Reelhard Fishin Charter – 46'

Reelhard Fishing Charter offers blue water adventures out of Freeport, Texas. The company is operated by Captain Paul, who is a knowledgeable angler with over 30 years of experience. Join Paul to catch a fish you will brag about for months to come!

Step aboard a newly restored 46’ Hatteras, which is a stable and spacious fishing machine. It comes powered by twin 650 HP Detroit engines for a quick and safe ride. Perfect for accommodating up to 6 anglers, the vessel is fully equipped with modern navigational electronics, outriggers, a live well loaded with bait, and a flybridge to spot any action going on beneath the surface. Head inside to find an air-conditioned saloon with restrooms and sleeping quarters. The boat is especially good for overnight fishing adventures.

Fishing the productive Texas state waters is a unique experience no-one should miss. Whether it’s drift fishing, bottom fishing or trolling, your fishing trip may result in outstanding catches. A deck hand will assist you with hooking the bait, catching, cleaning or releasing fish. Have the waters all to yourself on a full-day trip, head out in the Gulf for Kingfish, Mahi-Mahi, Ling, Snapper, Shark, and many other species.

All trips come with rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and the fish cleaning and filleting service. You will be provided with snacks, so feel free to bring your own food and drinks with you. You will need to purchase a valid license prior to the trip.
