    Michael did an excellent job giving us opportunities to reel in a limit of trout. He put us into some sheltered areas to accomplish this due to turbulent waves in the bay. Great customer service. Michael’s experience led us to book with him.

    Oh, man, let me tell you about this fishing charter in Galveston. If you want an adventure on the high seas that rivals Moby Dick without the depressing ending, book a trip with Captain Sean and his first mate Abbie. These folks know their stuff. So, we start the day with my stepdad, bless his heart, hooking a stingray. Yeah, you read that right. He thought he was reeling in a sea monster. The water was choppy, and I was starting to think this was gonna be a long day of nothing but stories about the one that got away. But Captain Sean, the Gandalf of the Gulf, says, "Hold my beer," and finds us the perfect spot. The man’s a fish whisperer. I don't know how he does it. One minute, we’re fighting the waves, thinking we’re gonna spend the day swapping sea shanties, and the next, we’re reeling in trout like it’s a fish buffet. Captain Sean knows every nook and cranny of that ocean like it’s his backyard. And let’s not forget Abbie, the deckhand. She’s like the ninja of fishing. You need a new bait? She’s got it before you even ask. Tangled line? She’s on it. The only thing she can’t do is make your stepdad catch anything other than weird sea creatures. By the end of the trip, we had caught our limit. We were tired, sunburned, and grinning like idiots. It was one of those days you remember forever. If you’re looking for a fishing trip that’ll make you feel like you’re in a Hemingway novel, do yourself a favor and book with Captain Sean and Abbie. Five stars aren’t enough for these legends.

    Shirley G. with Shawn W. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great time. Such a great experience and appreciate the help making memories. Captain Derek with Reel man fishing charters was friendly, knew where to go to catch fish and genuinely cared to give us a good fishing experience.

    Paul S. with Meghan B. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Storm the day before put the bite off, but we caught lots of Catfish, several near 5 lbs, so my grandson enjoyed that. Capt Mike worked for his money, constantly repositioning the boat to our advantage & taking us out to try for Sharks upon our request. He kept the language clean, which, knowing alot of Sailors, was a bonus...He also made sure my grandson had an approved life vest & hooked and passed a couple of the bigger fish to him. Overall, I'd charter with him again for sure. A+++

    Robert E. with Mike E. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great trip with Captain Derek!! Reeling in the big fish, lots of laughs, and learned some Galveston history to top it off! Thank you Captain Derek! We will definitely be back!! Fish on!!!

    We had an excellent time with Captain Mike. He not only takes you to where the fish are but educates you on how to fish for a particular species. Very kind and very knowledgeable. II wish I could give him more than 5 STARS. I will definitely use Mike as my future guide.

    Tim S. with Mike C. of Galveston, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    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 Jonathan was awesome! Very honest and upfront about weather conditions and what fish to expect to catch. Captain was very friendly and helpful! When fish weren’t bitting, captain was Johnny on the spot to get us to a new spot in order to catch fish. We had a great time on our 6 hour trip and came back with plenty to eat! We would recommend Captain Johnathan 10 times out of 10!

    Hunter E. with Meghan B. of Galveston, Texas

    Justen was absolutely awesome I had a blast. He got me onto the target species I wanted instantly as well as other that I've never caught before. Top notch captain, gear and boat couldn't ask for better will definitely be booking with him again. Non stop action!
