SeaPlay Sportfishing - SeaPlay V

SeaPlay Sportfishing Charters invites you to experience offshore fishing from Galveston at its best. Step aboard SeaPlay V, SeaPlay Sportfishing’s offshore charter boat, and get ready for a day to remember.

When you fish on the SeaPlay V you can expect to use a wide variety of fishing techniques that will get you hauling in a whole range of species. In season, Capt. Donnie will help you bottom fish for Red Snapper, troll weedlines for large Mahi-mahi and Wahoo, as well as sightcast and work the bottom structures for other fish such as Amberjack, Grouper or Kingfish.

At 40 ft, SeaPlay V can comfortably hold 6 passengers and has all the amenities you would hope for in a larger boat, including a large, comfortable cabin and a private restroom. Powered by twin Diesel Engines, she can get you to the fishing grounds safely and reliably, and she is also furnished with a full compliment of electronics to get you to those big Galveston fish.

Capt. Donnie uses good quality equipment, with his tackle made by Shimano, Penn and ABU Garcia. As well as using live bait, Capt. Donnie uses a variety of artificial lures, including Mold Crafts, feather jigs and tremblers. All bait and tackle is included in the price, and your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the day.

Capt. Donnie has lived in the Galveston area since he moved there as a kid in the mid-60s. As soon as his family settled in, his dad purchased a 25' cabin cruiser, and since then Donnie knew that he was going to spend the rest of his life on and near the water. He has been fishing Galveston Bay, the Galveston Jetties, and the offshore opportunities in the area most of his life.
