Kemah Fishing Charters specializes in fishing trips for beginners up to expert anglers on Galveston Bay. All the trips are conducted on inshore waters where conditions are typically calm, so no need to worry about rough seas. Captains will make sure you have a great time on the water. Kemah Fishing Charters aims to provide a relaxing, fun, and educational experience!

Your trip will start on a Blazer Bay 2400 with a Suzuki 300 outboard. The boat uses fishfinder and GPS navigation technology, a wireless trolling motor, and is also equipped with a livewell. We also have Nautic Star 244 xts and a Gulf Coast 22’
center console boat we run.

On your trip, you will be targeting Flounder, Sheepshead, Redfish, Speckled Trout, as well as Black Drum. Using light and heavy tackle, you can bottom fish, drift fish, spin, jig, and popping cork fish. Kids are welcome to join aboard starting at the age of 5.

The captain provides all the fishing gear, including rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. The only things you will need to bring are fishing licenses for everyone 17 and older, and any refreshments you may want for the outing. Captains work hard before, during, and after the trip, so tips are much appreciated.

Kemah Fishing Charters is waiting for you, come aboard and experience a fishing adventure in Texas!
