Slice Of Life Fishing Guide

It’s time to book a trip with Slice of Life Fishing Charters. Head down to Texas to fish the awesome Matagorda Bay. You’ll spend the day with Captain Francis, who has been fishing his whole life. It’s no wonder that he bought a boat and began chartering trips as soon as he returned to Texas!

Step on board your captain’s 19’ center console, with plenty of room for 4 guests to fish at the same time without crossing lines. The boat has a range of safety and navigational features so you can fish with peace of mind on board.

Fish that you can expect to target include Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Spotted Seatrout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and more. The captain will get you to to the hottest fishing grounds in no time, hitting up to 4 spots in one trip.

Children over 11 are welcome on board and will have life vests provided for them. You don’t need years of fishing experience to have a great time fishing with Capt. Francis.

You’re welcome to bring along your own food and drink for the trip. Let the captain know prior to the day if he should bring a spare cooler for your provisions to go into. Please note, alcohol is not permitted.

Included in the price of the trip are top-quality rods and reels that won’t let you down when reeling in your trophy catch. The captain will also provide the live bait for the trip.

You must buy a fishing license before the trip begins. It’s a good idea to bring sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, too.

Join Slice of Life Fishing Charters today for a fun-filled trip the whole family will enjoy!

Well, I have always been on a boat, I've been fishing since I was a little boy, bringing fish for the whole family – my mom was a great chef and she would cook everything I caught, including Crayfish, Crab, Lobster, and Flounder. I caught so many I even started selling them to a local restaurant! As I grew up, I became a chef in the Caribbean where I worked on a charter sailboat for the Stardust Company in St Marteen. again, I was in my element. When I came to Texas I looked for a boat right away.
