Southwest Sportfishing invites you on an offshore fishing adventure in the waters of Port Aransas, Texas. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Roger Sorenson who has spent a lifetime guiding happy guests to the fish of their dreams.
Fishing is done aboard a 33’ Bertram Express cruiser originally built in 1984, with a capacity for six persons. Powered by twin 275 HP Catapillar engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots, the vessel is fast and safe in getting you to the offshore grounds. It features a GPS and a fishfinder used to locate the most productive spots, a livewell for the bait, and an icebox for the catch.
The vessel is super comfortable featuring a full-size toilet, a bed, a kitchen, and all the safety features needed including life jackets for adults and 2 kids’ life jackets for under 75 pounds. Capt. Roger’s boat also has a set of outriggers that are used when trolling.
Capt. Roger will take you to the offshore waters where Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Cobia, Sharks, and Red Snapper can be found. Using a variety of fishing techniques such as light tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, and drift fishing, you will target the species in season.
The crew has Okuma and Shimano rods and reels, as well as a variety of tackle and lures. You will need a fishing license, a cooler for your catch, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, and something to eat and drink on the trip.
Enjoy a day of fishing out of Port Aransas with Southwest Sportfishing and have the time of your life!
