Texas Premier Guide Services

Come with Texas Premier Guide Services and have a blast in the flats. A network of local and experienced guides is ready to give you a hand with gigging Flounder or going after Redfish or Spotted Seatrout. The equipment provided is top-of-the-line and custom-made, to ensure that you have an edge over the other anglers. The bays, shallows, and flats of the area are stocked with hidden treasures - bountiful fish, which the guides will lead you to.

Captain Travis Henderson knows the area very well and will show you the hottest fishing spots in the area. The beautiful Texan bay system surrounding Freeport is ripe with fish just waiting to be caught. Twenty years of experience really come to show on this trip and the guides are eager to pass their knowledge on to the customers. Light tackle is no problem for the elite guides and they’ll also be happy to help you with drift fishing. Fish cleaning and filleting is also included in the trip price.

The vessel provided is perfectly suitable for the area, a 23’ Shoalwater bay boat. It comes fully equipped with a custom lighting system, specifically tailored for night-time flounder gigging. Up to 4 anglers are able to fish from it (depending on the trip). A powerful 250 HP Suzuki engine is there to make sure you get where the fishing is hot.

Texas Premier Guide Services welcomes children of all ages on board and will be happy to get some little anglers hooked on bay fishing. Live bait is available, at an additional cost. The guide service provides the necessary equipment for fishing and gigging but advises customers to bring their own clothing for wading.
