Clear Lake Fishing Charters Capt Allen

Come experience your fishing adventure on beautiful Clear Lake and Galveston bay with Captain Allen. His mission is to safely maximize your time on the water and put as many fish in the boat as we can. Come relax, enjoy the water, and make lasting memories with your family and friends on his beautiful 23.5 foot, twin-engine center console fishing boat. 

Come aboard, all skill levels are welcome.  Seasoned anglers will be set up with gear and bait while less experienced anglers will be catered to as much as needed. Captain Allen is also happy to bait every hook and cast every line for beginners. We will primarily be fishing for Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Speckled Trout.

Your boat for the day will be a clean 23.5’ deep vee center console Mako that accommodates up to 6 anglers. The deep vee hull, with its high gunnels, provides a safe, comfortable ride and offers greater range to get out to some of the more desirable fishing spots. The boat includes a large t-top for shade, deep live well, a toilet, and all the necessary fishing gear for your trip. Live bait is also included in the cost of your trip. 

The boat will be supplied with plenty of ice and bottled water. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks to be stored in our boat cooler. Don’t forget a fishing license for everyone over the age of 17.

You can keep anything you catch, as long as it’s legal. Upon return to the dock, Captain Allen will filet all fish and pack it up for your ride home.

Up for a family trip? This is a child-friendly business, so bring your littles to share in the memories. Thinking of entering a tournament? Let Captain Allen be your guide!

Book your trip now and hit the water with Clear Lake Fishing Charters. It’ll be one of the best things you do this year!
