Capt. Aubrey Black is an avid fisherman and hunter born and raised in rugged west Texas in the tiny town of Sanderson. He began developing his fishing addiction at places like Independence Creek and ranch stock tanks and progressed to both freshwater and saltwater venues all over the state of Texas and into Mexico.
Competitive fishing became an obsession shortly after moving to San Antonio. Seven years of Bass tournament fishing had left him wanting something different. Although he was familiar with fishing the coast, it had never been a focal point.
That all changed in 2000 on a chance trip to Baffin Bay with friends. The quality of fish caught on this trip spurred an interest in pursuing the biggest and best trout in the state which soon became all consuming. In 2003 he obtained his USCG license and became a fulltime fishing guide on his newfound home waters of Baffin Bay and based his operation in Loyola Beach, Texas. Through hard work and time spent on the water, he soon became well known in fishing circles as one of the best "Big Trout" guides on the Texas coast.
A staunch conservationist, Aubrey has helped put the emphasis on the “chase” and less on the “filled limits.” “Fishing is not always about the catching,” he is fond of saying and he has geared his charter business toward teaching, the camaraderie of good friends and just enjoying what God has given us.
Being from west Texas, hunting was always a big part of his life and through natural progression Aubrey has carried on his love for hunting. Along with guiding dove and duck hunts during the season, he likes to spend time working with and training his Labrador retrievers. He is very committed to all of his outdoor activities and living in a sportsman’s paradise like south Texas makes it easy.
