Galveston Fishing Charter Co. #2

Galveston Fishing Charter Company welcomes you aboard for a day of fun fishing, exploring the local shallows or heading offshore in search of the fiercest predators to stalk the seas. With one of the largest fleets and best reputations in town, these guys have the skills, the experience, and the customer focus needed to make sure you get the most out of your trip.

In order to enjoy great fishing both inshore and offshore, you will need an adaptable vessel which can cruise at speed to get you to the best spots. That’s exactly what you will get with this 33’ Polar center console. Built in 2005, the vessel is powered by twin Yamaha engines and cruises at a steady 30 knots, more than fast enough to get you offshore without wasting precious fishing time.

The boat is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to sound out the seas and lock onto the captain’s top fishing spots. Once you are in place, you will be given quality tackle to match your target species, with a choice of live bait fresh from the tank or lures realistic enough to fool even the cleverest of fish.

On half day trips, you will be fishing the local jetties and shallow bays, targeting Redfish, Flounder, Trout, and a host of other inshore favorites. On full days, you can also stay in the shallows, pulling in enough fish to fill the freezer for a month, and having a great time doing so.

If you fancy something a bit different, head offshore to fish for King Mackerel, Red Snapper, Tarpon, Cobia, and more. You can even spend the day locked in battle with the huge Sharks which inhabit the area. Mako, Hammerhead, Bull, and Tiger Sharks patrol these waters and are some of the best-fighting fish around.

Whatever you do, you can trust that you are fishing with the best. Galveston Fishing Charter Company is an established, licensed fleet with all the necessary training and equipment to ensure to have a safe and productive day on the water
