Start your Texas inshore adventure with Bay Finatic. Captain Joe Guerra runs trips from Matagorda but you can also start from Galveston. He’s been fishing the area for over 20 years and he’s on the water year round.

Capt. Joe welcomes you aboard his 23’ Shoalwater Cat boat. Powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, she can reach a good speed and get you to any fishing spot in no time. The boat accommodates up to 4 guests, although you can also book a special full day trip during weekends, that’s suited for only 2 guests.

Your main targets will be the Big Three – Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder. But the fun doesn’t end there. In these waters, you can also find Black Drum and Sheepshead, depending on the season and fishing grounds you visit. Capt. Joe mainly uses drift fishing, structure and reef fishing techniques with popping CorkSor. If you want to enjoy your catch to the fullest and take some fresh fillets with you, the captain will clean it for you after the trip.

Your rods, reels and fishing tackle are fully covered by the captain. Live bait is extra charged if you want to use it. But, using the live bait is the best way to catch fish and highly recommended! Since you’ll stay out of choppy waters, this trip is great even for kids or guests that aren’t used to boats. You’re required to purchase a fishing license in Texas, so make sure to do it before the trip.

With a variety of fishing trips with Bay Finatic, you’ll easily find the one that’s perfect for you. Take a look and then just choose a date.

I have fished my whole life and I love teaching people how to fish. Watching someone catch a fish for the first time and seeing them light up, gives me great pleasure knowing I helped them archive a goal they had. I like to fish with live bait and popping corks. This is the best way to catch different species of fish. Then once we catch a few we can switch to lures.
