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

Overall fishing in Port O'Connor is very successful. But please be careful if you bring your own boat, the topo maps on most GPSS are off. The last hurricane really change the area.

We booked Captian Jon for a morning trip and from the first time we met him it was nothing but kindness. He assured us that we weren’t going in until we caught our limit in red fish. He came through because we caught our limit as well as some trout, black drum, and sand trout. I highly recommend booking your trip with Captian Jon.

We had tough fishing conditions, including a downpour and Capt. Jon still made it happen. He knows how to get you on fish. We caught almost 4 limits of reds, obviously only keeping the allotted amount. We highly recommend and plan on coming back soon. Thanks for the great trip and conversation. The Popes

What a day! We hit it big with Captain Keith today. We had an ice chest full of fish in less than 2 hours! Redfish and black drum one after another all morning, plus a few trout to top it off. We ended up with more fish than we knew what to do with. Keith is first class all the way. Will definitely be back soon!
