Frazier’s Guide Service – Bay Boats

Frazier’s Guide Service is based out of Galveston, Texas, and offers inshore and nearshore fishing charters on the Galveston Bay system and surrounding waters. Join Captain Ralph Frazier and his crew aboard one of their bay boats for some exciting fishing action.

Their fleet consists of 7 center console boats ranging in size from 22’ to 25’. The boats are manufactured by respected quality brands such as Boston Whaler, Ranger, and Mako, and are all very sturdy and versatile for fishing in these varying depths of water. They all come equipped with GPS and fishfinder, as well as live-bait tanks, iceboxes, and all the necessary safety equipment.

Trips include the use of quality rods, reels, and tackle, as well as a range of artificial lures. At the end of a productive day, the crew will be happy to clean and fillet your catch so you can expect to have a delicious meal upon your return.

The crew will get you exploring Galveston Bay, West Bay, East Bay, Trinity Bay or the surrounding waters, including reefs and wrecks. They will be happy to teach you the best methods to hook exciting species such as Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Flounder.

Capt. Frazier and his crew also offer thrilling offshore fishing action on their newly restored 35’ Donzi boat. Please note that for offshore trips fuel is not included in the price of the trip, and it depends on the weather conditions and the distance from the shore.

What are you waiting for? Join Frazier’s Guide Service and come have a great fishing adventure!
