About Your Guide

Captain Scott Hickman is the owner of Circle H Outfitters and Charters has been operating Galveston deep sea fishing charters full time for twenty years. Through those years, Hickman has learned how to catch giant fish and a lot of them. Whether you are looking to catch trophy sized red snapper deep in the Gulf of Mexico or trout right off the coast of Galveston, Captain Scott will be able to take you there aboard one of his two, top of the class vessels.

No matter what trip you decide to go on with Captain Scott you will have the choice between a 48' fully loaded Fountain Express Cruiser and a 36' Contender. The Cruiser is equipped with a full kitchen and two full bathrooms with showers and plenty of comfortable seating making it the perfect boat for a long day out at sea. The Contender is equipped with in deck fish boxes for your large catches and has plenty of deck space for you to wrestle them down.

Captain Scott will supply the bait and tackle, set up your rods, as well as clean and bag all the fish you catch, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the open sea.

Captian Scott has the science down. Very knowledgeable. We were hoping for snapper but he was able to explain they were about 50 miles out due to all the fresh water in the gulf. He put us on some nice fish and we all enjoyed this trip. PS his contender is top of the line!! See ya next time captain!
