Excellent experience. These guys know how to find fish. Four and five lines at a time. Continuous action. Caught a big Tuna, Barracuda and eight more fish. Mason the mate is great.

My husband and son had been on a similar trip in th gulf off shore Texas. This was my first deep sea/off shore we bay fish in Galveston and Trinity Bays monthly. I was a bit nervous. However first mate Derek made things interesting by talking about his expierences and the area. He taught us a lot.
Though not all our fish were keepers we had a lot of fighters we still caught enough to feed well over our family of three. Happy fishing!!!

All fishing trips start with high hopes and usually end nothing like what you expected. This trip was just that in the best way possible. A good Captain with a hard working experienced mate yielded a good time, plenty of action, lots of good fish and a wonderful experience. This trip the fishing matched the Captain and Mates efforts ... extraordinary!!
