Saucier’s Guide Service

Saucier’s Guide Service offers great charters out of Crystal Beach, TX. Focusing on the inshore waters, you’ll go after a range of exciting, and highly-sought after fish. Tough-fighting and delicious in equal measure, target Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Tarpon, and Sharks in various locations around the bountiful Galveston area.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 25’ Boston Whaler center console. Powered by a 250 HP Evinrude E-Tec engine, you’ll get up to a top speed of 45 knots. She comes equipped with GPS and a fishfinder to help you find the best spots, along with a trolling motor and anchor system to make sure you stay on the fish once you’ve found them. Then, you’ll take advantage of high-quality rods and reels to give you the best chance possible of landing huge fish.

Captain Ray Saucier knows that everyone likes to fish differently, so he provides his customers with a choice of light and heavy tackle. You’ll have everything you need for a wide variety of fishing techniques including spinning, popping, jigging, spinning and even fly fishing. While he focuses mainly on lures, he can also arrange live bait for you for between $20 and $100 depending on the group size and trip length.

All Saucier’s Guide Service trips come with a free cleaning and filleting service for whatever you choose to take home with you at the end of the day. All you need to do is remember to buy a fishing license ahead of time and come aboard for a thrilling day’s fishing.
