Days Off Outfitters offers fun guided bay fishing trips in Port O’Connor, Texas. Whether it’s fishing from the boat or wading, Captain Ricki Oliver will address your needs and make sure you have a great time on the water. Join in and let Days Off Outfitters give you your next memorable fishing adventure.

Your trip will start on a 23’ Shoalwater saltwater fishing boat that can accommodate up to 4 anglers. The boat’s engine is a 250 HP Suzuki with a maximum cruising speed of 54 knots and it will take you to the fish in no time. There’s quality GPS and fishfinder electronics that help locating your prey and that will keep you on the right track. The boat also features a livewell to provide you with live bait.

There are various inshore, nearshore, lake, reef, and flats spots you can explore. The species you’ll target include Spotted Seatrout, Black Drum, Redfish, Flounder, and even Hammerhead Shark. You’ll catch them by bottom fishing, spinning, popping, and drift fishing, using light and heavy tackle. The fish you catch is yours to keep, but you’re free to release it if you wish. Kids are welcome to join aboard.

Captain Ricki will provide all rods, reels, tackle, and lures, and will clean and fillet your catch as well. Just bring fishing licenses, food, and some drinks, and you’re set to go.

Join Days Off Outfitters and have a wonderful time on the waters of Port O’Connor!

Member since December 2020
Captain Ricki grew up with a fishing family who enjoyed sitting on the sidelines of the Jetty’s and soaking some cut bait. At the age of 17, he purchased his first boat. The addiction really took off then. He has spent 38 years of his life fishing in Port O' Connor, Texas. Now, Captain Ricki continues this passion with his family, friends, and customers. Days Off Outfitters fishes POC year-round, and takes full advantage of the fabulous duck season POC has to offer.
