Texas Tail Chasers

Texas Tail Chasers is based in Bayou Vista. Operated by Captain Jimmy New, they invite you to join them for a boat ride around Galveston Bay and Clear Lake. The company is family-friendly and the Captain is great with kids. If you cannot wait to land the fish of your dreams and spend a relaxing day on the water, look no further!

You will be fishing aboard a 23-foot Haynie boat, powered by a 250 HP Honda engine. It has a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots and is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a fish finder, and a VHF radio. The vessel has an anchoring motor and an ice-box, as well as a live bait tank. It can cater up to four guests on board.

Texas Tail Chasers offers six-hour packages to choose from. You can go fishing the bay, going for Speckled Trout and Redfish, using artificial lures or live bait. Or you can nearshore, fishing the jetties for Redfish, trophy Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Among the variety of fishing techniques, used by the crew, you will get a chance to go for light tackle, bottom, and drift fishing.

The trip of your choosing will include rods, reels, and tackle. At the end of your adventure, the catch will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home. If you want, you can feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks.

Join Texas Tail Chasers and have a relaxing day on the beautiful waters of Texas.
