About Your Trip

Adventure through the West Bay, East Bay, and Trinity Bay with Captain Ralph, a highly touted guide with 40+ years of fishing experience! Stay on the lookout for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder, three of Texas’ most sought-after game fish. You can choose between a 4, 6, and 8-hour trip, depending on how much fishing you want to do in one day. It should be smooth sailing as you navigate the bays in search of the rock piles and jetties where you can find these delicious inshore fish.

Captain Ralph can fit up to 6 people on the spacious deck of his 26' center console, so bring your family and friends along for the adventure. The vessel is powered by a 350hp Suzuki engine, which will speed you around the bay complex. You will be fishing with light tackle and live bait stored in the live bait well. There is also a cooler on board where you can store your catch during the trip. You should bring a cooler in your car though to keep the fish fresh on the drive home.

Besides a cooler, all you need to bring are some snacks, a valid Texas fishing license, and some good company! Captain Ralph provides all the rods, reels, live bait, and tackle. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing and check the weather in the days before your trip. A hat and sunblock are always a good idea, so you don't get too crispy out on the water.

We booked with captain Ralph but we're switched to captain r
Ryan. Both were great on the phone and informed us what to expect. Ryan was fantastic. Myself and two sons caught plenty of fish. I would highly recommend. We did the 6 hour trip.

Ralph did a great job with us. He made sure the kids were having a good time even though the fish weren’t biting really well. He worked his tail off trying to get us on the fish and we did catch a few.

Captain Ralph was absolutely amazing. He helped my fiance' every step of the way since it was her second time ever fishing, and made her feel comfortable. He was personable, fun, patient, and incredibly kind. He got us hooked up with some massive bull reds and went above and beyond to try to get us hooked up as much as possible. I will reccommend him a million times over. This was such an unbelievable experience...

We had a great experience using Ralph's guiding service. Our guide, Bo, showed off his decades of experience out on the water, and took us to some of Galveston Bay's best hot spots. The fish were biting all day, and we managed to catch a couple of good-sized trout.

Bo even cleaned and filleted the trout for us after the trip. We'll be using Ralph's guides again, and will certainly be using Captain Experiences for any future adventure bookings.

It was set up and ready to go I received an email on the morning of the trip saying everything was good to go. We drove 3 hours to the location that was provided. We arrived and waited until after 6:00 AM. Nobody ever showed up. I called the only phone number provided by Captain Experiences nobody answered. Finally we found the Captains phone number on Facebook and called him. He let us know that the trip was canceled yesterday and I ask why I was not notified at all? A simple text-email-phone call could have changed everything for my family and I. My suggestion to Captain Experiences is give everyone the Captains information so the trip can be verified the day before. Sorry I would not recommend this company to anyone!

Captain Ralph was very accommodating and picked them up at the Moody Gardens Marina (we were staying at the hotel) and this was super convenient.

Thanks, Captain Ralph, for a great experience!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
