If you’re in search of a rod-bending fishing trip with non-stop action, then you’ve come to the right place! Mike’s Offshore Charters caters to die-hard anglers looking to test their skills against some of the most productive waters of the country. Captain Mike Tatsch specializes in offshore, reef, and wreck fishing and invites anyone who’s ready for a “reel” challenge!

You’ll depart from Conn Brown Harbor in Aransas Pass, and head out into some of the most beautiful waters off the Gulf Coast of Texas. But don’t let the Gulf’s beauty distract you: these charters aren’t designed for lounging and sightseeing. This is a sportfishing trip built for those that are looking to land the biggest monster fish in the game.

Get ready to go deep sea fishing for Sailfish and Marlin, trolling for Mahi, Wahoo, and Kingfish, or bottom fishing for Snapper. You’ll target various Tuna species, including the prestigious Bluefin Tuna, and many other offshore pelagics.

The captain’s 33’ Tiara sportfisher is built for action, not relaxation. She’s powered by twin 315 HP Yanmar engines, has outriggers and downriggers for trolling, state-of-the-art navigational equipment, and a live bait tank. She accommodates up to 6 guests and has an enclosed head, perfect for long offshore trips.

Capt. Mike keeps top-notch Shimano gear on board, but he recommends you bring your own. As any true angler knows, there’s no better feeling than the rod and reel you’re most accustomed to! Live bait will be caught along the way or bought before the trip, and you’ll also have your catch cleaned and filleted so you can take it home for a delicious meal.

Capt. Mike is also happy for you to bring a beer or two on board, so you can crack open a cold one, kick back, and relax with him.

Join Mike’s Offshore Charters for an intense fishing trip, and the thrill of a lifetime. Just be sure to purchase a fishing license before your trip, bring some snacks and drinks, and get ready to create lasting memories!
