Lastly, you can also enjoy nearshore trips chasing Sharks and Tarpon in the summertime aboard Captain
LG's 25' Boston Whaler. The boat is powered by a 300HP Yamaha outboard that gets you where the fish are fast!

Rods, reels, tackle, and artificial lures are covered, and Captain LG is happy to provide live bait at an additional fee.

Captain LG is a hard-working, hard-laughing fishing guide who's only interested in showing you the best time possible on the water. He's great with kids and knows how to make everyone smile- luckily for you, that usually involves catching fish!

Had a great day fishing Galveston Bay with our Guide Captain LG. So much fun to watch my daughters land keeper speckled trout. From Booking our day trip to having our fish cleaned and bagged couldn’t have been an better. Big thanks to Jonathan at Captain Experiences who actually answered his phone at 7:00 in the morning after I got lost!

We had a great time with Capt LG. Weather was not good but LG found fish and we had fun time. His location at Galveston Yacht Basin is really convenient for people staying on the Island. Will definitely fish with him again and weather permitting will try the jetties next time!.

Boat captain was accommodating on pick up and drop off. We purchased a 5 hour trip inlet. My child was sea sick shortly into the first lines being dropped. We asked to take her back. After we went back out we weren’t “guided” so much. The man dropped the lines in the water and then kind of sat back. We had to ask questions and for guidance. When we didn’t do something correctly for him we were not so much guided through the process of what he wanted or expected from us, just when we were doing something wrong it felt like we were with a cranky dad.
Pick up at 630 a.m.
At ten he said we had thirty minutes left. I said forget it just pack it up. We had only cought a couple catfish and a baby shark.
We weren’t offered to keep or photo or clean anything. He just threw them
Back in the water. $750? I’d say skip this trip for sure. Not impressed at all. Let’s add on the way to drop off my sick daughter who was already crying and feeling bad for impacting the vacation, he was talking about her in front of her on the phone making her feel worse. Repeating over and over he had a seasick one and chuckling.
Also kept telling my son he was slow as a frog and telling him he couldn’t pay attention to any dang thing- as well as duh. Duh. Duh. When he made an observation. If I wasn’t in the middle of the ocean on another man’s property I would have been much more vocal. Kind of feel like your in an unsafe situation if you can’t feel comfortable telling your guide to stop talking shit about your kids

Response from Captain Experiences:
Hey Dawn, this definitely does not sounds like the kind of experience we want our customers to have. We never want anyone to feel unsafe out on the water and will have a chat with LG about the behavior you witnessed. I hope we can make things right if you and your family are willing to try again. Please give us a call and we will get you hooked up!

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!
