Book'em & Hook'em Fishing Charters

Book’em & Hook’em Fishing Charters are located in Galveston - one of the best fishing locations on the Gulf Coast of Texas. The Galveston Bay Complex, where you will fish, offers extraordinary fishing for a number of shallow water species. The fish are fun to catch and taste deliciously.

Captain Epi Garza provides Galveston fishing trips for the entire Galveston Bay Complex. He is a professional guide with over 20 years experience fishing the Galveston Bay. This experience means he knows the best spots, is able to provide sound advice and provide his guests with a great fishing experience.

Offering a variety of fishing trips including wade fishing, drifting, and anchor fishing, Captain Epi can meet your fishing needs. He will put you on Redfish, Flounder, and Spotted Seatrout which populate the Bay in healthy numbers. You will have the choice of using live or artificial lures, rods, reels, and tackle.

Fishing takes place aboard a 25’ Haynie Magnum saltwater fishing boat, originally built in 2015 with a capacity for four guests. Powered by a 250 HP Mercury Pro XS engine, this boat will get you from one productive spot to the next in a flash. It is fully equipped with the necessary safety and electronic features such as a Lowrance 7 touch HDS GPS and a fishfinder. There is also an iPilot wireless trolling motor, a power pole, and a Fusion stereo with Wet sound speakers.

Book’em & Hook’em Fishing Charters will provide you with a fish cleaning service at the end of your trip, so bring a cooler for your fish. You are advised to bring food and drinks for the day, and a customary Texas Fishing License with a Saltwater stamp. Bring a camera to capture your victorious moments, polarized sunglasses, a hat, and enjoy your day!
