Southwest Sportfishing

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.

Captain 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.

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 kid’s life jackets for under 75 lbs. Captain Roger’s boat also has a set of outriggers which are used when trolling.

Southwest Sportfishing carries 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.

Captain Roger started chartering out of Port Aransas in the late 70's. He says: "My dad started bringing me here when I was a kid and I fell in love.". He fishes the offshore waters and finds it very satisfying when he sees his guests catch great fish.
