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!

I can say captain Shane did what he could to get us some fish. However shark fishing was not what we wanted at all, Circle H outfiters did not delivered at all the main reason i booked with them it was because of the boat they advertise there were my wife and my daughter which the as women have needs and circle H outfiters advertise a toilet in the boat and the boat was not equipped with a tiolet. And on top of that all the hidden costs they don’t tell you about intill you have booked your trip,  over all it was a not very pleasant experience with circle H outfiters.  Don’t misunderstand Captain Shane did what he thought was appropriate for the trip. 
But circle H outfiters a big disappointment for me.

Good afternoon Mr. Barrios,
Thank you so much for the review and we are so sorry for the bathroom situation. We have multiple boats and it was my main focus to find the right captain for you to put you on variety of fish as we had discussed and I honestly didn’t even think of a restroom. Please send my opolgies to your wife and daughter.

Some people in the past have been surprised by the fuel cost so I gave you an inclusive price up front to make it simpler.

Thank you again for fishing with us and we hope to have you and your beautiful family back soon!

Kindest regards,
Shannon Hickman
