Get Fishy Charters

Get Fishy Charters is a family-owned business that started in 2015, specializing in family and private trips. Having fished the shores of Galveston his entire life, Captain Cole Griffith prides himself on being able to “put customers in the right place, at the right time.”

He guides his trips out of a 32’ Wellcraft center console, powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha engines. The boat has all the bells and whistles, including a GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, safety gear, and a private head. It can fit up to 6 guests and has enough room to allow each person to fish at the same time.

Capt. Cole provides the tackle and gear, including Shimano and Penn rods and reels, and live bait. There will also be a first mate aboard to assist you with anything you need and to make sure you’re having the best possible experience. In addition, the crew will clean and fillet your catch for you after the trip.

Get Fishy Charters mostly focuses their trips around inshore and nearshore locations, including the local jetty. Here you will come across some fun species, such as Sheepshead, Black Drum, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, and even Blacktip and Bonnethead Sharks! Capt. Cole will also take you up to 10 miles offshore where you will start to encounter a wider range of species, such as Mahi Mahi and Kingfish.

Experience an adventure of a lifetime and choose the Get Fishy crew for your next fishing trip. All that’s left is for you to get a fishing license prior to your trip and make sure to bring a cooler for snacks and drinks. You can either get a fishing license online or head over to the local Walmart. The rest is taken care of so you can sit back and focus on fishing!
