's just what we kept!). Our fish were expertly cleaned and he even gave us some tips for trout ceviche and stuffed flounder recipes. All said, we spent nine full hours on the boat and couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you so much, Pierre. We will be back with our booties to wade fish the flats next time!
Wayne A. reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star July 17, 2016 Capt. Pierre was a great guide. Took us down to Baffin bay and got us in on some nice speckled trout quick. Couldn't get on the reds so we went to Packery and caught our limit on black drum. Very friendly, helpful guy. Offers tips on making the catch and even spots to go kayaking and shore fishing. Would recommend.
Jamie L. reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star 7/4/2016 Had a GREAT start to the 4th of July with Captain Pierre as our guide!!! If your looking for a Fishing Charter check out South Bound!!! Hands down the best fishing guide in Corpus Christi!! Thanks again!!!
Rick H. reviewed Southbound Fishing Charters, LLC — 5 star 5/31/2016 My family took a trip with Capt P, my daughter in-law had never fished before but she's hooked now. We all caught trout and reds and had a great time.We will be back!
