Reel Fishing Fever

(4) In high demand!
Harborwalk Boulevard
Hitchcock 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 $10 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
Hitchcock, 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.

Mr Boyd I’m sorry to see that you we not completely satisfied with your trip. I always strive to give my clients’ their money’s worth. Although you caught 4 different varieties of fish I know the fish weren’t biting that well that day. For that reason I gave you a full days fishing for a half days price. It’s important to mention that when you ask for a combination dolphin watching and fishing trip your actual time fishing will be less and you should expect to catch less fish. I’m happy to say we saw more dolphin than I typically see on a trip and I am currently one of only a few guides out of over 100 in the Galveston area that allow for combination trips. Again I am sorry that this trip did not live up to your expectations and I hope you can give me another opportunity in the future.

We took the half day trip for fishing, dolphin and bird sightings. We are avid birders and were amazed at the birds we saw when Captain Terry took us to bird island where we saw spoonbills, herons, egrets, ibis, pelicans, etc. by the hundreds nesting it was a wonderful experience for birders. We also spotted a large pod of dolphin twice. Were a little disappointed in fishing only caught one keeper but it was very windy that day and Capt Terry offered to refund our money before we went out if we wanted to back out, we were just there for a few days so we went anyway. But the birds and dolphins made the day worth it. Capt Terry was wonderful, he was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, a pleasure to be around. We hope to try it again some day in the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed taking your group on this trip.Though it was quite windy, it was a lot of fun.I was impressed by all of you. What a very energetic and determined bunch you are! It would be great to do this again as the windy season is coming to a close soon.I look forward to seeing you again- Captain Terry.

I took my girlfriend out for a day on the water around Galveston,Texas. She said she didn’t want to go fishing for 6 hours but would like to go on a boat and fish some. I found Captain Terry who would split his fishing time with dolphins and other things to look at. Since I’m not working today, I didn’t feel like waking up at 5 am and ask if we could go later if possible. He said no problem and how about meeting him noon at the marina. I told my girlfriend that we are fishing only for a few hours and looking at dolphins and other stuff the rest of the time. We really had a good time that day and now she wants me to get a boat so I owe this guy. We fished for maybe 2 hours and caught trout. Then seeing she was getting bored Captain Terry left and we looked at dolphins. Then we went back to fishing again for about an hour and caught flounder and finished looking at an 1800 sailing ship, a concrete sunken ship, a battleship and a submarine. If your bringing your girlfriend who doesn’t fish, fishing then this is the way to go. Thanks again

Fishing Reports

Jack in the Boat

Last Friday boated 6 Jack Crevalle, 1 line stripped and 1 broken rod. Sometimes fish are so big you can't turn them from heading to Cuba and that is a blast as well. Read Full Report →
