Texas Coast Fishing Charters is run and operated by Captain Cody Phillips, specializing in inshore and offshore fishing trips out of Jamaica Beach, TX. Cody has been on the water ever since he was five, and will happily share what he has learned with his guests. Anglers of all shapes and sizes are welcome aboard, no matter if you’re a novice or pro. Family trips are very much encouraged, as they are loads of fun for everyone.

You will be fishing aboard a 22’ Bay Stealth saltwater fishing boat that’s powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. It has all of the necessary safety and navigation equipment you’ll need for a productive trip, along with a live well for storing bait. There’s plenty of space for up to five people to be able to fish without getting in each other’s way.

If you’re interested in exploring the inshore waters, Captain Cody tan take you fishing for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum in the bays. Otherwise, you can go offshore in search of Kingfish and other fish that can’t be found so close to shore.

Rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price of any trip, and Captain Cody will be happy to clean and fillet anything you catch after the trip. You will need to bring along a valid Texas saltwater fishing license, and a pair of polarized sunglasses is highly recommended for the best experience.

Redfish MADNESS
September 18, 2022
The last few weeks on the water have been absolutely incredible. If I had to take a guess on how many red fish we caught in the last weeks I would say 250 to 300. Most of the fish we've caught have been in 3 foot or less of water on a popping cork and shrimp. A lot of the recent trips I've ran have had non-stop action from the first cast to the last one. If you want to come get in on some of this action book a trip and let's go make some memories!
