Rod Bending Charters – 24'

Rod Bending Charters offers an exciting range of fishing charters along the waters of Galveston Bay! Captain Jason Woods has been fishing the Gulf since he was a child and has turned his hobby into a trade on the very same waters. He’s passionate about helping first-time anglers and children make their first catch.

Head out on a 24’ Tidewater center console boat, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. Propelling you to speeds of 40 knots, you’ll reach the hottest fishing spots in no time. The boat has a GPS, fishfinder, VHF, sonar, and includes a live bait tank to get the most out of each fishing trip. There is a porta potty in the center console. Sun junkies can use most areas of the boat, catching the rays while casting, while the T-top protecting the center console ensures that you have room to cool off.

You’ll be provided with high-quality rods and reels. To make your catch, you’ll try out a range of fishing techniques, such as jigging, popping, and bottom fishing, and Capt. Jason and his crew will be more than happy to lend a helping hand.

Half and full day trips will have you targeting big Red Fish, Trout, black drum, flounder, Jack Crevalle, and Sharks, amongst others, but you can also target Sharks on more specialized trips.

Rod Bending Charters love to have families on their trips, so bring the kids for a fun day on the water. They do their best to put you on the fish, and ensure you have a great time out on the water. All you need to bring is your snacks, drinks & fishing license. If you are successful, you’ll even be able to take your catch home with you, cleaned and prepared for you to warm up.

No matter if you are new to fishing or a seasoned angler, Rod Bending Charters look forward to welcoming you aboard!
