    My wife and I had the honor of spending the day fishing with Captain Chris. This was by far the best fishing charter that we have been in. Chris’ experience level showed as he constantly put us on fish all day. We were is busy catching fish we did not even eat lunch! We came very close to limiting out on several species of fish. Chris even showed us tips in cleaning the fish and preparing them. If you are looking for a guide in this area, you will be greatly pleased with Captain Chris!

    Phil L. with Chris P. of Port Arthur, Texas

    Captain Alana was awesome! Very professional, had the boat clean and gear ready to go as soon as we got to the dock we were off. Boat was good size had plenty of room for everyone to walk around. Even took us close to the launch site to see the Space X Starship. She was constantly on the phone with other guides trying to find the best bite possible. We caught Speckled Trout, large Catfish and saw a bunch of large red drums but even hitting them in the head with the bait they wouldn't bite... Had a weather change and rockets going off in the area so may have had something to do with it. But we were the only boat that day really catching anything. I would highly recommend Captain Alana. Will decently book her for future visits to go Tarpon Fishing!!!

    Captain experience really did my group well! Great way to celebrate a bachelors party. They helped in many ways, especially when there was last minute adjustments needed due to weather. They were all in ! Captain Jason & Connor gave us the experience we needed !

    Crockett G. with Jason W. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    We did not have a good experience. The seas were very rough, we got sea sick, completely drenched and my husband fell out of his wheelchair when the boat hit a big wave at about mile 13 or 14. He was stayed seated on the floor of the boat as we attempted to continue out. After about 1.5 hours, we were less than 20 miles out, we decided to ask the captain to turn around.

    Gabriel D. with Danny D. of Port Aransas, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Jason had us on the fish early. Great day of fishing. Probably caught at least 30. Great day on the water with my family and very laid back Captain. Appreciate you Captain Jason and we will definitely be booking again

    Dustin H. with Jason W. of Galveston, Texas

    Our trips last Thursday and Friday were with Dan and Saul (both boats were Dan’s). I think both guys tried. Sometimes the fish bite and sometimes they don’t. That’s why they call it fishing and not catching. This said, I was unpleasantly surprised that most of both days we spent fishing for bait fish. And unless you tell me differently this was not in the plan. Given our travel cost the boat costs, I was and remain disappointed. Paul

    Captain Corey was awesome! He communicated with me the the whole time and was more than accommodating to my group. This was the first ever trip I booked and I definitely will be booking again. If you want a great time and a great captain this is your trip!!
