Trip Description:

This unique property is located right on Matagorda Bay in downtown Matagorda, TX. The inshore and offshore fishing speaks for itself, and downtown Matagorda is a convenient 3 hours from Austin and 2 from Houston.

Amenities include a pool, hot tub, fire pit, full bar, living room, and kitchen, along with 10 bedrooms (2 with king beds and 8 with full/queen beds), each with its own private bathroom.

The pool looks inviting, but save it 'til you're off the saltwater. The property's location is perfect for bay fishing for redfish and trout in either East or West Matagorda Bay, as well as chasing offshore trophies:

Review Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"This app worked perfectly and My Captain Mr. Larry out of Rockport was very enjoyable and very knowledgeable about fishing and navigating the waters in my boat. He put us on the fish and we just had an all around good trip. John Lester"

John swung by our booth at the Houston Boat Show and was excited to hear about our Navigational Trips. On these trips, our #DamnGoodGuides will hop on your boat to show you a new bay system or to share a few of their spots.

A windy front cancelled the original trip, but thanks to Captain's 100% Trip Guarantee, John and Larry were able to make it happen the following Saturday.

John- thanks for booking with Captain Experiences and for rebooking with us for the Texas Patriot Saltwater Tournament this April!
