Ready for your next big fishing adventure in the Gulf of Mexico? Salty Rods Charters is the charter for you! This family owned business focuses on faith, family, and friends. With them, not only will you catch fish, you will make memories that last a lifetime!

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 26’ Century boat that accommodates up to 6 guests, including kids of all ages. There’s safety and navigational equipment on the boat at all times, and she also features a live bait tank. On some trips, you’ll be joined by the first mate as well, and he’ll make sure that your rod is always ready for a new fish to hook.

From the Galveston ship channel, the bay, and jetties, to the close offshore rigs, the Salty Rods crew offers multiple different trips just to suit you. Depending on the season and trip, you’ll often target Redfish, Trout, Shark, Stingray, King Mackerel, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, and more.

You’ll be provided with top of the line fishing gear and fresh bait (frozen or live depending on the trip). Prices include fuel, bait, tackle, and fish cleaning. Just keep in mind your captain and deckhand do work for tips. Bring your coolers (alcohol allowed, no glass), your snacks (no bananas, google it) and you’ll be all set.

Whenever you feel like spending an exciting day in Galveston, just give Salty Rods Charters a call!
