About Your Trip

Come and explore this fishing paradise and make some everlasting memories with Captain Bryan Ray!

Capt. Bryan has been a professional guide for almost 40 years, so listen closely to his advice - he’ll be sure to take you where the fish are biting!

For these trips, Capt. Bryan uses a 35’ Tiara express cruiser, an ideal vessel for offshore fishing in the Gulf, which can accommodate up to 6 people. The inside of the cabin is air-conditioned, features a private toilet and kitchen, and has ample seating. You can expect to primarily chase Sail Fish but could also get some bites from Dolphin Fish, Grouper, and various species of Shark on your 8-hour adventure.

All you need to bring is a valid Texas Fishing License and Capt. Bryan will provide the rest - rods, reels, tackle, lures, and even live bait! Make sure to bring any food and drinks of your choice as well.

Enjoy an action-packed day on the water with Captain Bryan!
