“Fishing with Captain Chad was the best part of our vacation. I took my daughter and son out for a day on the Galveston Bay and we caught redfish and trout. The memories will last a life time. I highly recommend Vitamin Sea Fishing Charters! – Dave G.”

Fishing Reports

Spring Is In The Air!

It’s that time of year where the temperatures are warming up and the fish are moving in.  With each passing day, the fishing is getting better and better in Galveston Bay.  We are looking for redfish in shallow and finding them when they are mudding.  When they stick their head down in the mud looking for food it is a sure sign they are in the area and my anglers are catching multiple fish.  The incoming tides have been best, however we are finding them on the outgoing tides at the edges as well.

These past couple weeks, I had had some awesome clients including several from out of state that made Galveston their choice for spring break vacation.  A few of my junior anglers caught some awesome flounder, trout and redfish.  It is always my passion to put junior anglers on there first and personal best catch.

As we get deep into the spring and approach summer, I’ll be looking for more fish in my honey holes to fill in and give my anglers some great action on live bait and lures.  I do have openings here in April and I’m booking out May and June so please give me a call to schedule your Galveston Fishing Adventure today.

Tight Lines,
Captain Chad

    “Capt. Chad took our family out today for a fun day of fishing.  Capt. Chad suggested we hit the jetties and boy did we have a blast!  We caught trout, redfish, and a fish called a sheep’s head, I think?? My son even caught a small shark!  Capt. Chad was very polite and above all he was very helpful & patient with our family.  Vitamin Sea Charters is TOP NOTCH!  He even provided drinks for us to enjoy on the trip.  Thanks again Capt. Chad.”

    I had the opportunity to fish with Captain Chad and let me just say what a pleasure it was. I brought my two sons with me and we had a blast catching big redfish. Captain Chad knows the waters of East Galveston like no other captain and his hospitality is unmatched. I highly recommend everyone experience fishing with a guide whether you are looking for a day out with your family or to improve you fishing skills. I had asked the captain a lot of questions and he was happy to answer them and I left knowing several new tactics to use in my home waters one day when I buy my own boat and can take my children out with me.
