Gulfcoast Legends

NASA Road 1
Seabrook TX, United States

Captain Jonny Merkle of Gulfcoast Legends has been fishing the waters of the Gulf Coast all his life and loves nothing more than to impart the knowledge he has picked up over the years on to his charter guests. Offering light tackle inshore fishing trips from Seabrook, Texas, his charter service is easy to reach from the center of Houston and also has excellent access to the rich and diverse Galveston Bay system. If you are looking for the chance to learn something new about fishing in the area in a great location, he is the man to contact.

Captain Jonny’s boat is a lightweight Majek center console. At 25 foot from bow to stern, the boat can hold up to four guests plus the captain. This fast vessel is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine that lets it speed to the best fishing spots in the area in no time, and with Lowrance navigational electronics on board it will mean you will always be able to find the best spot for catching fish.

Your trip will involve fishing the local flats and backcountry as you set your sights on hooking a Texas saltwater slam, trying to catch Redfish, Speckled Trout and Flounder all in one trip. Fishing with light tackle, you will have access to live bait (included in the trip price) as well as a variety of artificial lures. Captain Jonny will teach you a variety of techniques to use with different styles of lures to get the most out of the area’s inshore waters. In his own words: “I enjoy teaching and catching, not just catching!”

I have been fishing the gulf coast area since I was a kid , learning the bays and how the fish react to the weather. I enjoy the outdoors and watching the sun rise and set.
