About the Trip

Typically trips leave Matagorda harbor anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour before dark, and last anywhere from 3.5 to 5 hours. I will have cold water and Gatorade in a cooler on board, but feel free to bring your own reasonable sized cooler (most bring a soft sided style) that will stow easily on the boat and is not too heavy. Bring or wear appropriate clothing for the trip. The Texas weather can be ever changing so dress accordingly and keep in mind that it can be cooler on the water than it is on land. I have plenty of mosquito spray on board. If you have questions regarding proper attire for your trip, please ask and I will let you know what I recommend.

You will need a valid Texas "All Waters" fishing license.

Upon our arrival back at the harbor, the flounder will be “headed” and washed so you can prepare them using your favorite method!

Be sure to have additional cooler with ice for your catch :-)

Thank you for the opportunity of doing business with you, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
