Oilfield Outkasts invites anglers of all ages and skill levels to join them for a thrilling adventure on the Texas waters. Specializing in nearshore and reef fishing, this charter will put you on the most exciting species around. Whether you’re after a day of relaxation or chasing your next trophy, this is the charter to do it with!

Brand new in 2019, "Standby", their Twin Vee 260 is ready to take you on a wild ride! This 26’ catamaran is powered with twin Suzuki 150s. She is equipped with Garmin sonar, navigation, and radar. Capable of over 50 mph she will get you to the fish in no time.

And with her catamaran hull, she is not only stable but roomy as well! Groups of up to 6 anglers will be able to fish together comfortably and explore the rich hotspots in the surrounding state waters targeting a variety of species. Shark, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Snapper, and more – you decide!

Everything you need to fish will be provided including top-notch rods, reels, and tackle. Depending on your target of choice you’ll also be provided with appropriate lures or live bait, all included in the price. At the conclusion of your trip, the crew will even clean and fillet your catch at no extra cost.

All you need to get is a valid fishing license, pack some drinks and snacks, and you’ll be good to go. Also, please keep in mind that this boat does not fish for Federal Red Snapper during June and July. For this, please check out the captain’s listings for "Killing Time" and "Hitch Life" boats.

Come aboard one of the charter’s newest in the fleet and make your memories while on "Standby"!

Member since May 2016
I was laid off in May 2016 from the oilfield and at the same time, my son was also diagnosed with cancer. I immediately had to find an alternative resource for my family to survive. I've had "Revelry" (my 27' Catamaran) since 2012 and figured that I must sell her to make ends meet until I found another job. My wife told me that I should put the boat to work with my love of fishing. I had met Captain Scott at a networking mixer in the Woodlands while we both still worked in the oilfield. He had his captain's license so we talked about chartering the boat, although, at the time I didn’t really care much for the idea because I didn't want to lose my love of fishing. However, it didn't take long after my wife convinced me to get to work. In the first 5 months of 2016, we fished with over 1,000 customers. We now have 6 boats in the fleet!! I am a USCG and state of Texas licensed guide, a certified Weighmaster (IGFA/state record certification), and Texas Director of Saltwater Tournaments.
