ESCape Charters

Marker 37
Corpus Christi TX, United States

Based out of one of the nicest Marinas in the Laguna Madre area, ESCape Charters are giving you the chance to try your hand at hooking a trophy Trout or Redfish in Baffin Bay, Corpus Christi Bay, or Laguna Madre.

Owned and operated by Captain Ken Cotton, ESCape Charters fish aboard a 23 Stoner Super Cat that is powered by a 150 HP Evinrude engine. This boat features a very wide beam to allow plenty of space for up to four anglers to fish, and its very smooth, stable and dry ride will make sure the trip is enjoyable for everyone on board. Equipped with a variety of pro features including a Motor Guide trolling motor, a poling platform and a jack plate, this is the boat you need to meet the challenges of inshore fishing in Baffin Bay and beyond. And thanks to its shallow draft that allows it to float in just 8 to 10 inches of water, the boat can take you almost everywhere you could want to go to find fish.

Captain Ken Cotton believes in providing his customers with top quality gear to give them the best chance of catching fish, and uses top of the range Penn and Shimano gear. Whenever he is not guiding, he is drifting and trolling the islands with different hard and soft lures to constantly innovate and experiment in order to always be on top of the best techniques for the conditions during your trip.
