Rod Bending Charters offers an exciting range of fishing charters along the waters of Galveston Bay, TX. Inshore trips run all year round on one of the most productive bodies of water near the Gulf. Captain Jason Woods has been fishing the Gulf since he was a child and has turned his hobby into a trade on the very same waters. Remembering the thrill of his childhood, he’s passionate about helping first-time anglers and children make their first catch.

Head out on a 24’ Tidewater center console, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. Propelling you to speeds of 40 knots, you’ll reach the hottest fishing spots in no time. The boat is equipped with a GPS, fishfinder, VHF, sonar, and includes a live bait tank to get the most out of each fishing trip. Sun junkies can utilize most areas of the boat, catching the rays while casting, while the T-top protecting the center console ensures that you have room to cool off.

You’ll be provided with high-quality Shimano and Avet reels, and Ugly Stik rods. To make your catch, you’ll exploit a range of fishing techniques, such as jigging, popping, and bottom fishing, and Capt. Jason and his crew will be more than happy to lend a helping hand. Half and full day trips will have you targeting big Reds, Trout, Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Sharks, amongst others, but you can also target Sharks on more specialized trips.

Rod Bending Charters love to have families on their trips, so bring the kids for a fun day on the water. They do their best to put you on the fish, and ensure you have a great time out on the water. If you are successful, you’ll even be able to take your catch home with you, cleaned and prepared for you to warm up. No matter if you are new to fishing or a seasoned angler, the crew looks forward to welcoming you aboard.

I started fishing the Gulf as a kid, and turned my passion into a job that I love. I have now been in this business for 15 years, and take great pride in providing once-in-a-lifetime fishing experiences for all of my customers. I really enjoy teaching young anglers and watching kids have a great time catching fish.
