Captain Nathan Beabout has guided fishing trips and duck hunting trips on the Middle Texas Coast since 2007. He has fine tuned his fishing and hunting skills, and adapted to all skill levels of customers for a successful trip. Also, working closely with Captain Tricia Whitley and Captain Mike McBride, he learned the areas and skills required for a successful trip in the Port Mansfield area. Spending many days on the water every year, his knowledge and skills of fishing from San Antonio Bay to Cedar Bayou and Port Mansfield areas, has developed and can lead you to a memorable trip. Captain Nathan has decided it is time to open the next chapter of his outdoor passion to the outdoor enthusiast. Not only can he share his knowledge on the coast with you, but also his experience of hunting game on his family's ranch. Here, Captain Nathan grew up learning how to hunt and stalk the illusive white-tailed deer. Misty Oaks Ranch is one thousand acres of hunting paradise, located 15 miles southeast of Seguin, Texas, and it will surely fulfill your outdoor addiction.
Captain Nathan is equipped with the latest gear for fishing and duck hunting and currently runs the new 25 1/2 foot Majek Illusion, powered by a 250 Yamaha SHO. He has all safety equipment, VHF radio, cell phone, and is licensed by the United States Coast Guard and Texas Parks and Wildlife, and is fully insured.
The preferred method of our bay fishing trips is to wade. Captain Nathan does an outstanding job sharing his knowledge of a given area, and teaching the skills needed for a successful trip. For Nathan, that's what guiding is all about...the ability to teach others about this sport and make a living doing what he loves. Don't get him wrong, watching customers fight their personal best, or understanding the presentation technique for that day leading them to bites means he is doing his job correctly. It's not always about filling the fish box, but about passing on his passion for this sport for future trips and memories. That is why he does it.
