SeaPlay Sportfishing - SeaPlay IV

(75) Going fast!
715 North Holiday Drive
Galveston TX, United States

SeaPlay IV is a great, comfortable boat for exploring the Jetties around Galveston Bay. The 27ft boat offers 360 degree fishability from her center console, and her large T-Top provides you with shade on those hot summer days. With ample seating and a large enclosed restroom and freshwater sink within the console, SeaPlay IV offers all the comfort and convenience you could ask for on an inshore fishing trip. She is furnished with VHF and GPS, as well as a depth recorder, and sports a Bow Pulpit anchoring system.

The charter’s mooring is only a 30 minute boat ride to the fishing grounds, which means even those who book a shorter trip can have an exciting fishing trip. You can expect to find Bull Reds and sharks in the Summer (May through September), as well as Flounder, Jackfish and Mackerel. The annual Galveston Jetty Drum Run takes place in early spring (February and March), where you can frequently encounter large Drum weighing over 25 pounds. If you want to be in with a good chance of bagging a Flounder, the best time to fish in Galveston Bay is in the fall, when you can intercept them on their annual migration.

Can’t recommend them higher.  Caught sheepshead, trout, rays, several sharks.  One big black tip.  Brad is very knowledgeable and a really good guy. Made the trip with my son and granddaughter perfect.

Awesome fishing trip.  Best charter we have taken.  I took my wife and two girls and we all caught a shark and I caught a 100 pound sting ray! Just awesome.  Brad was great with the kids, very knowledgeable and friendly.
