5 Hour Trips

“Most of the world is covered by water. A fisherman’s job is simple: Pick out the best parts.” -Charles Waterman

Summer 5 Hour Trips

This the perfect trip for first timers, kids, and everyone else who wants to fish offshore but only for a half day! The Summer 5 Hour Trips will start Memorial Day Weekend, and end Labor Day Weekend. All of our our 5 hour trips will be an afternoon trip that usually departs after the morning 8 hour trip returns. Times will vary from 3 pm to 4 pm daily during the summer.  These trips will usually be targeting kingfish while drift fishing near shore, but during red snapper season we will be targeting only red snapper, but will not have time to catch anything else. Due to time limitations these trips can be hit or miss. For better chances at catching fish we recommend booking our 8 hour fishing trip. Check the Book Now link below to see our availability on our interactive calendar as well as current pricing. Call (361) 749-5597 for more details and private charters.

These tours accommodate up to 39 people max. Please bring a valid Texas Saltwater Fishing License, and cash for the concession and tipping of the crew. No coolers or outside drinks will be allowed on board,  you may bring a bagged lunch if you would like.

winter State Water 5 Hour Trips

We will now offer a shorter offshore trip for our winter customers in the Winter 5 Hour Trip. The 5 Hour will be a morning trip departing at 8am fishing the jetties and nearby rigs, and will run January-April. They will be targeting sheepshead, red drum, black drum, kingfish, sharks, and the occasional red snapper. These trips will be ran on our state water boat the Kingfisher so if red snapper are caught they can be legally kept. If you wan to improve your chances on catching fish we recommend brining your own bucket and purchasing live bait either at Deep Sea Headquarters or one of the other local bait stands. Check the Book Now link below to see our availability on our interactive calendar as well as current pricing. Call (361) 749-5597 for more details and private charters.

These tours accommodate up to 39 people max. Please bring a valid Texas Saltwater Fishing License, and cash for the concession and tipping of the crew. Since the boat will be in state waters you are allowed to bring canned beer in a small cooler, and you may also bring a bagged lunch if you would like.
