    I can’t say enough great words to describe the experience we had with Captain Jonathan and Cody!! My main purpose on this trip was to make some great memories with my son and they over delivered!! From the booking process, to arrival, to the experience was all easy and top notch!!

We will definitely book another trip with them!!!

    Top stars for Captain Justin !! No only did we team up to land 12 out 15 redfish on the fly rod, but we had a great time fishing together. He knowledgeable of the Galveston backwater and highly skilled in positioning the boat for the cast and landing. A great person to fish with !!

    Dennis B. with Justin J. of Galveston, Texas

    The trip was great. We booked a 3 person trip with Capt Rick but we went fishing with Capt Doug. It was windy that day so the water was choppy, but we still cause 2 bill redfish about 36 inches each and a black drum about 30 inches around the Galvenston Jetties. We will definitely book another trip when we renew the fishing licenses and get new red drum tags.
