WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY:

I have been fishing with Capt. Lg Boyd for the last 10 years. The knowledge that he shares on every trip whether we are in the bay or chasing tarpon in the gulf is priceless. I would recommend him for anybody that wants to have fun or wants to learn more and step up their fishing game.
Dean Hazley
Captain LG Boyd has amazing customer service. In all of the videos that we recorded, you can hear him encouraging the kids to real in the shark. He truly cares about the entire fishing experience with all his clients. I highly recommend him with kids and adults!
Felicia Sheedy
I’ve been on two trips with Captain LG with my 11 year old and we have a blast every time. Captain LG knows Galveston like the back of his hand and will put you on the fish. He is great with kids and is a true conservationist at heart. Our family will keep coming back as long as we can.
