About Your Trip

If you’ve never fished the Galveston Bay system, you’re missing out. These productive waters are home to the “Texas Big Three” (Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout), Amberjack, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and many more species. On this 9-hour action-packed adventure, Captain David Rappelet of Bow to Stern Fishing Tours will help you reel ‘em all in.

Captain David conducts these trips using his 24’ Shallow Sport center console which can accommodate up to 4 anglers. This vessel is meant for those shallow hotspots and makes for a smooth ride to and from your destination.

When fishing with Captain David, you’ll specialize in light tackle, bottom fishing, spinning, and drift fishing. If you’re willing to try something new, Captain David can also accommodate fly fishing. You’ll need to bring your own gear.

Your captain will provide all rods, reels, tackle, and lures. He’ll also provide water, although feel free to bring your drinks. On these trips, he’ll even provide a “captain’s lunch,” so we hope you’re hungry! Make sure you bring a valid Texas saltwater fishing license.

Get ready for an exciting day of fishing with Captain David and Bow to Stern Fishing Tours!

In my head, like to think I’m a tough girl, but I’m really just a pink-wearing, I-don’t-want-to-get-dirty type of girly-girl. As soon as my two sons and I got in the boat, I realized that it would be an experience a little bit out of my comfort zone. David made the trip exciting & fun For my boys, who were immediately comfortable with him, joking around as if they’d known each other for years. He put up with my girly antics, poking a little fun at me (which my boys thought was hilarious) along the way, and he even put the bait on my hook for me every single time. (I couldn’t do it because that would require touching the shrimp) halfway through our trip, the boys were asking me if we could do this again. We definitely made memories that my boys will have forever, and we got to eat some good self-caught fish, too. We will book with captain David in the future, no question about it; I recommend him 100%.

Capt. David our my sons experience and overall safety first! Great experience, highly recommended- we had a great day on the water catching: skipjack, red fish (lots), sand trout, black drums, sheep head, croakers, piggy perch, and more! Thanks, Capt. David! See you again soon!

Captain Dave was amazing. We had some first time fisherman and young children with us and Dave really took the time to be instructive not only on equipment but the types of fish we were after and the area we were in. Funny, patient and most importantly productive, we limited out. Highly, highly recommend Bow to Stern especially if you have kids.
