Saltwater Fishing in Texas

Texas saltwater fishing, often called the Lone Star State includes offshore, nearshore, and inshore fishing. Offshore angling might consist of trolling or bottom fishing. Trolling produces catches like sailfish, marlin, wahoo, king mackerel, tuna, sharks, and dorado. Deep sea bottom fishing will produce snapper, grouper, and amberjack. Common targets of inshore and nearshore fishing Texas fishing guides are redfish and sea trout.

Billfish are popular catches anywhere they reside. In Texas, this category includes the broadbill swordfish, the sailfish, the blue marlin, and the white marlin. Billfish are famous for their amazing battles and their immense size. The state record blue marlin tipped the scales at 876.5 pounds. The other species are smaller, but they’re still hefty fish with a powerful capacity for runs and fighting ability. To land one of these prizes, choose one of the Texas charter fishing boats that specialize in billfish.

The wahoo is another fish that’s incredibly fun and exciting to catch. According to many experts, they’re the fastest fish in the sea. Once hooked, the wahoo will make line-sizzling runs. The state record wahoo in Texas weighed in at 124 pounds. Big wahoo can take a while to land, but you’ll enjoy every second of the experience.

Dorado is a favorite catch while trolling offshore. Also called “mahi mahi” or “dolphin,” these are beautiful fish that are strong fighters, and they’re great on the table, too. The Texas state record dorado weighed in at 65.7 pounds and measured over 5 ½ feet in length. Texas charter boats know how to put you on the dorado.

Deep sea bottom fishing might not be quite as exciting as trolling for billfish, but it’s still fun, and it’s a great way to put really fresh, delicious fish on the table. Texas is home to several species of grouper, including the black, the comb, the marbled, the snowy, the Warsaw, the yellowfin, the yellow edge, and the yellowmouth. There’s also the giant among grouper species – the goliath grouper, sometimes called the “jewfish.” These fish are absolutely enormous! The state record in Texas weighed a whopping 551 pounds. Imagine wrestling that big boy from the ocean floor!

Another fish you’ll probably catch while deep sea fishing in Texas is the snapper. This is another tasty fish that’s well represented in the state. Species here include the black, the blackfin, the red, the vermillion, the dog, the gray, the lane, the mutton, the queen, the silk, the yellowtail, and the huge cubera. The largest cubera snapper ever recorded in Texas weighed 131 pounds.

Fishing charters in Texas include true charter boats and party boats. Charter boats usually take only four to six anglers at a time, while large party boats might take as many as 50 fishermen at the time. Texas charter boats are generally swift vessels that specialize in trolling, while party boats are for bottom fishing.
