How We Got Started...

As a Professional fishing guides with over 40 years of combined experience fishing on the Lower Laguna Madre and the Texas Gulf Coast, Captain George Strader and Captain Jaime De La Fuente have made it their mission to help anglers of all skill levels catch more fish everyday. 


As most good inventions go, The Ultimate Cork was born out of necessity. As professional guides fishing over 300 days a year for the last 20 years Capt. George Strader and Captain Jaime De la Fuente have developed the ultimate fishing rig. Guiding anglers of all skill levels from children to first time anglers has taught them that finding the fish is not the only challenge. Making it possible for your clients to catch fish consistently regardless of their skill level is a bigger challenge. 

Out of this need came the creation of the Ultimate Cork. A complete fishing tackle rig that makes it possible for anglers of all ages and skill levels to hook and land fish consistently regardless of their experience level.

The Ultimate Cork can be used to catch a wide variety of saltwater game fish including but not limited to... 

Speckled Trout, Red Drum, Black Drum, Flounder, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Whiting, Croaker, and many others.

Each Ultimate Cork is handmade by Captain George Strader and Captain Jaime De La Fuente in Texas and you can count on these corks to land fish consistently. They use only the best materials and components to ensure that when you hook the Ultimate Catch you will be able to land that fish.

We will see you on the Water,
