We came down from Chicago to visit family and chose Angler Charters based on the other reviews. Best excursion of the week! We have children ages 6, 8 and 10 and they loved the trip. Captain Eddie and First Mate Caroline took great care of us and made the kids super comfortable with catching fish. Other boats out there do not have weather protection in case it rains (it did) and their boat does. We caught Red Drum, Black Drum and Catfish. The Red Drum and Catfish were made a great dinner that evening! It is important to know exactly what licenses and tags you need. I would triple check wherever you buy them at that you have the correct ones. If we head down to Houston again, we are going to do this excursion.

Awesome trip from start to finish. My wife and I and two of our sons went on the afternoon half day bay fishing trip. We limited out on Sheepshead early in the afternoon, so Caroline suggested that we might enjoy catching Drum. Each of our sons caught a 35-40 pound drum... The perfect ending to a wonderful trip. The boat is very nice, clean and is much larger than the other charters that we saw out fishing that day. HIGHLY recommend them for a GREAT fishing trip!

This was our first ocean fishing trip. Caroline was amazing, working with my two grandchildren, 10&13. They were thrilled with the fish, catching their limit of sheep head, and each catching a 30 pound black drum! Highly recommend.

Great trip! Very familiar with great fishing locations. Caroline is an awesome deckhand. She is quick and very helpful with the kiddos! Caroline knows her business! Captain Eddie is very knowledgeable and right on point when it comes to making sure you are having the best fishing experience ever. I highly recommend Angler Charters if you are wanting to have a great experience. Can’t wait for our next trip!

Had a great time from start to finish! Captain Eddie had kolaches waiting for us before we left then he and his deckhand Caroline worked hard all day to make this a fantastic experience. Captain Eddie really knows his stuff. When the drum weren't biting in the morning, he moved us around to different spots and kept switching up tactics until we had success! My buddy and I both caught a couple nice red drum - kept one a piece then had a throw the rest back. We also caught several gafftopsail and a flounder. The boat also has a heated inside which was nice when things got a bit chilly. Captain Eddie and Caroline are so great and work hard to make sure this is a great experience. Recommend Angler Charters to anyone thinking of taking a trip out of Galveston!!!
