For a great day of fishing in Texas, book a trip with Express Fisheries today. Captain Chris Payne was born and raised fishing the Galveston Bay area and has fished both commercially and recreationally here for the past 34 years.
Spend the day on his 28’ pilothouse boat. This is a large and stable platform, perfect for family groups and customers who want a more comfortable ride. There is an enclosed cabin to escape the midday sun and plenty of space on the deck for groups of 6 to fish comfortably.
Species vary depending on where you end up fishing but can include Red Snapper, Flounder, Red Drum (Redfish), Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Jack Crevalle, Blacktip Shark, and plenty more. The captain will let you know what can be kept and will fillet your catch for you at the end of the trip, so have a cooler in the car to transport your catch home.
Capt. Chris offers a trip for everyone, no matter your skill level or age. You can fish the bay, jetty, or head offshore, which can all be customized to your preferences. There is no minimum age for children and life vests are provided for them.
You can also go spearfishing for Sheepshead and Snapper. This can be arranged for experienced divers and spearfishermen only – you’ll need to bring your own equipment for this.
Conventional rods and reels are included in the price of the trip. You’ll need to buy a fishing license before the day of the trip and on most trips it’s recommended to buy live bait. This can be done at the marina on the morning of the charter. Don’t forget your food and drinks, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat, and you’re ready to go.
All that’s left to do is book a trip with Express Fisheries today. Capt. Chris looks forward to welcoming you on board and catching fish together.
