Charlie Barrett of C&T Bay Charters is a dishonest person and a disgrace to the professional fishing guide business. I am glad that others have had better experiences. I booked a guided fishing trip with Charlie 2 months in advance. When I called him up 2 days before the trip to touch base, he claimed to have boat trouble and cancelled the trip. As a last ditch effort to go fishing, I booked a fishing trip on a larger charter boat that just happened to dock at the same location as C&T Bay Charters. When I returned from the trip, I noticed that Charlie had indeed gone fishing that day with some clients. Upon confrontation, he fed me more lies and excuses that did not add up. I hope that he learns to be up-front with his customers in the future.
Man I have to tell you that these guys are awesome. We started the morning drift fishing the rocks in baffin bay and landed 18 speckled trout most in the 20 to 22 inch range on our first drift! By the end of the day everbody had their limits in trout and at least one redfish. I have to say it was my most successful fishing trip ever. I cant wait to do it again this summer.
I recently took my family to Corpus Christi to fish Baffin Bay. We ended up booking a charter with C&T with hesistation not knowing what to expect having kids along with us. I would just like to say that Captain Charlie Barrett is a great guide for kids. My kids liked him right off the bat and talked his ear off as we set off for some of Charlie's honey holes. Our plan was to drift rock piles with live shrimp under popping corks. This is an easy way for kids to fish and it worked for Charlie the day before, so we headed toward a proven rock pile. When we arrived, he showed the kids how to bait their hooks and work the corks as we drifted over the rocks. As I expected, my kids got bored pretty quickly, but shortly into the first drift BAMM!! Chloe hooked a nice trout. Then Cole hooked one. Charlie re-baited one line and, by the time I finished releasing Cole's fish and taking a few pictures, Chloe hooked into another. By the time we called it quits, we had landed our limits in trout, a monster black drum, and two oversized redfish all in a HALF DAY of fishing! In fact, our rods were bent most of the afternoon. It was by far one of the most exciting days of fishing in my life! Thank You Charlie
