Part of the fun of fishing is the element of surprise: what's going to be on the end of the line? Will you accidentally stumble upon a fish flash mob? That's also part of the fun of Mystery Tackle Box, although the end goal is always to make your fishing trips more reliably successful. In the middle of every month, subscribers open up the mailbox to find a surprise assortment of four or five cool new baits, lures, and tackle. It's all tailored to their favorite type of fishing, such as bass, inshore saltwater, ice, or public pool. If they discover a product that really reels them in, there's also an online shop to order more.

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 Torrent CAT 5 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.

Captain Walt Wendtland can most often be found aboard their specially designed fishing boats. The broad-bottomed watercraft easily cruise the long, shallow tracts of Matagorda Bay as the captains hunt the same prey they have for more than 25 years. They take guests on cruises, providing rods, reels, sunscreen, and cleaning for any catch that gets hauled in. Groups typically pursue trout, redfish, and flounder, though they sometimes seek out seasonal prey such as tripletail.

Fennessey Ranch’s ornithological guides, Nan, Lyndon, and “Famous Shoes” Crofutt, introduce bird watchers to scores of migrating avian species along a 4,000-acre Coastal Bend property. During treks through expansive wetlands, woods, and lakes, up to 40 birders gaze skyward as continuous kettles of hawks and swallow-tailed kites rocket from the Mission River as part of Mother Nature’s routine jet-pack tests. In addition to winged critters, sightseers often encounter deer, alligators, coyotes, and bobcats as they traverse the brush lands and nearby McGuill Lake. Lunch is provided, and guests are encouraged to bring comfortable attire, binoculars, bug repellant, and a sack of beefy worms to snack on.

Established: 2014 Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 2?4 hours Recommended Age Group: All Ages Fishing isn't always about chasing fish around lakes, rivers, and seas with your line in the water. Sometimes, it's about waiting for the fish to come to you. Lets Go Fishing CC TX's guides specialize in surf and pier fishing, and they know the right times to hit the shoreline in order to hook the best haul. They lead four-hour excursions during daylight hours, providing rods and bait and unhooking fish from the line when a customer makes a catch. They also conduct a few more specialized sessions, such as midnight pier-fishing excursions to catch sharks or trips from the shore in kayaks to hunt alligator gar, an unusual fish whose long, toothy mouth resembles an alligator's maw and whose tenor resembles Art Garfunkel's.
