Texas Premier Guide Services - Galveston

The area around Galveston, Texas is famous for its nearshore and flats fishing. The Texas Premier Guide Service is part of why that fame exists. Their guides have been operating in the area for twenty years and that experience can be seen on their trips. Flounder, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout are teeming in the area and the guides know the bests spots.

You will go out on trips in their 23’ Baywater boat, with a total capacity of 6 anglers (depending on the trip). The guide service is fully equipped for Flounder gigging, light tackle fishing, trolling and drift fishing. The boat is equipped with a 250 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots. That speed is there to ensure you get to the fish in no time.

The equipment provided by Texas Premier Guide Services is professional-grade Penn. They also have custom-made lights for nighttime gigging as well as professional custom made Flounder gigs. Your enjoyment is paramount to the guides, catch cleaning and filleting are included in the price of the trips so you can just focus on the fishing.

Captain Travis Henderson is an experienced veteran of the area, he knows all the tricks of the local fish. He loves working with kids and there is no minimum age policy on board his vessel. Catching them while they’re young makes sure they grow up to be anglers worth keeping. Texas Premier Guide Services provide all the necessary equipment for their trips, but customers are advised to bring their own wading clothing. Live bait is available to anglers, at an additional cost.
