About Your Trip

Captain Raymond Wheatley of Tail Spotter Guide Service will undoubtedly take you to where the fish are biting! Capt. Raymond has fished the waters of Texas City for his entire life, so pay close attention to his advice - you’ll be reelin’ in fish in no time.

On these 6-hour action-packed adventures, Captain Raymond will help you target Flounder, Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, and more! For these trips, Capt. Raymond uses a 24’ Haynie center console which can accommodate up to 4 anglers. Make sure to bring some good company!

All you need to bring is a valid Texas fishing license as well as some snacks and drinks of your choice (preferably no glass). Capt. Raymond will provide the rest. He will provide all rods, reels, tackle, and lures. He will also provide live bait, which he prepares before the trip, and will fillet your fish at the end of your trip free of charge.

We hope you have a good recipe for fish tacos!

About Your Guide

An avid angler his whole life, Captain Raymond decided to pursue fishing in retirement as a way to enjoy life and share his passion with others. After 20 years as an electrician and 15 years in the medical field, he's found a new lease on life, and can't wait to show you his local waters of the Galveston Bay Complex.

A native to the area, he knows these waters like the back of his hand, and promises to show you why fishing in Texas City is so dear to him!

Had a blast fishing the jetties, Raymond knew where we needed to be and when we needed to be there. Nice boat and rods, he makes his own, overall great experience. I will be going with him again.
