So don’t miss out and contact Scouts Out Fishing Charters. Captain Eric Armstrong will do his best so you have an amazing time on the water.

You’ll be cruising the waters of Galveston bay aboard his new Tidewater center console. This 27’ boat accommodate up to 6 guests per trip. It’s powered by two Yamaha engines that can reach speeds up to 44 knots. Additional amenities include outriggers as well as modern fish-finding equipment.

This charter provides a versatile service that covers inshore, nearshore, and offshore locations. There is a variety of fishing techniques at your disposal like light and heavy tackle, deep-sea fishing, and trolling. If you’re feeling sporty you might go after Kingfish, or if luck will have it you might catch delicious Snapper. Of course, Cobia, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum are also an option.

Before you start your fishing fun time be sure to get your Texas fishing license. As for the rest, all the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and bait will be waiting for you on board. The crew will clean anything you catch during the trip. Lastly, families with children will be glad to hear children are welcome.

You and your loved ones will have a blast with Scouts Our Fishing Charters. Even better, you might end up with some tasty fish in your fridge.

I spent 20 years in the military and was always stationed near the water. So when I got out in 2017 my family and I wanted to settle near the coast. Since moving to the Texas coast in 2017 I fell in love with fishing and I spend all my free time on the water. When fishing I'm usually catering to family and friends making sure they are catching fish and having a good time. I discovered I preferred fishing in the company of others even more than fishing by myself so I decided to become a guide.
