Loved it! It was a little slow since it was cold but Cory and Hunter made it entertaining!

Even though is was very windy and fishing conditions were challenging, we had a great time with Captain Rick and Jonathan. We caught some very nice bull reds, and had fun fishing with the smaller rod. We definitely plan to go again.

Captain Houston’s crew (Bobby and Gabriel) was awesome. My family and I had a great experience and made crazy fun memories. Recommend deep sea fishing with these guys highly. Thanks Kevin

Captain Houston was always quick to respond to text and emails as was captain experiences. However we had Captain Bobby and his deck hand "Boots". Two super good guys and their handling of our excursion only made us want to go again. Our family was 10 and half us spent most of our four hour trip nauseated from the rough waters and these two gentlemen were very attentive to the people. We appreciated this greatly. We would overwhelmingly recommend this trip and crew. Boots cleaned our catch and recommended a restaurant that would cook it for us We took his advice and were not disappointed. They helped us have a great family vacation highlighted by this fishing trip. Thanks guys!!

Bobby & Jonathan were PHENOMENAL. We took the 6 hour shark hunt and they both went above and beyond to catch everything we could. We had a group of 7 from age 5 to 30. They made sure we ALL had a blast. 1000/10. Absolutely recommend and must do again.

We did a 1/2 day trip with Captain Todd and Jonathan and they worked hard to get us on the fish and they delivered. They took care of everything. We ended up taking our fish to the Huli Huli Hut at their recommendation and they prepared our fish three different ways with loads of sides. Excellent recommendation by the crew. Highly recommend.

Caputn Cody and his deckhand Donny were great. He was also very flexible due to weather and we were able to reschedule it for the next day. It took us a while to find a good spot, but once we did, they were both very helpful. Will recommend using him and would be using him again if able in the future

Captain Cody was very knowledgeable about fishing in Galveston and his crewmen was friendly and kept me and my guest supplied with bait for our reels.

Highly recommend a charter with Captain Cody! He is knowledgeable, puts you on the fish, and is constantly reading the current, tides, winds to keep you one step ahead of the fish. We had the best fishing day ever thanks to Cody and his awesome first mate. If you are looking for the best and most fun- you have found it!
