Blue Heron Adventures – Fishing Guide in Corpus Christi

Captain Steve Utley is a fully licensed and certified Texas fishing guide. He specializes in shallow water kayak fishing and scenic kayak trips based out of Corpus Christi, Texas. Guiding his clients in fishing for redfish, speckled trout and flounder in the shallow waters from Bird Island Basin to Shamrock Cove is his passion. He also runs guided fishing trips using his Ranger Banshee Extreme which he calls his “kayak with a key”. The Banshee Extreme is perfectly suited for fly fishing or light tackle fishing in skinny water and, unlike a kayak, you don’t have to paddle to get there.

Captain Utley is a Guide Member of the Federation of Fly Fishers, is the first in the state of Texas to complete the Wildlife Guide Certification program offered by the Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau, and was recently awarded the Conservation Stewardship Award by the Coastal Bend Bays Foundation.

Steve, Had a great time fishing with you on 11/5/10. My first really good fly action on Texas Reds and all 22-26in. Great boat, too. It’s amazing how skinny that thing will go. Give you a shout next time I’m around. Thanks, Dave
