Artificial Lures

Our personal favorite technique in catching fish is with artificial lures. There is a special satisfaction of fooling fish rather than feeding them. We can guide you out of your comfort zone of fishing with natural baits by teaching you the basic knots and retrieves. If live bait is your game, we can supply your crew with live bait at market value.

Complimentary drinks on board such as iced coffee, Red Bull, Gatorade, Cerveza and water. Half days include a snack such as jerky, trail mix or fruit. Lunch provided for everyone on board for full day trips. Meals consist of gourmet sandwich or wrap, fruit and chips. Snack and lunch menu will vary week to week.

Aside from catching fish, we will also capture the memory. We include professional photos of your experience. A short series of photos are typically an action shot, the catch of the day and a group photo. All photos will be edited and formatted for print if you choose to frame them.

Half days are 4 hours and full days are 8 hours. Half day options can be scheduled for morning or afternoon. Trips start as early as 6:30am where you meet at the dock for a brief safety meeting. Trips can be extended at the Captain and your crews discretion but your time will never be cut short unless your group mutually agrees to heading in early. We provide everything for the adventure with the exception of fishing licenses and live bait.

We schedule at optimal fishing times of day. This option is only available in Baytown but will include snacks, juice, photos and a water tour of the San Jacinto Battle grounds.

"Knowledge, experience, and an all-around relaxed vibe made for a really fun outing"

We really enjoyed our trip with Prime Gancho Charters. Captain David really took great care in making sure we had a good experience. Beautiful boat. Really nice equipment/tackle, and any little niceties/and necessities you might want/need. He provided it all.

I’m a novice angler but my boyfriend is not. And somehow, we both managed to have a great experience despite the difference in skill levels. We both caught some beauties.

David was extremely helpful in showing me how to cast and giving me helpful hints. I really appreciated it as I was nervous about that.

The highlight of the trip? My boyfriend caught a huge jack. And what a thrill that was. Capt David even captured some great action shots for us with his camera. Knowledge, experience, and an all-around relaxed vibe made for a really fun outing. My first but not my last. We will definitely come back for another trip. If you’re new to the sport like me or a well seasoned fisherman, you can’t go wrong here. I can’t recommend Prime Gancho enough.
