All I can say is “BAD ASS TRIP” with Captain Tyler it’s not fishing it’s catching. From the introduction and the sunset boat ride to the fish cleaning session and our good byes, my friend and I, with our three sons had one of the best and memorable times ever. Before we even limited out, we were already planning our next trip with Captain Tyler

Epic fishing trip! Friends and family fishing is good but fishing with the Oilfield Outkast charter is great. Extremely professional crew (Capt. James) with extensive experience. They separate the real from the fake; they blow the competition out of the water. I give them two thumbs up, 5 stars, and a 100% recommendation.

This small last minute half-day trip for my dad and I was perfect. Capt. Robert was very professional and put us in all the right spots for fish. His communication leading up to the trip was spot on, especially with us being unfamiliar with the area and threatening rain chance, it really made a big difference. We will definitely choose him again!! Thanks to Captain Experience for setting this up!

Capt Marshall did an excellent job of putting us on the fish ! We started out in the surf but got tossed around pretty good. The capt. made the decision to take us inland to the Brazos river where we moved around a bit while catching a wide verity of keepers including a tagged bull red , speckled trout , flounders and others enough to fill the cooler box ! All in all , fantastic morning of fishing inshore. Thanks Capt Marshall !

Everything You Need to Know About Freeport, Texas Fishing

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.

Things to do in Freeport

Freeport is an excellent vacation destination for the nature lover. You can visit the Brazoria Wildlife Refuge for more up close encounters with nature, or visit the local bars and restaurants to wind down after your day on the water. Just a short drive to the coast and you'll be looking at beautiful white sand beaches, perfect for a day of fun in the sun. It's tough to find a better location for a low-key weekend getaway.
