Mike’s Fishing Services invites you to spend a day on the waters of Galveston, Texas with Captain Mike Cacciotti. Being a native to the area and having fished these waters his whole life, Mike is able to provide an exciting experience for his guests. He is a professional who welcomes families, beginners, and experienced anglers aboard.

Good quality light tackle bait cast and spin cast rods are used to target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Gulf Trout, Sheepshead, and a variety of Sharks. Captain Mike prefers light tackle fishing technique as it guarantees fun and excitement, and also means you have to really fight the fish for an unforgettable fishing experience.

Captain Mike will take you fishing aboard his 24’ Kenner Center console, originally built in 1998 and restored in 2017. Powered by a 250 HP Honda engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, it is very fast. The vessel features a GPS and a fishfinder used to locate the best fishing spots, a livewell to hold the bait, life vests for safety, and a CPR-trained captain.

Mike’s Fishing Services includes rods, reels, tackle, and live bait on all trips. They also clean and fillet your catch so make sure you bring a cooler in which you’ll transport your catch home. You are advised to bring weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and of course, a camera. You will want to capture all the glorious moments on the water!

With his knowledge and years of experience fishing the Galveston Bay Complex and the Sabine Lake Complex, Captain Mike is sure to give you a truly memorable experience!

Captain Mike started fishing at the tender age of six, going out with his dad and learning how to cast for and hook his first fish. Years later, while Mike worked at the oil refinery, he was also guiding part time on the weekends. Once he had retired, he took to guiding full time. Mike has over 20 years of guiding experience on the Gulf Coast.
