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

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!

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

    I have fished all over the world and been a guide myself for many years and I would highly recommend the fishing experience Captain Russell provides. If you are wanting to take your family out for a great afternoon of fishing Captain Russell is who you need to book with hands down. He had us on fish early and often despite the windy conditions. My youngest, who is 7, caught his personal best on this trip. We will definitely be back to fish with Captain Russell again!

    Christopher T. with Russell R. of Port Isabel, Texas

    My son and I went out with Rueben and had a great time. It was a windy day and the fish weren’t initially biting but he took us to a bunch of different spots and we hauled in a few redfish. He was a great role model for my son who wants to be a fishing guide someday. Would definitely go out with him again.
