For a great saltwater fishing time, take a trip with Texas Coast Guide Service. Captain Henry enjoys fishing with everyone, from the beginner to the more experienced anglers. From family and friends, to company business trips, he promises you a fun and relaxing trip.

Fish aboard a 2021, 26’ Mowdy boat. This great center console provides a stable and comfortable ride throughout the day. There’s enough room for 4 guests to fish at the same time. She’s powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine that reaches the speed of 40 knots when needed. The boat also has a wireless trolling motor, when you need to sneak up on fish.

Texas is famous for its inshore fishing opportunities and you can go after Redfish, Black Drum, and Speckled Trout any time of year. But if you want more variety with your targets, go a few miles more off the coast and go after Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, and different types of Shark (Bull, Bonnethead, and Blacktip).

Kids are welcome to join these trips and they can also make a few attempts at their first catch ever!

Your fishing equipment is covered by the captain and he’ll also clean your catch free of charge. Make sure to purchase fishing licenses for all adults on the boat and pack your food and drinks. Sunglasses and hats are a good choice if you want to enjoy the trip to the max.

Have fun with Texas Coast Guide Service! You only need to pick one of the trips.

I started fishing with my grandfather in Trinity Bay when I was a kid staying with him during the summers. I have always maintained a love for saltwater fishing and, as I grew older, I developed my skills and knowledge as a fisherman. I love teaching beginners, to see the excitement in their faces when they catch a good fish and land it by themselves.
