Corks And Croakers

Come enjoy an unforgettable day on the water with Corks And Croakers charters, launching out of Texas City. Learn to fish new techniques and create lasting memories on the water while reeling in your personal best!

Fishing with Captain Mike Cybak is not just about fishing, it’s about the whole experience. You’ll get to enjoy your day fishing all the hot spots in the Galveston Bay complex and learn the art of fishing with live bait.

You’ll also get to enjoy the comfort and safety of the 22’ Sea Pro bay boat. The vessel is fully rigged with Lowrance electronics, twice 10’ blade power poles, self-deploying Minn Kota trolling motor, Bluetooth sound system for your favorite playlist, compressed oxygen live well for lively bait, complimentary water, Gatorade, and snacks.

Bring your own favorite rods or use captain’s top of the line spinning or baitcasting rods. When you fish aboard his boat, all bait will be placed on your hook and all fish netted for you. All you need to do is catch the fish and hold them up for the pictures.

Experience the thrill of big Trout or Redfish blowing up on a topwater bait. Feel the pounding on the end of the line while fishing with soft plastics. You’ll also have a chance to reel in Flounder and Black Drum.

Some of the best fishing takes place in the winter months – the Galveston Flounder run and the massive schooling of Redfish and Trout. On the right days, you can find a flock of birds working over top of huge schools of fish feeding on shrimp.

Grab the soft plastics and throw into the feeding frenzy for an action-packed fishing experience. Fish with a popping cork and shrimp. Learn the art of live croaker fishing as the fish pound the bait and take off with while watching your line scream off the reel. Then lock it up as the rod bends in half.

Best of all, enjoy being out on the water! Let your mind escape from the daily responsibilities and just have fun fishing.

    Six hours gives you plenty of time to enjoy the day and get your money's worth. On some days, it's required to move around to stay on the fish and this trip gives you plenty of time to catch them. Also, if you would like to target multiple species, it may require a boat ride to different locations. Depending on your preferences, you'll have the opportunity to reel in Redfish, Trout, Drum, and Flounder.

I am the owner and the operator of Corks And Croakers and I have been fishing the Galveston Bay complex for over 15 years. Boating, fishing, and being on the water are the things I enjoy the most. I have participated in many charity tournaments and guided many anglers in preparation for such competitions. My biggest catch is a 29 inch Speckled Trout.
