Great trip with Captain Shannon! He found the big Redfish this morning. The boat was clean and ready to go as scheduled. I took home a limit of Redfish and released many more. I recommend this guide to anyone looking for a great time fishing!

Pat is such a great guide and a character!! He breaks it down so simply and gets you right on the fish. I will most certainly be booking another trip with him!!

Cole and Anthony were excellent hosts and expert guides. We started off catching bait fish and then moved on to hunt for the big ones. We were successful and had a great time. The boat was the perfect size for 5 of us. I would definitely recommend Capt. Cole and will definitely charter with him in future.

What an absolute blast! Tim was a true gentleman, he took very good care of us. We began our day with a beautiful sunrise graced by God, followed by old country tunes, and FISH aplenty - we caught 6 red and 2 speckled trout. Tonight I’m cooking the speckled trout with a garlic lemon butter herb sauce and a side of roasted asparagus. This was such a memorable experience that we will treasure. Thank you, Captain Tim.

We had a great day fishing with Captain Joaquin. He showed us the techniques we needed to use and was able to put us on the fish. Highly recommended.

Ian B. with Joaquin Pena of Port Isabel, Texas

★★★★★
This was without a doubt the best fishing trip I have been on. Justin was the best captain because he went well above and beyond anything he had to do to give us an incredible experience. I got to fight a shark for over 45 minutes and he was there in every way to help. You can tell anyone who asks they need to go out with Captain Justin! I assure you that everyone I know will have his information and I will be back as soon as I can. Thanks Captain Justin for an amazing trip!

Cpt. Drew took my father, uncle, cousin, and I out for a four our trip and I couldn’t have been more impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, and spirit. He knew all the tricks to get us going, and within minutes, we had our first catch. We caught over 15 fish on our trip and brought a few home for dinner! Will be looking forward to booking him next year as well!

It was great even though we had a little bad weather. The Captain was awesome and put use on fish right when we left. The deck hand was great and helped everyone out and kept us going. I would so use them again and again.

JAMES C. with Harold Staples of Destin, Florida

★★★★★
Raul and Captain Pepe were awesome! Captain Pepe is one of the best fishermen I've ever fished with and often fishes in large tournaments. We caught a marlin and mahi-mahi and later got the mahi-mahi prepared to eat at a restaurant. The only critique is Captain Pepe's English wasn't very good if you weren't talking about fishing, but regardless he knew everything there is to know about fishing. Highly recommend.

Capt Marshall did an excellent job of putting us on the fish ! We started out in the surf but got tossed around pretty good. The capt. made the decision to take us inland to the Brazos river where we moved around a bit while catching a wide verity of keepers including a tagged bull red , speckled trout , flounders and others enough to fill the cooler box ! All in all , fantastic morning of fishing inshore. Thanks Capt Marshall !

Fred C. with Rodney Harper of Freeport, Texas

Took me and my son out and taught us how to fish the bay; not just go out and catch fish. And yes we hit our limits while doing so. Will definitely go out with again in the future. Had a blast wade fishing.

Had the best time with Captain Carson. It was our first time bass fishing outside the Midwest and he was an excellent guide and great at teaching us some new techniques. He was very knowledgable about the area, and has experience with all sorts of fishing from river and lake to offshore. Shared some great stories, had an awesome experience, and plan to be going out again! Thanks again Carson!

Our trip with Gulf Bay charters with Captain Rick and his first rate deckhand Logan was fantastic. They put us on multiple fish of different types and we tried different methods, some trolling, a lot of bottom fishing and some deep water with electric reels. We caught a lot of large triggerfish, three King mackerels and enough Mingo (vermillion) snapper that we had far too much fish to eat over the next two days. The boat was fantastic, offering the six of us more than enough space to spread out and all fish at once, and Logan was knowledgeable and efficient at everything. I really enjoyed catching a small shark and we had a larger one steal some of our fish to add a little excitement. Near the end of the day we had a large amberjack up to the boat but unfortunately he got off. We played with a few barracuda as well, caught a few snapper and small groupers that we couldn't keep and in between spots, we could chat and I enjoyed learning about the local waters and the trade. I personally caught 22 fish and my son got 21 so we were busy. The weather was near perfect and Rick adeptly steered us around a small storm, where we got to see a waterspout. I would highly recommend Gulf Bay - we had a blast and really enjoyed getting to learn from a couple of true professionals. Thank you Captain Rick, thank you Logan!
