Top Fishing Charters in Freeport


Are you looking for a laid-back adventure in a quiet fishing town? Escape the hustle and bustle of the big city, and head out on one of the fishing charters in Freeport, Texas. You’ll get to spend the day exploring the legendary Brazos River, wildlife refuges, and the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico – all in a day!

With a variety of fishing grounds on offer here, you can plan your adventure according to the fish you’re after. The shallow waters of the bays, as well as the mouth of the Brazos River, hold great numbers of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and Black Drum. Heading on a Gulf fishing trip will see you reeling in Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin… the list goes on!

You can also plan your trip depending on the time you’d like to spend on the water and your fishing ambitions. A half day trip will take you to the inshore waters and marshes, making it the perfect family adventure. Offshore fishing adventures will require a bit more time, so booking a full day or more is the best way to enjoy the deep blue.

This is a true fishing haven, which you’ll see once you head out in search of fishing charters in Freeport. You’ll find them dotted along the Old Brazos River, as well as the nearby Oyster Creek and Surfside. Just choose the one you like and fish on!

January

We’re not going to lie – January isn’t exactly the most alluring time of year to get out on the water in Freeport. But brave the colder weather, and you can get some great bites from Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Redfish.

February

Just like in January, fishing in Freeport in February can mean big Redfish inshore, with Sheepshead and Drum making an appearance, too. Go offshore, and try for Red Snapper, Amberjack, and Bull Reds.

March

Get the most out of Spring Break and hire a Freeport fishing charter with your own personal crew. Hot targets include big Bull Redfish on the beachfront and Red Snappers in State Waters. 

April

FIshing has really taken off by now. Nearshore, you’ll find you’re in the middle of the Cobia migration, while inshore, there are numerous catches of Speckled Trout and Redfish. 

May

The temperature is rising and the fishing is hot! Fish for Bull Reds in emerald green waters and pleasant weather. The Shark bite is picking up, with Bull, Hammerhead, Spinner, and many more Sharks around.

June

The federal Red Snapper season opens, allowing you to keep the big ones found further offshore. Troll for Kingfish on the way out or stay inshore for Flounder. Don’t miss the Fishin’ Fiesta at Freeport Municipal Park!

July

If you’re looking to go offshore, now's the time to do it. This is one of the best times to fish in Freeport Texas, with long-range boats trying for Billfish Grand Slams and some of the biggest Blackfin Tuna in the Gulf of Mexico.

August

Fishing out of Freeport in August is some of the best deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Watch the pros battle for the biggest Blue Marlin in the Texas Billfish Classic, or head out yourself in search of a monster.

September

Offshore fishing that remains as good as ever – just find a shrimp boat, chum like crazy, and see what you will catch. Big Blacktip Sharks, huge Bull Redfish, King Mackerel, Cobia, and so much more are there for the taking.

October

Some of the best fishing in Freeport is in state waters in October. Look for big Red Snapper, spawning Bull Redfish, Kingfish, and Cobia. Inshore, Flounder is in peak season and Speckled Trout is caught in large numbers.

November

The weather gets more wintery as fall draws to a close. Unpredictable weather can limit offshore trips. Inshore, Flounder is biting as well as ever, while Speckled Trout and Redfish are consistent in the back lakes and marshes.

December

Enjoy the festive season in Freeport by looking out for big Snapper in state waters. Want an unusual way of bonding with your family over the Christmas period? Have a go at gigging for Flounder in shallow waters inshore.
