Captain Jimmy will be your guide as you venture out on your fishing journey. Captain Jimmy is a U.S.C.G. licensed Captain who has been fishing the waters of Galveston Bay for over 20 years and has guided and competed in various tournaments all over the Galveston Bay Complex for over 5 years. He takes pride in putting his customers in the best spots for catching fish, while also having a great and memorable experience on the water! With Captain Jimmy leading the way, you can expect to cruise around looking for fish in the Galveston Bay, Trinity Bay, and East Bay for your Bay trips. On his nearshore trips you will be fishing the shores of Galveston, Goat Island, Freeport, Texas City, and many other locations that are a short drive away from Houston. 

Your fishing charter adventure with Captain Jimmy begins when you enter his 23-foot Haynie center console that is powered by a 250 HP Honda engine. It has a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots and is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a fish finder, and a VHF radio. She has all the proper safety equipment on board and has an anchoring motor. You can expect a cooler on deck to keep your drinks and snacks fresh. This fine vessel can carry up to four guests at a time.

The trip of your choosing will include rods, reels, and tackle. At the end of your successful trip, all of your catches will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home and eat for dinner. You will need to have your own Texas Saltwater Stamp Fishing License as it is not included in the trip price.

We offer 2 six-hour packages for you to choose from. You may go on a Bay fishing trip where we will be targeting Speckled Trout and Redfish, using artificial lures or live bait. You may also select our nearshore trip that will have you fishing the jetties for Redfish, trophy Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Among the variety of fishing techniques, used by the crew, you will get a chance to go for light tackle, bottom, and drift fishing.
