Come experience the best fishing trip possible on beautiful Clear Lake, Texas and connected waters with Captain Mark Lamping or Captain Allen Welch.  They do whatever they can to provide the best possible experience for their guests, allowing them to unwind, enjoy the water, catch some fish, and create lasting memories.

Clear Lake Fishing Charters has 2 amazing Mako center console fishing boats.  Our goal is to make you as comfortable to fish as possible, maximize your time fishing, and increase your chances of catching fish.

We will fish for Flounder, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Black Drum.  We stay inshore, so the water is usually pretty calm. We use live bait and other tackle depending on fishing conditions.

Children over the age of 8 are welcome to join. 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. The crew covers cold water and Gatorade and does have a cooler with plenty of ice on the boat for customer use.

There’s no better way to get away from it all than being on the water. Make a reservation with Clear Lake Fishing Charters right now. You’ll be glad you did!
