Over The Top Fishing

Over The Top Fishing offers exciting adventures throughout the entire Galveston Bay Complex, Texas. Captain Dennis can take you out to Trinity Bay, upper Galveston, East Bay, West Bay, and Galveston jetties. Whether you are looking for some rod-bending action or just a fun day with your family, you have found the right place.

Captain Dennis will take you out aboard a 24’ Kenner center console, which is a stable and safe boat. It comes powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and provides comfortable fishing space for up to four anglers. It comes equipped with modern navigational electronics to aid your search for the fish, as well as the wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride. There is a live well loaded with bait (live bait is available at an additional cost), an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day, and a toilet for your maximum comfort.

Galveston Bay fishing is a rewarding experience no-one should miss. Captain Dennis specializes in various fishing techniques and is more than familiar with the methods that work best in the local waters. You will be able to test yourself in bottom fishing, trolling, drift fishing, as well as use light and heavy tackle. Your targeted species will depend on the season and will include Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, and Tarpon.

All trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip. You will need to purchase a fishing license prior to the trip, bring something to eat and drink, and enjoy the adventure!
