Multi Boat Galveston Bay Fishing
Redfish, or Red Drum, can put up quite the fight and they are often referred to as the fish that won’t quit. Redfish can be found in abundance in the Gulf of Mexico and have become one of the most sought after fish in the shallows of Texas. These guys like to travel in schools and when the tide is low we can often see them tailing on top of the water and target them by sight fishing. Redfish get their name from their coppery bronze color that has a tinge of red color. Normally, redfish have one spot on the base of their tails but often there are several spots. Redfish can be fished all year long, but the prime time for this fish is fall when the water is still warm! The best way to catch this elusive and tasty fish is to rely on the Captain Kerry and his team to show you how! They truly do know these waters like the back of their hand.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
We had the best time with Captain David! He was so nice and fun to fish with. I had never saltwater fished and he was very patient with me. She showed me how to bait the hook and did it for me until I was comfortable doing it myself. No judgement. He was an all around good guy! Took us to several spots and put us in fish every spot. We caught black drum, croakers and red drum. He took me to his Hail Mary spot ( shhh it’s a secret). And I caught a 15 pound Red Drum. He helped me step by step land it into the boat. It was so much fun and he was as excited as I was. We saw a mama and her baby dolphin and he took me as close as he could to them so I could get some pictures because he knew I was excited to see them. On the way back to the pier he told us some history and info about the things we were seeing. I will definitely book with Captain David next time we go down there.
Teresa L. with David R. of Baytown, Texas
Captain David was great. The weather and the tide was working hard against us and he worked harder to put us on fish. Great trip with a quality guide, I will be back.
