Terry's Guide Service LLC

Terry’s Guide Service LLC is a fishing charter that does regular fishing trips in Galveston Bay, Texas. It is owned and operated by Captain Ken Terry, who has more than 25 years of experience fishing these waters and is eager to show you what fishing these waters is all about. All anglers are welcome aboard, as are group trips.

You will be fishing on a 24’ Kenner boat, that is powered by a 200 HP Mercury Optimax engine, that can have it going up to an impressive 48 knots. Apart from all the necessary safety and navigation gear you would need for a good trip, the boat also has a wireless trolling motor for when you need to run silently.

Captain Ken offers full day and half day drifting and wading trips in the Galveston Bay waters, where you will be targeting fish like Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, Sheepshead, Trout, and more. His personal favorite is going after aggressive schools of Redfish and Trout with a big topwater lure.

The price of the trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle, and it is up to you to bring a current fishing license with a saltwater stamp. Those who want to go on a wading trip will need to bring their own waders and assorted gear. Captain Ken will clean your catch after the trip so you don’t have to. Make sure to also pack a pair of polarized sunglasses, some food and drinks if you’re so inclined, and you’re all set.
