I can say captain Shane did what he could to get us some fish. However shark fishing was not what we wanted at all, Circle H outfiters did not delivered at all the main reason i booked with them it was because of the boat they advertise there were my wife and my daughter which the as women have needs and circle H outfiters advertise a toilet in the boat and the boat was not equipped with a tiolet. And on top of that all the hidden costs they don’t tell you about intill you have booked your trip,  over all it was a not very pleasant experience with circle H outfiters.  Don’t misunderstand Captain Shane did what he thought was appropriate for the trip. 
But circle H outfiters a big disappointment for me.

Good afternoon Mr. Barrios,
Thank you so much for the review and we are so sorry for the bathroom situation. We have multiple boats and it was my main focus to find the right captain for you to put you on variety of fish as we had discussed and I honestly didn’t even think of a restroom. Please send my opolgies to your wife and daughter.

Some people in the past have been surprised by the fuel cost so I gave you an inclusive price up front to make it simpler.

Thank you again for fishing with us and we hope to have you and your beautiful family back soon!

Kindest regards,
Shannon Hickman

You can’t go wrong booking a trip with Circle H Outfitters. I have used several other charter services in Galveston and Captain Scott is by far the most experienced and capable that I have ever experienced. Not only is he and crew great people he knows where to go to ensure you catch fish. I can’t say enough how great the experience was and Circle H Outfitters is the only charter service that I will use going forward.

Awesome experience, too bad 1/2 the anglers got sea sick.  Plenty of fish, great captain and first mate, good times.  We will be going back.

These guys are studs.  We had initially booked a 75-80 mile 1-day offshore trip, but mother nature had different plans.  Scott was on point and still put us on the fish.  We fished all day and caught all day.  Even with the sea conditions, it’s hard to have a bad day on one of Scott’s 36’ Contenders.  With triple 300 Yamaha’s at the transom, we spent more time fishing and less time riding.  As much as I hate to share Circle H with others, if your looking to catch fish and have good company in the crew, look no further.  Just round up some folks and give these guys a spin.

My sons and nephews really enjoyed it. It ways and experience of a time. Captain Scott and Clint make a great team. They were friendly and very helpful. They put us in the right spot at the right time. You get more bang for ya buck that way and the fishing experience is awesome that way. Now you know everything has a down side to it. Mine was leaving the fishing ground to soon but me and my boys love to fish. GREAT FISHING CHARTER AND OUTSTANDING CAPTAIN AND DECK HAND, HELL YEAH I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN.
