Reel Fishing Fever

(26) In high demand!
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.

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.

I came to this fishing trip with lots of expectations because I myself am the captain of a fishing boat in Israel. We set out at 6:00 and we left 5 minutes earlier and everything was ready for departure. The captain introduced himself gracefully and we went fishing. We started fishing and caught the first fish that was too small and therefore released. The captain explained to me about the nature of fishing in the area. We had an amazing common language because we were both fishermen but also noted that those with no experience at all would enjoy the service very much. Later we saw lots of dolphins and stopped for pictures. We tried several places to fish in them but sometimes the fish are not disciplined enough :).
Finally we settled on the spot and managed to capture an amazing red fish 3.9 kg, a fish that gave a very good fight. After a few more attempts, small fish were released. We were in the sea far more than the time agreed without any further demand from the captain. Finally the captain cleaned the fish for me and gave it to me in his cooler. I really enjoyed the conversation with him throughout the whole trip is very pleasant and friendly. In conclusion, it was a very successful trip and I highly recommend it. Thank you very much Captain I was happy to be with you.

Very nice 27 1/2” Redfish Captain Eyal. We went to the HarborWalk Marina afterwards and they were holding a fishing tournament. Everyone thought Captain Eyal won the tournament with that fish! He would have but we weren’t entered in it. Very enjoyable trip thanks to a great guy and like minded Captain.

Bill I’m sorry that this trip did not meet up to your expectations. I do remember several points on your trip that worked out good. Because I went West we stayed dry and that Reuben in your party among other fish caught several trout and a 3ft Blacktip Shark. I posted Reuben’s picture and again uploaded it. Let me remind you that while I can’t guarantee you’ll catch fish I help everyone feel they get a fair trip by offering to everyone extra hours on me of fishing. I also remember that because of the clear water the sharks were leader shy and I had to use fishing line instead of steel. Because of their sharp teeth that always leads to more break offs and I’m sure you hooked sharks but they broke the line. I would be happy to try again if given the chance and we can stay fishing until you say your thru. Sincerely Captain Terry

Well I'm back at it again after a long vacation compliments to Hurricane Harvey. I took Dr. Mike fishing last Thursday and he caught about a dozen Trout and several Reds. Fish due to the salinity of the water… Read Full Report →
