For these trips, Captain Ryan uses “Miss Celina” - a 46’ Bertram Classic. Her amenities include a refit salon with varnished floors, a surround sound speaker system, a flat-screen satellite TV, and a complete galley that includes a full-size refrigerator and deck freezers. It also boasts a fully outfitted lavatory, including a shower and a half bath.
Captain Ryan requires that you bring a valid Texas Fishing License with a saltwater stamp as well as some food and drinks for the trip. Other than that, Capt. Ryan will cover the rest! He and his crew will provide the necessary rods, reels, and tackle. He will also provide live bait. You can bring an ice chest for your day’s catch if you’d like, although Capt. Ryan will have one on board.
