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.

Book a charter and talk to your Captain about local establishments, restaurants and public fishing spots. Our Captain (Captain Reyes with Lucky 7 Guide Services) was very helpful and knowledgeable. We are glad we booked our trip shortly after our arrival in Palacios.

Be sure to take water and sunscreen. The breeze on the water is great but it is still very hot. We brought sandwiches each time just to have something to munch on.

Sometimes the fishing is hard. If it were easy you are at the grocery store. Enjoy it anyway. Don't make it a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Next year I’ll book two shorter trips with Texas fishing charters instead of one long one. But that’s just so that I can spend two nights at Katie’s Restaurant eating the fish Capt Zack puts me on top of

Fishing was great, just check to see what Saturday the fishing tournament in May is going to be on. Would have fished Saturday also, but did not want all the chaos from 400 boats fishing in the bay.

We came to Corpus Christi because my dad did his flight training at the NAS, but the quality of fishing completely blew us away. We did a full day charter and then fished on our own for two more days, and we had an absolute blast. Lots of different areas to fish and very good accessibility to public waters.

I would absolutely recommend angler fishing for the first time in Aransas Pass! It was my first time and I’m already planning another trip back in July. I’m from Florida originally and I felt like I was at home. Great place to go angler fishing for the first time.

Hybrid's were full of shad in mid April, but later in April would likely be better. Only had to through one of four back due to size. Catfish are always plentiful and good to eat.

Familiars yourself with your fishing location and make sure you tip them. Jerry and Brian the Deck Hand work their butts off and I tipped them more than my budget allowed. When you get good work pay them accordingly.
