Freeport Fishing Charters

Freeport is a hidden gem. Nestled in between oil offloading sites and chemical plants, Freeport may not look like a vacation destination at first glance. However, the fishing Freeport has access too produce fish year round. Just a short drive from Houston, Freeport is a perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city and get on the water. Just a quick boat ride down the Brazos River is the vast Gulf of Mexico. Nearshore artificial reefs hold great tasting fish year round, while pelagic giants roam the offshore waters. Head Inshore and great backcountry fishing grounds await.

Freeport Inshore Fishing Charters

The Brazos River gives Freeport fishing boats access to incredible backcountry and bay fishing. To the east lies Christmas Bay, and further up the coast, West Bay and Galveston Bay. To the southwest, true backcountry fishing awaits in Saint Bernard Wildlife Refuge and East Matagorda Bay. These waters are known for producing big fish. In September massive Redfish are caught during their spawn. East Matagorda Bay is famous for being Speckled Trout haven. If you want to get in on the Speckled Trout, the bite on on fire in January. The action doesn't stop there though. Gulf Flounder, Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle and other inshore species are ready to fight.

Freeport Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Leaving land behind and heading out to sea means shots at a slew of different species. In nearshore artificial reefs and wrecks, Red Snapper reign supreme. One of the best tasting fish in the sea, these formidable fighters have a special season to prevent overfishing. Check out our Red Snapper blog to plan your trip. The nearshore fun continues with big Cobia, a variety of grouper and snapper variants, and Amberjack. The water gets deep quick, so getting to the prime fishing waters is just a short boat ride away. Further offshore, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Swordfish, and the occasional Marlin can be caught. Catching these pelagic monsters usually happens where the continental shelf ends and the water gets very deep, so strap in for a long boat ride out to the best fishing grounds in the gulf.
