An avid angler his whole life, Captain Raymond decided to pursue fishing in retirement as a way to enjoy life and share his passion with others. After 20 years as an electrician and 15 years in the medical field, he's found a new lease on life, and can't wait to show you his local waters of the Galveston Bay Complex.

A native to the area, he knows these waters like the back of his hand, and promises to show you why fishing in Texas City is so dear to him!

Had a blast fishing the jetties, Raymond knew where we needed to be and when we needed to be there. Nice boat and rods, he makes his own, overall great experience. I will be going with him again.
