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, 2010 fishing season





Some of my buddies and I booked a shark fishing with Captain Mike Williams of Tarpon Express. Captain Mike told us we were fishing over a wreck of a aircraft. We caught, big Reds. Jack Fish, Kingfish and Ling, but for my buddies and I, the most fun was the big Black Tip Sharks. The fish were biting when we got to that wreck and they were still hitting when we left, totally worn out. - Larry Davis, Dallas Texas


My grandson and I had a great day off Galveston Island catching the biggest shark my grandson has ever caught. Captain Mike Williams had us on some huge sharks early, but more important, what impressed me the most was how Capt. Mike helped my grandson with his first big shark. Capt.Mike, thanks for the memory and guiding us to a fishing trip we will never forget. - Jamie Recker, Houston, Texas


As policemen we try to stay in shape, but Capt. Mike Williams had us huffin' and puffin' on some really big sharks. It's rare when four buddies can get together and have so much fun fishing and literally catch fish all day long. We all four agreed, without any doubt, for us it was a fishing trip of a lifetime and we will be back. - Jeff Gore, Nathan Baker, B. J. Wooldridge, Jason Smite - Greenville, Texas Policemen.


I can't remember when we had so much fun fishing as a family. I speak for my boys, wife and I, when I SAY the day we spent fishing with Capt. Mike Williams for shark will be an outdoor adventure we will never forget. I was a little hesitant at first to take my family shark fishing, but once on the water, you could just tell it was not Capt. Mike's first rodeo. The man is perhaps one of the best captains I've ever been with when it comes to helping and handling young boys with big sharks... thanks again Capt. Mike, we will be back - David Rosales, Dallas Texas


We went fishing with Capt. Mike Williams of Tarpon Express and caught some really big fish. My son "DAN THE MAN" caught the biggest and the most. - Daniel Virson, Palestine, Texas


Awesome fishing trip, Capt. Mike Williams of Tarpon Express has us in big fish all day long, only time we didn't catch fish was when we stopped to eat lunch and rest after catching a big hammerhead shark. - Dr. Stephen Medine, Catoosa, Oklahoma


My friends and I had a great day fishing just offshore Galveston with Capt. Mike Williams. We caught a lot of Kings, all released, plus some really big sharks. We could see the fish swimming just above a wreck not too far from my beach house at Rollover Pass. - Sherry Barnes, Houston, Texas


All I can say is, if you want to catch some really big sharks, Capt. Mike Williams is your man. The fight of a big shark is awesome. - Ed Bishope, Dallas Texas


I took my wife Brook and my three daughters Mason, Jo Ann and Re Ann out for a day of Black Tip shark fishing with Capt. Mike Williams of Tarpon Express. Capt. Mike was really great with kids and we caught tons of sharks all day long to well over seven feet long. We all had a great time and cannot wait to back out there. - David Rosalez, Amarillo, Texas


First, I want say thanks to Capt. Mike Williams of Tarpon Express for one of the most rewarding fishing experiences I have ever had. Not sure if that's common, but for myself and my fiancée Linda we had so much fun catching redfish after redfish. I think the total for the day was 30 plus redfish for her and I.. For us, it was a trip of a lifetime. Thanks again for a great Galveston charter and we will be back soon. - Loc Dao and Linda Nguyen, Dallas, Texas


This trip with Capt. Mike Williams of Tarpon Express was by far the funnest fishing trips we have ever been on. It was non-stop action from the minute we started fishing, until it was time to head in. Thanks Capt. Mike for a great time and we will see you again next year. - Michael Van Sant -Sherman, Texas
