Lone Star Guide

book a trip Read the Stories

Lone Star Guide was born from a passion for finding adventure, and a desire to preserve the lush biodiversity of the Texas coast.

Lone Star Guide infuses its world-class fishing expeditions with an ethos of stewardship, responsibility, and conservation.

Meet

Captain Travis Power

USCG and TPWD licensed

From a young age, Travis took the path less traveled, and as luck would have it, most of those paths crossed the Texas Coast. He always credits his father for most of his knowledge base; everything from working cows to raising a family, though saltwater fishing was something he came to all on his own. This solo path led to many ups, a whole lot of downs, and most importantly, to many instrumental and like-minded friends.

Combining his entrepreneurial spirit with his desire to protect and preserve those places he grew up exploring, Lone Star Guide is the culmination of Travis’ undying love for adventure, deep-rooted knowledge of the known and lesser-known coastal regions, and his duty to maintain the Texas Wild.

Wade Fishing

Iconic fishing the Texas way, these trips go out on the Shallow Sport 24’ ModV and will put you up close and personal to the action. Great for all experience levels, as wade fishing only takes a lifetime to master.  If you can walk on the beach you can go wade fishing. Up to 4 persons.

Fly Fishing

Get up on the bow of a poling skiff and quietly glide over the shallow back lakes of Texas.  This type of fishing is very visual as you rely on your eyes to hunt and spot the fish.  All experience levels welcomed, can be fly or conventional fishing gear.  Up to 2 persons.

Tarpon Fishing

Maybe the most exciting fishing Texas has to offer. We will launch with the Shallow Sport 24’ ModV and cruise the beachfront looking for schools of bait and rolling Tarpon. These ancient fish have captivated Texas anglers for the last 100 years and are often called a “once in a lifetime” fishing experience.  Fly or conventional gear is welcomed. Up to 4 persons.

Navigation

Get the most up-to-date and professionally maintained tracks on the Texas coast. On each trip we go over all aspects of boating, starting with boat prep and launch. Then we preload GPS routes on the chartplotter and run those routes. Seeing the routes twice really makes a difference in overall boating confidence. Membership for monthly GPS and fishing report updates available.

Up to 2 person poling skiff and 4 person ModV.

I love to get creative and capture moments. Either making and producing exceptional content or getting you to the right spot to capture your own. This can be added to any fishing trip, or as a stand-alone service.

Our Boat Fleet

Bookings available for Wade fishing trips.

2022 Shallow Sport 24 MODV
The newly re-designed Mod V features a smooth running Modified Deep V hull that converts to a tunnel at mid-ship. The reverse chines at the bow eliminate the unwanted side spray of conventional V hulls while channeling the water up and under the boat to maximize lift. The Mod V has higher sides and is the perfect crossover boat for deeper open waters, yet still capable of unrivalled shallow water performance for a V hull.

Xplor Boatworks X18
The X18 is the original Xplor boat. Designed with adventure in mind and the goal to GO ANYWHERE, GO EVERYWHERE; this boat is simple and thought out. One large storage hatch in the front, an open area under the rear deck, and enough spray rail to keep you dry in rough waters is what makes this boat so unique. This boat can be poled in only five inches of water, making it the perfect technical skiff for any coastal areas.
