"Throughout the trip Hugh took the time to explain a lot of the electronics to me and we discussed a lot of strategy around his approach to the current pattern. Both things he didn’t have to do.
Additionally, Hugh was quick to tweak his initial game plan when he realized my dad struggled to move around the boat. We didn’t move as much as Hugh planned but he was still able to put us on fish and knew what/where to throw to get them to bite.
I’ve been fortunate enough to go on hundreds of guided trips in my lifetime. All species of fish and in multiple countries. Many guides I’ve fished with multiple times each year and for multiple years. The biggest thing I see guides do is stray away from all the things I mentioned above. It seems like guides get busy and stop doing the little things that made them successful. They stop providing the personalized type of service that Hugh provided and it turns into less memorable trip.
Highly recommend a bass fishing trip with Hugh. He took the time to teach us a lot about their patterns and techniques to use during different patterns for time of day and time of year. Bonus - we caught a lot of nice fish! " -Chris P.
"Hugh was great! He is a wonderful communicator and helped me understand the basics of the Helix menus and in depth explaining of the side imaging. Then off to fish where he showed me drop shot techniques and how to skip under docks. I was able to get better and better over the year because of his initial help.
I plan on hiring him again, during spawn to teach me shallow water techniques. Do yourself a favor and hire him. Whether you are a beginner or advanced angler, Hugh will improve your fishing!!! And thank you for answering all my texts. You have always made time for me, and it’s appreciated!" -Michael M.
This trip was a great mix of information and fun. Hugh was able to lock in a successful pattern early and made adjustments when needed. Great trip, I will be a repeat client." - Chris B.
"Trip was amazing. Hugh not only set up the electronics he explained the set up and settings very well helped us understand how to identify and find structure. What he taught us in three hours would’ve taken us years on our own." -Robert T.
"Been very frustrated and wanted to sell the boat. Well I hired Hugh Cosculluela and just on our first spot I already had my best day on Conroe yet catching 5 fish between us. Hugh taught me a lot about the nuances of Conroe and more about imaging and sonar that made everything just sort of click for me.
Throughout the half day we must have caught over 20 large mouth bass and we both lost 6-7lb monsters right at the boat. Conditions were very light cloud coverage, a spotty south wind, water temp 81°, and everything caught 10-16ft on brush piles.
I absolutely recommend Hugh as not just a guide but an instructor and I will be a repeat customer in the future hoping that I take away what I learned and put it into practice. If I start to revert back to my old ways and not catching fish I will get my refresher from him. My faith in fishing has been restored." -John S.
"Great trip! Learned a lot from Hugh on how he breaks down a lake and what he targets. Will book again as the seasons and patterns change." - Blake O.
"Hugh’s age doesn’t reflect his fishing capabilities! A true professional committed to successful guide trips while teaching throughout the day. My highest recommendation for anglers to shorten their learning curve." -Jason S.
"My wife and I really enjoyed our trip with Hugh. My wife doesn't have much experience fishing and Hugh's patience and knowledge made her feel comfortable and she ended up catching quite a few fish. Even under rough fishing conditions he kept us catching fish. We would definitely use him again!" -Nate E
"I am retired, we moved to Montgomery and I wanted to get a jump start on the bass fishing. I met Chad while he was fishing near our dock. He took me out a couple of times and helped me to understand the lake. Loved his Basscat and Castaway Rods. Very knowledgeable and a good guy. P.S our best 5 was 23 lbs on our 1st trip" -Mike W.
"I gotta say thanks to you, we were having what we would consider a dry season of THSBA Tournament fishing. So I booked a fishing lesson with you for our son on Lake Conroe for 2-12-22, we had a tournament the following weekend 2-19-22.
We went from not finding any fish and turning in our wristband, to locating and boating 7 fish in one trip which resulted in a walk across the weigh stage. Folks, if you’ve got an up and coming youth bass angler and you want to get some tips and tactics for locating and catching bass. On a scale of 1-10 I rate it a 15. Thank you Hugh for what you do." -Cody P.
"Hugh was top notch. Full of the information we were seeking. We were trying to learn Lake Conroe and a little bit about how our graph works. Hugh was able to explain where and most importantly why he fishes certain areas. Depending on season and water etc. this is the best place to fish. His explanation of the graph was put in terms that my 14 year old could understand what he was looking at. He is full of knowledge and anxious to teach. We caught fish, but honestly that was not our purpose. He was accommodating in every way. I recommend giving him an opportunity to do the same for you. You won’t be disappointed." - Brian B.
"Trip was amazing. I learned so much from Hugh. He knows the electronics inside and out. He listens to your questions and is so great to work with. Can't wait to go out again." - Brandon B.
