Galveston Fishing Charter Co. #2

715 N Holiday Dr
Galveston TX, United States

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 25’ Polar center console. Built in 2008, the vessel is powered by twin 300HP Evinrude E-TECs 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

Had a great time. Capt. Zach was great. Weather wasn’t too cooperative, but can’t control that. Will definitely plan another trip and would recommend to others that are looking for a good guide.

We essentially had a privet trip since it was only the four of us, the captain and his deck hand which was nice. The wind was high so we ended up fishing near shore…. places we could have fished for free. They also seemed to not be equipped for this kind of fishing. The hooks where to small and the shrimp (I would have used squid)  kept getting pulled out without catching the fish, to make matters worse there wasn’t enough weights on the lines to keep them on the bottom when more was requested the deck hand informed us it was operator error….. overall it was a pleasant day but the day before when fishing in the ocean with just one person caught more fish…. today we caught 6 eatable fish in the 4 hours with a professional guide. If it had been my company or boat I would have offered to stop half way though and charged half price.
