Go inshore chasing Redfish and Tarpon or head into the Gulf of Mexico after big game fish. Galveston might be heaven for spin fishermen.
Just a short drive from Houston, the Galveston area provides a fantastically diverse environment for all different kinds of fishing. An angler here can fish light tackle in Galveston Bay or off the jetties. Many charters offer deep sea fishing as well, so you can head 50 miles out into the Gulf of Mexico and hook into monster tuna, billfish, and amberjack.
Galveston provides a unique fishing opportunity for anglers, something that you might only be able to find in the Gulf of Mexico. Many outfitters in Galveston offer oil rig fishing, combining a deep sea fishing trip with a reef-like experience. While the oil rigs do get a lot of bad press, they also act as a reef for the Gulf’s various sea life. The deeper rigs provide a novel fishing experience, as they present themselves as a reef where almost all types of fish (both shallow and deepwater) can be found.

Kapt Keepers Charters
Galveston charter fishing with a personal touch. A great fishing trip is our goal. Fishing the waters off of Galveston, Texas since 1976 Short and sweet...I started in 1976 at the age of 17, working on one of the largest party boats in the gulf, eventually making Captain at the same company. In 2002, I started my own charter boat business and still LOVE it when we bring the best catch available to the dock. PICTURE TIME!!! Simply put...IT"S A PASSION!!!! Bay and Jetty Trips: Bay and Jetty Trips are usually about 4-5 hours. Possible catches include red fish, drum, gafftop catfish, sharks, stingrays, and more. Deep Sea Trips: Deep Sea Trips can be from 6-12 hours. Possible catches include red snapper, ling, king mackerel, dolphin, sharks and many others. Shark Trips or customize to your needs, time limits, and fish desired. Just Call. Do to recent "close calls" to go along with the already too many times I have felt Shark teeth and Bites, I am enforcing a new policy to not bring the larger sharks (legal to keep or not) on board. Too much expense in my boats for the damage they can cause AND they do have potential to inflict career ending (or worse) bites. I'm sorry if this disappoints potential customers, but I believe my luck may be running out and I do love and want to continue taking people fishing!!!

With trips ranging from five to twelve hours, Hingle’s Guide Service gives you the opportunity to fish the bays, nearshore waters, and deep blue offshore waters from the heart of Galveston. The ‘Catillac’ is a World Cat 300 Tournament edition boat that is every angler’s dream.

Up to six anglers can fish in comfort aboard the Catillac, which is fitted with ample storage, large fish boxes, two live wells, and four 12V DC plugs that can power downriggers, electric reels, or kites. The stand up head gives privacy for the ladies, and an oversize hard top provides plenty of shade, giving you the perfect combination of fishability and comfort. Whether you want to experience the adrenaline rush of offshore fishing for King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Sharks, Tuna, huge Red Snapper and more, or to test your skills on inshore fish such as the crafty Redfish and Speckled Trout, Hingle’s Guide Service has the experience and equipment you need for a great time. With a captain who is one of the few B.O.I’s (born on the island) with over 20 years experience as a charter captain, you are bound to have a memorable day on the water.
