If you’re looking for a great, fun-filled day of fishing the waters of Galveston, you’ve found the right charter! Frisky Reds and its Captain Brandon McAfee provide some of the most exciting fishing experiences in Galveston, Texas. Join them on nearshore and offshore trips and explore the beautiful reefs and wrecks of Galveston waters.

The state-of-the-art vessel that you’ll be using is a 38’ Rampage offshore sport fishing boat. It can carry up to 6 guests and is powered by a powerful twin 510 HP Caterpillar C9 engine. Apart from modern navigation, fish finding, and communication systems, the boat is equipped with outriggers and a livewell. Its kitchen, toilet, shower, bed, and air conditioning guarantee you maximum comfort. You will also have a refrigerator and an ice-box at your disposal. A first mate will be on board, as well, to give you any help you need.

You’ll have the chance to bottom fish, deep sea fish, troll, jig, and drift fish. Some of the species you’ll encounter include Spadefish, Black Drum, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Blacktip Shark. Have a nice family outing by bringing your kids with you. When you return home, you can then take your catch and prepare some lovely meals for the whole family.

All the fishing gear will be ready for you on the boat. At the end of the trip, the crew will clean and fillet your catch, free of charge. Just bring your licenses, food, and drinks.

Captain Brandon and Frisky Reds invite you to Galveston for a wonderful day on the water.
