We had an incredible time. Captain Jonathan and Anthony are friendly, safe and courteous. They made our trip extremely enjoyable. We will definitely be back with our kids next time and look forward to another amazing trip with you all!
Brought the kids to Galveston for spring break and they decided they wanted to go fishing. We ended up getting a trip with Captain Jonathan from Reel Men Fishing. The trip by far exceeded our expectations. Captain Jonathan was great! He brought us right to the fish and we were catching them all afternoon. What started out as something fun for the kids ended up being a great day for everyone. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Galveston and we all look forward to going again!
My husband wanted to go fishing but I get bored in 20 minutes, so I was a bit skeptical of the whole thing. Plus, I had this image in my head of the Perfect Storm or Deadliest Catch. Totally, not like that! Ladies, if your man wants to take you along, GO! I can promise you won't be bored. We caught flounder, sheephead, stingray, mud eel, sand trout, a few shrimp stealing crabs and black drum. I have flounder in my freezer waiting to be cooked. They cleaned and filleted it for me. Be prepared to do some catch and release not everything is big enough to keep or good eating and there is a catch limit. Sidenote: Ladies, don't look for a loo onboard. Take care of business before you go and don't drink 4 cups of coffee beforehand. Reel Men Fishing and Captain JoJo are amazing! Great company, experienced and knowledgeable. They have everything you need just bring a hunger to fish, your own snacks and water. I highly recommend this adventure!
The kids had a great time and the captain and his assistant were very knowledgeable.
The boat, captain (Bryan), and equipment were top-notch. He put us on catfish and trout first thing and we caught one roughly every other minute. We then used the trout as bait for sharks and caught 4 nice Sandbars. Seeing my nephew catch a shark was the highlight of our trip.
