Get ready for an epic 24-hour Offshore adventure with Captains JT and Danny chasing the big boys like Marlin, Tile Fish, Grouper, and Tuna! You will launch from Freeport around 10 am aboard their one-of-a-kind sport fisher for a luxury seafaring experience. At 38 feet long and almost 14 feet wide, the vessel offers lots of shaded space, two AC systems, satellite TV and music, and a legendary hull design. Needless to say, you will be much more comfortable than on most other boats. It’s equipped with state-of-the-art electronics, safety equipment including a satellite phone, epirb, and 8 man life raft. The beautiful vessel is powered by twin 420 horsepower Yanmar diesel engines that are meticulously maintained by Captain JT. After Captain JT has cranked up the engines, you'll motor offshore a ways to spend the day bottom fishing for Grouper, Golden tile, Amberjack and whatever else emerges from the blue depths! When the bite slows down toward the afternoon, Captains JT and Danny will haul in the lines, and motor out a little deeper to the 80-110 mile range. While you get some much-needed R&R, they will get the boat into position for the Tuna bite early the next morning. The Tuna bite is usually on a couple of hours before sunrise, so after a couple of hours of sleep, you'll wake up around 4 am to start jigging for Tuna! This is one of the only times slots when big tuna come up from the deep to feed and they are usually swimming back down to deeper water by the time the sun comes up.

What is cobia fishing in Freeport all about?

Cobia fishing in Freeport offers anglers an exciting opportunity to target these powerful and prized game fish in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Also known as ling or lemonfish, cobia are known for their impressive size, strength, and delicious flesh, making them a sought-after catch among anglers of all levels. Found in both nearshore and offshore waters, cobia can be encountered around reefs, wrecks, jetties, and floating structures throughout the Freeport area.

One effective technique for cobia fishing in Freeport is sight fishing, particularly around nearshore structures such as jetties or buoys where cobia often congregate. Anglers scan the surface for cobia cruising near the surface or swimming alongside other marine life, such as rays or turtles. Once spotted, anglers can cast live bait such as eels, pinfish, or blue runners, or artificial lures such as swimbaits or bucktail jigs to entice strikes from these powerful predators.

In addition to sight fishing, anglers in Freeport can also target cobia using bottom fishing techniques around offshore reefs, wrecks, and oil rigs. Drifting or anchoring near structure and presenting live bait on heavy tackle can entice strikes from hungry cobia. Anglers must be prepared for strong and determined fights when hooked into a cobia, as these fish are known for their powerful runs and acrobatic leaps. With its abundance of nearshore and offshore fishing opportunities, Freeport promises anglers an exhilarating cobia fishing experience amidst the scenic beauty of the Texas Gulf Coast.

What are the most popular months to fish for cobia fishing in Freeport?

In Freeport, cobia seasons offer anglers distinct periods of opportunity to target these prized game fish in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. While cobia can be found in Freeport's waters throughout the year, certain seasons present more favorable conditions for successful encounters. Generally, the peak seasons for cobia fishing in Freeport coincide with the warmer months of late spring through early fall when these fish are more abundant and active along the coast and in offshore waters.

During the spring months, cobia migrate along the coast, following warmer water temperatures and baitfish migrations. As they move into nearshore and offshore waters, cobia become more accessible to anglers in areas such as reefs, wrecks, jetties, and floating structures. This period offers prime conditions for sight fishing, as cobia can often be spotted cruising near the surface or swimming alongside other marine life.

As summer progresses into fall, cobia fishing in Freeport remains productive, with these fish continuing to patrol the coastal and offshore waters in search of prey. Anglers may need to adapt their tactics as water temperatures fluctuate and baitfish behavior changes, but opportunities to encounter cobia persist throughout the season. By understanding the seasonal movements and behaviors of cobia, anglers can maximize their chances of success and enjoy thrilling battles with these powerful and elusive predators in Freeport's productive fishing grounds.

What techniques are popular for catching cobia in Freeport?

Cobia fishing in Freeport demands a blend of strategic techniques to attract and successfully hook these powerful game fish. One effective method is sight fishing, particularly around nearshore structures such as jetties, buoys, or floating debris where cobia often gather. Anglers scan the surface for cobia cruising near the surface or swimming alongside other marine life, such as rays or turtles. Once spotted, anglers can cast live bait such as eels, pinfish, or blue runners, or artificial lures such as swimbaits or bucktail jigs to entice strikes from these powerful predators.

In addition to sight fishing, anglers in Freeport can target cobia using bottom fishing techniques around offshore reefs, wrecks, and oil rigs. Drifting or anchoring near structure and presenting live bait on heavy tackle can also attract strikes from hungry cobia. Anglers must be prepared for strong and determined fights when hooked into a cobia, as these fish are known for their powerful runs and acrobatic leaps. Using stout rods and reels equipped with high-strength line is essential for handling the intense fights that cobia are famous for.

Another effective technique for cobia fishing in Freeport is trolling. Anglers can troll along the edges of reefs, channels, or baitfish schools with diving plugs, spoons, or skirted lures to entice strikes from cruising cobia. Varying the speed and depth of the trolling presentation can increase the chances of encountering cobia, especially when targeting them in deeper waters or areas with strong currents. With a combination of sight fishing, bottom fishing, and trolling techniques, anglers can maximize their chances of success when targeting cobia in Freeport's productive fishing grounds.

What other species are popular in Freeport?

Aside from targeting cobia, Freeport offers anglers a diverse array of other species to pursue, ensuring a rich and varied fishing experience. One notable species is the red snapper, renowned for its firm flesh and challenging fight. Red snapper inhabit the offshore reefs, wrecks, and oil rigs around Freeport, where they feed on a variety of prey including fish, crustaceans, and squid. Anglers often target red snapper using bottom fishing techniques with live bait such as squid, cut bait, or small fish, as well as artificial lures like jigs or soft plastics.

Another sought-after species in Freeport is the king mackerel, known for its powerful runs and aggressive strikes. King mackerel can be found in both nearshore and offshore waters, particularly around reefs, wrecks, and bait schools. Anglers targeting king mackerel often use trolling techniques with diving plugs, spoons, or skirted baits to entice strikes. Live bait fishing with live pogies, blue runners, or mullet can also be effective for enticing king mackerel to bite.

Additionally, anglers in Freeport can target a variety of offshore species, including mahi-mahi, grouper, tuna, and wahoo, among others. Venturing offshore to reefs, wrecks, and oil rigs provides anglers with opportunities to encounter these hard-fighting and delicious species using techniques such as trolling, bottom fishing, and jigging. With its rich biodiversity and abundance of fishing opportunities, Freeport promises anglers an unforgettable fishing experience along the Texas Gulf Coast.

    The guide was not inviting. He never introduced himself and had no concern for our well being. We had two guests who were sea sick and he never showed any concern. While he did finally agree to bring them back to shore, his lack of respect for us as customers and human beings was not professional.
