Fin Tastic Coastal Charters Inc. invites you on a fishing adventure in the shallow waters of Matagorda, Texas. The charter is operated by Captain Stan Sloan who has been fishing for over 30 years and guiding professionally since 2006.

Captain Sloan has participated in and won countless fishing tournaments including the Halls Bayou Classic where he had won 1st place in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2007, and 2014. His other notable achievements include the 2014 Guides Cup 1st Place Heavy Trout and 2016 JH Boat Owners Tournament 1st Place Heavy Flounder.

Captain Sloan can take you fishing for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum when they are in season. He knows exactly where to go, and how to cook them, and he’ll teach you the same! You will fish the East and West Matagorda Bays in Texas.

You will fish aboard a 24-foot Tran Sport Cat 240 SVT Boats center console originally built in 2015. The boat is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. It is fast and steady on the water and will get you to the productive areas with ease.
