Galveston Quality Fishing Guides

Galveston Quality Fishing Guides offer top-rate inshore and flats experiences out of Galveston TX. Captain Lg is a Texas native who has spent his whole life fishing the Galveston Bay system. With over 30 years of experience under his belt, he knows all the best spots to hit for the different species he targets, and will do everything he can to get you hooked up all day long!

Captain Lg’s 25’ Boston Whaler center console was fully restored in 2013 and makes for the perfect vessel for fishing the flats and bays in the area. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine to a top cruising speed of 30 knots, she is great for getting into the skinny waters due to her shallow draft, but still boasts a comfortable ride and plenty of dry storage on board.

Captain Lg runs specialized trips for hunting Sharks and Tarpon inshore, as well as more relaxed charters around the Galveston Bay system, seeking some tasty Redfish and Trout. You can also catch Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Flounder.

Your rods, reels, and lures are covered but if you want to use live bait, it comes with extra charge. Kids are welcome on all trips, just contact the captain in advance to check if he has the right life vest size.

With Galveston Quality Fishing Guides, you’re surely getting the fishing experience you deserve!

I grew up in the fishing/shrimp industry. My family owned and operated Boyd’s One Stop fish house and bait camp. I ran a shrimp boat from a very early age. I have been fishing the Galveston Bay complex my entire life. I decided to become a full time professional fishing guide in 2000. Fishing is my passion and I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with customers.
