trip description for Flats and Backwaters on Artificials in Aransas Pass

Captain Larry knows how to get you on the Trout and Redfish in Copano and Mesquite bay! He likes to fish the grassy flats and back lakes using topwater baits, wakebaits, and Downsouth lures to find fish. He's also experienced at wading and drifting these flats and backwater lakes, so whatever suits your fancy, Captain Larry can make it happen. Casting and retrieving these artificials is a lot of fun and makes each strike that much more exciting! This area holds trophy Trout in the 30-inch range and big-time Redfish, and these big fish can't resist the temptation to whack a shiny, twitchy artificial lure that enters their territory. Bring your waders if you're into stalking these fish on foot, your food and drinks of choice, and get ready for an awesome day of inshore sportfishing with Captain Larry! Read More

trip description for Half Day Bay - 24’ Kenner in Galveston

Head out of Galveston for a phenomenal day out on the water with Captain Reggie! On this trip, you'll drift-fish over shelves, underwater structure, and secret "honey holes" that Captain Reggie has identified over his many years fishing the Galveston area. Depending on your goals for the day, you can target Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder and Sheepshead—to name just a few. This trip is also a great chance to go for a "Texas Grand Slam" or a "Texas Triple" by catching a Redfish, a Trout, and a Flounder in one day! No matter which species you choose to pursue, Captain Reggie is a pleasure to share a boat with. He's happy to work with box experts and beginners alike, and loves showing "greenhorns" the wonders of saltwater fishing. His knowledge of the Galveston waterways makes him a great captain and an even better teacher, for beginners to experienced anglers! Captain Reggie provides all the rods, reels, tackle, and bait you could possibly need for a successful day slaying the fish. All you need to do is meet Captain Reggie at the dock. Please remember your sun protection, your cooler with snacks and drinks, and your Texas Fishing License. Captain Reggie will take it from there and ensure you have a fantastic day on the water!

trip description for Night Time Flounder Gigging in Port O'Connor

Join Captain Pat on the flounder gigging trip of a lifetime! Captain Pat is offering 4 hour nighttime Flounder Gigging trips out of Port O'Connor, Texas for up to 5 anglers. Flounder fishermen often say that a slow night of gigging is better than a slow day of rod and reel fishing. Flounder gigging is a primitive yet exciting form of fishing where lights on the front of the boat illuminate the shallow bay floor to reveal the outline or the red eyes of the flounder below. You then use a forked spear - a flounder gig - to secure your catch! Try your hand at this awesome form of fishing that's sure to bring hours of entertainment. Enter your Date, Duration, Group Size, and Start Time above to Book Now with Captain Pat and Captain Experiences! Read More

    Michael did an excellent job giving us opportunities to reel in a limit of trout. He put us into some sheltered areas to accomplish this due to turbulent waves in the bay. Great customer service. Michael’s experience led us to book with him.

    First off Danny communicated well about where to be and what time the day before our excursion. Once we got started it was clear that he was very knowledgeable and knew where to go to maximize our fishing efforts. Him and his deck hand made sure that our family of 4 always had a baited pole in our hands and were ready to grab any fish that we caught! We would absolutely go fishing with Danny again!

    Oh, man, let me tell you about this fishing charter in Galveston. If you want an adventure on the high seas that rivals Moby Dick without the depressing ending, book a trip with Captain Sean and his first mate Abbie. These folks know their stuff. So, we start the day with my stepdad, bless his heart, hooking a stingray. Yeah, you read that right. He thought he was reeling in a sea monster. The water was choppy, and I was starting to think this was gonna be a long day of nothing but stories about the one that got away. But Captain Sean, the Gandalf of the Gulf, says, "Hold my beer," and finds us the perfect spot. The man’s a fish whisperer. I don't know how he does it. One minute, we’re fighting the waves, thinking we’re gonna spend the day swapping sea shanties, and the next, we’re reeling in trout like it’s a fish buffet. Captain Sean knows every nook and cranny of that ocean like it’s his backyard. And let’s not forget Abbie, the deckhand. She’s like the ninja of fishing. You need a new bait? She’s got it before you even ask. Tangled line? She’s on it. The only thing she can’t do is make your stepdad catch anything other than weird sea creatures. By the end of the trip, we had caught our limit. We were tired, sunburned, and grinning like idiots. It was one of those days you remember forever. If you’re looking for a fishing trip that’ll make you feel like you’re in a Hemingway novel, do yourself a favor and book with Captain Sean and Abbie. Five stars aren’t enough for these legends.
