Captain Andrew Marikos grew up on South Padre Island, Texas where he spent every chance he had fishing the waters of the Lower Laguna Madre and the Gulf of Mexico. After graduation he studied at Texas A&M, but continued his fishing hobby in fresh water, and gained a love for hunting Texas game. Andrew returned back to the island, achieved the status of Captain with his United States Coast Guard License and began a business offering quality guided fishing and hunting trips. When Captain Andrew started his business he knew he needed the best fishing vessel for safety and performance. His Shallow Sport Boats 21′ Sport with a 150 hp 4 stroke Mercury Outboard was the best choice.
Captain Andrew is passionate about spreading his knowledge of fishing in the unique ecosystem that makes up the Lower Laguna Madre. He strives to make every charter not only a fun time, but an educational trip whether the anger is a novice or professional.
I personally fish the Delacroix area weekly if possible for the beautiful reds our marshes offer. I recently met Jaesen Yerger with Cajun Custom Rods while working a show with Unfair Lures…he got my attention with the detail and engineering he incorporates in each of his made in USA fishing rods, and soon became an honored pro staff member for Cajun Custom Rods. Other companies I am associated with: ambassador for Unfair lures, pro staff and sales rep for Aqua Dream lures, Masseys Professional Outfitters fishing team member, and sales rep for Paddlelogic Trailtreker kayak carts.
