Meador’s Guide Service

Meador’s Guide Service is located in Freeport, Texas. The company is operated by Captain Tim, a professional guide with over twenty years of experience. Having had the privilege of fishing the waters all over the country, the Captain was drawn back home to guide in what he considers to be the best Trout sanctuaries on the Texas coast.

Join Captain Tim aboard “Explorer”, his spacious 25-foot center console. It comes powered by a 250 Suzuki engine and can comfortably take up to four anglers. The Explorer is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS and a fish finder and has an anchoring system and an ice-box, as well as a live bait tank.

Meador’s Guide Service offers half and full day packages. You will be fishing the pristine waters of Freeport or Galveston, using a variety of fishing techniques. If you are a beginner, Captain Tim will introduce you to light tackle, wading, jigging, popping, and drift fishing. Your targeted species will be the Captain’s specialty – Flounder, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout.

Your trip will include rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home and fill the freezer.

Meador’s Guide Service provides an excellent service at unbeatable rates. A day out with Captain Tim will give you lifelong memories and will make you always want to come back. Welcome aboard!
