Circle H Outfitters - Catch Share

515 Holiday Dr
Galveston TX, United States

Circle H Outfitters specializes in offshore fishing trips out of Galveston, Texas. Here, you will find the local crew, rich waters, and plenty of fish. Out there, you can go after King Mackerel, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Amberjack, Wahoo, and Sharks. It’s a year round action! Circle H Outfitters will also take you around nearshore waters in search of Speckled Seatrout, Redfish, and Black Drum.

When you come onboard, the crew will help you fish for some nice specimens of local waters. Captain Scott, the charter owner, has been in the charter business for two decades. He has run numerous fishing trips around these waters, with a lot of catch. Browse through the photos to have a look at the action.

You will be fishing from a 36’ custom built center console. She is powered by Yamaha engines, and features an ice box, life jackets, GPS, a fishfinder, a porta potty, a freshwater shower, and enough shade for anglers coming along. Onboard, you will find the fishing gear, including rods, reels, and tackle. The boat can take up to six people.

You can select from a variety of packages, depending on what you want to target and how far offshore you want to go. The fishing license is not included in the price of the trip and neither is the fuel. To give you an idea of how much the fuel may cost, have a look here:

- 20 mile trip - 100-125 gallons
- 30 mile trip - 125-150 gallons
- 50 plus miles - 180-200 gallons

The pricing can vary, but it now stands at $3.00 per gallon.

When coming onboard, you should bring snacks and drinks. Alcohol (beer and wine) is fine, but no glass is allowed onboard. You should pack sunblock though not in spray. You can also pack sunglasses, a cap, comfortable clothes and footwear, soft white soled shoes, and sea sickness medication if needed. Get ready for the action and hop onboard!

My wife and kids took me on a 12 hour fishing trip, for my birthday. We had no were to sit, two of my kids had to sit on the floor. The captain smoked when he was driving.so we could smell the smoke. One of my kids have asthma,so we had to give her a breathing treatment when we got home. We only brought in two fish,we caught a lot of red fish but could keep any.

This is terrible! So sorry! Captain Ricky has been smoke free for some time now but admitted to starting up yesterday after so sent him your review. We can’t control the fishing but we definitely can control the other stuff. Please let us make it up to you in the future!

Good afternoon Mr. Dell,
So sorry the fishing was horrible yesterday morning. First time in history for us to not catch any fish.
It was due to poor water quality and of course as you know, no live shrimp available at any of the bait camps.
It was tough for the entire fleet.

Captain Scott went above and beyond for you guys.
Instead of just fishing the jetties, he ran all over the bay, both sides of the Jetties and took you guys offshore and trolled behind shrimp boats and fished around tons of ships. That was a $1200.00 trip he gave you for the price of $650.00 all because it bothered him so much that he wasn’t able to get you guys on some fish.

Captain Scott and our deckhand Jacob both worked their behinds off for you guys and absolutely did not warrant a one star review.

Calm seas,
Shannon James-Hickman
