Goin Deep Fishing has been offering amazing fishing trips from Port Aransas for a long time! Captain Bubba and his crew have well over 30 years of fishing experience. Capt. Bubba has previously held titles for record fish caught in Texas. This time, they are taking you on an adventure with an even better fishing machine.

Fish with the crew aboard a 46’ Bertram Sportfisher! This beauty has just been remodeled inside and out! Big B has a large salon, galley, 2 staterooms, 2 heads, and of course an ice-cold A/C to cool down in the hot summer days! The vessel is equipped with outriggers and downriggers as well as top-notch rods, reels, tackle, and live bait!

The crew provides water, Gatorade, snacks, and a sack lunch on all trips. They also provide fish cleaning, filleting, and vacuum packing. They will even put your freshly packed fish in an iced-down cooler bag for you to take back home! That’s something you’ll rarely find on other charters.

Safety is the main concern on each trip. All captains hold US Coast Guard master licenses and are first aid and CPR certified. All the vessels in their fleet are insured, state and/or federally permitted, and yacht certified. Each vessel is also equipped with life jackets for all ages.

First-time fishermen to experienced anglers of all ages are welcome! Going Deep Fishing is not interested in catching a ton of “just keepers.” They desire to get you the fish of a lifetime while having fun doing so!

I have been crazy about fishing, mainly offshore fishing since I was very very young. I knew when I caught my first Red Snapper that I was hooked! I have spent a lifetime fishing as much as life would allow me to do. I am now able to spend all my days fishing. My favorite part of fishing now is watching the excitement on the faces of people when they get that hookup!
