Tarpon Fishing in Galveston, Texas – What to Expect

With Tarpon fishing, not only do you have to know how to catch and handle them, you have to know where to go. Tarpon are not native to Galveston, rather they migrate from the Yucatan Peninsula every Spring and Summer through Tarpon Alley, a corridor that runs just offshore the entire perimeter of the Gulf of Mexico where some of the largest Tarpon in the continental U.S. pass through. A seasoned Tarpon guide, like Captain Boyd, has decades of experience with Tarpon Alley and knows just where to go to put you on the fish!

"I have been fishing with Capt. Lg Boyd for the last 10 years. The knowledge that he shares on every trip whether we are in the bay or chasing tarpon in the gulf is priceless. I would recommend him for anybody that wants to have fun or wants to learn more and step up their fishing game."

"Took my family, wife, daughter 10, son 7, to fish with LG Boyd, it was their first guided trip that was fun from start to finish. LG new my goal was for the wife and especially kids to have fun and catch some trout. He did just that, he put us on a good box of trout, he was great with my family and especially my kids, working hard at keeping their rods bent. Pics say it all with the huge smile and awesome memories. I would recommend his services to anyone in question. Thanks again LG Boyd"
