Reel Fishing Fever

(9) Selling out fast!
North Holiday Drive
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.

About the Captain

Terry Hashop
Galveston, Texas, United States
Member since March 2017
Born in Houston, Captain Terry is a licensed Captain through the U.S. Coast Guard. He has been fishing these waters all his life. He brings with him over 50 years experience. Captain Terry grew up inshore fishing until age 30 when he purchased the Mako he now Captains. After that time he spent the next 20 years fishing mainly offshore within 30 miles. At age 50, with the lowering of Snapper limits to 2 per trip (now for only 2 weeks a year) he split his fishing time to inshore and nearshore fishing.

I couldn’t ask for a better Captain to take me and my son out for a much needed day together on the water. We had alot of fun catching trout. Captain Terry took very good care of us and was well prepared. He is one of the most kind, friendly, and nicest person I ever met. I will definitely recommend Captain Terry to anyone interested in a day of fishing around the Galveston area.

Thanks Quentin but its easy to be nice to friendly people like you and Dillon. After catching over 10 trout by himself, I think Dillon has a future in fishing. Thanks again Captain Terry

I booked this trip for my husband for Father’s Day. Captain Terry was very friendly over the phone & answered all my questions. It was supposed to be a half day trip but the fish were not biting so Captain Terry let them fish all day! They didn’t catch much, but that happens, either way they had a great time! My husband really enjoyed himself. Thanks!!

I really enjoyed Ray,John and Carlos and hope to see them in the future soon. It is my policy that if fishing is tough then we keep fishing and it won’t cost you a penny more. We finally did end up with some fish and Ray with a 3ft Blacktip Shark.

Bite was tough, but Capt. Terry pulled out all the stops to get us in the action.  He stands by his satisfaction guarantee.  Didnt catch what we originally were targeting, but we did catch sand trout, gafftop catfish, needle fish, and flounder.  We had 4 and 5 year old boys with us, and Terry took care of them. Made sure they were in on the action.  I will gladly use him again when i get the chance.
