The Black Drum run is very strong in Spring but those big brutes hang around all year.

Black Drum aka Pogonias cromi

You have come to the right place if you’re looking for a fishing experience of a lifetime. Let Galveston fishing  guide Capt Craig Lambert take you there.  No matter if you’re a seasoned angler or a first timer, you will be blown away by the angling opportunities that the Galveston Bay complex has to offer. Galveston Bay is approximately 600 square miles of fishing habitat that was carved out 5000 years ago by the San Jacinto and Trinity Rivers. These precious waters are the life force of our bay system and create our exceptional fishery.  What makes fishing Galveston so special is the diversity of species that can be caught in a day.  Redfish and Specks are our main target but Black Drum, Flounder, Jack Crevalle and Sharks can be caught at any time.  That is what is so special about saltwater fishing in Galveston Bay is that you never know what you may catch from cast to cast. ​ Capt. Craig Lambert has been a full-time Galveston fishing charter service for 7 years so he knows where the spots are.  Jump aboard and let's get after it!

What clients say about Capt Craig:

Jacob R. - Houston, TX

"  ...Thank you so much for the great time.  My kids can't stop talking about how much fun they had and want to know when they can go again. ...​"

Boyd Y. - Friendswood, TX

" I have my own boat but staying on fish is tough unless you are out there all the time.  I go with Capt Craig every few months and he shows me the patterns so I can catch a few on my own. What a great teaching guide he is.  I have become a much better fishermen because of his guidance and his professionalism."

Greg S. - League City, TX

" In  my opinion Capt Lambert is one of the best teaching guides on Galveston Bay. Since my first trip with him in 2013 when I hardly knew how to cast to now where my abilities are getting better on every trip. ..."

Brett R. - Houston, TX

"...When my son and I go fishing with Captain Craig, the experience is so much more 
than I could ever hope for.  From the very first step onto his boat to the last step 
off, he treats us like we are the most important group he has ever had.   Many 
captains say they are “family friendly,” but Captain Craig proves it on every trip.   
When fishing, I expect that I will be spending all my time taking care of my young 
son’s needs.  However, when we fish with Captain Craig, he goes out of his way to 
make my son feel confident and excited to fish.  Captain Craig focuses his time 
and energy on my son and insists that I have a good time fishing as well.  Captain 
Craig makes sure that everyone’s needs are met.  
 On Captain Craig’s boat, I have learned more about fishing as well as new 
techniques.  He is experienced in finding the fish and knowing how to turn a 
“fishing trip” into “A FISHING TRIP!”...  "

Wayne S.- Houston TX

Capt Craig was great!  He spent a lot of time with our girls (age 7 and 9) and was very patient.  He essentially replaced my role as a parent and attended to the kids and I was able to fish as if they weren't there.  He was also able to help us adults as we weren't familiar with the technique.  I had hesitations on hiring a guide with my girls as I thought it might be frustrating day for me, but he made it all worth while.  It definitely helps that we had a great bite.  I would definitely hire him again.

Gary L. - Dallas TX

Every year myself and a few buddies come down  from Dallas to fish with Capt Craig. He is very professional and knows how to catch fish. We have been with a few others and nobody is as friendly, knowledgeable and just a downright good guide. We always catch fish and that is why we always come back. 

Flounder aka Paralichthys albiguttata

Excellent Trout fishing occurs all year long. But the best months are typically February March and December.

Flounder season runs from Early November to mid December and it is by far my favorite time of year for fishing. Catching 40 to 60 a day is the norm.

Our redfish are plentiful, strong and an absolute blast to catch. The very best months for these awesome gamefish are August and September when they can be found roaming shallow flats.

Speckled Trout aka Cynoscion nebulosus

Redfish aka Sciaenops ocellatus ​
