About Capt. Andy Hernandez
A USCG licensed Capt and Texas Parks & Wildlife licensed and insured Saltwater Fishing Guide In Rockport, Texas.
I began my outdoor experience hunting and fishing at a young age. As time passed, fishing became my focus. My experiences in fishing have taken me across Texas, The Florida Keys, Colorado, Washington State, California, Oregon, Alaska and The Bahamas, Costa Rica ,Belize and the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico in Costa Maya. I have fly fished in all these locations and continue to add new locales every year!
As a full time resident of Rockport, Texas I have the opportunity to spend numerous days on the water. By spending time on the water I have the ability to establish fishing patterns, based on tidal movement, weather and wind conditions. I am a member of the Coastal Bend Guides Association, CCA , GRTU (Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited) and The Rockport Fly Fishers and the Rockport Chamber of Commerce.
I have been fishing on the Texas Coast all of my life and about 25 years ago, fly fishing caught my attention. I decided to fly fish the saltwater in and around Rockport TX. Fly fishing and wading the shallow flats and bays have become my passion.While I still use conventional techniques to fish the Texas Coast, I love to educate and expose people to my favorite sport of fly fishing. The idea of wade fishing and getting away from the confines of the boat is remarkable. Stepping into nature and putting yourself one-on-one with the fish is exhilarating!
I have had the opportunity to Guide for several Local Tournaments and charities over the past few years, including:
*2013 Babes on the Bay with 1400 entries . The team I guided finished 2nd place Heaviest Red Fish.
*The Hooked on Youth Tournament team I guided in 2014 finished 2nd.
*The Warriors Weekend Heroes Cup 2013 with the team finishing 3rd place Heaviest Over sized Red Fish. 2016 taking 1st place slot red 2nd and 3rd place drum!
*Our Final Tournament for 2013 was the Camp Aranzazu "Zazu" Tournament benefiting people with special needs and chronic conditions. The team finished 1st place heaviest Redfish. I participate in Copano Energy Cystic Fibrosis Tournament.
As a Member of the Coastal Bend Guides Association, I have the opportunity to volunteer for wonderful organizations such as the Driscoll Children's Hospital, and South Texas Children's Home.
I look forward to competing and volunteering with these organization's again in the coming years.I try to make fishing fun; the way it was when we were kids--"catching" is the bonus!
