We had an unbelievable time with Capt. Cheryl and first mate Thomas! They were kind enough to take us out for a super last minute half day trip and did not disappoint. Within minutes of anchoring at the jetties, we were catching slot redfish and black drum. Things escalated quickly once we found the spot, and we pulled in TWO 40 inch plus redfish from there. Capt. Cheryl and Thomas kept our hooks baited, kept multiple lines in the water at all times, and kept the vibes positive and fun. I can’t recommend them more highly, thanks for putting me on my personal best redfish. This one will be tough to top! - Jonathan with Captain Experiences

I wish there were more stars to give! This was by far the best 4 hour trip I’ve ever taken by a mile. Truly the best of the best at every level. We can’t wait to come back!

We went out today with Captain Joe. He was fabulous!! We were a party of one man, one eight-year-old boy, and two seniors- a man and a woman. Captain Joe related well to everyone! He was funny, polite, knowledgeable, good spirited, and an excellent guide. We were especially impressed by the way Captain Joe worked with out young fisherman in bringing in two great (and big) fish. He has our highest rating.

I cant even write how great of a time we had with Bubba and Cheryl. We cough Reds , a 6-7 foot shark, sting rays but more importantly we had laughs after laughs. If you are going to go fishing in Galveston and you don’t go out on the Salty Rod you made a mistake. We will be back soon guys I am trying to get the sales team to come down for a 2 boat trip 12 people

I had so much fun with our Captain Jojo. He was friendly, kind, and made my trip a trip to remember. Right away you could tell he had experience and knowledge and shared it with us throughout the trip. We caught many fish and the big plus he did ask the hard work and I just carried my fresh caught fish home.

This is a Top Notch fishing operation. Not only were they very professional and courteous, but Captain Bubba and Cheryl had us on fish the whole time we were on the boat. They are very knowledgeable about all the species of fish we fished for, but they kept it simple, as to keep it a relaxed atmosphere. Landed a couple keeper Sea Trout, but the real treat was what we used the bait fish for. We hooked and landed to real nice big BlackTip Reef Sharks…...... Whoooaaa (What A Fight)!!!! I HIGHLY recommend, they’ll make you feel right at home.

We do not know where to begin with our trip. From start to finish for the salty rods crew made it one for the books. They are very knowledgeable, safe and personable to be around. We had 10 sharks total from being boated to caught and released back. We highly recommend fishing with them. We can not wait to get back on the water with them again! Thank you for An amazing day!

Had a blast with salty rod. They were fun to be around and worked hard to put us on fish. They helped the teenage boys have a great fishing experience. Would definitely book with salty rod again.
