Muckleroy’s Guide Service

Fishing the Upper, East, and Trinity Bays, Muckleroy’s Guide Service is full service operation that will help you get the most out of the Galveston Bay System’s world class saltwater fishing opportunities. They offer full and half day charters 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.

Muckleroy’s Guide Service operates a 24 ft Triton center console boat that has comfortable seating for three to four 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. Captain Dean also operates a 23 ft 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, and 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, Muckleroy’s Guide Service 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 furnish you with equipment, lures, a comfortable boat, and a professional attitude. Please make sure to purchase a Texas fishing license prior to your trip and remember that if you want to fish with live bait, it will be charged at the market rate.
