Early Out Fishing wishes you a warm welcome to Galveston, Texas. Have a lovely day exploring the area’s inshore and nearshore waters and chasing many different species. Captain Christopher McAfee will guide you to the best fishing spots and make sure you have an enjoyable and productive trip.

Captain Christopher’s boat is a 2003 31’Cobia that had a major upgrade in 2020. Apart from Garmin navigation and a fishfinder, the boat has a full private head, live bait well, 2 large fish-boxes to keep your catch fresh and cold as well as plenty of shade with its large T-Top. The Cobia is also equipped with outriggers and powered by twin 225 Yamaha engines to get you fishing quickly. With a full walk-around deck, the boat provides plenty of room for fishing. The captain always has 3 rules on the boat – be safe, have fun, and catch fish!

The species you can target include Blacktip and Bonnethead Shark, Sheepshead, Flounder, Redfish, Black Drum, and Spotted Seatrout. The techniques you can expect to use are light tackle, heavy tackle, and bottom fishing. If you decide to keep the fish you catch, Captain Christopher can clean and fillet it for you at no extra charge.

All the fishing rods, reels, tackle, as well as live bait will be waiting for you on board. Just make sure to bring your fishing licenses, snacks, and drinks and you will be ready for the adventure.

Join Early Out Fishing and make some lovely memories fishing in Texas!
