About Your Trip

Come join Captain Bryan on a thrilling fishing adventure at Calaveras Lake, Texas! Located just a short drive from San Antonio, Calaveras Lake is home to a diverse array of fish, including the coveted freshwater Redfish. These fish are stocked in the lake every year, providing a totally unique opportunity for Texas anglers to catch their state's most popular saltwater gamefish without heading to the coast!

After you board Bryan's 21' Carolina center console, you'll
be set to go. The boat is stocked with all the necessary gear, including top-of-the-line rods, reels, and lures, as well as plenty of ice-cold drinks and snacks to keep you energized throughout the day.

As you set off onto the shimmering waters of Calaveras Lake, Captain Bryan will take you to the best fishing spots, using his years of experience and local knowledge to find the biggest and most elusive Redfish. The lake is known for its clear, shallow waters and abundant vegetation, providing the perfect habitat for these prized game fish.

As you cast your line into the water, you'll feel the adrenaline rush as you wait patiently for a bite. When a Redfish takes the bait, the fight is on! These hard-fighting fish will put up a good fight, testing your strength and skill as you try to reel them in. In addition, you can hook up Catfish and Striped Bass, both of which are also a blast to catch and solid table fare as well.

As the day draws to a close, you'll return to the dock with memories of a lifetime and, if you're lucky, a cooler full of delicious fish to take home and share with friends and family.

Why wait? Book your fishing charter with Captain Bryan now and experience the thrill of freshwater Redfish fishing at Calaveras Lake, Texas!

Bryan can put you on the fish! Caught & released plus or minus 25 reds in about 3 hours, and at 2 points we had four fish on the lines at the same time. Freshwater reds are a bucket lister for anyone.

My boyfriend and I had so much fun out on the water with Capt. Bryan for our trip. We had booked the charter as a joint graduation present for the both of us and it was an experience to remember. Capt. Bryan was knowledgeable about the waters, the fish, and was very personable. We went home with our limit and would recommend Capt. Bryan to anyone for a great time!
