Texas Fishing Charters offers charter fishing trips out of Galveston Texas daily. Galveston is a great tourist destination with a vast fishery. There are many options and great fishing spots around Galveston including the Galveston Jetties. The Galveston North and South Jetty are loaded with many species to catch and some to enjoy on your dinner plate. Texas Fishing Charters offers four hour jetty trips along with statewater offshore trips. With the boat being docked in very close proximity to the Galveston Jetties, this provides our customers with maximum fishing time per trip.

When fishing the Galveston Jetties, depending on the time of year, Captain Zach Lewis will put you on Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Pompano, Jack Cravelle, Sharks and many other species. And during the Bull Red or Black Drum spawn, expect to catch and release massive trophy fish. Great for pictures but not necessarily good eating. Captain Zach will let you keep one Bull Redfish and tag it if the fish is up to 36 inches. But nothing larger due to the amount of eggs in these larger breeding fish. Conservation is his main concern, not to mention when you cook a large Bull Redfish thoroughly it tastes like an overcooked pork chop.

Texas Fishing Charters offers statewater offshore trips up to 9 nautical miles off the Texas Coast leaving out of Galveston Texas. Again depending on the time of year you can catch different species. Captain Zach is very knowledgeable in catching Kingfish, Spanish Mackeral, Cobia, Tripple Tail, Sharks, Dorado, and various species of Snapper. Spring, summer and fall are all a good time of year for Statewater Offshore trips out of Galveston as warmer / cleaner water will bring in more offshore species.

Captain Zach is a skilled captain and fisherman, fun to fish with, and great with teaching kids and adults fishing techniques and conservation. You will be aboard a very nice Sea Hunt 26’ Gamefish with twin engines and all the latest technology.

    This trip targets sharks by drifting shipwrecks targeting many different species of sharks. When the opportunity arises we will chase shrimp boats for large blacktip and spinner sharks. Capt. Zach is very skilled in shark fishing and the proper handing of sharks to safely catch and release large sharks.

I learned how to fish predominantly form form my grandfather here in Galveston Bay along with my uncle. Then continued to learn from them on Lake Livingston. I have always had a great love for fishing and the outdoors. On my father's side of the family, I am from 19 generations of commercial fisherman originating from the Isle of Vis in Croatia. My father passed when I was very young so I went into business and eventually found my way, on my own back to fishing. I have never been happier now being a charter fishing guide. I really enjoy learning more each day and teaching others techniques and spending time working with children on building their character.
