Texas Saltwater Adventures - 30' Stamas

Operating out of Galveston and Freeport for more than 20 years, Texas Saltwater Adventures are one of the most prominent charters in the area who specialize in providing excellent customer service and incredible fishing experiences to their customers. Captain Leaf Potter is a passionate angler who can’t wait to show you what Texas coast and Gulf of Mexico fishing is all about!

Your boat for the day will be a 30’ Stamas center console, fully restored in 2015. Its twin 225 HP Yamaha engines ensure smooth and fast ride, while top-notch navigational and fishfinding electronics guarantees you will spend your time fishing, not searching for the fish. The boat also features a restroom, a live bait tank, and an icebox for your catch.

The captain will do everything he can to put you on the biggest trophies out there, including Bull Redfish, Tuna, Sharks, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, King Mackerel, Snapper, Cobia, and so much more. He’ll also show you all the tried and true techniques, including trolling, spinning, jigging, drifting, and many others.

Kids are more than welcome to join in the adventure since there is no age limit. Just make sure to buy valid fishing licenses for all persons older than 17 in your party.

The charter will cover top quality tackle, lures, and live bait (caught during the trip). The only additional cost for you might be fuel on longer offshore trips. So head to these bountiful waters and let Texas Saltwater Adventures show you how it’s done.
