About Our Captains

Galveston Fishing Charters Captains are some of the most experienced captains on the water.  Our captains tune into the different fishing levels of each group we take out on the water and customize the trip based on that experience so each group has the best time possible.  Our captains are always eager to teach new anglers the joy of fishing and try to challenge veteran anglers in hopes of increasing their enjoyment and knowledge of fishing in the Galveston Bay of the great state of Texas and beyond.

Capt Steve - full time fishing charter in Galveston and Port O Connor

Captain Steve Brown


Capt. Stephen Brown grew up near the Texas Coast where he developed a love for fishing. He started his career as a part time guide over 20 years ago while also working a full time job. This gave him a firm foundation for the passion that he now has for all types of fishing.  Stephen spent most of his summers growing up fishing not only Galveston Bay system but also the bays of Port O Connor. After a few years of part time guiding Capt. Steve went full time fishing the Galveston and POC bays. Connect with Capt. Steve on social media to get to know more about him and his chartered fishing style or reach out and contact GFC for more information on a fishing charter.
