About Your Trip

Climb aboard Captain Leaf Potter's 30' Twin Vee Catamaran and enjoy the amazing deep-sea experience of Texas Fishing Charters. Freeport is lucky enough to be surrounded between the extensive Galveston Bay systems and the very popular Matagorda Bay, which is very chilled out. This type of surrounding means that you will not have to go very far to catch some of the most amazing and beautiful fish. Healthy populations of Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Redfish are all waiting at a short distance making this area the perfect destination for a half-day adventure. Not to mention the 30' Twin Vee hull shape and twin Yamaha engines cut through the surf making for a smoother and quicker ride out to the blue deep, and everyone knows, less travel time leads to more fishing time!

For a half-day adventure, you can expect to fish the Galveston Bay system, and or potentially pop out to anywhere from 9-20 miles off shore to fish for red snapper, shark, king mackerel, tarpon, Mahi Mahi, and a plethora of other fish The Gulf has to offer (the deeper you go the more variety in species).

This trip is perfect for just about everyone. Whether you’re male, female, young or old, doesn’t actually matter – everyone loves the feel of the wind in their hair and a day out on the open waters off the coast of Texas. Not to mention Captain Leaf will provide all the equipment, bait, water, ice and anything else within his power to make sure you have a fun, successful, and safe trip. So all you need to bring is your sunglasses, sunscreen, and Texas fishing license and Captain Leaf will take care of the rest!

Great trip. Caught three bull redfish, threw one back. Also threw the black tip shark back that we caught. Very personable and experienced captain and crew. We would definitely recommend them and will book them again when we return.
