Fresh N Salty welcomes you to Galveston, Texas. Head inshore to the Galveston Bay, Matagorda, or travel further off the shore for a memorable day of fishing. Having been working with kids for the past 28 years, Captain Lebbeus Kemp invites you to bring the young ones and let them create beautiful lifetime memories out on the sea. Wade and drift fishing are also possible, as Captain Lebbeus can accommodate serious anglers as well.

You’ll fish from a 24’ NauticStar center console that sits up to 5 guests and runs on a 250 HP Yamaha engine. The boat uses GPS, fishfinder, and radio for navigation, features a wireless trolling motor and an ice-box, and is rigged with a livewell.

The species you can target include Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, Red Snapper, as well as Redfish. On light and heavy tackle, you’ll attract them by trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, as well as drift fishing. You can keep your catch if you want to and you’re encouraged to bring your young ones on the trip. Just keep in mind that smoking isn’t allowed.

Captain Lebbeus will supply you with all the rods, reels, tackle, and lures, and will clean your catch when the trip’s over. You’ll only need fishing licenses and the food and drinks of your choice.

Come have an unforgettable angling adventure with Fresh N Salty!

Member since May 2021
Captain Lebbeus has been a daycare owner and martial arts instructor for the past 28 years and an auctioneer for the past 21 years. He has spent the last 20 years fishing as much as he could at the lakes and coast. Galveston Bay and Matagorda are his favorite fishing places, but he's fished from Sabine to South Padre. He's been an instructor, teacher, and mentor for the past 30 years, and would love to continue teaching on the water.
