So Reel Offshore Charters

So Reel Offshore Charters specializes in fishing adventures to remember on the waters out of Corpus Christi and the Padre islands, in Texas. Join Captain Eric and spend an action-packed and productive day out.

Wintertime means State water Snapper and high speed Wahoo fishing. Check out the gallery for recent trip photos! Whichever fish species you have in your angling bucket list, let your captain know and he will work hard to put you on top of hot fish. Plus, there is always a possibility to reel in Cobia and even Sailfish, depending on the time of the year.

Head farther out for some trolling and bottom fishing action for Blackfin Tuna, Mahi-Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and Amberjack. And if you are a die-hard angler who is up to a challenge, head to the blue waters and troll for Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, and Tuna. All in one trip!

So Reel Offshore Charters just upgraded to a 35’ Everglade vessell – your captain likes to call it the “cadillac of center console fishing machines!” She is a spacious and seaworthy vessel that can comfortably take up to six anglers for an adventure of a lifetime. The boat comes powered by Triple 300 HP Suzuki engines and provides a fast and safe ride to the hottest spots in the area.

The vessel is fully fitted with latest navigational electronics and safety facilities. There is a restroom and a bed on board for your maximum comfort when spending your day on the water, along with many other professional accessories.

All trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and fish cleaning and filleting service for extra fee. On top of this, “So Reel” was recently chartered for the 83rd Deep Sea Roundup, and got their clients second place in the competition – who could be better equipped to provide you with the fishing adventure of your dreams?
