McAninch Outdoors

It’s time to book an adventure with McAninch Outdoors today. Captain Garry McAninch Jr can’t wait to welcome you on board and show you the ropes. Fishing in Galveston has to be experienced — book a trip today and come and see why.

Step on board his Vari-Side 23’ Gulf Coast boat with 3 of your fishing friends. This boat has a V-hull front design, allowing for a great ride across the bay even in windy conditions. It also has a tunnel hull rear, which gets you into the shallows, where the fish like to hang out, with ease.
This vessel boasts a 225 HP Yamaha engine that will get you to the fishing grounds in no time. Coupled with fishfinder and the captain’s extensive knowledge of the area, and you’ll have an action-packed day.

The fish you’ll be targeting are Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Whether this is your first fish or your hundredth, there is a fish out there with your name on it. Capt. Garry is used to teaching kids and loves to see their smiling faces when they hook their first fish. The minimum age for children is 5 and you will need to bring life vests.

On this trip, you’ll be using top quality McCain Hi-Performance spinning rods and Penn reels. All the tackle you need will also be provided, and you are welcome to purchase live bait (this is normally $25 per person).

You are welcome to bring along food and drink on this trip. This can go into the captain’s cooler on board. You must purchase a fishing license before the trip.

Book now for the trip you both need and want! You’ll love fishing with McAninch Outdoors and are sure to come back time and time again.

I grew up deer hunting and Bass fishing with my family. In school, I began saltwater fishing with friends and it became an addiction. I've been fishing Galveston Bay for the past 20 years now. Before becoming a captain and starting this guide service, my wife and I fished many saltwater tournaments together. I'm doing what I love every day now.
