Jawjackers Charters will take you inshore and nearshore fishing for table and game fish out of Port Aransas, TX. The Aransas Bay is famous for its awesome inshore fishing, with huge Reds lurking in its murky shallows, and the area also enjoys easy access to the nearshore reefs nearby.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 22’ Carolina center console boat with room aboard for up to 4 guests. The vessel is perfect for navigating the shallow bays and flats, while still being stable enough to head further out when the weather is good. It comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a livewell full of fresh live bait, and everything you will need for the perfect day of fishing.

The crew specializes in inshore and nearshore fishing and provides a wide range of equipment to make the most out of your time on the water. Choose between trolling, bottom fishing, spinning, popping, jigging, and fly fishing for a wide range of species.

While this vessel is mainly set up for bay trips, fishing for big Bull Reds, Cobia, and Trout, you can also try your luck heading further out to fish for Sheepshead, Snapper, Kingfish, and more! All trips come with bait and tackle, and the captain can clean and fillet your catch after the trip (an additional fee applies for this service).

All that’s left to do is book a trip you like and join Jawjackers Charters on a fun-filled fishing adventure off the coast of Texas!
