Saltwater Charter

Saltwater Charter invites you to join them for your next fishing adventure out of Port Aransas, Texas. Whether it’s your first time on the water or you are a salty veteran, Captain Erik will make your day one to remember!

Step aboard the “Sea Hag,” Capt. Erik’s 36’ Uniflite boat. She comes powered by a 550 HP Detroit engine to get you to the fishing grounds safely. The boat can carry six anglers in comfort on the hunt for huge fish.

The vessel is fitted with top-notch navigational electronics and other professional accessories. Her walkaround design gives you all-around flexible fishability while her portable toilet makes ever longer trips comfortable. This is an ex-naval patrol vessel, so you know she’s been well maintained.

You’ll be able to fish in state-regulated waters, which is 9 miles out from any point of the Texas coastline. Test the waters outside the jetties for some rod-bending action against Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Tripletail, and who knows what else – Saltwater Charter can cater to any angler’s needs.

Up for something a little bigger? Check the bite a bit farther out and fish for Shark, King Mackerel, Cobia, Red Snapper, Barracuda, and on rare occasions Mahi Mahi. With such an impressive list of potential catches, it’s hard to resist a trip or two!

All trips come with bait, tackle, rods, and reels. Just bring your own ice chest with your favorite drinks and snacks. Catch cleaning is done on the dock by the cleaners for an additional fee.

Get on the boat, kickback, and let the crew do the rest. Fish on!

    This is an offshore trip targeting many species depending on the time of year. This trip you have time to get 'bonus fish' as we call them. We try to get our limits on our main species and then target bonus fish. We recommend this trip just for the fact that you get more fishing time to fill your bag limits of multiple species. Catch cleaning is done on the dock by the cleaners for an additional fee. This is a state waters trip.

I was taught by my grandma at the age of 3 to Crappie fish and I have been hooked on fishing ever since then. I had my own boat, just a small skiff since I was 16 years of age, when I was old enough to drive. I had very trusting parents, they let me hunt on my own with a 410 shotgun at the age of 10. Anyhow, I wanted to be a charter boat captain the first time I went offshore, I just loved it. I would watch the Capt. run the boat and his crew. I would tell myself some day that will be me. I now have fulfilled that dream. I have freshwater guided, ran a boat for a seismograph co. and had my own commercial crabbing operation. I have fished the Gulf of Mexico, fished some years in the Pacific and some in Cabo. I love my job! Fishing is my passion and I love to see people have a good time. Come join us!!!!
