Texas Fish N Reelz (Kids Surf Charters)

We specialize in taking young kids fishing ages(4-17) in the waters around Freeport/Surfside Beach/ Areas and we invite you along for a trip the kids will remember and enjoy making memories that last a lifetime !!

We Teach the kids the basic and fundamentals to surf fishing and get them set up with there own new rod and reel to take home after the trip if you choose that package choice so they can carry that love and passion for fishing home to practice for the next time.

Around here it’s common to go light tackle fishing, and that’s exactly what you’ll do. You may also bottom fish, spin, or cast a popping cork for your catch. we will provide rods and reels, as well as lures and live bait.

Depending on conditions, you might hook into Trout, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Pompano, Rays, Redfish, Blacktip Sharks, Bonnethead Shark,  Snook, black drum, and who knows what else !!

This is a great option for kids who get sea sick and parents who want to relax on the beach while the kids enjoy fishing for several hours on a nice summer day! Send us a message today to get your trip booked !!
