About Your Trip

Offshore trips (a.k.a deep sea, bluewater) are run outside of 9 miles in US federal waters aboard either “Hitch Life” or “Killing Time”. The distance from shore depends on what fish you want to target. We’ll take you as far as you want to go! Let it be known, the fish usually get bigger the further out you go.

These trips target Red Snapper, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Shark, Grouper, Amberjack, Wahoo, Dorado, Ling, Wahoo, Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, and Yellowfin Tuna.

Specifically, at about 20 to 40 miles from shore, you can fish for Red Snapper, King Mackerel, Grouper, Mahi Mahi (Dorado), Spanish Mackerel, Ling (Cobia), and Shark.

While if you want to go DEEEPER!...

At about 60 to 80 miles out, you can fish for the big boys! Amberjack, Blackfin Tuna, Billfish, Sailfish, Grouper, Wahoo and more!!

Due to the length of the trip and the size of the fish that could be brought on board, 12-hour trips are limited to 4 people per boat. Trips departs at 6AM.

But otherwise, Captain Rodney and his crew will come prepared with all the gear, bait, tackle and water you will need to have a successful adventure out on the open ocean. Meal plans can be coordinated with Capt. Rodney before the trip as well. So bring your favorite beverages, sunscreen, and your Texas fishing license and strap in for an adventure of a lifetime!

About Your Guide

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!

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!
