Captain Scott Maxwell

2808 Lake Point Drive
Texas City TX, United States

If you’re looking for a first-class inshore fishing experience, look no further than Captain Scott Maxwell. He’s been fishing these waters for more than two decades now. Whether you’re a first-time angler or an old hand at the hobby, you’re more than welcome aboard.

His boat is a 25’ Dargel center console that runs on a single 300 HP Yamaha outboard. This vessel has plenty of room for up to 4 anglers to fish from, making it perfect for bringing some friends along for the ride. It’s got all the necessary safety gear and navigation electronics to ensure a safe and productive day on the water.

Galveston is home to some of the best inshore fishing around and Capt. Scott will show you his favorite locations. Light tackle fishing is the name of the game here, and he’ll guide you through the motions if you need any help. Some of the species you’re most likely to find here include Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout.

All the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip. Not only that but Capt. Scott will have the catch cleaned and filleted for your convenience after the trip. Come on down and see for yourself just how fun fishing in this part of Texas can be!
