Ram Garcia

Deep in the heart of South Texas, navigating and fishing the waters of the Texas coast grew an angler. Learning the basics from his father he knew that there was fish to be caught but how? Growing up in Robstown, Texas spending most of his time on the water he knew something had to change to expand his adventure. Expanding his knowledge of different types of fishing and conservation tactics, kayak fishing came to mind. Fishing from banks to piers, rocks to pot holes, and every nook and cranny that could possibly be holding fish; seeking that elusive fish that would only get talked about around campfires and wishing those stories and tales would be of his own one day. Casting into oblivion anticipating an award after every cast knowing that kayak fishing would pay off one day he focused his attention to the sport. Inshore to offshore he grew into the angler he is now. This angler grew with intent to follow his dream and protect the sport that he loves, this angler is Ram Garcia.  Email:
