Last minute choice to try our luck at fishing the bay. Out of the 5 of us my 5 year old grandson caught a fish. That along made the trip worth it. Thanks Danny B's.

We have been fishing at SPI for years and have used the Danny B over 12 times; however, this time there was a new crew on board which made all the difference & not in a good way! #1: Boat Size: It is not a huge boat which means if there are 20 bodies on board, it is a bit... More

I have been fishing with Danny B for three years now. We have tried all the other bay boats and we think they have the most to offer. The captains are very good at finding the fish and usually otfish the others. The boat is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. First mate Mathew is very knowledgeable and takes time with...

Fishing in Padre is very seasonal with regards to the bay, wind and weather. Nobody really caught many fish and my oldest only caught one. I paid $20 to bait my youngest sons hook with tiny frozen dead bait shrimp. Meanwhile the deckhand Matthew smoked cigarettes and surfed FB instead of helping catch fish. If you are thirsty bring your... More

We have had lots of fishing trips on the Danny B. Absolutely love the entertaining crew and the knowledge they have for area fishing. We have never been disappointed. We would recommend to anyone who has time and wants to go fishing while on South Padre Island.

We went on a early morning 4 hour trip. It was $25 each and they provided the fishing gear and bait. Deck hands were very nice and helpful. Enjoyed the boat ride and the fishing experience.

This was a fantastic fishing experience! I think everyone on board caught fish! We went home with sheepshead fish at the max allowed! All 3 of us caught fish! Captain Darryl Stiers was really great with the kids, and there were about 9 kids on the boat. We had some of our fish cooked up at a local restaurant and... More

I have had many great trips with Danny B. but our trip with 12 friends last week was grossly overbooked. There were over 40 fisherpeople on board and due to lack of space, I never picked up a rod all afternoon. Anyone who did catch a fish had to untangle from up to 4 other lines. There were very few...

The weather did not permit us to go deep sea fishing but we stayed in the bay and had a wonderful experience. The staff were incredibly accommodating in some cold November Weather. You can't beat their prices! We did catch some small whitings which we kept and many catfish which we released. The prices don't go up in season. It's... More
