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.

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Texas

Very different than a traditional charter fishing trip, gulf is very shallow so you cast the entire time. You have to get a good captain that can teach novice fishermen how to cast and reel. Don’t cheap out or you’ll have a tough 5 hours

Lots of dolphins were out playing near the offshore jetty that was cool to see and the boat that was near us caught a black tip. We got on a big drum and we got on a bunch of reds and a small drum near one of the bridges overall Zack was amazing.

Corpus is a prime destination for fishing in Texas. 5 hour trips are good in the Summer because it can get hot.

Perfect time for hybrids and sand bass but maybe May 11 is a bit early for crappie. Be prepared to be flexible if your objective is to catch fish.

The temperature was great but the wind was a problem and kept us nearer to the shore than we liked. Weather in May is varied so you just have to keep that in mind.

Come to Wills to fish northern Lake Conroe, it’s laid-back, with low boat traffic and very pristine. The primary target during May is catfish and you can cast to them and they do put up a fight ranging in size from 2 to 3 pounds. The captain will fillet your catch, but you also have the option to take them home and clean them yourself if you want get more from your catch. Enjoy!
