If you’re ready to go fishing in Houston, book a trip with Max Outfitters. With Captain Jose at the helm, you’ll have a knowledgeable and experienced guide.

These waters are known for Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, and more – with any luck, it won’t take long to hook into some. You’ll target your catch by light tackle fishing, popping, jigging, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

You’ll find yourself aboard a 24’ NauticStar bay boat with room for 4 passengers. It has all the essentials. Your captain will provide rods and reels, as well as lures. Live bait is on offer, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

You will need to buy a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect. Some essentials to bring are bottled water, sunscreen (non-spray), and sunglasses. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

The click of a button is the only thing keeping you from a great day on the water with Max Outfitters!
