Stray Cat Charters Galveston

North Holiday Drive
Galveston TX, United States

Stray Cat Charters invites you to experience a true Galvestonian fishing experience with Captain Jerry Praker. Jerry has fished the waters of Galveston, Texas his whole life and comes from a family of commercial fishermen who have been operating here since the 1920’s. This fishing-rich heritage means your captain has learned from the best and is able to provide unforgettable experiences for everyone on board.

Captain Jerry can take you fishing inshore or nearshore, depending on the trip option you choose for your party. The half day trip in the jetties are reserved for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum. The Shark fishing trip allows you to target all the inshore species that like to swim by the beach including Bull Shark, Blacktip, Hammerhead, Bonnethead, Sand Shark, Spinner, and lots more.

If offshore fishing is your dream option for a fun day on the water, you’ll be pleased to know that Kingfish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Mangrove Snapper, Skate, and other species live in these waters.

The 30’ Chris Craft Flybridge was originally built in 1977 and restored in 2017 to update all its features and provide its guests an even better fishing experience. Powered by twin 350 HP Yanmar engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 27 knots, this vessel is fast and safe. It features all the safety equipment such as life jackets and a CPR-crew (a huge plus!), as well as electronics used to locate the most productive fishing spots.

The vessel is very comfortable with a bed, a kitchen, a toilet, air-conditioning inside the cabin, a multimedia system for entertainment, and plenty of other features. You will use the livewell to store the bait, the icebox to keep the catch fresh, and the flybridge to sight the fish.

Stray Cat Charters carries Shimano and Penn rods and reels, a selection of live and artificial bait, a variety of tackle, and they have a first mate present on all trips. If you wish to keep some fish for dinner, they can clean and fillet your catch.

Captain Jerry and Geeber are fun, friendly, and professional.  I recommend Stray Cat Charters over other companies that I’ve had experience with and I’ll stick with them for all of my charter fish trips.

Captain and crew very friendly weather and sea did not cooperate-not their fault
I would talk to him a little more beforehand and let him guide me in what trip to book
My son wanted more because he had a great time and I only booked half day
