His skill and knowledge are extraordinary and he is great with kids! You couldn’t really ask for more!
Galveston Bay is a holy grail for Redfishing, Trout fishing, and Flounder fishing. This area has such a high concentration of the three species, that it really is hard to come off a boat empty handed. Redfish and Trout are present year-round with peak months from August through December. They are mostly caught using light tackle.
Flounder is here in most of the year, too, but it has it’s off months. November is a no-no, whereas August through October are good, and December is the best with monster Flounder being pulled up from the seabed. Flounder can be caught using bottom fishing techniques since they spend their days lying camouflaged on the seabed. A popular alternative is Flounder Gigging. It happens at nighttime using high-powered lights and gigging poles used to probe and pull Flounder out.
What to Expect
Fishing is done aboard a 24’ South Shore center console, originally built in 2016 with a capacity for 4 guests. Powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, this vessel is perfect for the shallow waters of Galveston. The GPS and fishfinder are used to locate the most productive spots, and the super shallow ones are accessed using the wireless trolling motor.
Triple D Charter provides spinning rods, reels, and lures. Live bait can be purchased at a market price at a customer’s expense. To fish in Galveston, you must have a current Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp.
Captain Nick will clean, fillet, and bag you catch. He says kids within age are permitted on the trips, but please specify when booking to ensure the correct size of life vest is prepared in advance, or you can bring your own for children under 13.
A Note From Captain Nick...
I was born and raised in Galveston County. I have been fishing since I was 2 years old in the Galveston Bay Complex. As a teenager, I developed a passion for wade fishing. Fishing has been in my family for 4 generations and is being passed down to my son.
