Skunk Fishing

Howdy everyone, I’m new to FishingBooker, but not to guiding. If spending time on the water and making memories is what you’re looking for, then look no further. Just across the Galveston causeway right as you get on the island is where I launch from in a private gated marina. You will receive a code after booking to get into the automatic gate to park near my boat, which is covered under the wet slip. Here we have air-conditioned bathrooms and other amenities that are onsite for your use.

The day on the water…
Right now, I am running our winter hours for the trips. We will start all trips at 9 am to let the water and ourselves warm up. The weather allows us to fish throughout the day! No worrying about beating the heat!
Even though my trips are labeled as 6-hours, my trips have no set time limit, as I do not believe in hurrying back to the dock to dump you off, especially if the fish aren’t cooperative. We are here for memories and the experience so lets make the best of it!

We will be in a newer 24-foot bay boat with plenty of seating and room for a comfortable and safe time.
I can provide all rods and tackle needed to fish from the boat with lures or bait. I will also provide ice, water, and bait(if wanted) for every trip. Snacks and any drinks other than water will be on the customer. Alcohol is undoubtedly allowed.

Catching and releasing is recommended, but keeping fish is not an issue. I just ask you to please keep what you know you will eat, and release the rest.

I certainly do not mind taking a break from fishing and letting you enjoy the day however you’d like. Sightseeing, bird/dolphin watching, going to a restaurant on the water, hopping out of the boat, and having a drink is certainly not out of the ordinary. I’m all for a good time.

Message me for any info. I look forward to being your host!

    This is more of a budget-friendly trip. These are for those who can make it on the weekdays and be more flexible with the trip. This can be a wading trip as well as a boat trip. Weekday trips will run shorter than weekend trips and more of a fun time trip rather than a hardcore fish-catching focused trip. Good times will certainly still be had!

    We will target Specks and Reds using lures or bait. These trips are for the more experienced and serious anglers. These trips require a lot of gear that is specific for the angler, so please reach out to me if you don't have all the gear you need. These are my favorite trips to run as the catch rate is greater than fishing from the boat. Wade fishing in TX is popular and safe. We will spend the day bouncing around from spot to spot locating fish. Of course, boat fishing is possible on these trips too.

    These trips are for anglers who want to enjoy the ease of fishing from the boat and the day on the water. We will target all species with lures or bait. I can provide any gear needed! We can accommodate any group and do other water-related activities, such as partying on the sandbar, going to a restaurant by boat, bird/dolphin watching, or sightseeing. This is your day! The trip has no time limit. I love being out on the water and will not be out-fished!
