Tarpon Express

Fishing is based on a lot of factors such as location fished, time of year, air temperature, water temperature, tidal movement, water clarity, current, wind direction and velocity, all which affect fishing. For over four decades I have studied the movements and migrations patterns of Tarpon, Sharks, Kingfish, Trophy Speckled Trout, Redfish, Bull Redfish and Flounder. Thousands of hours spent exploring the waters around Galveston Island and keeping very detailed records have enable me to accumulate an unsurpassed inventory of great fishing spots I call "PAITITI SPOTS." I guarantee to have you in the right place at the right time to try your luck with these great fish. The rest is up to you as the fishermen doing the fishing and the person who controls the weather, which incidentally is not your fishing guide. With that said, here are a few feedbacks from some of our fishermen, fisherwomen, fishing families and best of all, fishing kids.
- Captain Mike Williams, 2013 fishing season

I chartered Captain Williams' boat for a 3 day offshore shark safari adventure for my whole family, which included my wife Peg and my two daughters Meg and Sherry. I really didn't know what to expect, never have been on a shark trip before.. .On the first day we left the marina just before the sun came up and by 8 AM my whole family was catching sharks and big King Mackerel. I think the first day my family and I caught over 40 sharks from about 40 pounds to well over 150 pounds. The second day was almost a carbon copy of the first, but now my family knew what to expect. .Captain Mike reminded me more of fishing with my, father, grandfather or brother than a charter boat captain. He baited the hooks for us, and all we had to was reel those big sharks in. ..On third day it was the same song third verse and my daughter Meg caught this really big King Mackerel which we photographed and released. By noon on the third day, we were toast, and literally worn out from catching fish and left the fishing area with the fish still biting. ..The 3 day adventure ended and my family has caught and released more than a 100 sharks. and some of the biggest King Mackerel I personally have ever seen. - The Walace Graham Family, Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Captain Mike, When the teachers at school ask what I did over summer vacation I will have a great fish story to tell!
