About Your Trip

Join Captain David for 2-full days of fishing in Galveston Bay’s productive waters!

You’ll start your trip at Thompson’s Bait Camp. From there, Captain David will take you out on the water for 5-6 hours. The Galveston Bay system is home to the “Texas Big Three” (Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout), plus Amberjack, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Shark, and many more species. Captain David will help you reel ‘em all in!

You’ll return to Thompson’s Bait
Camp where Captain David and his crew will clean and fillet your fish. Captain David will then cook you a “captain’s lunch” from your day’s catch. Captain David will then take you back out on the water for 4-5 hours where you will test your casting accuracy once again.

You will return to Thompson’s Bait Camp just in time for dinner. Captain David will cook you your day’s catch as you watch the sunset from the camp’s dock.

You’ll stay at a hotel provided by Captain David (included in the cost of the trip) and return the following morning bright and early for another productive day of fishing!

**Day 2**

Captain David will have breakfast ready for you on the dock upon your arrival. You may also bring your own food if you like, although Captain David is an amazing cook. You’ll then hit the water for 6-8 hours where the Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout will be awaiting your arrival.

Learn to fish new techniques and create lasting memories on the water while reeling in your personal best with Captain David!

I had an absolutely great experience on this trip! Dave went to great lengths to prepare for the trip and make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Despite hot weather during early season, we still bagged a few ducks and Dave cleaned them for me at the boat launch. Highly recommend!

We had the best time with Captain David! He was so nice and fun to fish with. I had never saltwater fished and he was very patient with me. She showed me how to bait the hook and did it for me until I was comfortable doing it myself. No judgement. He was an all around good guy! Took us to several spots and put us in fish every spot....

She showed me how to bait the hook and did it for me until I was comfortable doing it myself. No judgement. He was an all around good guy! Took us to several spots and put us in fish every spot. We caught black drum, croakers and red drum. He took me to his Hail Mary spot ( shhh it’s a secret). And I caught a 15 pound Red Drum. He helped me step by step land it into the boat. It was so much fun and he was as excited as I was. We saw a mama and her baby dolphin and he took me as close as he could to them so I could get some pictures because he knew I was excited to see them. On the way back to the pier he told us some history and info about the things we were seeing. I will definitely book with Captain David next time we go down there.

3 hunters, 6 shots fired at 1 duck that was way too far. Guide couldn’t put us within range to shoot, water was so low that I measured 90 yards from cover to waters edge in one spot, I have never been on a paid hunt where I never even fired a round.

Dave took my 8 year old son and I out and we had a great time! He did a good job putting us on some ducks despite less than ideal conditions and even less than ideal shooting by me! Already looking forward to getting back out with him later in the season. See you soon, Dave!

Captain David was great. The weather and the tide was working hard against us and he worked harder to put us on fish. Great trip with a quality guide, I will be back.

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!
