Gulf Tex Fishing Co.

As a 3rd generation Captain, I have plenty of experience in Galveston waters and pride myself with being able to put any type of customer on fish, no matter the conditions.
I will accommodate children or any disabled person to the best of my ability.  I am a father myself and I am great at teaching children.
Most half day trips will run 4 to 5 hours of fishing time. Full days will run from 6 to 8 hours from dock to dock.
I will filet your catch and provide bags for you to take your catch with you. You will need to bring a cooler if you plan on keeping your fish.
Please remember your fishing license. You can purchase them online thru Texas Parks and Wildlife or at Walmart and Academy. There are one day licenses available as well.
Alcohol is allowed, just no glass containers.
Let’s go fishing!
