About Your Guide

Captain LG is a Galveston native and began his career as a Galveston fishing guide in 2000. While he offers wading trips for Speckled Trout and Redfish using artificial lures, his most popular trips are inshore trips drifting for Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder. Captain LG also enjoys hosting anglers to the Galveston Jetties for Shark, Bull Redfish, Bull Black Drum, Sheepshead and more.

Lastly, you can also enjoy nearshore trips chasing Sharks and Tarpon in the summertime aboard Captain LG's 25' Boston Whaler. The boat is powered by a 300HP Yamaha outboard that gets you where the fish are fast!

Rods, reels, tackle, and artificial lures are covered, and Captain LG is happy to provide live bait at an additional fee.

Captain LG is a hard-working, hard-laughing fishing guide who's only interested in showing you the best time possible on the water. He's great with kids and knows how to make everyone smile- luckily for you, that usually involves catching fish!
