According to customer reviews, Second To None Charters, Salty Peters Guide Service, and Captain Jon Mahan Hunting & Fishing are some of the most popular fishing charters in Port O'Connor, Texas. Full list of top fishing charters in Port O'Connor.

Second To None Charters, Salty Peters Guide Service, and Captain Jon Mahan Hunting & Fishing all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Port O'Connor.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Black Drum, and Flounder. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, drift fishing, and bottom fishing. Inshore fishing, flats fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Perched right between the iconic Matagorda Bay and the stunning Espiritu Santo Bay, you’ll find a quaint fishing village with a long history of resilience. Heading out with a Port O’Connor fishing guide is a great way to immerse yourself in the beauty and culture of this waterfront community. Four hurricanes leveled the town of Port O’Connor in the past century, but the Texas can-do attitude is stronger.

With such an abundance of water and natural resources, it’s no wonder that Port O’Connor boasts some of the most varied wildlife in the area. The inshore waters are rich, so you’ll find Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and Black Drum wherever you turn. A half day trip is a great introduction to the inshore fishery, while a Flounder gigging trip gives a real taste of Texas fishing.

The Gulf of Mexico is a short boat ride away as well, so if you’re looking for some deep sea action, you won’t have to look far. Snapper, Grouper, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Wahoo, Billfish – they’re all in the cards. Just make sure you dedicate enough time to cover these fishing grounds. A full day or more is probably the best idea if an offshore adventure sounds appealing.

When it comes to finding the best guide, you’ll have no issues in Port O’Connor. Fishing is a way of life here, so you’ll see fishing charters lined up at the docks. Just head on down to the water, take your pick, and sail out!

Rules & Regulations

Since fishing guides in Port O’Connor usually don’t provide you with a fishing license, you should buy one before your trip. If you want to keep Bull Reds, make sure you have a Redfish tag as well.

January

The start of the year is as solid as it gets in these parts. Whether it’s Specks, Redfish, or Black Drum, you can get a lot of work done with a skilled guide.

February

February is usually reserved for Speckled Trout fishing. They’ll be big, numerous, and generally unfazed by the windy conditions on the water.

March

As the temperatures slowly start to rise, we welcome spring fishing in Port O’Connor with open arms. Specks and Sheepshead are the flavors of the day, with some Jacks thrown into the mix as well.

April

The weather in April can be unpredictable, but that shouldn’t interfere with fishing too much. Redfish and Speckled Trout remain the main targets for inshore anglers.

May

This time of year usually means viable offshore fishing. Amberjack will be all over the deep waters, along with Kingfish and increasing numbers of Mahi Mahi.

June

June tends to mark the start of the federal Red Snapper season, meaning everybody will be trying to land as many of the bottom feeders as they possibly can!

July

It’s a great time to be fishing pretty much anywhere! Whether it’s inshore for Redfish or nearshore and offshore for Snapper, Kingfish, and Mahi Mahi, your work’s cut out for you.

August

It’s hot outside, but there’s also plenty of fish to catch. Mahi Mahi and Kingfish rule the offshore, while Specks reign in more shallow waters.

September

September is a great time to try your hand at Tuna fishing. Blackfins and Yellowfins will keep you very busy if you play your cards right.

October

The Redfish bite is so hot this time of year that the local jokingly call it “Red October.” Join the hunt in the inshore waters and hook some Bull Reds.

November

If going after Blue Marlin in the deep blue sounds like something up your alley, go for it! Alternatively, it’s a great time for some Flounder gigging.

December

Winter has set in and the inshore waters are very clear, making it a perfect time to do some sight casting inshore. A special treat for the fly anglers out there!

We caught a large amount of mangro snapper and used live shrimp amongst other forms of bait. The shrimp was one of the easiest for the kids to bait themselves

When the fishing slowed down or stopped at a spot he didn’t hesitate to move us on to the next spot. You won’t be disappointed

Captain Peters was awesome! Very friendly and told plenty of funny jokes. The afternoon fish were being difficult to catch after morning storms but he would not stop trying different spots until we caught the limit. His boat is clean, roomy, comfortable and smooth on the water and looked dang good too. I would highly recommend this charter and will definitely be fishing with Captain Peters again.

Captain John really knows his stuff!! I highly recommend him. Super nice boat, dock and equipment. It was a blast. He knows a lot about the history of Port O’ Conner, the old army base on the island and matagorda. Very educational. Super laid back and fun. We swam, had a picnic and he put us on the fish!! He’s loves kids !! My 8 year old daughter reeled up a few reds and other species amd had a ball. Thanks John ! The Richardson’s will be using him only from now on :-)🍺🦈

My buddy and I booked Captain Jon for our first redfishing experience. Aside from being a great angler, Captain Jon is also an awesome guy to be around. He got us on fish immediately, and his jokes and stories helped us relax and just enjoy the day. If you want to catch your limit and some laughs, Captain Jon is your guy!

First off, we are novices when it comes to fishing but Captain Joshua taught us the basics and made us feel like REAL fishermen! We were able to catch sharks and big fish called Red Bulls! Despite the rainy weather, Captain Joshua made us feel safe and ensured our trip was filled with optimal fishing! Captain Joshua is extremely knowledgeable and made our fishing trip a FUN and exciting adventure! We highly recommend his charter and would love to book again!

Captain Joshua was a great host and to hang out with. We booked an 8 hour trip and I'd say it was well worth it. He is very knowledgeable and help teach you the dos and don't when doing inshore fishing. We caught a good amount of fish but of course had to release because of their size. We had no luck on the reds except for one but did good on catching bonnethead sharks. Overall, I recommend doing a fishing guide with Captain Joshua. We'll come back soon!

We started slow and one of our party got seasick because of the weather. But Benny kept a great attitude and we were able to rally. We wound up catching some nice fish. I recommend using Benny. I know when I come back I will use him again.
