Captain Rodney runs the trips for his family-owned and operated charter business based out of Freeport, Texas. Captain Rodney will get you fishing the Gulf nearshore and offshore waters and will work hard to ensure you have a fantastic and fun day out on the water.

Captain Rodney has been a Coast Guard licensed captain since he was 18 years old. He holds a 50 ton masters license, Texas saltwater guides license, the required National Marine Fisheries permits, and is fully insured.

Rodney started working on a charter boat at the age of 10 in the state of Maine, where he grew up living on Mouse Island with his Grandfather Lou. It was here his love for the water and boating all started.

Captain Rodney will be happy to show you the most productive methods to reel in your target species. Techniques include fishing with light tackle, bottom fishing, trolling and drift fishing, and depending on conditions and the time of year you fish, you may find yourself chasing after Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Cobia, Shark, Jack Crevalle, Red Snapper, Redfish, Black Drum, and more. Trips include rods, reels and tackle, live bait, lures, as well as cleaning and filleting of your catch at the end of the day.

We had an amazing time. Rodney and Ethan were not only very helpful and professional, they were friendly and made the trip enjoyable. When the fish we were catching were too small to keep Rodney took us to another spot where we caught larger fish and 3 sharks! I cannot wait to come back. Maybe this will be a yearly trip for us from now on. Great Captain and First Mate.

What a great day we had. Captain Mitch and Deckhand Jerry were exceptional! Well informed, knowledgeable about the fish and the tactics to catch them. They were fun, accommodating and even went out of their way to make me comfortable when I got a little sick.

Great overall experience with Capt. Rodney and Ethan, today 6/11/21 was our 2nd trip with them and they didn't disappoint. They are very helpful and make sure all your needs when come to fishing is taken care of. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting that loves deep sea fishing I searched around when I booked my first trip with him and I have found he has the best and most reviews, not to mention he is very reasonable priced. We are planning our next trip and taking our son on the next one! Thank you Rodney and Ethan it was a pleasure.
