About Your Guide

Galveston fishing charters don't get much better than trips with Captain Mike. Captain Mike can zip you around to his inshore spots chasing Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Bull Black Drum, and Sheepshead. Or you can head offshore hot after Red Snapper, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Amberjack, Grouper, and Tilefish.

Galveston inshore and offshore fishing is great year-round, so hop aboard with Captain Mike and see what it's all about. Captain Mike looks forward to hosting your group of up to 6 people aboard his 27’ Key West boat, powered by two 225 HP Evinrude engines.

The weather was sketchy, but Mike was able to find a great location for me and my two boys (9 & 13) to catch over 30 fish, mostly Trout, which turned out great on the grill for fish tacos! Looking forward to return when the weather is better for another Great Time!

Line Check never fails to disappoint. Captain Mike suggested a different fishing trip than what we booked based on the latest conditions, and we were so glad he did. It was a little farther out than a couple in our bunch wanted to go, but they were ecstatic when we returned with our limit. First Mate Travis was as excited about the fishing as anyone on the boat, and made the trip even more enjoyable. Thanks Line Check! See you again next year!!

Anyone looking to go fishing in Galveston this is absolutely the best company to use. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. I took my teenage son and we had a blast. Captain Mike and Travis were very professional and made our experience a memorable one. We will definitely go back and use Line Check Charters!
