Freeport Fishing Charter Overview

Looking for a serene fishing experience in a tranquil town? Look no further than Freeport, Texas, where you can embark on a fishing charter and explore the Brazos River, wildlife refuges, and the Gulf of Mexico all in one day. With a variety of fishing grounds available, you can tailor your adventure to the specific fish you're after, whether it's Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin, or more.

Depending on your desired time on the water and fishing ambitions, you can choose between half-day trips to inshore waters and marshes, or full-day trips to the deep blue. Fishing charters are readily available along the Old Brazos River, Oyster Creek, and Surfside, so you can easily find the perfect one for your needs.

It's important to note that all individuals aged 17 or older must purchase a fishing license, regardless of whether they're booking a charter or fishing on their own.

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.

Deep Sea Fishing Charters in Freeport

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.

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.

    We had some free time while in Houston and booked a last minute fishing trip with Captain Leb. He was not able to take us out but set us up with Captain Colton. Captain Leb was very responsive and professional in making sure that everything was set up smoothly for us. And our trip with Captain Colton was great, had a great time catching a variety of fish. I highly recommend both Captain Leb and Captain Colton.

    Captions Liam and Cole were amazing! They helped guide and create a fun atmosphere for our family. It was our first trip so some of us were a bit nervous, but they helped calm the nerves and make it a great trip for all of us! Even for our foreign exchange student from Kazakhstan had a blast! They helped the kids catch the fish by themselves but also made sure to help when needed! Great crew and great company! Would recommend to anyone and everyone 110%!

    My name is Lonnie and I booked a trip with Captain Experiences. A simple 4 Hour fishing tour out of Galveston Texas. It was set up and ready to go I received an email on the morning of the trip saying everything was good to go. We drove 3 hours to the location that was provided. We arrived and waited until after 6:00 AM. Nobody ever showed up. I called the only phone number provided by Captain Experiences nobody answered. Finally we found the Captains phone number on Facebook and called him. He let us know that the trip was canceled yesterday and I ask why I was not notified at all? A simple text-email-phone call could have changed everything for my family and I. My suggestion to Captain Experiences is give everyone the Captains information so the trip can be verified the day before. Sorry I would not recommend this company to anyone!

    Capitan Morgan and Colton were a blast! It felt like I was catching them as soon as the bait hit the water. The pair were also very easy to talk to. It felt like we were fishing with friends. They were so helpful, did a great job all the way around. I felt like I learned new things about the fish and the area. They also did a great job cleaning the fish and giving helpful tips on how to cook the catch of the day. While all this praise about the two mentioned above I hope it won't overshadow how great the fishing actually was. My husband catch his biggest catch while on this fishing trip! This was a surprise birthday celebration for my father in law, and he absolutely loved it. It was his first time going on a charter, and I can garentee we will be back again. My husband and I have been on several fishing charters, and this one definitely was one of the best. I'd highly recommend going here for your next fishing trip!

    Great experience from start to finish. We had a lot of fun on our fishing trip. Captain Leb was very knowledgeable and had everything we needed for the day. He helped teach all of us the ins and outs to catching reds and flounder. He even stopped in to this spot where we got burgers and he cleaned all of the catch we had. We will definitely be back again! Thanks!!
