These waters are home to all kinds of inshore denizens but you can expect to target the Texas "Big Three", Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. You’ll mainly use light tackle to the bays for these fun and delicious fish, but depending on the day, weather, and tides, Captain Payton may have a secret method to show you for hooking into them!
All fishing equipment is included in the price and bottled water is also available on the boat. Feel free to pack drinks and snacks for the day, just don’t forget to bring your Texas fishing license and Capt. Payton will take care of the rest to ensure you have a fantastic fishing experience!

Captain Payton has been fishing this area for over 10 years! He just recently became a guide, so he can spread his knowledge and enjoyment with others and teach from experience
Great trip. Captain Payton was great and taught us a lot. Fish were not really biting, but we got a few Speckled Trout, a hardhead and one big 41” Bull Red Drum. Captain worked hard and took us to numerous spots, but finally the kids wore out and we came on in. Would certainly use Captain Payton again.
Had a blast out on the water with Captain Payton. He has a nice, good sized boat, lots of good gear and live bait, and knows all the good spots. We had a slow start, but he would not settle until we each got a fish on the boat. We each ended up with an awesome Red Drum. Captain Payton is very personable, knowledgeable, and fun to hang out with on the water. Thanks for a great experience that we will never forget!
We had a great time. The boat ride out in the morning was really cold but our fault for not bundling up enough. Payton was very attentive to us and within minutes of stopping we already had a couple of keepers in the boat and even though many of our fish were to small to keep we were pretty steadily catching something all day. Also even when our time should have been up we were still getting bites and payton was willing to stay a little longer while we were catching fish. Would recommend and will definitely book again with him. Just probably on a much much warmer day.
Enjoyed our trip with Capt Peyton. Caught our limits on reds, caught a 24 inch trout, a few other small fish. Peyton’s boat was awesome and his gear was set up well. I enjoyed how he let us cast our own line and get the overall best experience. Through rain and sunshine he led us to the best spots. Peyton filleted all fish at the end too which is a plus!
