Noto’s Guide Service invites you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime in the beautiful and bountiful waters of Galveston, Texas. They are dedicated to jetty fishing and offer exciting four and six-hour trips. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Dominic who has fished these waters since he could walk.

Captain Dominic has been guiding professionally for seven years and by using his lifelong knowledge of the Galveston Bay Complex, he is able to provide very successful experiences. He is very family oriented and friendly and will do anything to fit your needs.

Fishing is done aboard his 24’ Mako Center console, originally built in 1989 and restored in 2016. The vessel can comfortably accommodate up to four guests who will enjoy a smooth ride to the fishing grounds. Powered by a 225 HP Tohatsu engine, the vessel is stable and safe. It features all the safety equipment such as EPIRB, adult and child-sized life jackets, and a CPR-trained crew.

The vessel features a GPS and fishfinder that will help you locate the best fishing locations, a livewell for the bait, an icebox for the catch, a cooler for food and drinks, and plenty of storage space. For your entertainment, there is a multimedia system so you can even enjoy a favorite tune on the water.

Captain Dominic will take you fishing in the jetty, which is an awesome structure in the ship channel that holds lots of fish like Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. You can also do fishing on the bottom with live Shrimp, as well fishing for Shark, Stingray, Bull Reds, and lots of others species. If you venture further offshore, you can even target Mahi Mahi.

Noto’s Guide Service will provide Castaway rods, Shimano reels, a variety of tackle and bait, as well as drinks, and a fish processing service. All you need to take care of is a valid Texas fishing license, some snacks for the trip, and a hat!

My son & I enjoyed our outing with Captain Don. We were on the water at our first destination and within 10 min, the trout were practically jumping in the boat. We had a full stringer of Trout, Red’s, Sheepshead, etc,... As we had requested, we wanted “keepers” & “eaters”. We will be back.
