With The Wind Charters – Matagorda

Join With the Wind Charters and see what Texas inshore fishing is all about. With Captain Caleb by your side, there’s always something new to learn, whether you’re a seasoned angler or a beginner. Explore Matagorda and nearby bays with him, learn new tricks, enjoy nature, and catch some tasty fish on the way.
You’ll be fishing from a 22’ Nautic Star boat that accommodates up to 5 guests. There’s enough room for everyone to fish at the same time, so you don’t have to wait for your turn. This bay boat is perfect for shallow waters and features a 150 HP Evinrude engine, GPS, and a fishfinder. Kids of all ages are welcome and life vests for them are provided too. However, if they are less than 6 years old, please bring life vests for them.
You’ll mostly target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and occasional Sheepshead. Depending on the season and your preference, you can change your fishing techniques – from wading, drifting the flats with shrimp, to popping cork. You can keep the catch if you wish, and the captain will clean it for you free of charge.
Capt. Caleb will provide your fishing equipment and a cooler full of soft drinks. You can always bring beverages of your choice and don’t forget some snacks. You’ll need to purchase your fishing license in advance and, if you plan to go wading, prepare special clothes.
The goal of each and every trip is to enjoy and learn something out on the water. Join With the Wind Charters and get a day of relaxation you’ll never forget.
