The boat you’ll be using is a 25’ World Cat center console powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki outboards. The boat uses full-featured navigation electronics, can sit up to 3 guests, and is wheelchair accessible. Its fishing gear includes outriggers and a livewell.
There are multiple species you can target depending on the trip length and how far you’ll go out into the Gulf of Mexico. You can encounter Kingfish, Wahoo, Shark, Mahi, Black Drum, and many more. Kids are welcome to join the trip, just make sure they have their life jackets on if they are under 13 years old. You can choose if you’ll keep or release your catch.
If you’d like to stay closer to shore and fish the bay instead, visit Capt. Kevin’s profile below to find his bay listing.
Each trip includes rods, reels, and any tackle needed. The captain will also clean your catch at the end of the trip and provide bottled water at your request. You’ll want to bring snacks and drinks in a small cooler, sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, preferably polarized. You’ll also need a Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp. One-day licenses can be purchased at local Walmarts and tackle stores.
