Captain Dean showed our group an unbelievable time with nonstop action! We met Captain Dean at Thompson Fishing Camp in Baytown, TX (Capt. Dean does trips all around Galveston Bay and is happy to meet wherever best given the conditions). He was early and was waiting for us. After I purchased some live bait, we headed out. It was 40 degrees and raining, but none of us seemed to care. After a quick 10-15 min. run, we hit our first spot. Captain Dean positioned the boat for our drift over some shell bottom oyster flats. The bite was ferocious from the first drift on and didn't stop until we had to leave! We must've caught over 20 speckled trout, mostly in the 12-18" range, but a few that were well beyond 20 inches! Towards the back end of our last drift, something nearly ripped my rod out of my hand- after a long battle (which was an absolute blast on light tackle!), we brought to hand a massive 33" redfish! She was a tank too- awesome to see such a healthy fish swim away freely. While we should've stayed at our hot spot, we had to get going. The rain had subsided and on the way in, Capt. Dean noticed birds working the surface in a dense ball of activity. We couldn't resist, gave the area a drift, and caught a flounder on our first cast to complete the Texas Slam! Captain Dean knows his bay and its fish. He's also a fantastic personality to spend a day with- full of jokes that'll make you set the rod down laughing (by the way- he fishes Waterloo rods which are super light, strong, and smooth to cast, retrieve, and fight fish on). Book a trip with Capt. Dean, truly one of our #DamnGoodGuides. -Reviewed by Jonathan Newar, the founder of Captain Experiences.
