HELLO! My name is Captain Andrew. I have over a decade of experience taking guests on deep-sea fishing charters in the Gulf of Mexico. This section tells about my life and background so you can know a bit about your captain before the trip!
I first began to hone in my skills on the “party-boats” out of Port Aransas Texas. Over the years I have worked aboard every vessel from Fisherman’s Wharf, Dolphin Docks and Deep Sea Headquarters. I spent the longest time working under and learning everything from the legendary Captain Marvin Horner Jr. aboard The Kingfisher.
After years of dedication to consistent hard work while following my passion for fishing…an opportunity of a lifetime to take things to the next level came into my life. I starred in a new Discovery Channel reality TV show called Ice Cold Catch. (It’s on Discovery+, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Peacock, SlingTV, Fubo etc…) I found myself traveling to Iceland to work aboard the Valdimar, a battle-scarred, tested, and true long-line vessel.
The workload intensity matched the larger-than-life personalities of the hard-working captains and crew mates. I experienced the world’s most treacherous waters while fishing through Arctic cyclones off the west coast of Iceland. I also worked through storm season all around Iceland, the North Atlantic Ocean, Denmark Strait as well as north of the Arctic Circle towards Greenland. Although tough, it was an amazing experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
My dream was always to have my own fishing charter business. I want to share a bit of why I love fishing and being so close to nature with the rest of the world. Ocean conservation and responsible fishing are very important so that future generations of fishermen and fisherwomen can also enjoy the same beauty one day! Upon returning to the United States, I realized that the time is now to take a step further once more and that I’m ready to show everyone the Reel Deal about fishing!!!

The oil rigs that you can see from the beach are structure sources for many different species of fish. The travel time is minimal and allows for much more fishing time! The rig trip is a great trip for a beginner who wants to fish on the ocean but, just isn't quite ready to fight waves and spend a bunch of time traveling. For some, it also provides a sense of relief being so close to the shore where you can clearly see land. It is also always fun to see some of the massive Loggerhead Turtles and Dolphins. Read More
