Captain Michael offers guided Galveston fishing charters for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and Sharks.

He offers guided charters for wade fishing and drift fishing in the inshore Galveston Bays with live bait or artificial lures to catch Speckled Trout and Redfish and loves heading out of the Galveston Bay Complex for some nearshore shark action.

Jetty trips, kid trips, corporate or family oriented fishing trips are also popular with Captain Mike. With over 20 years of experience fishing the entire
inshore Galveston Bay Complex, you and your group will have a fun and exciting trip.

The entire Galveston Bay Complex is well known for excellent inshore bay and nearshore fishing all year round. Galveston Bay is the largest estuary on the Texas Gulf Coast and is rightly considered one of the very best fisheries in Texas! Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder and Shark trips are very popular, and Captain Michael's excited to host you on his 2011 25 ft. Majek Extreme powered by a 2011 300hp 4 stroke Yamaha for a dry and safe day on the water. Captain Mike's boat is also loaded with top of the line electronics and all U.S. Coast Guard approved safety equipment.

Captain Michael is always professional and courteous to his guests and he prides himself on giving his best effort on every fishing trip. Catching fish is always goal number one, but he makes sure to build your trip around your personal fishing needs and, most importantly, he makes sure you enjoy your fishing experience. It doesn't matter if you are a young novice fisherman or an experienced saltwater angler, Captain Michael has a personalized trip waiting for you.

Captain Michael was a complete professional and knew what he was doing. Handled everything that was thrown at him from my inexperience to my tantrum having 5yr old. Helped my son catch his first fish and my son is already wanting to go back despite melting on the boat. Can't wait to go again!

Captain Mike's the best. I question his taste in music, though--ha ha. Seriously, though, he put us on the fish and got us to our limit right before storm rolled in which was especially impressive considering the two fools he had to coach all morning. Follow Mike's instruction and you will catch fish! We even caught a random 4ft gar. Mike knows that bay like the back of his hand and he will get you...

Captain Mike was friendly and helpful. I (Stephanie) didn’t know how to cast—or really do anything—and Mike was patient and showed me what to do. My husband, Scott, caught several fish and Mike also let us reel in quite a few that Mike caught. It was a really nice and relaxing trip. We’ll be back!

Michael did an excellent job giving us opportunities to reel in a limit of trout. He put us into some sheltered areas to accomplish this due to turbulent waves in the bay. Great customer service. Michael’s experience led us to book with him.

Captain Mike was absolutely phenomenal. From the first hour we were on the water, he had us on spots where we were already catching. His personality is friendly, helpful, and unfussy. We caught sheephead, redfish, trout, and too many other species to list. My advice? Book him ASAP!!!!!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
