Come on down to Galveston, Texas and enjoy a fishing escapade to remember! Captain Derek will be by your side throughout your 4-hour adventure exploring the Galveston Bay Complex. He’ll launch these trips out of Trinity Bay, West Bay, or East Bay depending on the weather and where the fish are biting harder....Read More
He’ll help you target Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, using live bait (shrimp and croaker) and artificial bait. You may purchase extra live bait for an additional price. If you would like to wade fish, let Captain Derek know, he is more than willing to accommodate! For these trips, Captain Derek uses his 21’ Saber Cat bay boat which can accommodate up to 4 anglers. This boat is the perfect vessel for exploring Galveston's inshore waters and comes loaded with a power pole anchoring system, a Minn Kota trolling motor, iced down coolers for your snacks and drink, and cushioned seats. Captain Derek is also passionate about teaching little ones the ropes, so this trip is great for families!
Make sure you bring a valid Texas saltwater fishing license, food and drinks of your choice, a hat, sunscreen, and an ice chest for your day’s catch. Captain Derek will provide all of the best rods, reels, and lures, and will even offer to clean and fillet your fish at no additional cost after you've loaded up the box!
Captain Derek's Charter business is veteran-owned and was established in October 2020. Captain Derek is a lifetime fisherman with experience all around the Galveston and Matagorda Bay complex. He provides gigging, boat, wade, and drift fishing trips primarily targeting the Texas Big Three: Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only catch fish, but show you a great time on the water, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.

Just show your guide your QR code on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to go fishing. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
