Offshore Fishing in Freeport

Offshore fishing in Freeport, TX can be almost any experience you choose to make it! Whether you’re cruising “close” offshore waters for Mackerel and Jack Crevalle, or heading further out to hook Mahi Mahi and more, you’ll be in for the adventure of a lifetime. 
 

What to Expect

Freeport is located along Texas’s upper coast, and provides direct access to the world-famous Gulf of Mexico. This fishery is bustling with an incredible number of species, from reef-dwelling table fare, to notorious shoreline Sharks, to hard-fighting pelagics. It’s easy to see why the Texas Gulf Coast is so popular, and Freeport is the perfect place for anglers of all skill levels to begin their adventure.
 
If you’re just discovering your sea legs, you’ll find a whole host of charter captains ready to take you to “close” offshore waters. Located around 20–30 miles from the shoreline, you’ll encounter Kingfish, Jack Crevalle, and plenty more. These fish provide exciting rod-bending action, and are a perfect introduction to Freeport’s fishery.
 
More experienced anglers who are willing to travel further out from the 30-mile mark will generally find themselves bottom fishing the depths around Freeport’s many wrecks and reefs for tasty Grouper and Snapper species. You’ll also be able to target hard-fighting Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Wahoo, and plenty of others, with trolling being the most popular technique.
 
Now, this is where the possibilities get really exciting: Freeport is a popular starting point for fishermen looking to explore canyons located around 150 miles from shore. Some anglers refer to these extended excursions as “offshore” trips, but this is more typically known as deep sea fishing. If you’re willing to commit to the journey, you’ll have a chance to hook Tuna, Marlin, and more.
 

How to Prepare

Charter captains in Freeport will make sure you’re decked out with rods, reels, bait or lures, and tackle. You’ll need to purchase a valid Texas fishing license before your trip. Once you’ve done this, the incredible offshore waters of Freeport’s Gulf Coast are all yours!

Take something for motion sickness day before and day off. Bring rain gear, bring food and plenty of electrolytes and do not drink alcohol night before or during your trip.

We caught lots of fish, but would have enjoyed a few bull reds. Can't guarantee what will be caught though.

If fishing was easy it would be called catching! You never know if you are going to catch fish when you go out on a trip. We caught many fish, I lost count on the total number. We caught stark, bull reds and catfish.

We did federal waters, catch and release, while the season is closed. The fish were hungry enough we couldn't keep them off our hooks. If you don't need anything to take home, that's the way to go.

Spend as much time as possible. The more time you spend the more fish you'll catch. Fish with live shrimp for bait.

Meet up with captain Marshal booker he is a great captain and I’m sure he’d be more than happy to show anyone how to fish! Young or old Marshal could show them the ropes and get many fish in the boat.
