Galveston TX Fishing Guide

Galveston TX Fishing Guide fishes the waters of Galveston, Texas. With its aquatic life, saltwater habitat, and outstanding angling opportunities, Galveston will make you want to always come back for more.

Enjoy your fishing trip with Captain Darrell Hingle aboard a 33-ft boat, which is powered by twin 250 Suzuki engines. It can comfortably take up to six guests and is fully rigged with state-of-the-art navigational electronics, including a VHF radio, a fish finder, a GPS, and a radar. The boat is wheelchair accessible, features a toilet and an anchoring system to make sure you stay rooted to the fishing grounds. As well as that, it is equipped with a live bait tank and downriggers.

Whether it’s Redfish and Trout in the Bay or Snapper, Cobia, and King Mackerel offshore or even Tuna, Amberjack, and Grouper in the blue water – the Captain has all the knowledge and the equipment to get it done. He has been fishing the Galveston area since he was a child and knows all the hottest spots where the fish are hiding. On your day out with Hingle’s Guide Service, you may also land Flounder, Red Snapper, Blacktip Shark, and who knows what else!

Each trip with Galveston TX Fishing Guide comes inclusive with all the necessary fishing equipment to make a great catch possible, such as rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. The Captain will also clean and fillet the catch for you to take home for dinner or just fill the freezer.

For your adventure in Galveston, you will only need to bring your fishing licenses, food, and drinks. For added convenience, Captain Darrel can also pick customers up from Crystal Beach and Port Bolivar.

It’s all about catching!

Born in Galveston I have fished here my whole life, I enjoy giving people the same experiences I have had on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Whether it's fishing around Galveston bay or deep in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico I will do my best to ensure a fun, safe trip. When you book your trip with me you will be fishing with me, not some random guy running someone else's boat.
