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.
With a quick flick of the wrist, baited lines arc through the air and plunk into the still waters of Lake Conroe. Stretching from a boat along the bulkheaded shoreline, those lines soon dip with the weight of bites. Various species of bass, as well as catfish, bream, crappie, and hungry scuba divers nibble away as anglers receive reel them in under the instruction of Just Fun Fishing Adventures' licensed guides. These guides also provide all the necessary equipment so anglers need only bring food and drink.
The Sam Houston National Forest lines the north end of the shoreline, treating passengers to sweeping views of wildlife, including ospreys, buffleheads, loons, and occasional bald eagles. As such, Just Fun Fishing Adventures offers half-day bird-watching tours to help interested parties get closer to the airborne action.
