I see they took down my truthful post, & this trip was so terrible I have to put out again to warn the people. If you want to catch fish, do not use these clowns. They make you feel like everyone is catching non stop & that was a joke and a scam. They couldn't care less about the "elbow... More

I went out on the New Buccaneer for a 12 hour deep sea fishing excursion on Friday 4/7/17. Had a blast. Being a female on my own, I'll say I felt right at home. We caught our limit..Whoo Hoo!

Called only several days prior to my trip to Galveston and was able to get on a 12-hour trip. Whoever I spoke with was great. They asked about my experience level and if I had ever been 40-50 miles off-shore before. When I said "no" they gave good advice about seasickness preventatives ("Follow the directions and take some before you... More

I did the four hour bay and jetty trip, and no one caught anything. There were small white trout trying to bite but not on heavy boat rods. This was the worst party boat trip I have been on in quite some time. The young "captain" didn't seem to know what he was doing. We needed to have been closer... More

My husband and I decided to give this a try and absolutely loved it! The guys on the boat were great! They were right there if you needed anything! We both caught a red along with several other types of fish on our 4 hr trip. There were guys at the dock area that would clean your fish for a... More

Ok, so I have to admit this was my first time fishing. This guided fishing tour is GREAT for beginners. They are hands on, helpful professionals. Make sure to arrive by 7:45am. . .the boat pulls out at 8am. I planned this trip for a group of seniors 50 and older, much of the group had been fishing before. I... More

Anybody who has ever done any guided fishing trips knows it can be very expensive. These party boats are the way to go. $75 for 12 hours of deep sea fishing is great. It's sometimes crowded and you don't fish for as long as a charter boat, but you're spending a fraction of the money. I've been fishing with them... More

Went on the 8 hour fish trip this Sunday. Part of the trip was a waste of time. First they took us to a spot where only Red Snappers were caught. I was so happy catching these beautiful fish only to be informed that by Federal Law I could not keep them and had to throw them back to sea.... More

We enjoyed ourselves so much. The Deck Hands are the nicest young men and we had decent fishermen down to Grandma in out group and there was something for everyone. Grandma went as a "rider" for $10!!! She totally enjoyed the ride out and back from the Bay and sat in the Galley in AC while we fished. WE DID... More

We did the 12-hour deep sea trip, which was touch and go at first. There were concerns, according to the desk manager, about high swells (6-feet +) because of an overnight storm. But as luck would have it, we were able to do the trip. Heading out was a bit rough. Very choppy, and the captain had to slow down... More
