About Your Trip

Hit the water with Captain Daniel for an exciting day of bay fishing! The inshore canals and bays around Port Aransas are home to some of the world's best inshore fishing, so get ready to catch some fish!

On this 6-hour adventure, Captain Daniel will motor out west to the Corpus Christi Bay, east to Aransas Bay, or north to Redfish Bay where you'll be going after exciting bay fish such as Black Drum, Flounder,
Redfish, and Speckled Trout. You can go after these fish with a few different methods, and this boat is equipped for bottom fishing, heavy tackle, jigging, light tackle, and trolling. The crew of Captain Daniel will guide you every step of the way. The crew especially loves teaching kids and beginners everything about the different fish species available in this area, as well as fishing techniques.

For these trips, you'll be aboard a 23' Parker center console with a capacity of 4 anglers. This balanced vessel is designed for inshore waters and will have no problem getting you to where the fish are biting! She comes equipped with all the essential navigational gear as well as a wireless trolling motor.

Captain Daniel will supply all rods and reels, tackle and bait. All you need to bring is a valid Texas Fishing License with a saltwater stamp for those over 16 years of age, food and drinks of your choice (no bananas), and comfortable life jackets if you are traveling with children. Captain Daniel will clean any keepers for you to take home.

Get ready to have an adventure out on the bay with Captain Daniel!

The crew gives their full attention to every guest who comes aboard, and they're excited to fish with experienced and beginner anglers alike. Captain Danny and the team especially like teaching kids and beginners
about fish species and the fishing techniques they’ve learned from generations of living right here on the Gulf of Mexico.

Captain Danny is a third generation fisherman, so starting his own fishing services was in his blood. He grew up on the water, and had a boat before he even had a truck to tow it!

Captain Danny loves teaching young and new anglers about deep sea fishing, and he’s especially proud of the customers who come back to fish with him every year. When he’s not working, you can find Captain Danny hanging out with his family, and enjoying the day’s catch.

Every trip with Captain Danny includes top of the line fishing gear including poles, tackle, and accessories, ice chests to keep your food and drink cold all day long, and live bait.

Capt Blake and deckhand Bryson were awesome. The Truly Blessed is a nice yacht disguised as a fishing boat. Nice accommodations with an excellent A/C even on the bridge. We picked up a load of snapper and a nice wahoo while trolling.

Had a great time on the 8 hour trip. We caught snappers then went hunting for bonus fish. Communication with the business and our captain was great. We showed up later than planned but our captain was flexible. Danny's was a great choice.

Great trip with James (AKA Grandpa) seas were a little rough but that's too be expected. Had a Member of our group get very ill and not only was James's first thought his safety but we cut our trip short and he even discounted the fees. Very thankful and will use them again. I can't put the review in and not mention Daryl, his mate, as well. To notch crew!!

Captain said meet at 8 at dock. We got there early. Captain picked us up early but then spent the next hour looking for live shrimp and fuel. Then he tried to have me buy more shrimp and got into a heated argument with shrimp sales lady about not giving him enough. It was a bit cringy. On top of that fish weren’t biting. Not the captains fault on that one but over was unimpressed.

Very nice 8 hours of fishing.
Only caught 3 barracuda but i don't hold the captain responsible for how hungry the fish are. I'm told it was early season.

My one complaint is that instead of the fish cleaning being included in the price and service, we had to take it to the fish house on the marina and pay $15 more.

At 6:30am, the mate was getting the boat ready...captain came out from cabin at 6:45 and invited us to board. Pulled out around 7am. Captain tells us that we're going to fish mainly for wahoo, but might get some blackfin tuna. Both great eating fish. Takes us out about 40 miles, and puts us on a school of Jack Crevalle...we land 3. Fun to catch, but they are junk fish. Rather than move to other fish, he stayed for 2.5 hours in the same area. We caught nothing but Jack Crevalle's and one Barracuda. They tried to tell us that Barracuda are excellent to eat (thats why you see them on every restaurant menu). After 2.5 hours of fishing, they ran out of bait, so then drove to another area to bottom fish for an hour...never got a bite. 8 hour trip over in 7. The mate was an excellent dude, the captain was a dud. Won't be back...don't waste your money on this charter

We did not have a good experience. The seas were very rough, we got sea sick, completely drenched and my husband fell out of his wheelchair when the boat hit a big wave at about mile 13 or 14. He was stayed seated on the floor of the boat as we attempted to continue out. After about 1.5 hours, we were less than 20 miles out, we decided to ask the captain

Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass.

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs.

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!
