Get up bright and early for a 6 a.m. departure on this classic Galveston deep sea fishing charter. Enjoy a full day excursion, cruising over 80 miles offshore to reefs and other structures for bottom fishing. You'll even get to swing by some oil rigs and some of the guide's other secret spots. Captain Scott will use his knowledge and experience to help you catch several different kinds of trophy-sized fish, including Amberjack, Dolphin, and Red Snapper.
You will be aboard his 48 foot, fully-loaded Fountain Express Cruiser equipped with a full kitchen and two full bathrooms with showers. Good luck not having a grand time on this baby. In addition to providing the boat, Captain Scott will also provide all the gear, set up the rods for you, and clean the catch at the end of the day. This outing is meant for people with any skill level making it a great option for a family trip or advanced fishermen who want a go at some of the Gulf's biggest and baddest fish.

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!
