I’ve been running charters since 1996, both inshore and offshore. In the past couple of years, I’ve settled into strictly bay, jetty and beachfront fishing. I’m from Galveston and have lived in Galveston county my entire life. I enjoy showing people the sights of Galveston Bay and catching a few fish while we are at it. Kids are welcome and always are fun to have on board. I hope you choose my service for your day on the bay. When booking with me you can be assured you will fish with me, the owner and I’ll do my best to provide a damn good time!

Hingle's Guide Service Trips

We will meet at a predetermined location that is best for you and provides quick access to fishing. I provide the rods, reels, tackle and bait for the day. I just need you to bring your drinks and snacks in a small cooler and to make sure everyone has a valid fishing license. We will fish from my 24’ Sea Pro with Suzuki 200 hp engine to get there fast, using live bait most days; we will fish reefs, jetties or other structure around Galveston Bay. Once we are done we will return to the dock where I will clean and filet your fish and package them in gallon ziplock bags. Read More

Darryl was knowledgeable but could have been more helpful with a safety talk. We didn’t know where life vests were and we had an 80 yr old man with us. Darryl was considerate of him and watched out for him. It was a nice day.

Darrell was friendly, patient and knowledgeable regarding the Galveston waters. This was the first saltwater fishing experience for my 11-year-old son. Darrell was great working with him and made both of us feel welcomed and comfortable.

Darrell the captain was great and new all the right spots to get numbers. We were hoping to catch some bigger fish but you will probably have to book a whole day trip to go further out for that. Had a great time. Boat was clean and well maintained. Will use Darrel again but for a whole day trip next time.

Couldn’t of asked for a better guide for a family fishing trip. Super nice with the kids and boat was perfect. Weather didn’t cooperate with our plans, but Darrell still made accomodations and we had a fun time!

Had a great trip good captain Darrell although it was wasn’t the best conditions we still caught a few fish and had a great time even called before our trip to let us know that the fishing was not going to be that great due to weather. Gave us the option to cancel our trip at no cost to us we decided to go anyways and had a great time thanks Captain Darrell you will see us again soon Highly recommended

Captain Darrell was awesome he was knowledgeable about the area, we caught fish when the fishing was tough. He has a great boat it is large and very stable even in rough water. It was a great outing and spending half a day with Captain Darrell was a fantastic experience for me and my 16 year old grandson. I would recommend his charter service to anyone looking for a great Captain and an excellent boat.
