Deep Sea Fishing in Texas

With various reefs, wrecks, dropoffs, and oil rigs located off its shores, the Lone Star State is a destination where even your wildest angling dreams can come true. All you really have to do is pair up with one of the many Texas deep sea fishing charters and you’ll be set for the adventure of a lifetime.

Depending on which part of the Texan coast you start your trip from, you’ll probably need to travel around 35 to 50 miles offshore to get in on the big game action. Out there, you’ll have your pick of delicious reef fish, as well as all kinds of pelagic species.

Among the reef dwellers, you can expect to hook into the famous Red Snapper. Even though their federal season is usually only open during summer, they’re a fish you definitely don’t want to miss out on. Outside the Red Snapper season, you can go for other bottom fish such as Amberjack, big offshore Grouper, and other types of Snapper.

If you focus your attention on pelagics instead, you can expect to reel in the likes of King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, as well as Blue and White Marlin. If you visit during summer, you can find these fish as close as 40 miles offshore. However, the hottest action takes place around the offshore oil rigs, located over 100 miles offshore.

As long as the weather holds up, you’ll be able to catch something no matter the time of year your visit. For Tuna lovers, winter is a great time to head offshore and catch your fill of these fish. Often, you’ll also see speedy Wahoo biting the end of your line. The best places to find a deep sea charter captain in Texas are Galveston, Freeport, Port Aransas, and Port Mansfield, among others.

In November, wear jeans and a shirt and a hoodie. If you have a water repellent jacket, that will be perfect.

Getting out is the key, if you find a local guide help you understand what fish is doing for the season. There’s different types of bait for the different species. Have fun don’t stress if there’s no catch at first, it is a pleasant process when reeling in your fish. ?

Captain Aaron was super helpful with instructions and recommendations on how to improve your opportunities if catching fish. All you need is a hat, sunscreen, snacks and beverages, and a fishing attitude while paying attention to the captain. You should be able to catch some redfish or trout, & perhaps some black drum.

Understand that it may be very, very cold. We wnet at this exact same time last year and it was very pleasant. This time of year it could go either way depending on the day.
