trip description for Galveston Bay fishing 4 Hour or 6 Hour in Galveston

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. Do we fish if it’s raining or windy? Safety is a priority. If there are severe storms in the area or if the wind is out of control, I’ll suggest we delay or try to reschedule the trip. There’s no sense in going out and being uncomfortable, and I will never put us in danger. But if it’s just a little rain, let’s go – the fish are already wet! 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

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    We had an amazing time with Captain Steve and Chris. They were very knowledgeable about the areas and where good spots to fish were. We visited several different spots inshore and caught tons of fish! They were absolutely incredible when it came to showing us how to use the fishing poles, bait the hooks and helping us once we caught the fish. If we had any questions/issues with the poles, they helped us out. My family and I had an incredible time with them and were surprised at how much we caught! Captain Steve even cleaned the fish for us and bagged up the fillets so we did not need to worry about that. All around great time and my family is already talking about taking another trip out with them later this year.

    Nicholas Y. with Brandon M. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Steve is the best. Knows so much about fishing in general and the area in specific. We didn’t catch many today but we had an excellent experience anyway. Can’t wait to head out with him again.

    Calvin S. with Brandon M. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    We had a GREAT time. Started on time, stayed out past end time! CPT Jeb is personable, knowledgeable, and professional. Although we didn’t limit out, CPT Jeb kept the hooks baited and wet giving us the best opportunity at fighting the big bull reds!

    Captain experience really did my group well! Great way to celebrate a bachelors party. They helped in many ways, especially when there was last minute adjustments needed due to weather. They were all in ! Captain Jason & Connor gave us the experience we needed !

    Crockett G. with Jason W. of Galveston, Texas

    Captain Jason had us on the fish early. Great day of fishing. Probably caught at least 30. Great day on the water with my family and very laid back Captain. Appreciate you Captain Jason and we will definitely be booking again

    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.

    John M. with Darrell H. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    The guide was not inviting. He never introduced himself and had no concern for our well being. We had two guests who were sea sick and he never showed any concern. While he did finally agree to bring them back to shore, his lack of respect for us as customers and human beings was not professional.

    Dustin P. with Rodney H. of Freeport, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Bobby & Jonathan were PHENOMENAL. We took the 6 hour shark hunt and they both went above and beyond to catch everything we could. We had a group of 7 from age 5 to 30. They made sure we ALL had a blast. 1000/10. Absolutely recommend and must do again.

    Jaci S. with Houston F. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    This guys passion and dedication to doing what he loves is absolutely incredible and 100% genuine. Fantastic trip for my Son and I to be a part of Jason getting this 8’ 7” Tiger Shark notched in his belt this year.

    Daniel G. with Jason G. of Port Aransas, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    My son and I wanted to go fishing over spring break. He had his heart set on going deep sea fishing. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans. However, after speaking to Brandon we identified the best day possible to fish the bay. Captain Steve and first mate Jimmy took us out and made sure we had an outstanding time. While the boats around us were struggling to catch anything, my son was busy all morning catching fish. The weather window was perfect and we had a great time. These guys are great!!! We will definitely be back. Thanks again to Brandon, Steve and Jimmy.

    Reuben was a very nice guy, but his view of guiding clients needs to change, l guess he fishes only go reds and specks. We only fished shipping channels with croakers on bottom. We caught a few specks, no redfish and spent most of the time cleaning seaweed off line. I mentioned to him I wanted to catch reds and mangrove snapper in the beginning. The only bait we had was croaker and I have been fishing the island many years and several other guides and we always caught a lot of the snapper, specks and redfish. He may be a good fisherman but having clients catch a lot of fish is the most important thing or at least trying, we did not, used only one type of bait, one location just different parts of it spaced out a little. I would have rather traveled 10 more miles and caught no more fish than staying in the same place catching gafftops and few specs mixed in, boring morning and in his defense we would have had a few more keepers maybe 4 or 5 if they had not raised length limit from 15 to 17”. We wound up the day with 3 keeper trout out of group of 4 on boat. Should have paid more attention to other review. Sorry will not.be using this service again
