I want to thank Cap'n Brooks for making what could have been a cold and miserable day into a great day. We went fishing on Nov 24. It was cold and very windy. It was so windy I really didn't think we would be able to go out. Two of our sons had come home for Thanksgiving and I wanted to do something special for them as they both came a very long distance.

Believe me Cap'n Brooks made it one special day the boys and myself will remember for a long time. His knowledge of the area is very impressive. He operated the boat in a secure manner even faced with a massive amount of wind. I have fished for at least 50 years, Cap'n Brooks has probably forgotten more than I will ever know.

More important than all this WE CAUGHT A LOT OF FISH. I would definitely recommend Cap'n Brooks to anyone wanting to have a great day and catch a lot of fish.

Me and my 9 year old son Greyson had the best time with you November 25th. We caught a limit of Redfish, along with trout, flounder, and drums, 19 keepers by 2:00, Wow. The picture below is our proof. Look forward to fishing with you next time.

Fishing with Capt. Brooks was a blast. I have had two fishing trips with him and both times were great. If there is a particular style of fishing that you want to try, then Capt. Brooks will accommodate that. Or, if you want to let him call all of the shots based on his 35 years of experience, then I can guarantee you that he will not let you down. If he calls the shots you stand a much better chance of catching fish, but it doesn't hurt his feelings if you want to try something else. I learned a lot from him. He is a very knowledgeable fisherman and a fine teacher.

My wife and I have been out fishing with Capt. Brooks on two occasions, and I can truly say that both fishing trips were fantastic. We have been fishing in the Rockport area for past 2 years and these last two trips have been our best. On our first trip with him, my wife and I caught over 80 fish in a 3-4 hour period with 25 of them being keepers. On top of the great fishing, Capt. Brooks is extremely patient and a very good conversationalist. We are truly looking forward to our next fishing trip with him this coming December.

Capt. Brooks,

Thanks again for a great experience on the water. The trip of October 06, 2011 was as enjoyable as the other trips we have been able to join you for the day.

Even with the extreme summer heat still effecting the water temps and lack of fresh water feeding into the bay system with the experience and knowledge you carry of the area bay systems you were able to provide a rewarding day of fishing. A very tough assignment considering the conditions, but, as always you made a great effort to find the fish. We definitely enjoyed the entire trip.

My fishing partner this day with you was my brother in law, whom I like a great deal. Before the day was over he confided in me, do not know if you overheard, he had developed blisters on two of his fingertips from reeling in fish at the pace we were on. The following day, even though he had some lingering small pains here and there, all he talked about was the trip with "Capt. Brooks".

I am working on hunting through the deer hunting season and once early spring arrives I expect I will be calling once again to schedule another day on the water that I know will only generate more great stories and memories. I am pretty certain Cindy wants to be included again in the next trip.

Safety is always very important to me, especially with my wife on board, and you have always provided a safe environment in which to boat, fish, and enjoy the day on the water.

Thanks for everything!

We will do it again!
