Extras: A extreme sound system by Wetsounds. No detail was overlooked in her custom build. She stays indoors in her own barn, the Storm Shack, which is 200 yards from the harbor. This allows her to be clean and ready at all times. Many huge live wells and fish boxes allow for no sacrifices. She has dual row seating so everyone has a comfortable ride, and there is a tuna tower for spotting fish. Top speeds in the 70's with cruising speeds above 40 mph allow us to go where we want to. We can fill the cooler or hunt for that trophy you been looking for.

About Your Guide

The Storm Shack Matagorda Lodge and 42' 2019 Freeman, "Hail Storm", speak for themselves. This lodging / offshore fishing combo is unmatched along the Texas Gulf Coast for good reason.

Storm Shack Matagorda is located right on Matagorda Bay in downtown Matagorda, TX. The inshore fishing for Redfish Speckled Trout, and Flounder and offshore fishing for Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Wahoo is always hot, and downtown Matagorda is only a convenient 3 hours from Austin and 2 from Houston.

Amenities include a pool, hot tub, fire pit, full bar, living room, and kitchen, along with 10 bedrooms (2 with king beds and 8 with full/queen beds), each with its own private bathroom.

The pool looks inviting, but save it 'til you're off the saltwater and back from your wild ride aboard the Hail Storm. The property's location is perfect for bay fishing for Redfish and Speckled Trout out in either East or West Matagorda Bay, as well as chasing offshore trophies aboard the Hail Storm...

The Hail Storm is a brand new 2019 Freeman 42LR with quad 350 Suzuki Outboards. She's fitted with state-of-the-art Simrad electronics, full tank live wells, ample fish boxes, dual row seating, and a tuna tower for spotting fish.
