Rod Bending Charters

Rod Bending Charters sure do live up to their name - if thrilling rod-bending action is what you are after, then Captain Jason and his crew are the ones to guide you to where the big fish like to play in Galveston, Texas. They have a lot of knowledge about migratory patterns of species in this area and offer everything from inshore to offshore fishing, 365 days of the year. They are fully insured and all captains are USCG licensed, and their goal is for you to catch fish and have a great time doing it!

You will head out on the brand new 30’ center console Sea Hunt, which offers a smooth, dry and fast ride to the fishing grounds. It is powered by twin 300 HP Suzuki engines and is navigated by GPS, fishfinder, VHF, sonar and radar. The spacious deck allows plenty of room to fish in comfort, and is perfect for larger groups. Its oversized T-top provides plenty of shade and rain protection, and the boat also has an onboard restroom. To increase your chances of landing fish, the boat comes fitted with outriggers and live bait tank, while the first mate will be on hand to assist you throughout the day. The crew use very high-quality Shimano and Avet reels, and Ugly Stik Tiger and custom hopper rods.

Rod Bending Charters offer a range of fishing trips, so if you’re looking to save yourself a long boat ride, you can target big fish around Galveston Jetty and Ship Channel. Got your eye set on Sharks? No problem, you can spend the whole day tackling these beasts. For those seeking deep-sea action, you can choose between going close offshore or heading out 50+ miles on the water. Depending on the trip you select, you will target species such as Kingfish, Ling, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, Wahoo, Billfish, Tuna, Bonita, Sharks, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, Cobia, Redfish, Trout, and many more. All trips include rods, reels, tackle, bait, fuel, and cleaning of fish. Fishing licenses are not included.

The Rod Bending Charters crew look forward to seeing you on the water!

I started fishing the Gulf as a kid, and turned my passion into a job that I love. I have now been in this business for 15 years, and take great pride in providing once-in-a-lifetime fishing experiences for all of my customers. I really enjoy teaching young anglers and watching kids have a great time catching fish.
