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.

It is hot on the water, bring lots to drink - water, soda and gaterade. Snacks are a good idea to keep your energy up.

Here's a revised version for you: "I recently went on a guided fishing trip with Captain John at Lake Buchanan, and it was an amazing experience. We were able to catch a variety of fish including striped bass, white bass, and black bass. Captain John was a knowledgeable and experienced guide who knew exactly where to find the fish. Overall, it was a fantastic trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves fishing and wants to learn from a pro!"

Weather was perfect, not as humid not salty as expected. We stayed in Surfside at a great rental and ate at Seahorse Bar & Grill. Rental was fabulous and grill was also very good - right on the beach. Great time in Freeport.

Make sure you talk to your captain before you go. He or she is going to make or break your trip.

The weather is not too hot yet. Try to avoid the tournaments. Our guide knew where one was and asked us to meet him at a different location to avoid the crowds.

The captain takes care of every part of fishing. We caught a bunch of fish we never see in Kansas. We saw dolphins on the way to our fishing spots.

Understand that fishing is mostly about conditions, the angler’s skill, and then luck. The only thing a guide can do is get you onto fish. It’s up to you to hook them and reel them in. Catching fish is never guaranteed so go in with the right expectations and you will have a wonderful day and hopefully catch something to eat for dinner.
