Join Captain Tim aboard “Explorer”, his spacious 25-foot center console. It comes powered by a 250 Suzuki engine and can comfortably take up to four anglers. The Explorer is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS and a fish finder and has an anchoring system and an ice-box, as well as a live bait tank.
Whether you want to fish for a half-day or a full-day, you will be fishing the pristine waters of Freeport/Galveston bay systems, chasing flounder, speckled trout, and tailing reds!
Captain Tim's favorite way to pursue these fish is with artificial lures and light spinning tackle. This way provides the most action and is the most rewarding way to trick these species into taking a ride on the end of your line. He does not throw artificial baits exclusively however, and if you are a beginner, Captain Tim will introduce you to light tackle live bait fishing first and likely work you into, wading, jigging, popping, and drift fishing.
Your trip will include rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Back at the dock after your adventure, Capt. Tim will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home and fill the freezer. So all you need to bring is your sunscreen, favorite beverages, and Texas fishing license and Captain Tim will take care of the rest!

Captain Tim was ready to fish at 6. Plenty of bait for the entire trip. Our group caught a lot of fish, spotted and sand trout, redfish, sheep heads, and a few sharks. The tide didn’t come in as it was supposed to, so keeper trout and reds were hard to find. Captain Tim did plenty of networking with his fellow guides to try and get us on more quality fish. From what we could gather, it was a tough day for everyone, based on what other guides were saying. Overall we had a great trip, and will book another trip with Captain Tim because of his no quit attitude and how hard he was trying to get us on big fish in less than ideal conditions. We had plenty of fish to make two meals out of feeding 8. Very happy with his service.
Had a blast today with captain Tim, his knowledge of the bays, areas and how to fish them was thoroughly impressive. He had us on the fish from the crack of down until the trip was over. Would definitely recommend. We can’t wait to get back out on the water with Mr “Mator!” #SticksWithRods Thank you Tim!
