Guided by Henry Rodriguez
Deep Sea Inshore Nearshore
Captain Henry hosts bayfishing trips, dolphin excursions, daily sunset tours, and deep sea charters when weather permits and during calm seas. Captain Henry's go-to technique is trolling, but he'll also have no problem getting you a fish with light and heavy tackle.
Captain Henry has a true passion for the sport of fishing and everything to do with the Texas coast. He proudly worked for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department while volunteering at the Coastal Fishery Department. During that time he gained invaluable knowledge about how coastal fish species travel, eat and spawn. It's safe to say his volunteer work set him up to be a top tier guide!
Come have some serious fun and explore some of the most prolific waters in the area with Henry! Captain Henry hotspots in SPI have been hitting, so make sure to listen closely to his tips and tricks. On these 6 or 8-hour state water offshore trips, you can expect to target Kings, Blackfin, Bonito and Red Snapper (when in season), and many more species! When Red Snapper is in season, Captain Henry has some special spots way up the coast that hold some big boy Red Snapper within the State Water line! You will be fishing aboard Captain Henry’s 30-foot center console powered by twin 300 HP Mercury Verado engines. It can accommodate up to 6 anglers, so make sure you bring some good company! It also has a private toilet, spearfishing and snorkeling equipment, and a livewell. A first mate will also be on board to help you when you need it. Don’t forget to bring a valid Texas Fishing License (which you can purchase online), a hat, sunscreen, some food and drinks for the day, and an ice box to take home your day’s catch. Captain Henry will provide all rods, reels, tackle, and lures. For an additional fee, he will clean and fillet your day’s catch. Get ready for an action-packed day on the water with Captain Henry of Henry’s Charters! Read More

Had a great time and caught lots of fish. Captain Henry took the time to make sure we were comfortable with the equipment and his mate couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly.
Trip was great. Captain Henry was awsome and even helped us with changing the date and took us out on turkey day to give us the full SPI experience.
The captain was great and well knowledgeable. The trip was perfect other then our first trip being canceled due to weather. But this captain was welling to take us out. Luckily it didn't rain! The over cast clouds was great! Only reason I'm giving a 4 star not a 5 star is cause we weren't able to go out of the marina cause of the weather. Captain had great equipment and clean and bagged our catch for the day! Would highly recommend! …
Captain Henry was great with our novice kids ages 16, 11 and 8, and they all had a blast. He was patient, informative, helpful and accommodated my son when he started getting nauseous. If a spot wasn’t working, he would move to another location. The 30’ Triton easily accommodated five passengers. Thank you for taking us out! …
Great experience and family friendly as well. I would recommend Henry to all.
Henry is a great captain! He took us right to the fish every time!
We just got off the boat and had a great time! Saw a lot of dolphins and a sweet surprise of sea turtles! Thanks so much Cap’n Henry. The boys will this trip always!
What a fun time...I will definitely book bay fishing with Henry again. They did us right and we caught so many fish we have enough for a few meals for 10 people. Lots a laughs too...great job guys!
Thank you Henry for taking us out today our family loved our tour! 100% recommend he took the time to look for dolphins and get as close as he could
This was an awesome trip couldn’t of asked for a better captain. Henry did a great job.
Amazing job! Tons of fish and very helpful with my inexperienced family members! 5 stars for sure!
We had a very good experience on the trip with Captain Henry. He really tried to make our experience a memorable one. My family and I would definitely book another trip with him again.
Great experience, my twins loved it. Will recommend to all of my friends!!
Today myself and son went out on a private fishing trip on the bay and it was fantastic. I loved being out on the water and got to catch a large variety of fish. The weather was good and the captain was even better. Hurry up and book your trip today. We will definitely be back! …
Alex kept very busy, trying to make sure all of us were baited and trying to catch fish. Very patient and we did ok, considering no one out their today had good catches. We would recommend Alex as a great guide to everyone!
Fun, but not great. It was supposed to be offshore but it wasn't. The boat said it was equipped with a bathroom, it was not. After tipping for a total of $725 the two black drum we caught better be pretty tasty.
