Capt. Cornmeal Charters

Captain Eric “Cornmeal” Ellison works hard to make sure his clients get the best fishing experience they’ve ever had. He has a lifetime of experience in fishing southwest Louisiana and the waterways of southeast Texas.

Head down to Orange, Texas, to join his Capt. Cornmeal Charters for a fun-filled adventure. Explore the waters of Sabine Lake, Sam Rayburn, or Toledo Bend. Learn a new technique or two, master your cast, break your own records or get your weekly dinners sorted out.

Your potential catch will consist of anything that is in season and biting, including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Black Bass. Whether you are looking to catch that lunker Bass on T-Bend of Big Sam or fill the cooler with Specks, “Doormats,” and Reds on Sabine Lake, there is a trip for you.

Your drag will get pulled and your lines will be tight on board Capt. Cornmeal’s 22’ boat. It has enough fishing space for up to 4 anglers and is outfitted with modern electronics and tackle to make a great catch possible. All rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait will be available for you to use.

Your lunch and drinks are always welcome on board. Don’t forget to obtain a valid Texas fishing license before the trip!
