Texas Gulf Coast Adventures

If you are ready to book that summer vacation or just want to have a fun-filled day with your friends, give Texas Gulf Coast Adventures a try.

Join the captain and explore the beautiful West Galveston or East Matagorda Bays. He stays on the water 7 days a week and never stops learning. Capt. Eric is also a great teacher so your skill level doesn’t matter.

Your day out on the water will see you light tackle fishing for Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder with artificial lures or live bait, which you will be able to purchase at an extra cost. All rods, reels, tackle, and lures will be provided for the trip. As well as that, Capt. Eric will clean your catch once you’re done fishing!

The trips are either 6 or 8 hours on the water, fishing from the boat or wading. The boat is a 25’ Gulf Coast bay boat, fresh on the water in 2018. It can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers to fish in comfort and style.

The bay boat comes powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine and has a GPS and a fishfinder on board to aid your search for the fish.

All you have to do is purchase a fishing license, pack your lunch and drinks, and hop on board! Capt. Eric will guide you through the basics and show you the most productive spots to wet a line.
