Clear Lake Fishing Charters I

Come experience the best fishing trip on beautiful Clear Lake, Texas and surrounding waters with Captain Allen Welch or Captain Mark Lamping. We provide the highest-quality experience; allowing our customers to relax, enjoy the water, catch some fish, and make lots of great memories.

Clear Lake Fishing Charters has 2 amazing Mako center console fishing boats. We will contact you before your trip to discuss which of our boats best fits your needs and current fishing conditions.  Our goal to make it as comfortable to fish as possible, maximize your time fishing, and increase your chances of catching fish.

We will fish for flounder, redfish, speckled trout, sheepshead, and black drum. We stay inshore, so the water is usually pretty calm. We use both light and heavy tackle to provide a variety of fishing options. Children 8 and up are welcome on the boat. If you have a special situation with a younger child, please let us know.

Clear Lake Fishing Charters provides all the fishing gear, including rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live shrimp. The only things you need to bring are fishing licenses for everyone 17 and older and any food or drinks you may want on the trip. We provide cold water and Gatorade and do have a cooler on the boat for customer use.

There is no place like the water to escape the daily grind. Book your trip with Clear Lake Fishing Charters today. You’ll be glad you did!
