Join Captain Shane for a full day excursion right off the Galveston beaches. Wake up for a 6 a.m. or 9 a.m. departure, depending on how much of a morning person you are. You'll be targeting tarpon, bull reds, kingfish, jackfish and sharks, so get ready for some reelin'. The type of fishing will depend on the conditions, but you could be trolling lures, sight casting to pods of tarpon, or drifting natural bait.
Captain Shane will provide the boat, ice for drinks and fish, rods and reels upon request, and all baits. All you need is a Texas Fishing License with Saltwater Stamp and any sun protection and snacks you may want out on the boat.

Captain Shane Day took my brother and I tarpon fishing a couple miles offshore from Galveston and we had so much fun. We landed two tarpon and a jack. The tarpon was definitely on my bucket list and the whole time I was fighting this beautiful beast, I kept asking myself if this was really happening. Then I would tell myself to shut-up and reel, because I don't have it yet. I was shaking when we secured it at the side of the boat. I got my pic, my scale and a great memory! Thanks so much Shane, for allowing my this opportunity because of your angling expertise.
