5 Star Fishing Charter

Come and enjoy fishing the Galveston Bay complex with 5 Star Fishing Charter. Join Captain Steve Hewitt, an experienced captain who can put you on some of the most sought-after inshore species in Texas. He’s ready to customize your trip for the best experience possible, so come aboard ready for an exciting day of fishing!

Step aboard a 25’ Gulf coast powered by a 250 HP Evinrude engine. This boat comes with advanced fishing technology, from GPS and fishfinder to a live bait well. On board, you will find rods and reels, with your choice of spin cast or open-faced. Up to five passengers can fish comfortably aboard this boat and children are welcome.

Capt. Steve has more than 30 years of experience fishing the Galveston area. He will help you catch Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Shark, and other species. While aboard you can enjoy the beautiful scenery as you drift over oyster reefs. You can keep your catch and he will clean and fillet it for you. If you prefer, you may also release your catch for another day.

Children over 6 are welcome to join in the fun. Life vests are provided for them, and they are sure to love catching a shark or two. Imagine the stories they will tell to their friends? Much better than video games!

5 Star Fishing Charter provides rods, reels, and tackle. This gear won’t let you down when you are battling the fish. Please remember to bring a Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp, which you should organize before the day of the trip. Live bait can be used for an additional cost. For more info, contact the Captain. Water is provided and you are welcome to bring snacks along with you. Your cooler can stay in the car during the trip, and be used to transfer your haul home at the end of the trip.

Come aboard today and catch some fish with Capt. Steve. Fish on!
