About Your Trip

Head on down to Freeport Texas and experience an action-packed day of fishing with Captain Rodney Harper of Oilfield Outcasts!

Fish Freeport’s backwaters either from Captain Rodney’s boat or wading (up to you) for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Mangrove Snapper, and Sheepshead. Capt. Rodney Harper and his crew are some of the best on the Texas coast. They are known to fill the ice chest with a plethora of fish.

For these 5-hour (half-day) and 8-hour (full day) trips, Captain Rodney uses his 24′ Haynie Cat “Kickoff Point” which can operate at top speed in 9″ of water. It will provide 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). If you choose to go wade fishing, bring waders and wading boots with you. Oilfield Outcasts 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 Outcasts!

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!
