Bay Fishing

Sustainable practices

We encourage catch and release to preserve the sport of fishing for future generations.

Captain Evy welcomes you aboard the Bay King. Regarded as one of the best fishermen on the Texas coast, Evy is among the most entertaining guys you’ll ever meet. If you don’t have a great time on your trip, Evy takes it personally! Ask any of his many followers. He and his crew love to fish and more importantly, they love to see you catch fish!

Photo perfect

Enjoy the trip and the fish

You’ll catch more than fish. With beautiful views of the Laguna Madre, you can catch beautiful photos at one of the best inland bay fishing areas in Texas.

We have a great variety of catches that include everything from whiting to tarpon, ling and shark. Typical catches include whiting, trout, red fish, black drum, and sheepshead.

Captain Bobby Dunkin

Our captain and crew

Master Captain Bobby Dunkin and his co-captains are highly regarded fishing professionals with over 50 years of combined experience. You’ll find all our Captains and their crew friendly and efficient. We fish year-round as different species migrate through.

Sustainable fishing practices

We practice catch and release conservation!

Help us make fishing a durable recreation. We support sustainable fishing practices so that you, and generations to follow, may enjoy the opportunity to fish by catching only what we need and releasing what we don’t.

All billfish and other gamefish (tarpon, mako, etc) will be freed as soon as possible. All non-edible fish (jack crevalle, bonita, etc) will be released at boatside unless used for bait.

Fishing responsibly

Any and all fish that the catching fisherman does not intend to clean and eat will also be released before gaffing or landing. At this time, we allow the gaffing and landing of some shark species, but encourage fishermen to release these fish as well after enjoying the sport of playing them.

We are not in the business of killing fish. Our purpose is to provide you with the opportunity to experience the thrill of fishing and savor the taste of fresh-caught fish while preserving the species for future generations.
