Spot On Charters and Captain Rodney Tompkins welcome you to a memorable day of fishing on the beautiful waters of Galveston, Texas. Your captain is a lifelong angler and Galveston native who knows exactly where to search for fish and how to make your trip fun and productive. Join him in the inshore and nearshore waters for a great fishing experience in Texas!

Your trip starts on a restored 22’ Triton 22DV center console that can accommodate up to 2 anglers. It’s powered by a 150 HP Honda engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. The boat uses modern GPS and radio systems to provide a safe and quick reach to the fish and back, uses a wireless trolling motor for a quieter approach to the fish, and features an ice-box and a livewell.

Using light and heavy tackle, you and Captain Rodney will be jigging for Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Redfish, Flounder, as well as Black Drum. You’re free to keep all the species you catch if you want to and take them home. Also, you’re more than welcome to bring kids on your trip.

The captain will make sure that all the rods, reels, and tackle, are ready for you on board when you arrive. He also offers to clean and fillet your catch when the trip’s over, completely free of charge. Before you depart, just make sure you bring fishing licenses, bait, snacks, and drinks.

Come join Spot On Charters and spend a great day of fishing in Galveston!
