About Your Trip

Captain Stan knows exactly where to go to find those trophy-sized fish! He has 15+ years of experience as a professional guide and 35+ in the Texas Coastal Bay system - listen closely and you’ll be reelin’ in the big dawgs in no time.

Captain Stan will tailor your trip any way you choose! He provides inshore fishing in both Matagorda Bay and the Middle Texas Coast. He’ll take you to the flats where you
can wade fish or fish from the boat. You can also drift or anchor in the back lakes for Redfish.

Expect to target Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout / Spotted Seatrout, Tripletail on these 5-hour (half-day) and 8-hour (full day) adventures. You’ll be fishing on Captain Stan’s 24’ Tran Sport Cat Boats center console. This vessel can accommodate up to 4 anglers. These trips are family-friendly as well. Captain Stan loves teaching the little ones about the species that call Matagorda Bay home.

You’ll need to bring a Texas Saltwater Fishing License. Captain Stan will provide all rods (not furnished for wade fishing), reels, and tackle. You can bring food and drinks, but you may also request lunch, snacks, and/or drinks to be provided for an additional fee. You can also purchase live bait for an extra cost.

Just sit back, relax, and enjoy some quality fishing on the beautiful Texas Gulf Coast with Captain Stan!

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!
