Wade or Drift Fishing
Wading is one of the most rewarding styles of fishing the mid-coast. Getting waste deep in the water with the fish gives you an option to go one on one while you cool off in the summer heat.(read more)
Jetty or Inshore Big Game Fishing
“This aint bay fishing, this is INSHORE BIG GAME FISHING.” Gary Chambers, said that on our first fishing trip together. Gary’s partner for the day, Rick, had just spent 30-minutes besting an estimated 150 lb bull shark and stood there panting and sweating after the mighty struggle…it doesn’t get much better than that.

Megalops Atlanticus, the silver king known to many as the ultimate inshore gamefish… six feet of chrome clearing their complete body length from the water, while twisting and turning in mid-air. Blistering runs turn lesser tackle into piles of junk, bowing to the king to keep from parting the line, as well as the jumps and runs are what tarpon fishing is all about. (read more)
Wade or Drift Fishing
Wading is one of the most rewarding styles of fishing the mid-coast. Getting waste deep in the water with the fish gives you an option to go one on one while you cool off in the summer heat. Quality rods, reels and lures will be included. All you need to supply are your wading boots, wading gear and waders depending on the water temperature, and feel free to bring your personal tackle. If wading does not appeal to your party, we can drift or anchor the backlakes, reefs, sloughs and flats surrounding Port O’Connor. Casting soft plastic lures or shrimp under a popping cork are preferred methods on a drift. When anchored, live finfish are very effective freelined or fished on the bottom.Redfish and trout are the primary targets, but occasionally we will catch good-eating black drum, sheepshead and flounder. Fish cleaning and bagging included at the end of the trip.
****Live bait is available at an additional charge dockside*****

Jetty or Inshore BIG Game Fishing
JETTY TRIPS are a hoot, you never know what you might hook next. We could be drifting the channel with bait or deep jigging to catch big bull reds, jacks or kings. Anchored near the rocks fishing live shrimp or finfish for eating-sized redfish, black drum, sheepshead and speckled trout or trolling the current change at the ends of the rocks for kings, shark and jacks. Rods/reels, terminal tackle, lures, dead finfish and fish cleaning are provided.
I.B.G. TRIPS are usually catch-and-release fishing that targets large fish. We fish the jetties, Pass Cavallo and deep channels/sandbars in the open bays. Bull reds 15-40 lbs., Jack Crevalle 10-30 lbs., Tarpon 40-150 lbs., Stingrays up to 150 lbs., and Sharks 40-150 lbs. regularly stretch the lines. The sharks caught on these trips (blacktip, spinner, bull, sandbar and lemon) are tagged for research and released in good health. Eating-size sharks less than 60 lbs. can be retained when requested, ask for details.
Rods/reels, terminal tackle, lures and dead finfish are provided. Please note that time during the trip may be needed to catch fresh bait (local bait houses do not supply large live mullet or fresh dead ladyfish.)
· 8-hours, 1-3 persons $550
· $50 charge per additional person
SPRING/FALL TRIPS (late February through March) targeting large Black Drum to 60 lbs. are very popular as well as (September through mid-October) targeting Bull Reds up to 40 lbs. Additional eating sized fish like trout, redfish, black drum and sheepshead are normally caught while fishing for the big ones. These trips are especially attractive to families due to the style of fishing, there is rarely a dull moment and very large fish are the norm instead of the exception. Book in advance for SPRING BREAK!
Rods/reels, terminal tackle, dead bait/live crabs and fish cleaning are provided. Live shrimp is available dockside at an addtional charge.

Tarpon/Nearshore Gulf Fishing
Megalops Atlanticus, the silver king known to many as the ultimate inshore gamefish … 6 feet of chrome clearing their complete body length from the water, while twisting and turning in mid-air. Blistering runs turn lesser tackle into piles of junk, bowing to the king to keep from parting the line, as well as the jumps and runs are what tarpon fishing is all about.
TARPON can be fished in many different ways and areas. Small tarpon can be fished at the jetties on certain tides, with larger fish targeted in the open bay and offshore out to several miles. Some of the largest concentrations are found offshore of the Gulf beach. This style of fishing involves trolling lures, drifting natural bait, or sight-casting lures in and around roving schools. Tarpon can be fished in the bay and close offshore as weather permits.
Nearshore Gulf Fishing involves targeting multiple species of fish like Shark, Jack Crevalle, Bull Reds, King/Spanish Mackerel , Tripletail and Cobia (Ling) are common catches. For the fly fisherman, the open casting deck on the bow makes a stable elevated platform. With advanced preparation, we can practice chumming live or dead baitfish to bring multiple species up close for intense sight casting opportunities.
Offshore Fishing Texas State Waters involves fishing reefs, color changes and oilfield production platforms in the pursuit of King Mackeral, Spanish Mackeral, Tripletail, Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Shark, Cobia (Ling) and Little Tunny (Bonito) all depending on water conditions and season.
