Book your next trip with Prime Gancho Charters and find out what keeps anglers coming back to Houston for more. Captain David will be your guide, giving you access to years of sportfishing experience.

These waters are known for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and more – with any luck, you’ll find out for yourself! On the day of your trip, you’re likely to troll and bottom fish using light or heavy tackle.

Capt. David welcomes anglers of all ages, including kids, so get ‘em offline and onto the water! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own.

You’ll be dropping lines from a 22’ Pirahna center console that can carry up to 4 passengers. It comes with all the essentials. Rods, reels, and tackle are ready for you, along with lures.

Before coming aboard, it will be necessary to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.

You can’t go wrong when you bring sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses. Drinks will be available for you. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. There will be food on full-day trips and some light snacks for you on board.

Give yourself something to look forward to and book a trip with Prime Gancho Charters!

Capt. David runs trips out of Houston aboard a 22’ Pirahna center console. These waters are known for Redfish and Sheepshead and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're trolling or bottom fishing. With extensive knowledge of the area, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
