Captain Bob Leonard of Speck-Tackler Guide Service will use his 40+ years of experience fishing the Galveston Bay complex to help you catch some trophy-sized fish!
Capt. Bob specializes in "live croaker fishing" for big Speckled Trout from June - September. Live shrimp and artificial baits are the bait of choice during the other times of the year.
On these 6-hour (half-day) and 8-hour (full day) adventures, you’ll be fishing on Captain Bob’s 24' Kenner center console, powered by a 225 HP Evinrude E-Tec outboard.
Capt. Bob furnishes all the bait and the finest in fishing tackle. Tackle includes "All Star" rods and "Shimano" reels. After each trip, Captain Bob cleans and bags the catch while the customers partake of a cold beverage or fine meal at the TopWater Grill located at his home port of April Fool Point Marina in San Leon, Texas.
Make sure you bring a valid Texas saltwater fishing license, food and drinks for the day, and a cooler to take home your day’s catch. Speck-Tackler Guide Service will provide all rods, reels, and tackle, but feel free to bring your own.
