On this trip, you'll be targeting the Texas classics: Redfish and Speckled Trout. These fish are great fighters, and provide a fun challenge for every level of angler. You'll employ a couple of different techniques, including drift fishing, sightcasting on the flats, and jigging the bottom. Whether you're throwing live bait or lures, when these fish hit your line, you'll know it! Bring your A-game and get ready to bring 'em over the rail. Captain Matthew is an expert and is happy to provide all the tips and tricks you need to hook some champions.
You'll be fishing from the deck of Captain Matthew's 24' Shallow Master center console. She sports a 250 HP Suzuki engine, so you'll be on the fish in a hurry. This boat is perfect for the inshore waters off of SPI, where it's typically quite shallow. The vessel also sports all the standard electronics, including GPS and fishfinder, plus a poling platform to give your captain a great vantage point for spotting tailing Reds.
Captain Matthew will provide everything you need for phenomenal trip, including all the rods, reels, bait, and tackle. All you need to remember is proper clothing, sunscreen, a cooler with snacks and drinks, and your Texas fishing license with a saltwater endorsement. Get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
Captain Matthew goes above and beyond to make sure that his clients have the Texas fishing experience of a lifetime. Whether you're an advanced angler looking to set a new personal best, or just looking for a fun family adventure on the water, Captain Matthew will do everything he can to put you on the fish and give you the best opportunities to catch a big one, feel your cooler, or both.
