Over 40 years fishing experience

Ozzie has lived in Bay City all his life, and he started fishing when he was 7. At that time, you admired a man that had a boat with a 70 horsepower motor. As he grew up, Ozzie spent as many weekends fishing in Matagorda as possible. Ozzie bought his first boat in 1977 and has been fishing East and West Matagorda Bay ever since. He shrimped commercially in the late 70's and early 80's, and has oystered East and West Matagorda Bay for 30 years.

"The Pelican"

Ozzie's friends gave him the nickname "Pelican" because he always catches fish when no one else can. Ozzie knows where the fish will be feeding, what bait works best, and when the fish will be biting. Ozzie has lived up to the name Pelican.

Ozzies Passion

Ozzie enjoys teaching anyone who wants to learn how to fish. He has extensive knowledge of the bay system and 44 years of fishing experience. Articles about Ozzie have been published in Texas Parks and Wildlife and Heartland Magazine. Ozzie has shared his fishing experience with people from all over the United States, and looks forward fishing with you.
