Frazier’s Guide Service - Bay Boats

Frazier’s Guide Service are based out of Galveston, Texas, and offer 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 seven center console boats ranging in size from 22 ft to 25 ft. 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, ice boxes, and all the necessary safety equipment.

Frazier’s Guide Service will get you exploring Galveston Bay, West Bay, East Bay, Trinity Bay or the surrounding waters, including reefs and wrecks. The crew will be happy to teach you the best methods to hook exciting species such as Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Flounder, and more. Trips include the use of quality rods, reels and tackle, lures, and cleaning and bagging of your fish at the end of the day.

Capt. Frazier and his crew also offer thrilling offshore fishing action on their newly restored 35 ft 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.
