Pathmaker Charters

Come join Pathmaker Charters on beautiful Lake Corpus Christi, located in Mathis, Texas. Captain Mark has been a fishing enthusiast his whole life and decided to make a career out of it. He specializes in bowfishing and gigging, which is mostly done during the night. So, if you’re looking for an unusual day (or night) on the water, there’s no better way to have it than taking a trip with this charter.

Captain Mark and his crew offer trophy Alligator Gar rod and reel fishing, Catfish jug, and Trout line fishing, as well as bowfishing and gigging. Bowfishing is available on Lake Corpus Christi and Choke Canyon. Flounder, Black Drum and Sheepshead bowfishing and gigging is done in Corpus Christi Bay.

You’ll be fishing on a 20’ Prodrive aluminum boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. The boat is specially rigged for night trips, having a special lightning system installed. She’s powered by twin 40 HP Prodive engines and features modern navigational electronics. There’s also a live bait tank and the boat is spacious enough to accommodate 2 wheelchair-bound anglers too.

The trips are family-friendly, so you can bring your kids along. The captain prepares everything you need for fishing equipment-wise, so you only need to bring your fishing license. Feel free to bring some snacks and drinks.

Get ready for some bowfishing action. Pathmaker Charters will do their best for you to have an unforgettable time on the water.
