Just FYI, unless it's an odd time of day during the week, you probably won't find any availability that soon.

Always worth calling. They may be booked but you never know when they will have someone cancel or reschedule a trip. It happens.

Here's another to try...

Alan knows his stuff for sure. From ducks, to fish, to gators. He's the son of a coworker and gets on some serious fish. Not unusual to have 50+ reds or trout (released of course) in a morning and back by 1.

Seems like these questions get asked a lot, wonder if we should have a thread like the dog tracker list that shows TBH approved fishing guides by area.

I'll add some more names to the list here in case someone finds this in the future using the search button.

Nathan Gray
Joey Ybarra
Dana Bailey
Jim West - lures only
Brad Panek
Jake Rangnow

All of the above a good and all are Galveston. Jim is on the Bolivar side though and will want you to come over there to launch.

Add that the fact he agreed to meet us half way to tomball with shrimp when they still had the seafood business and I think he's a stand up guy.

I would fish with him again and recommend him to anyone who doesn't want to soak shrimp on the jetty like most every other "guide" down there

I know it’s late, but like someone mentioned it may be a good idea to add reputable guides.

WOW!!!! Most every other guide down here soaks shrimp at the jetties WOW . There are a lot of artificial only guides here. I say do your home work get about 5 or 6 names , call them and tell them what your expectations , are most guides are more than happy to steer you in the right direction if they are booked or do not fish they way you would like to fish.

Another vote for Hillman.... dude is an absolute blast to fish with, believe I was laughing more than fishing. That boy is comical, definitely not the guy to go with though if you get bent easy.

I don’t want to talk him up too much, but if you want to fish with someone funny, fish with Coy Witherspoon.
He was born and raised in Anahuac, TX, and has fished galveston, trinity, and east bay for over 40 years. I would put him up against any guide for that area.

Got several friends who are guides in Galveston, but I would never ask them to fish with you
