Get the Net Fishing Charters

Get the Net Charters welcomes you aboard for a classic Texas inshore adventure. Captain Bobby Lavender will take you to all his favorite fishing spots, using the tried and tested techniques he has built up over his many years on the water. He will get you on monster catches of Trout, Redfish, and much, much more.

Stalk the shallows aboard Captain Bobby’s 24’ Clearwater bay boat. She can fit six anglers with ease, carrying you and your group to the best spots at speed thanks to her clean-burning Honda outboard. She also has a silent trolling motor for sneaking up on spooky fish lurking among the murky backwaters.

Once you get into position, the vessel really comes into her own. She is stocked with quality light tackle from Penn, Daiwa, Ugly Stiks, and more. Live bait will be provided at cost to temp the fussiest of fish.

Captain Bobby will adapt each trip to suit you. If you’re a group of beginners or a family with kids, he will make sure you get that all-important first fish, and will walk you through all his trick to bringing in the biggest catch. Experienced anglers can spend the day focusing on one specific fish or technique, or go for limits and bring back a boatload of tasty table fare.

All Get the Net Charters trips come with quality tackle, lures, bottled water, and a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch. Remember to bring a saltwater fishing license, a hat, sunscreen, and the biggest cooler you can lay your hands on!
