 I am looking forward to a great and prosperous year in 2024. I want to thank all my customers that have fished with me over the past year, all my great sponsors and all the fishing guides that I network with. Working together with real professionals are a huge benefit for us and it makes our job easier. . I also want to let you know that I am in the process of launching my Youtube channel. I will have some very informational videos on it about fishing, boating and many other things that have to do with my charter business. I will put a link on here once it is launched.

Spring is here and we get real busy this time of the year with people that are visiting Galveston and especially families on spring break. The fish have been cooperating and we have had some productive outings lately. We are catching some nice trout, red fish, a few drum and sheepshead on most outings. We are fishing in the lower part of the Galveston bay system right now, mostly anchoring over shell or near structure and also doing some drift fishing. The bite for me has been best on the incoming tide. I am using live shrimp under a cork and keying on the bait and tide movement. As long as the weather is good, the fishing has been good. Give us a call and bring the family and kids out to have a great time fishing with me or my brother. Hope to hear from you soon. Until next time, see you on the water. "Thanks, Capt. Alan"

"Last Fall I took a fishing trip with Captain Alan and two of my good friends. We are avid fishermen and love to fish most chances we get. Captain Alan was so great out on the water and brought us right into the action. First cast lead to the first fish of the day. We did not stop there, as we slowly started filling up the cooler with some good sized keeper speckled trout. My friends and I all hooked in to some slot red fish as well. At the end of the day we had our limit of specks (30) and 3 red fish. Whether you have never fished in your life or if you fish often, I would definitely recommend taking an exciting trip with Captain Alan. Thank you so much Captain Alan, l will be back very soon."

"We had a great trip with Capt. Steven. Despite having higher than desired winds, we all still managed to catch plenty of quality fish. Capt. Steven was extremely professional, provided great customer service and he was very persistent in making sure that my party caught fish and most importantly that we all had fun. I feel very confident in recommending his service to anyone that is looking for fishing guide for Galveston. It is a top-notch service, they have a very roomy boat & use quality fishing equipment. My fishing trip was an all around great experience and I look forward to my next trip. I will definitely recommend Steven to all my friends and family. I know he will treat them right."

"I have booked an outing with Capt. Alan and Steven 6 times over the past 2 years. Both of them have been so professional and courteous on all the trips. They have really spoiled me, my kids & my clients. Even on the 2 days that the wind was blowing, we still ended up with a nice box of fish. We caught 30-50 fish on 5 of the 6 trips. They really run a professional fishing service and they have always made me feel comfortable. I booked them because of their great reviews on the Internet and I'm so glad I did. These guys will get all my business in the future. Thanks again Capt. Alan and Capt. Steven for treating me to some great fishing over the past couple of years. See you real soon."
