Oilfield Outkasts – Specials

You can’t go wrong with Oilfield Outkasts. This is a premier fishing charter service out of Freeport/Surfside, Texas that has gained an excellent reputation. The crew offers customizable trips that include two boats that go side by side for up to 6 anglers per boat.

Just take a look at the special offers and you will likely find the trip you are looking for. From chasing Tuna in deep waters to battling Red Snapper on a half-day adventure and checking the bite when you leave work – they can do it all.

Oilfield Outkasts never charges for fuel, bait, tackle, ice, or fish cleaning – it’s already included in the price of the trips. Their boats are 27’ catamarans; each comes powered by twin 200 HP Honda engines. The vessels are fully outfitted with everything you need for a comfortable and productive day out on the water. There are top-notch navigational and fishfinding electronics, top-notch tackle, and portable camp-style toilets.

The crew consists of knowledgeable captains that will not only help you catch fish but will also teach you about the underwater environment and everything these waters have to offer. You will only need to purchase a valid fishing license, pack your lunch and drinks, and show up!

Please note that a 20% tip for the hard work of the crew is customary.

Member since May 2016
I was laid off in May 2016 from the oilfield and at the same time, my son was also diagnosed with cancer. I immediately had to find an alternative resource for my family to survive. I had "Revelry" (my 27' Catamaran) since 2012, and figured that I must sell her to make ends meet until I found another job. My wife told me that I should put the boat to work with my love of fishing. I had met Captain Scott at a networking mixer in the Woodlands while we both still worked in the oilfield. He had his Captain's license so we talked about chartering the boat, although, at the time I didn’t really care much for the idea because I didn't want to lose my love of fishing. However, it didn't take long after my wife convinced me to get to work. The first 5 months of 2016 we fished over 1,000 customers. We have since added 4 more boats to our fleet. I am a USCG and Texas State licensed guide, a certified Weighmaster (IGFA and state record certification), and Texas Director of Saltwater Tournament.
