Redfish Lake Guide Service offers light tackle fishing charters in the east and west Matagorda Bay. Owned and operated by local guide Captain Mark Wakefield, this service will fulfill all your inshore and nearshore fishing desires.

Captain Mark fishes aboard a 24’ Tran XLR8 center console that was locally built specifically for the area’s waters. Powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, the boat provides a dry, smooth ride and will take you to the fish fast. Featuring a range of navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and an ice-box for your drinks, the vessel has everything you need for a fun day of fishing.

During your trip, you will be fishing for Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, with the possibility of catching a tasty Tripletail if you’re lucky. Captain Mark offers drift fishing trips suitable for all experience levels. He will provide all the necessary equipment, including live bait and topwater lures, as well as other artificial bait.

The captain will also gladly clean and fillet your hard-fought catch for you to take home after the trip. If you don’t already possess one, please make sure to purchase a valid Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp before your trip.

If you’re having second thoughts about bringing your little ones, rest assured that they’re more than welcome to join in the fun. There are no age limits and special life jackets for them will be covered by the charter. All aboard!

I can’t express how great this the was and how knowledgeable Mark was. He put us on the fish and after we caught are limit of trout asked us what we’d like to do. So he took us after some redfish and put us on them as well. All in all I’d definitely recommend fishing with capitan Mark and I will be booking another trip with him!
