About Your Trip

Captain Zach has fished professionally in Galveston for over 8 years. Zach is especially good with working with young and beginner anglers. Capt Zach's great sense of humor and ability to always find the fish is what makes him a damn good captain for fish with! If you are a novice or experienced angler, Capt Zach can find fish and create the fishing experience you are looking for. Weather it's trophy Speckled Trout, Bull Reds or Sharks, you will always have a blast fishing with him. Capt Zach likes to let the more experienced fishermen catch giant fish on light tackle.
