Harry’s Guide Service is a charter that takes fun and fishing very seriously, with Captain Harry Arthur who has been fishing the Texas and Louisiana waters of the Gulf of Mexico for over 30 years. He is an avid fisherman who specializes in artificial lure fishing. Having aquired so much experience he knows exactly which fish bites which lure. He strives to make every guest’s trip an adventure to be remembered for life and will instruct guests on the best ways to catch fish. He will unselfishly share his knowledge and provide the lured to catch a variety of fish species.

You will fish aboard his 24 foot Haynie center console boat, which was originally built in 2010 and has a capacity for 4 guests. It is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine which makes it super fast and efficient on the water. The boat has a GPS system and a fishfinder to locate the fishing spots where the fish swim in schools, as well as life jackets, fire extinguishers and a first-aid kit for your safety. 

Harry’s Guide Service fishes inshore, nearshore, reel, flats and backcountry of Texas and Louisiana Gulf waters, and is able to put you on species such as the super tasty Flounder and Redfish, Spotted Seatrout and the excellent food value Tripletail. You will have top notch equipment in terms of rods, reels, tackle, lures and live bait all provided by Captain Harry, who will also happily clean and fillet your catch upon return to the shore. He will also have drinks and snacks aboard for refreshment, but if you are taking the full day trip it is advisable to bring your own lunch.

Had a great time fishing with Capt. Harry, super nice guy!! He put us on some good QUALITY specks. Out of 14 specks only 2 were less than 20”, one was almost 25”. These were good quality fish. Capt. Harry knows the bay and knows what is working and what isn’t. Thanks to Capt. Harry, my buddies, 60th Birthday present was a success.

Captain Harry is very professional and knowledgeable. Easy to talk to and likes teaching how to fish. We all learned something different.

I’ve fished with Harry multiple times and he always found the fish.  He knows where to go in all weather conditions.  He’s the only guide I call when I’m fishing Galveston.
