The Big Ol Mess Fishing Report proved to be a huge success in its first go-round. Take Two is another great one as guides across the country report phenomenal spring fishing conditions. See below for 25"+ Speckled Trout in Galveston, hefty Bluefin Tuna in San Diego, drag-pulling Bonefish in Islamorada, and sizable Louisiana Redfish.

Our guides, charters, lodges, and outfitters continue to suffer tremendously due to the Coronavirus. That being said, they're confident about getting through this and look forward to the flurry of bookings once things normalize. Book 'em up now to get ahead of the rush, and book with confidence thanks to our 100% Trip Guarantee, Free Cancellations, and Best Price Guarantee.

Hello everybody, I hope that you are home safe and feeling fine. I am sure that like me, you are savoring your sports re-runs, playing games with the kids, and gaining weight at an alarming rate.

I miss fishing, and being on the ocean, and hanging out with all of you. When I started to write this article I thought about trying to make some jokes to lighten the subject, but instead have decided I should talk about my observations and pertinent information instead.

So I sat down last night and thought it'd be great to ask our guides for fishing reports ahead of the weekend. I blasted a text out expecting a few responses...

I was immediately blown away by how many updates I received. I hunkered down to write this and the first thing I thought was, "this is gonna be a Big Ol Mess".

These are great fishing reports that we at Captain Experiences are excited to share. We can't thank our Damn Good Guides enough for this info, and wish everyone and their families the best during these times.

Galveston fishing trips

Galveston Spring break action is in full swing- bull Black Drum, Sheepshead, and slot Redfish are here and they're hungry!

At the jetties, bull Black Drum are red hot on tide fluctuations. Heavy morning fog can complicate hitting the tidal outflows/inflows on time but they're biting if you can get there!

Capt. LG and his groups caught 10+ drum yesterday (3/12/20), a few Redfish, and a few Sheepshead. The bull Black Drum are chomping best on cracked crab.
