Embark on an action-packed 24-hour long offshore adventure with Captain Michael! You will target Swordfish, Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Tilefish, Wahoo, Amberjack, and Grouper—some of the biggest fish in the Gulf! Depending on the types of fish you want to catch, Captain Michael might recommend that you leave early in the morning and return the following morning, or leave mid-day to fish overnight and come back the next day. On these extra long trips, you'll have the opportunity to head over 80 miles off the coast to the Flower Garden Banks reefs, some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world! Surrounded by bottomless blue waters, the Flower Garden reefs protrude from the ocean floor atop underwater hills and salt domes and bring buzzing underwater communities closer to the surface. Get ready to see some manta rays, massive coral heads, and hundreds of species of fish. Captain Michael will provide all of the fishing bait and tackle. All you need to bring is a Texas saltwater fishing license for those over 16 years of age, sunscreen, as well as some food and drinks. You might want to stretch a little before the trip - it’s not uncommon to catch lots of big fish with Captain Michael. 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!
