About Your Trip

Head out with Captain Chris Philips for an outstanding experience out on Sabine Lake. This fishery is a renowned fishing destination known for its booming Redfish, Trout, and Flounder populations. Not to mention Ling and Tripletail can also be caught around the nearshore gas platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

When you go out with Capt. Chris aboard his 25' Contender you can expect to use a myriad of different methods to hook into these fish. From drifting the lake with cut baits to sight fishing tailing reds, Captain Chris does it all and will recommend the best method given the conditions and tide movements the day of.

When fishing with Captain Chris and his crew all you need to bring is your Texas fishing license (or Louisianna depending on which side of the lake you want to fish), food, sunblock, and your choice of clothing depending on the weather.

How do you choose who you should go on the water with…. Well I’m so happy that we made the perfect choice for our family for sure!! Honestly felt like we were out on the water with a great friend! Was great with the boys, giving tips and tricks along the way and who doesn’t like reeling in a shark right? I can not give any higher praise than YOU SHOULD BOOK WITH CHRIS!! Thank you Chris for making this a lifetime experience for us all! We will be back!

Enjoyed meeting Captain Chris. He was great and patient with family members new to the salt water life. It started out slow with tide and gaff top’s biting, but Captain worked hard and got us on a good mess of fish. I highly recommend Captain Chris as a guide and look forward booking another trip with him when I’m back in town.

What a great day of fishing. My young adult children were visiting from out of state and wanted to do something they couldn’t do at home. So I booked a trip with Mr. Phillips. We had a great time. Mr. Phillips knew just where to go for the fish. We caught fish all along the way with some HUGE bites. He was professional. safe. knowledgable, personable, and patient. He took a little extra time with my daughter when she needed help. He was sensitive to the fact that she wasn’t feeling great during some of the trip and found us some gentler water. And the highlight of the day was both of my kids getting to catch and release some really nice sharks after a great battle. For me, the memories of a day of gulf fishing with my kids will be something I will enjoy for the rest of my life and I will book with Captain Phillips again if I can get them to visit again. Thank you very much for a great day on the water!!!

Captain Chris was very accomadting to our group. We had our disabled uncle with us and even he got to fish and had the best time. My 14 year old and my husband were in competition all day to see who got the most fish. All around it was a great experiwnce and we are already booking another outing with Captain Chris.

Captain Chris made sure we were set up for successful fishing. He took us to several spots, bates our hooks as needed, and helped the kids! My 5 year old daughter loved the fast ride the most, but even she caught several.
