We’re kicking off our first Captain Experiences Captain’s Corner blog with a Trip Recap. Our trip with Captain Lee aboard the Tequila Sunrise was truly the trip of a lifetime for more reasons than you can count.

I met Mark at our Captain Experiences booth at the Houston Boat Show. I told him about how Captain Experiences makes booking a fishing charter quick and easy, and he was all in. He requested a 12-person Galveston offshore tuna fishing trip for his group of devoted fishermen, and that was that.

Captain's Corner: Galveston Fishing Report with Capt. L.G.
March 13, 2020

Galveston Spring break action is in full swing- bull Black Drum, Sheepshead, and slot Redfish are here and they're hungry!

At the jetties, bull Black Drum are red hot on tide fluctuations. Heavy morning fog can complicate hitting the tidal outflows/inflows on time but they're biting if you can get there!

Capt. LG and his groups caught 10+ drum yesterday (3/12/20), a few Redfish, and a few Sheepshead. The bull Black Drum are chomping best on cracked crab.
