Capt Jon Mahan Hunting & Fishing

Lane Road
Seadrift TX, United States

Fishing out of Seadrift, Texas, Captain Jon Mahan offers fun inshore fishing trips for all the family. Known for his friendly manner with customers and excellent knowledge of where the fish hide, Captain John will make sure your trip is both enjoyable and productive.

Jon fishes aboard a 21 ft Shallow Sport boat which, true to its name, can access some of the shallowest of waters to get to where the fish are. The boat has plenty of room for up to four guests plus the captain and gives a dry and stable ride around the local bay systems.

Captain Jon Mahan fishes the bays for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum, and provides both live bait and artificial lures to suit all fishing styles. He welcomes all levels of angler aboard and supplies all the rods and reels you will need throughout your trip.

Get ready for your trip by bringing suitable clothing, any food or beverages you might like to consume, and a valid Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp. Everything else you need for your Texas inshore fishing experience will be waiting for you on board the boat!

Saltwater fishing is my passion. I grew up in Kingsville, Texas fishing Baffin Bay as a child. I now live in Victoria and love to fish in the bays around Seadrift & Port O'Connor.

Thank you very much for the great review. Looking forward to catching some more fish with you and your grandson next time. I love catching those big trout! Also, be sure to hit me up during duck season for your grandson. I think he would have a blast!

Another success trip with Capt Jon!  Jon knows the bays and he finds the fish.  Catching fish at the coast usually isn’t a problem.  Catching quality fish and filling up the ice chest is more of a challenge.  Capt Jon is on top of his game and he’s not afraid of making those long runs to find fish.  Thanks again for a great trip.  We will definitely book another trip in the near future.
