Head out to Aransas Pass, Texas and let Barefoot Charters take you on a breathtaking fishing adventure. Captain Timothy Cleghorn is a lifelong fisherman who will take you fishing inshore, nearshore, and flats, and do his best to make your trip memorable.

Your journey will begin on a new 23’ Mowdy flats boat powered by a 200 Suzuki engine. There’s enough space for up to 4 anglers. The boat’s adapted so that the guests in wheelchairs can come aboard as well, so they shouldn’t let their health situation discourage them from joining. The boat’s equipped with GPS and fishfinder systems, and a livewell.

Captain Timothy uses light tackle and specializes in spinning. He’ll take you to the best spots in the area for chasing Redfish, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. You can choose whether you’ll keep your catch or release it back into the water.

You’ll have all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures waiting for you on the boat. At the end of your trip, the captain will clean and fillet your catch, so you can easily prepare some delicious meals. He’ll also provide you with fishing licenses and drinks, so you should only pack some food or snacks before you depart.

Come to Aransas Pass and enjoy a day of fishing the friendly waters of Texas.
