Head out to Freeport, Texas if you’re in for a true fishing adventure and pay a visit to Captain Rodney of Oilfield Outkasts. Captain Rodney will show you various reefs and wrecks, all brimming with quality fish and surrounded by beautiful nature.
Fishing in this nearshore zone with Captain Rodney Harper is a great trip for anyone who hasn’t been offshore fishing and wants to wet their feet, but also great for the experienced fisherman who doesn't want to be pounded by the surf that hauling 50 miles out demands!
Captain Rodney will help you chase Trophy Bull Red (Red Drum), Shark, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper, Catfish, Trout, and more, depending on the time of year. You might even get a surprise and catch a Ling or a Mahi Mahi. For these 5-hour trips, Captain Rodney uses his 27’ Center Console which provides a truly great fishing experience! These trips are great for families - Captain Rodney loves teaching little ones about the various species that call the Gulf of Mexico home.
Make sure to bring a valid Texas fishing license as well as snacks and drinks of your choice (no glass). Oilfield Outkasts will provide the rest - rods, reels, tackle, and an icebox for your day’s catch.
Enjoy your day on the water with Captain Rodney and Oilfield Outkasts!

When Captain Rodney Harper of Oilfield Outkasts was laid off in May 2016 from the oilfield, his son was also diagnosed with cancer. He immediately had to find an alternative resource to support his family.
He had owned his 27' Catamaran, "Revelry", since 2012 and figured he'd have to sell her to make ends meet. Instead, Captain Rodney's wife told him that he should put the boat to work given his love of fishing.
And the rest is history! In the first 5 months of 2016 Oilfield Outkasts fished over 1,000 customers, and now, Captain Rodney & Co. have 6 boats in the fleet!
Captain Rodney and Eric were awesome. They put us on Blacktips immediately. My 13 year old got to reel in his first shark and we will never forget it. Can’t wait to go out with them again in the future. 5 stars all the way. Thank you guys.
These guys are as good as it gets. It took us a bit to get on the fish , Rodney was doing everything he could to get us to them and when he did, it didn’t disappoint. I’ve been on charters off all three coasts and this was definitely one of the best experiences I’ve had. We won’t be shopping around for future trips, we have found our crew.
Full day with Rodney Harper and crew. Limits of big Kings and Red Snapper. A bull red and lots of shark. Awesome! The best!
Had a great fishing trip with Captain Rodney and first mate Aaron. The weather man missed the mark and the water was pretty choppy, but Captain Rodney handled it like a pro. It was the first time in the gulf for my daughters and mom and they all they had a blast! We caught shark, kingfish, red snapper, and catfish. It was a wonderful trip and we will definitely be calling them again!
