After boarding Fishin Addiction Charters’ 27-foot Boston Whaler, fisherfolk take a half-day excursion through the shallow jetties surrounding Galveston. Groups of four or six hunters hook all manner of gilled creatures, from spanish mackerel to saltwater trout to the occasional shark mistaking the line as dental floss. While almost a dozen species frequent the waters, the fish most likely to bite vary seasonally, and a brief consultation with one of the two charter captains when scheduling can help ensure that tour dates line up with preferred catches.<p>
Fishin Addiction Charters
Captain Dan Green began Fishin Addiction Charters to share his passion and knowledge of the picturesque shoreline and bounteous sea meats of Galveston's waters. Recently joined by deckhand-turned-captain Shane Cantrell, the duo voyages to all crannies and depths that the local seas have to offer, seeking more than a dozen species while specifically targeting tuna, sharks, and the ever-elusive holy mackerel. In their ocean-bound quests, the captains employ four boats that sport names such as The Fountain or The Whaler. Tours last anywhere from four hours to a full day and venture out one to as many as 60 miles from dry land, but are seldom more than 10 miles from the nearest underwater taco stand.
