Message from the Captain:

Hello!!! I would like to request the next few minutes of your time to explain the Who, What, Where, and When of the TIGERNET Fish Guide Service. My name is Lanny Phillips and my wife’s name is Nanette. We have four sons and 4 grandchildren. I retired as a Battalion Chief of the Odessa Fire Department April 2, 2002. April 10, 2002 I arrived in Aransas Pass for the Coast Guard class to obtain a Professional Fishing Guide Certificate. On May 18, 2002, I received my Master’s License and presently Guide out of Rockport, Texas. Before I was a Firefighter, I played professional baseball for six years with the Boston Red Sox Organization and the Milwaukee Brewers Organization. I well understood what it meant – you must learn how to market from stem to stern!

On Jan 29th 2016, Capt. Phillips was inducted into the West Texas A & M Hall of Champions – basically their Hall of Fame!  READ MORE NOW!!



At this time, I’m sponsored by the following companies: Chris’s Marine, Mercury, Pure Fishing, Abu-Garcia Fishing Reels, Berkley Trilene, American Rodsmith, and FitOver Eyewear. All of these Sponsors Products will be used on your guided fishing trip.

I’m a member of the Coastal Bend Guides Association and my boat is Coast Guard approved.


Please check my Rates and Services page. I look forward to taking you fishing and families with young children always welcome.


Thank you,
Captain Lanny Phillips
