Reelhard Fishin Charters

Come down to the Texas shore and join Reelhard Fishin Charters for a fishing adventure that will set the bar for all future fishing experiences! Captain Paul Pennington has spent 30 years exploring the local waters and now knows all the tricks and behaviors of the fish.

Come aboard his 30’ center console that is equipped for both nearshore and offshore expeditions. The boat can accommodate up to 6 guests and has everything you need for a productive day on the water – quality rods, reels, tackle, and navigational electronics.

If you’d like to spend more time on the water and go after the monsters of the deep, there are overnight trips on offer that will put you on the trail of monster Tuna, Sailfish, and Marlin. You can spend 24–36 hours on the water, going after your next trophy and enjoying superb fishing action.

On nearshore trips, there’s a wide array of species you can hook – Red Snapper, a variety of Sharks, Jack Crevalle, King Mackerel, Bull Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and more. Bluewater trips will put you on the bite of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Amberjack, as well as Snapper and Mackerel.

You will have a competent first mate to explain everything you need to know, and you can turn to him for any question you have. While everything fishing-related is provided on the boat, you should bring your fishing license with you, as well as snacks, drinks, and food.

Whether you’re just learning the ropes of fishing or you’re a seasoned angler, the expertise of Reelhard Fishin Charters will not disappoint. Your Texas fishing adventure begins today!
