Who's Behind Active At The Beach

I’m Tracy Villarreal, the guy behind Active At The Beach and I’m in charge of all content, editing and keeping the website up and running.

Where I'm From

I was born and raised on the Texas coast. I enjoy fishing from boats, kayaks, piers and shorelines for a variety of fish species such as redfish, bass, trout, flounder and big drum (like you see here).

How I Got Started

I got my start in the great sport of fishing when Dad would take us fishing with him all around Padre Island or Corpus Christi Bay.

When I Started

My love for the outdoors grew from an early age, whether it’s surfing, beach running, 4-wheeling, and beach camping in Texas’ beautiful beaches or dirt biking across rural South Texas.

Paying It Forward

I have passed on this passion to my family, teaching them what I learned from my father and others along the way.  We have built years of great memories together.

Where We Go From Here

Water and beach activities are my real passions. I will continue trying various products, accessories, and techniques in an effort to provide honest reviews and provide great information.
