Reel Fishing Fever

Broadway Street
Galveston TX, United States

Reel Fishing Fever invites you on a fishing or sightseeing adventure in the abundant waters of Galveston, Texas. You will be fishing from Hitchcock, a city located on Galveston’s West Bay, just north of Galveston. Captain Terry has over 50 years of fishing experience and is a warm and welcoming person. He loves taking kids and families out on fishing and sightseeing trips.

Captain Terry can take you on an inshore trip to the Bays and Jetties for Redfish, Black Drum, Flounder, Trout, and Blacktip Shark. Alternatively, he can take you on a close offshore trip that will see you targeting Sharks, Tarpon, Kingfish, Cobia, and more.

The Dolphin watching and sightseeing tours can be done on their own or combined with your fishing trip. In the words of Captain Terry: “I see these combo trips on many of my family outings, non-avid fisherman and quite frankly with a lot of my friends”.

You will fish aboard a 20-foot Mako center console, originally built in 1983, and restored in 2017. The boat is powered by a 225HP Evinrude E-Tec engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. That means it is fast and reliable on the water and will get you to the best fishing grounds quickly. The boat contains all the safety and electronics you might need, as well as all the fishing gear.

Reel Fishing Fever is a reasonably priced charter that offers a wide variety of choices for your boating pleasure. Captain Terry is able to pick you up at a dock of your choosing if HarborWalk isn’t convenient. You can purchase live bait for $15 per person, so make sure you let Captain Terry know you are interested. He will provide you with bottled water on the trip, as well as a cleaning and filleting service at the end of the trip.

You will typically launch out of the beautiful, safe and private HarborWalk Yacht Club & Marina. Here they have a Ships Store for all your needs on the trip.

I have fished with Captain Terry many times over the years and it is a rare day that we do not get our limits.  On those rare days when the fish aren’t biting, Cap’n Terry will continue hunting for fish until I am so tired I tell him to take me in!  I’ve fished with many guides all over the world and I rank Captain Terry among the very best.  Some trips I am looking for limits and big numbers and on other trips, I am pursuing wall hangers.  He is always attentive to my desires for the day.  I have referred many clients to Terry and all have been equally impressed.  He is the most family friendly guide I’ve ever encountered.  He loves to teach and display his vast knowledge of the Galveston Bay system.  In the summer, a near off shore trip is a real treat as all bets are off as to what you might reel in.  From King fish to mahi-mahi to Snapper!  If you fish with Captain Terry, be sure and bring a large ice chest as you will be carrying home a lot of meat.  He is also a big catch and release proponent if that is your choice.  In short, without reservation, I recommend Captain Terry’s guide service.

Thank you Dr.Mike but I only put you on the fish you have to catch them. That being said you have no problem getting your share of fish. Your a pleasure to take fishing and one of the best fishermen I know. Tight Lines Captain Terry

For a couple of elderly fossils, we had an amazingly enjoyable adventure with Captain Terry. Water was a bit choppy so Captain Terry provided slickers in case there was any spray, which there wasn’t thanks to the boat’s high sides.

We have been surf and offshore, party and charter boat, fishing on the Gulf coast for over thirty years. This was our first trip out on the bay and it was more productive than any of our previous forays thanks to Captain Terry’s experience and knowledge of where to fish. We caught a variety of species including golden croaker, speckled trout, sand trout and flounder, which were all “keepers”.

Jim and Laura it was great taking you fishing. I’m glad to know in retirement you have your priorities straight, your enjoying fishing. Laura it looks like you might even be a natural at it. Hope to do it again soon. The Reds and Flounder are running now and the specks are happy with the water temperature as it is. Tight lines Captain Terry

Best fishing trip ever. Captain Terry was professional, prepared and very sociable. He had all the live bait we could ask for. He made sure everyone was having fun and catching fish. He would take us to the hot spots and set us loose. He then took us shark fishing and we ended up catching 5 Black Tip Sharks. I recommend to any and everyone.

Thanks Kevin,TC and Bill for the great review. I asked what you wanted to catch and you said “Something Big that Tugs Hard.” Sorry Kevin that you bruised your hand catching a big shark. Put some ice on that. Thanks Again Captain Terry.
