Salty Reelz Inshore Fishing Charters

Salty Reelz Inshore Fishing Charters operates out of Matagorda, TX, as well as Port O’Connor and Seadrift. Captain Cory Traub specializes in chasing Speckled Trout and Redfish, with the possibility of a few Flounder in the mix as well. If you’re looking for some big fish and a ton of fun in the Matagorda area, Captain Cory is your guy!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 22’ 2016 model Blue Wave tunnel hull boat. This sturdy vessel gives a comfortable ride for up to 4 guests. She also allows you to get into the shallow flats of the San Antonio and Matagorda Bay Complex. The boat has a range of electronics to pinpoint the fish and a trolling motor to stalk silently through the skinny waters.

Explore the shallows on the hunt for Reds, Trout, Flounder, and more. When the weather is calm, you may even be able to head to the local reefs for delicious table fare like Red Snapper. Salty Reelz trips come with quality tackle to make sure you bring your fish in, whatever it is. Capt. Cory will also clean all your catch after the end of the trip, so don’t forget your cooler.

Your safety is the top priorities on every trip Capt. Cory runs. After this comes the fish! Capt. Cory will do everything in his power to put you on the fish and make sure you have a great time while you catch them. He looks forward to making you laugh and enjoy your day on the water. For him, this is what really makes fishing fun!

Please remember to tip your guide. :)

I was born and raised in south Louisiana and moved to Texas in 2005. I started fishing Port O'Connor and Matagorda and immediately fell in love with it. My main chase is Speckled Trout using artificial lures, croaker, or popping corks.
