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 from 100 to 125 gallons
- 30-mile trip from 125 to 150 gallons
- 50 plus miles from 180 to 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!
