Bay Fishing Port O'Connor

Come fish the Gulf Coast with Bay Fishing Port O’Connor. You’ll ride along Matagorda Bay, Espiritu Santo Bay, and San Antonio Bay, waterways protected from the Gulf of Mexico by a system of barrier islands, creating the perfect conditions for a flourishing ecosystem for prestigious inshore game fish. Captain Will Granberry is an outdoors enthusiast and even graduated in Fisheries Management, so you can rest assured that you’re in for a productive trip.

You’ll set off aboard a 25’ Majek Illusion, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine that can help you reach speeds of up to 51 knots. Not only will you get there in no time, but the boat is a center console, giving enough room for all 4 anglers to cast and maneuver at the same time. When in the skinny waters, the wireless trolling motor will kick in, to allow you to creep up on the spooky fish beneath. Capt. Will even invites you to go wading, to get up really close to them!

Choose between fishing the flats and backcountry for Speckled Trout and Redfish, or the bays, passes, and gulf beach fronts for large game fish such as Sharks and Tarpon in the summer. While Sharks and Tarpon are catch and release only, you’ll have the opportunity to reel in some tasty food for your dinner, with the ability to troll or drift fish for a range of other species, such as Snapper or Spanish Mackerel – and even go gigging for Flounder. There’s no way you’ll be disappointed.

You won’t find many other places where such a range of fish co-exist. So capitalize on Bay Fishing Port O’Connor’s fantastic offers today, and make the most of the abundant waters leading to the Gulf. Bring your own food and drink, grab your fishing license, and you’re ready to go. With some of the best game fishing imaginable, and the chance to bag yourself some dinner: get booking right away.
