Keep’n It Reel Fishing Charter

Keep’n It Reel Fishing Charter offers a variety of fishing adventures out of Galveston, TX. Join Captain William, who’s been fishing these waters for as long as he can remember. He fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a captain and loves sharing his knowledge with other people. Let him introduce you to the world of fishing if you haven’t got the chance so far, and catch your first fish here!

You’ll be fishing on a 23’ Sea Hunt that accommodates up to 6 guests. The boat is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and reaches the maximum speed of 34 knots. You’ll reach your spot fast and save more time to catch fish. The boat features modern navigational electronics, safety fear, a live bait tank, and a cooler for your catch.

Your fishing spots depend on what you want to catch, so it can be anything from inshore waters to jetties. Go after Flounder, Pompano, Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, Mackerel, Shark, and many more. All trips are private, so you’ll always have the whole boat to yourself, even if there’s fewer than 6 people in your group.

Capt. William will cover your rods, reels, lures, and live bait. Since you get to keep the catch, he’ll also clean it for you after the trip, so you can enjoy the freshest fish fillets later in the day. Just pack some food and drinks and don’t forget to get your fishing license.

Keep’n It Reel Fishing Charter has a goal to provide their guests with a fishing trip of a lifetime! So, when are you coming?
