  • Best fishing trip!!!

    Created Glenn L

    Had a great experience with Captain Chad, even though it rained and water was rough Captain Chad keep us on the fish all day!! Made memories with my boys we will never forget.

  • Will return

    Created Bruce H

    Been multiple times and always have a blast!! Great boats and captains and Melody in the office is a gem

  • Captain Dave

    Created Gerald S

    We went in the middle of February( not peak fishing time), captain Dave was excellent. We caught red snapper, red drum, and sheepshead and nice ones.Thanks Dave and Get Hooked Charters. Hope to do it again soon.

  • Best day of fishing ever!

    Created Ginger S

    Highly recommend Get Hooked Fishing Charters! Captain Dave and his deckhand Spike put us on every single fish that we requested to try and catch. I caught my shark, then we moved on to catch our limit of Red Snapper and Red Drum, and even managed to catch a Cobia. Capt. Dave knew where to go, and we all felt very safe in his boat. They kept our lines baited, we never had to wait...just kept slinging fish on board with almost every cast. We can't wait to do it again!

  • Perfect Buisness Reward Outing

    Created Sam B

    We had a group of 7 so we went out on 2 seperate boats. We were met at the docks by all the captains and we quickly split up between the two boats. Both Captain Dave and Captain Aaron asked us what we were after and within minutes of reaching the first spot we had huge Reds on both boats. We then went after sharks and both boats were just as successful, catching multiple sharks on each. We had a few first timers in our group and both Captains went out of their way to make them feel like seasoned pros. The trip was a huge success and everyone in our party was extremely happy with how the day went. Thanks to Captain Dave, Captain Aaron, and Get Hooked Fishing Charter for making this outing a memorable one. We will definitely be back!!!

  • We had the time of our lives!!

    Created Brandon G

    From booking our trip until the conclusion of our outing the staff went above in beyond to ensure that my family had a truly enjoyable experience. Captain Matt completely met and exceeded our expectations. This was truly a memorable trip! I can say now that the couple of negative reviews were written by truly delusional patrons. Within minutes of the first line hitting the water, I had snagged my first shark ever! Within the first hour my wife had caught her first! Captain Matt was extremely kind, professional and extremely helpful. My 9 year old can be a bit hard to please, but he was ready to schedule our next outing before we even made it out of the parking lot at the end of the day. My son described it as being super-duper fun! Thank you Captain Matt and Get Hooked Fishing Charters for providing my family with a time of our lives!!

  • Lots of fun!

    Created Kimberly B

    Aaron was our captain, and he was great - worked really well with our kids (ages 13 and 11). We did a half-day jetty trip; not a ton of fish, but as fishermen, we suck. Still a great day out. PLEASE NOTE, however, the balance due upon was arrival had to be paid in cash; I didn't catch that until the morning of our trip - you would be surprised how difficult it is to find a working ATM in Galveston. It is in the contract, however, so my bad for not catching it.

  • Close offshore fishing trip

    Created Robert T

    We left early on Thursday around five and was fishing right as the sun came up. Hooked up to an oil rig and caught several shark and catfish. After a few hours there we followed several shrimping boats but had no luck (just part of fishing ) captain Matt tried several spots and even called other captains to see if they were having any luck. We still went home with plenty of meat and we had a great time. We will return in the future!
