Get Hooked Charters Galveston – 25'

If you’re looking to get hooked up with some incredible angling opportunities in Galveston, then Get Hooked Charters Galveston has got you covered! With a fleet of 5 vessels, a team of passionate and experienced captains, and inshore, offshore, and nearshore waters to explore, you’ll be in for the adventure of a lifetime.

Get Hooked Charters Galveston has been in business since 2007, when Captain Mike Short decided to turn his love for angling into a charter company. He couldn’t wait to start sharing his love for the sport with his guests!

With 5 vessels to run, Capt. Mike isn’t the only captain Get Hooked Charters Galveston has. He works alongside 6 other passionate and experienced captains to run a huge host of inshore, nearshore, and offshore trips. No matter where you choose to fish, and which captain you fish with, you’ll receive plenty of support and local tips, tricks, and know-how.

If you choose to fish from your captain’s 25’ Grady White center console, you’ll have a wealth of fishing options to choose from. You can opt to explore the inshore jetties and channel for that Texan trio, Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder, or head slightly further out to battle huge Shark species.

Fully developed your sea legs and ready to really go the distance? Head up to 60 miles offshore for a deep sea adventure! Here, you’ll come across Mahi Mahi, huge Red Snapper, Cobia, and Amberjack.

Your captain’s vessel is decked out with top-quality safety and navigational gear, and can accommodate up to 6 guests. She’s the perfect choice for a family trip, or battling it out with your best angling buddies! Children are more than welcome to join in on the fun, but must be age 8 or above to journey offshore.

Your trip includes top-quality fishing gear, such as rods, reels, tackle, and bait to attract your target catch. All you need to bring along are snacks, drinks, a valid fishing license, and a sense of adventure. Get Hooked Charters Galveston will provide the rest!
