Whether you are an experienced fisherman or just a beginner, Galveston Fishing Charters will get you hooked on fishing just by being in the salty outdoors! The Galveston bay systems are healthy and full of a variety of species. Captain C.R. Maher has more than 25 years of experience fishing these waters and enjoys sharing his knowledge with anglers of all ages. So bring out the kids and let them experience the love of fishing.
You will fish aboard a 25’ Boston whaler powered by twin 115 HP Mercury engines. With a maximum cruising speed of 33 knots, this craft can get you to the fishing grounds in no time. She comes equipped with advance fishing technology, including GPS, fishfinder, and a live bait well. On board you will find all the gear you need.
Capt. C.R. aims to give you the very best saltwater fishing trip every time, whether you find yourself fishing the shallow waters inshore or chasing a hard fighting catch 1-5 miles from the coast.
You can fish inshore any time of year for the likes of Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum. Calm conditions and a quick ride back to shore make inshore fishing trips ideal for first time anglers and families with small children. Test the waters for a few hours or spend all day catching as many fish as you can.
In summer you can fish the nearshore waters for larger species such as Kingfish, Tarpon, and Sharks. These hard-fighting fish never fail to disappoint and you may just bring home some new bragging rights.
Galveston Fishing Charters include spinning and baitcasting gear. Live bait is available for an additional cost. You are welcome to keep your catch and Capt. C.R. will clean and fillet it for you.
Anglers age 17 and above must bring a Texas state fishing license with a saltwater stamp.
