There’s a lot you can do in Texas, but fishing is definitely in the top 3, and no one knows it better than Captain Chris Phillips of Sabine Outdoors! If you’re on the lookout for a productive day of fishing on Sabine Lake and surrounding waters, then Capt. Chris is the guide for you.

With almost 4 decades of fishing experience under his belt, you can bet that Chris knows a lot about all the best fish hideouts. Whether you’re after healthy-sized Cobia, an impressive number of Speckled Trout, or trophy Redfish, your guide will know exactly where to take you. Then it’s your time to come face to gills with your prey and reel it in.

Your fishing platform is 25’ Contender with a 300 HP Yamaha engine and more than enough room to sit up to 6 anglers. You’ll find quality fishing gear on board, and reliable navigational electronics will show you where to cast your line. The boat is well-suited for lake trips, as well as inshore and nearshore fishing.

Whatever you catch, Capt. Chris will clean and fillet it, so that you can enjoy it as soon as you come back from your exciting day on the water. It’s up to you to buy a valid fishing license before you meet up with the captain, and prepare some food and drinks, you’ll get snacky from all that reeling.

Kids will have a great time fishing with you and it’s best if they’re 4 and older, so that they can fully enjoy themselves. After that, all you have to do is have fun with Sabine Outdoors and catch some great fish!
