Sharktooth Charters will show you around some of the most prolific waters off the coast of Texas! Captain Joel Taylor has a lot of experience when it comes to fishing in the area, so he’ll make sure to take you to all the secret spots and honey holes on a fun-filled adventure.

Your vessel will be a 26’ Tiara center console boat powered by a 200 HP Mercury engine. Featuring a GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio, as well as an icebox and a live bait tank, the boat is fully equipped to take up to 6 guests on their next fishing adventure.

Capt. Joel will have all the fishing equipment ready for you – rods, reels, and tackle. You’ll be fishing using live and dead bait, and the captain will have you bottom fishing, trolling, and drift fishing to put you on your target fish. After a successful trip, he’ll be happy to clean and fillet your fish so you can take it home for a delicious meal.

While Captain Joel is a big fan of Shark fishing, he also targets a range of other local species, such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder, as well as nearshore and offshore species like Amberjack, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, and King Mackerel. He offers full day and half day trips that take place in the Galveston Bay complex and beyond into the Gulf.

Join Sharktooth Charters and experience some of the best fishing in Texas first-hand!
