With more than 20 years of experience fishing out of Port Mansfield, Texas, Captain Bill Gregson invites you for an exciting day on the water. He owns and operates Spot On Fishing Charters, offering top-of-the-line equipment and a top-notch boat. He will work hard to give you a fun and enjoyable fishing experience.

Jump aboard his 25’ Shallow Sport saltwater fishing boat out on the water since 2016. It comes powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine and can take you to the best fisheries quickly and reliably. It can accommodate up to 4 anglers, though 3 is recommended for maximum comfort. Everything has its own place on the boat – from the best navigational and safety gear to a wireless trolling motor and a live bait tank. There’s plenty of room, and you won’t have to bring your own cooler.

Trout, Redfish, and Flounder are the main stars of every trip, but you can also try your hand at tackling some Red Snapper, Black Drum, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, and even Shark. Depending on the bite and your preferences, the captain can take you up to 10 miles from the coast.

The charter includes the use of the best gear by Shimano and G. Loomis, lures, and catch cleaning. If you’d like to bring your own gear, that’s even more preferable. The captain doesn’t usually use live bait, but if you want it, he can make it happen for an extra charge, depending on what you want to fish for. On the other hand, all kinds of artificial baits are Captain Bill’s specialty, and he’s happy to show you everything he knows.

Feel free to bring your personal goods like sunscreen, sunglasses, clothes, and whatever you plan to eat and drink. Spot On Fishing Charters will make sure you have everything else needed for a perfect day on the water!

I have been fishing all my life, from lakes and bays to offshore waters. But my passion is fishing the lower Laguna Madre, especially Port Mansfield – I have been fishing here for more than 25 years. After I've retired, I decided to dedicate myself to fishing completely, and that's how I became a full-time guide. Fishing combined with meeting new people is what I love the most about the job.
