December is starting off with some uncomfortable weather for fishing; however, it does not seem to be bothering the fish. Anglers willing to tough it out early Tuesday were rewarded with some nice fish. Tuesday afternoon, conditions improved as… Read Full Report →

We essentially had a privet trip since it was only the four of us, the captain and his deck hand which was nice. The wind was high so we ended up fishing near shore…. places we could have fished for free. They also seemed to not be equipped for this kind of fishing. The hooks where to small and the shrimp (I would have used squid)  kept getting pulled out without catching the fish, to make matters worse there wasn’t enough weights on the lines to keep them on the bottom when more was requested the deck hand informed us it was operator error….. overall it was a pleasant day but the day before when fishing in the ocean with just one person caught more fish…. today we caught 6 eatable fish in the 4 hours with a professional guide. If it had been my company or boat I would have offered to stop half way though and charged half price.

Went with my husband & 2 boys, and had a great time. We caught 10 or 11 keepers and thought our guide, Russell, was very friendly and knowledgeable. I’d recommend using him in the future. Tks for a great fishing trip!

The rating reflects not only my lack of knowledge of what to ask about fishing at sea, but also booking a trip during high volume fishing time. 
Ask:  How far out to sea will we go? (We did not go very far out to sea—I was thinking more  
          deep sea fishing)
      How many seats are available for my party to sit on?  (Their were 2 seats for 5
          people during our 5 hour trip, also the boat depicted on fishingbrookers’ website is not
          the one we went out on)
I understand when a crew is short-handed, however, the customer should be kept in the loop.  Captain Mike did the best he could on the notice (I gather) that he had.  We were asked to show up to Pier C at 0645hrs, call him, and he would have us picked up by golf cart.  We shipped off a little later than expected 0710, not too big of a deal.  (Advice for the crew, call the customer and let them know it’s going to be a little later than stated, I would of been okay with that.)  After seeing the types and sizes of the fish through their website, it was kinda of a downer to catch the small fish that we did (once again, it could of been the time of year, and they can’t control the fish in the sea).  I do have to say, the variety of the few fish we did catch was surprising.  I have only catch freshwater fish.  We caught a lady fish, black drum, speckled trout, catfish, stingray, and a croaker.

This was a surprise trip for my husband and my dad for Father’s Day.  My 8 year old son went along with them as well as my brother in laws.  They allowed me to add a guest at the last minute and were always quick to respond to any questions via text. The guys had a blast and all said they would love to do it again.  This experience for them was well-worth the price!

The boat and the captain were both great.  We did expect to go out a little farther and to be able to catch some nice fish.  But fishing is like a lot of other things, it is sometimes good and sometimes bad.  Maybe next time.

We had the best fishing trip! We caught a lot of fish and caught onto a large jack fish and fought that fish for happy and a half and it was well worth it. Perfect day, perfect waters and we had Capts. Russell and Dereck with us and they definitely wanted and helped you have the experience you were looking for! We thought we had a record SheepHead today and it was shy 3lbs. But the excitement was there and had to bring him in to weigh. Everyone was excited to see the size of that fish! Thanks to Galveston Fishing Charter Co. we will be back again!

Had a great skipper and the day went by just catching lots of fish. It could have only been better if the red drums were biting. If ever back in the area I will book again. Thanks

Capt. Jonathan—Your the BEST!  I went for a half day trip—rainy drizzly foggy—the fishing was slow,however it is that time of year—you cant make them bite-however we caught some cat. got some strong hits—Capt. Jonathan is well versed in his job-good conversationaist-good clean boat—a good representative for the company—I can see requesting Capt. Jonathan in the future—Thanks for the memories—Marco Bennett

The trip was booked to coincide with a graduation so not fishing wasn’t an option. The weather was cold and rain. The captain was on time and took us to the jetty per the charter but the fish weren’t there and we spent the day waiting on a bite. 6 rods for 3 men fishing resulted in 1 black drum and 2 catfish. NOT an impressive day for the fare. I felt there should have been more spots to try, not just wait for a fish to come by….

The trip was excellent!  As soon as we anchored my son and I began to catch fish.  We were catching mostly reds and trout.  Our captain, “Jim” was very polite courteous.  He keep us ready with live bait and good conversation.  He also shared a few good tips that I will use again and again.  Great trip!

only caught I half a dozen small fish not much action I felt we should have caught larger fish. Captain was nice got it there and back safely but the fishing was poor. spent 500 bucks to catch a few small bait size fish should have stayed in Houston and fish the local pond for nothing. Thanks.

Capt. Jonathan was terrific. Very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. And that’s putting you on the fish. From the very first cast we had fish on. I caught a nice 25” red fish on my last cast! What a way to end a great fishing trip!

We caught about 40 fish in 1.5 hours.  My kids 5 and 10 years old loved it.  Cpt. John and his First Mate (wife) were great hosts and knew what they were doing and where the fish were.  The other boats around us were not catching nearly as many as we were.  I sent photos to you in the email yesterday.
