Capt Larry J Hensley C'mon Fishing

Come on out for a great time with Captain Larry J Hensley’s C’mon Fishing charters! You’ll explore Texas’s famous Lower Laguna Madre for some spectacular fishing and beautiful sunsets. Your captain’s goal is to put you on a great day of fishing and to help you, your family, and friends make some lifelong memories.

You’ll be fishing aboard your captain’s 22’ Shallow Sport flats boat, originally built in 2017 and powered by a 175 HP Yamaha engine. She’s perfectly built to cruise these waters, and can accommodate up to 5 guests. Children are more than welcome, so bring the whole family along!

This vessel comes decked out with top navigational equipment, such as GPS and fishfinder, as well as a live bait well. On board, you’ll find all the gear you need, including fly fishing equipment and snorkeling gear for those of you who want to mix up your angling action.

These waters are known as being home to some incredible fish species, and Capt. Larry will help you target the catch of your dreams. You’ll have the chance to cast your line for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, Flounder, Kingfish, among others. You can opt for a shorter trip, which is the perfect introduction to this fishery, or spend all day on the water exploring the possibilities.

You’ll have a variety of techniques to try, including drift fishing, bottom fishing, popping, fly fishing, and that unique Texan tradition, Flounder gigging. If you choose to keep your catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home and fry up as a tasty meal. You may also release your fish back into the water if you prefer.

Captain Larry J Hensley’s C’mon Fishing Charters provides all the fishing gear you need, so just be sure to bring a Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp and come prepared to have a great time. Fish on!
