Sharktooth Charters

(30) Just booked!

Captain Joel Taylor offers fun charter fishing trips from Galveston, Texas. He offers full day and half day trips that take place in the Galveston Bay complex and beyond into the Gulf.

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

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 fishes with live and dead bait, bottom fishing, trolling and drift fishing to put you on your target fish.
