Tips for Your Galveston Bay Fishing Trip

           Capt. Billy strives to make every anglers trip a "trip of a lifetime" on the water for the anglers. To make this happen, there are a few things the angler can do ahead of time to make the trip more successful. First, be prepared, clothing wise, for the weather. Look at the weather before the trip and plan for the day. During summer months, bring plenty of fluids to drink and stay hydrated. It's important to be on time the day of the trip. For most of the year, there is a great bite at daylight and being on time helps the capt. be on the fish when they are biting best. Every angler should have a fun day on the water and leave the day with knowledge of fishing, so be open to the captains suggestions and his knowledge of the bay. If there are any needs or request from any angler, let the captain know ahead of time so he can prepare for the trip any way possible. Capt. Billy looks forward to hearing from you getting on water to catch fish and having a great day. Remember to always be safe and courteous on the water.
