In a word, Greg is fantastic. We were scheduled for a shark-fishing tour with another Captain, only to have it cancelled at the last minute. The other company also failed to offer any assitance in trying to accommodate us while vacationing in Galveston. My boys were so disappointed! I started researching other Captains, and came across Greg's site. I was impressed with the feedback that he enjoyed introducing kids to fishing, and worked well with families. I called him, and AMAZINGLY, he actually answered the phone himself! He offered us a Galveston Fishing tour time immediately, and that fit with our scheduled time in Galveston. When we met Greg at the docks, it was clear his relaxed, warm, informal demeanor would be a great fit for our family. He was clearly expert in Gulf fishing, answering all our questions...and it is clear he loves what he does!! We enjoyed the day very much, and landed a number of sharks, despite the stormy, rocky seas...I am thankful we were able to enjoy this experience with Greg, and we will definitely return to try our luck again!!  -Happy Customer!

 

We have triplet 14 year old boys who have never fished before. Greg did a fantastic job of putting us on the fish and patiently showing the boys how to fish. I purposely chose Greg because I had read the other favorable family reviews that were posted of him and he has two kids a little younger than mine. Greg helped with casting and baiting and untangling lines as well as netting the fish and using his "fish holder" since mine can barely hold a basketball much less a fish. The fishing spots were not far away and Greg positioned us so that no-one became sea sick. The boys caught a 34" Redfish, SkipJack, Perch, Saltwater Catfish, Croker, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and to many speckled and sand trout to count. The boat was like it was brand new and the motors never gave one seconds issue. I cannot recommend Greg and Fishing Galveston enough! If you are looking for a great fishing charter especially for novices this is the place.  -Sherrill Family

 

Greg was great! I brought my 3 boys, ages 12, 13, &14, to enjoy some coastal fishing in Texas. Greg suggested we go out on a bayou/marsh trip since the winds were high. My father, who has been fishing the Texas coast lines for over forty years, was also with us. He said he had no idea we would land any of the fish we caught that day. Plus Greg worked with the boys and made them all feel like seasoned fishermen. Thanks Greg for a great time with my boys and father. Truly a great guide, captain, and person! We had a great trip!  -Christian Bland

 

Greg, thank you for helping my son realize his dream of flounder giggin. My exchange student from Ecuador will forever remember his first fishing experience here in the states!!! Looking forward to our next trip.  -The Lopez Family

 

 

My 11 year old son, Benny, and I were in town visiting from MI & fortunate enough to squeeze into Greg's schedule on Thursday afternoon, April 12th. (Thanks so much Greg for helping me build some more great memories with Benny!) The tide was all but absent which normally means not-so-great fishing - hardly the case with Greg! We had a great time with fantastic action slamming Speckled Trout, Redfish, Drum & Flounder. Greg's lifetime of experience fishing the area truly paid off! Greg's a real people person and he was absolutely fantastic with Benny; it was obvious how much Greg enjoys kids! We will definitely be back!  -Mara's Father & Son Outing


  

My father, daughter, and I had a great fishing trip with Greg. Despite challenging weather conditions, he knew the right spots to find the fish and everyone caught fish and had fun. He took care of the details and worked throughout the trip to make it memorable and enjoyable. I highly recommend Greg to anyone looking for a great guide and a great day of fishing. We look forward to our next trip with Greg.  -Tim Morris and Family

  

Greg - you and your crew did an excellent job handling 3 adults and 5 kids on Saturday. We found it relaxing and entertaining hitting all the hot fishing spots in the Bay. You and your team are really good with the kids. Plus we caught a ton of fish! Keep up the good work!  -Dusty Alexander, Alexander/Keeney Family

 

Can't say enough good things about Capt. Greg. Wow, what a trip our family had with one of the best, friendliest, knowledgeable, patiencent, and all around fun guide. I've fished alot in my life time, but the couple of trips I went out with Greg were trips that dreams are made of. He was very patiencent with my son, while he was hooked up on a very lage Dorado, and coached him the whole time. If you want to get what you pay for, this is your man. Full limits for everyone, and just an all around great experiance. Hope to do it again soon Greg. Till next time, tight lines and smooth water.  -Tyra Family

 

We always have an amazing time with Captain Greg ! We have used many fishing charters before we went with this one, but will no longer have to look. I have taken customers, my family and friends on trips and have always been extremely pleased with the service, attitude and awesome catches! One of the biggest differences I found with him is his patience and kindness to children. My children love to go fishing with Capt. Greg! They like that he treats them nice and doesnt get upset if they lose a fish or snag a line. He has taught us all a lot about fishing. After going out with him, you will feel like you've known him for years. I highly recommend giving him a call if you want to have an awesome time! Great guide for entertaining customers, investors, friends and family. I have done all, and I have never had a bad trip! FISH ON!!!!!!  -Johnny Ocampo
