Capt. Brando’s Saltwater Fishing runs charters out of Galveston, TX, working hard to make sure your time is worth every dollar spent. Your captain, Brandon Kilgore, has been fishing these waters his whole life. He’s an expert in nearshore and inshore fishing and specializes in a range of techniques, including trolling, jigging, drifting, and bottom fishing.

You’ll head out from Offatts Bayou into the West Bay, and further into the Gulf to target a variety of different species. Capt. Brandon will put you on Red Snapper, Kingfish, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and many more as you put your skill and focus to the test. He also offers special Tarpon trips, for those looking to challenge the tough-fighting Silver King.

Capt. Brandon can also accommodate single-person trips for beginners wanting to improve their angling skills. These trips will provide more focus and attention to the customer while introducing them to the basics. Single trips are also great for experienced anglers that want to get out on the water alone and relax while paying a cheaper price than your typical 6-hour trip.

Your boat for the day is a 25’ Parker center console, equipped with a GPS, fishfinder, wireless trolling motor, and safety gear. She accommodates up to 4 people comfortably, making her perfect for family trips. Children ages 4 and up are more than welcome to join the fun and the captain has kids’ vests for them.

You’ll use a variety of top-quality rods and reels, as well as high-performance lures. Live bait is available for an extra charge of 25$ per passenger. Please note, you’ll have to purchase a Texas State Fishing License prior to the trip which usually ranges between $40 and $68, depending on whether you’re a Texas resident or not.

Capt. Brando’s Saltwater Fishing will make sure your day is productive and one to remember. Pack a cooler with snacks and drinks, bring a pair of sunglasses, sunscreen, and comfortable clothing and get ready for an unforgettable adventure!
