Robert Frost could have used a local guide when he decided to take the road less traveled, as he discovered only too late that it was patrolled by feral park rangers. Learn how a tour guide makes all the difference with today's Groupon: for $150, you get an eco tour for four people from Knee Deep Fishing with Captain Ciruti in Matagorda (a $300 value).

Knee Deep Fishing's Captain Ciruti––an angler of redfish, speckletrout, flounder, and tripletail on the Matagorda Bay and Colorado River for more than a quarter century––illuminates the history and layout of the bay and its surrounding waterways for explorers. Passengers on the three-hour eco tour don provided life jackets and scramble aboard the captain's vessel, a 22-foot Gulf Coast powered by an E-Tec 200 engine and backup engine of harnessed trout. As the captain navigates the surface of the Intracoastal Waterway, East and West Matagorda Bays, and the Colorado River, tour-goers keep eyes peeled for local wildlife. Skyward glances may yield views of pelicans, herons, and eagles mingling high above such land-bound creatures as deer, hogs, and coyotes. Aquatic adventurers can also sight indigenous upscale houses and quaint getaway destinations foraging for berries in their natural waterfront habitat.

Knee Deep Fishing with Captain Ciruti

An angler of redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and tripletail on the Matagorda Bay and Colorado River for more than a quarter century, Knee Deep Fishing's Captain Ciruti shares fishing wisdom during guided trips. The captain provides all gear on drifting trips, welcoming anglers aboard his 22-foot Gulf Coast boat powered by a 200-HP Suzuki engine and hundreds of bubbles blown by harnessed trout. For fishermen with their own rods and wading boots, Ciruti leads walk-and-wade excursions into shallow flats and along coastlines.

To accommodate nature admirers and history buffs, Ciruti also charters eco tours to illuminate the history, layout, and wildlife of the bay and its surrounding waterways. Skyward glances may yield views of pelicans, herons, and eagles, and below, land-bound creatures such as deer, hogs, and coyotes may make appearances along the banks.
