Cowboy Charters- Parker

Cowboy Charters offers exceptional fishing adventures out of Freeport and into the Gulf of Mexico. They can take you on a real deep sea fishing adventure you will talk about forever! The crew is made up of full-time captains who provide a first class service.

They will take you on a 30-foot Parker center console, powered by two 225 HP Honda engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. This boat is fast, steady, and reliable. It will get you out and back in from the desired fishing grounds without wasting your time. So you can do what you came to do: fishing.

Captain Garret will take you out on your adventure, and you can choose from nearshore or offshore. If you stay closer to the shore, approximately 2-4 nautical miles, you can target Bull Reds, Black Drum, Tarpon, and Sharks. You can occasionally strike a King Mackerel if the weather conditions bring it in closer to the shore.

Cowboy Charter’s crew is conscious of the fuel burn and will work hard to put you on the fish of your choice.Your offshore adventure will take you out 20 to 50 miles into the deep blue waters in search of huge Red Snapper, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Sharks, Grouper, Amberjack, Wahoo, and Ling.

The fishing gear will be provided on all the trips, but if you really want to bring your own, you are welcome to. Just let your captain know so he can make room for your gear. The charter includes fish cleaning and filleting at the end of the trip.

Come and enjoy your day on the water on this magnificent fishing adventure. You will have a first class crew guiding you to the fish of your dreams, and teaching you all about the fish and the charter business!
