Biography: My name is Capt. Van Critendon Jr. I was born and raised Fishing and Duck Hunting the Matagorda Bay Complex located on the Mid Coast of Texas. I started out taking my friends, neighbors, and co-workers, Hunting or Fishing and soon discovered my love for guiding, and sharing my passion for the outdoors with a conservative mind set. I heavily express my concern for the fisheries and ask to take what you need and leave the rest for our future generations to come. I then decided to get my Captains License and make it a career.  I operate my guide service, Raise 'Em Up Guide Service out of  Palacios, Port O Connor, and Matagorda, Texas. We offer Half/Full Day fishing trips for multiple Saltwater Fish Species located in the Matagorda Bay Complex, and we offer Morning or Evening Duck hunts as well. Cast and Blasts or Blasts and Casts, up to the customer. I have multiple Captains available to assist with corporate trips and or large parties looking to fish or duck hunt or both. We offer discounted rates for Veterans,  Active Serviceman, and First Responders.
