30-year kayaking veteran Marshall Hosea leads four-hour excursions into rivers, creeks, bayous, and bays, not only guiding his guests to fish, but teaching them how to read the water for themselves. He shows passengers how to find and spot schools of fish, ideal casting techniques for different circumstances and locations, and how different seasons change a fisherman's tactics. He covers how to pick a fishing location for the kayak, and the differences between the paddle-driven craft and a motorized boat in regards to fishing. He primarily uses artificial lures on these excursions, but happily swaps for any kind of lure a passenger prefers to use.
Texas Kayak Guide
Some of Marshall Hosea's earliest memories involve water lapping gently about the ankles of his oversized boots as he waded into a river or creek for some classic fly-fishing with his father and grandfather. What started as a childhood pastime became a lifelong passion, and Marshall began experimenting with all kinds of boats to enhance his fishing experience. He loved feeling close to nature and the water as he cast lines and baited hooks, and he found the kayak offered him the best experience. As a bonus, the paddle-driven craft left no trace upon the natural beauty he so loved.
Now, he teaches others the joy of kayaking and fishing as the owner and head guide of Texas Kayak Guide. He takes passengers down rivers and creeks, or skimming across bayous and bays, showing them raccoons hunting shellfish, osprey darting into the water to snatch fish, and porpoises swimming alongside the quiet craft. While on the water, he also teaches the finer points of fishing, including everything from how to spot a fish to changing one's tactics to match the seasonal behavior of one's prey.
