Humans and aquatic creatures rarely occupy the same space, mostly due to differences in breathing mechanisms and over what really happened at that Mesozoic family party. Venture out onto open waters to see how the other half of the animal kingdom lives with today's Groupon: for $300, you get eight hours of fishing with a licensed captain through Bay Adventures Sportfishing (a $450 value). You and up to two mates can savor a full day of yarn-spinning, exaggerated measuring, existential contemplations, Herman Melville book circles, and mariner-speak. And fishing.
Bay Adventures Sportfishing's tour of Galveston Bay Complex is designed for the diligent reeler eager to pull in a heap of fish. The scenic eight-hour vacation among the bay's fishy hotspots will expose you to a variety of early-to-bed, early-to-rise breeds as well as more crepuscular water dwellers. If you don't own your own gear, Bay Adventures will provide you with rods, reels, and artificial lures to help you break the ice with the fishies.
Captain Steve Auld and his fellow fishing captains are all licensed by the USCG and Texas Parks and Wildlife. Their numerous awards and accomplishments ensure that you'll get the precise fishing advice and helpful tips you need to become a more formidable caster.

Appearances on ESPN’s Redfish Cup and the Gulf Coast Troutmaster circuit are only a sample of the multifarious accolades that dot Captain Steve Auld’s resumé. A paramedic, licensed US Coast Guard captain, and professional angler, Steve is also the owner of Bay Adventures Sportfishing, where he leads as many as 200 fishing trips per year. Armed with included gear, fishing groups set out on Galveston Bay’s salty waters in search of catches such as speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. Groups are also privy to Steve’s special instruction and secrets garnered from years of professional experience, ensuring they don’t make newbie mistakes such as getting too attached to a fish and eloping with it. In addition to his Galveston Bay jaunts, Steve also leads specialty trips such as flounder gigging and guided duck and dove hunts in Mexico.
