Muckleroy’s Guide Service

Fishing the Upper, East, and Trinity Bays, Muckleroy’s Guide Service is a full-service operation that will help you get the most out of the Galveston Bay System. They offer a variety of trips and are not bound to any single launching spot, meaning you will always be able to fish the best area for the day of your trip.

Capt. Dean operates a 24’ Triton center console boat that has comfortable seating for up to 4 anglers and is fully equipped for a day on the bay. Featuring a silent but powerful trolling motor, a large live well for your bait, and a fast 250 HP Mercury engine, this boat was built for catching fish in the local waters.

The captain also operates a 23’ Kenner center console, so you can be sure you will be fishing aboard the most suitable boat for the conditions.

While Trinity Bay is famous for its fall and winter fishing, it is an exceptional fishing spot all year round. This area of water gives both novice and experienced anglers the chance to have an enjoyable day out. It is full of Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder for you to catch.

Whether you want a family day drifting for Trout and Redfish over the shell reefs and wells, or to target trophies while wading from the shore, Capt. Dean will be able to cater to your wishes. They offer artificial and live bait fishing, and fish with Waterloo rods and a selection of spin casting and bait casting reels.

The captain will provide you with equipment, lures, a comfortable boat, and a professional attitude. Please make sure to buy a Texas fishing license before your trip and remember that if you want to fish with live bait, it will be charged at the market rate.

All that’s left to do is book a trip with Muckleroy’s Guide Service, and get ready to have an unforgettable fishing adventure!
