Lone Star Charters Tx

Lone Star Charters invites you to spend a day with Capt. Ron and explore the beautiful waters of the Lower Laguna Madre. Whether you have the itch to fish or just want to have fun with your fishing rod, you have found the right place.

Put all the daily routine aside and hop onboard a 22’ Shallow Sport bay boat. It was fully uphauled in 2017 and comes powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine. This is a seaworthy vessel with plenty of space for up to 4 anglers and an array of professional accessories and electronics.

Capt. Ron is not only a professional guide but is also an avid tournament angler. He has won trophies throughout the Texas Gulf region and never stops mastering his cast. Ron is a passionate fisherman who knows the area like the back of his hand.

Your day out with Lone Star Charters will see you drifting the shallow waters that can be up to 3’ deep. You will be fishing with both artificial and live bait, as well as trying anchored up fishing. The list of your potential catches will include Redfish, Seatrout, Black Drum, Flounder, and Sheepshead.

All trips come inclusive with rods, reels, lures, tackle, bait, and a complimentary fish cleaning service. You will also be provided with snacks and drinks. Licenses are not provided and need to be purchased before the trip.

As Capt. Ron says, “We don’t go fishing, we go catch fish.”

Lone Star Charters is sponsored by Budweiser - L & F Distributors. Captain Ron's love of fishing started when he was a young boy. Ronny spent the majority of his childhood exploring the waters of the Bay with bait and pole, guided by his parents. He then moved onto fishing competitive tournaments and then decided to make a career of it. Capt. Ron feels that doing what you love...you never work a day in your life!
