Book your next trip with Reel Salty Charters and find out what you’re missing in Port O’Connor. Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Timothy is prepared to put you on fish.

species like Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, Blacktip Shark, Speckled Trout, and more are in the cards if conditions are right. On these trips, it’s common to drift and bottom fish using light tackle. Capt. Timothy can also take you Flounder gigging.

The fish caught are yours to keep, so long as they meet regulations. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. How’s that for fresh seafood?

Families who love fishing together will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Snacks are never a bad idea to stay fueled throughout your trip!

You’ll be casting lines from a 25’ Tran Sport center console with space for 4 passengers. It comes with all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. Your captain will provide rods and reels, along with lures.

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.

It’s never a bad idea to bring sunglasses, sunscreen (non-spray), bottled water, and a hat. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Give yourself something to look forward to and book a trip with Reel Salty Charters!
