Reel Smooth Guide Service

Reel Smooth Guide Service is located in Galveston, Texas, and offers bay fishing trips throughout the entire Galveston Bay complex. Owned and operated by Capt. Michael Meza, the charter service provides fun family friendly and corporate Texas fishing trips.

Capt. Michael fishes aboard a 25 ft Majek Extreme center console boat that is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine. The boat is equipped with top of the line electronics, including a GPS, fishfinder and VHF radio, and features two huge livewells, an oxygen system for bait, a 75 lb thrust wireless trolling motor, an eight foot power pole and a jack plate. The boat gives a very comfortable ride, and has plenty of space for three to four anglers, with bucket seats and dry storage on board for all to use. With all the US Coast Guard certified safety equipment included on board, this is the ideal vessel for bay fishing in Galveston.

On a trip with Reel Smooth Guide service you can try out wade fishing, drift fishing or anchored fishing throughout the inshore Galveston Bays. You can either use live bait or artificial lures to target Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum and more, or you can travel further out to experience some exciting Shark action. You will be supplied with high quality tackle, with Shimano reels and Redtail rods making up a large part of the gear used. Whether you want to practise spin casting or bait casting, Capt. Michael will be able to provide what you need.

Thanks to Capt. Michael’s extensive experience fishing the Galveston Bay complex, he is confident that you and your friends or family will have an enjoyable and exciting trip with Reel Smooth Guide Service. The captain works hard on every single charter trip to make sure everyone on board has an adventure to remember. Whatever sort of trip you’re looking for, Capt. Michael will cater for your fishing needs!
