We called the night before and lucked out getting a great fishing trip the next day. We did the 6 hour bay trip, and got 9 redfish and a trout. Captain James Tugwell is outstanding. Great angler and just a fun guy to be with. Ask for him. We got out there earlier than everyone, and were on the fish in 20 minutes. We all limited out by 10 AM and were on our way back to the dock. 61 pounds of fish, turned into 21 pounds of filets. Texas makes it easy to get your license on line, but if you can, get it a week -ten days in advance That way you can get the actual paper license with a tag for fish over 28 inches.

Excellent day on the Coastal Charter’s Jackpot with Captain Jake and Rooster. We caught black fin tuna, large red snapper and king mackerel. Captain Jake seemed to have us on fish all day long. Would highly recommend the off shore trip for those that want to catch game fish. Would definitely do this again.

Went out on March 11th, 2020. On our way out Captain Dorman asked my youngest, “What are you looking to catch today?” He thought for a second and replied, “A good fight.” With 13 king mackerel on the boat you can tell that’s exactly what we got. Excellent captain, crew, and boat. We will be out again with Captain Dorman in a few months for snapper season.

Let me start off by saying Jake our guide was hands-down unbelievable. Jake Took us out on the Jackpot for an eight hour trip. By the end of the eight hour trip we were wishing we had booked a 12. These guys are incredible and know how to get you on the fish and make your trip well worth it! They will definitely be getting our business come early snapper season can’t wait to go out on the jackpot again with Jake. Thank y’all for making our whole trip a damn good time!

When I started looking for an offshore charter out of Port A, I didn't have a specific company in mind. I really lucked out when I called Coastal Charters and they said they had availability on the day I wanted to fish! Originally I booked an 8 hour charter for 4 people. Prior to the trip, Captain Jake Alkire called me and recommended that we upgrade to a 10 hour trip because the prior day, the really good fishing was 60 miles offshore and it takes approximately 2 hours to get out there and 2 hours to get back. He didn't want us to limit our time fishing because he was confident he was going to put us on some fish. After talking it over with my group, we decided to pay extra for the 10 hour trip and I'm SO glad we did! True to his word, Captain Jake put us on the fish and we each caught our limit in Kingfish and also caught some nice size Barracudas as well. We had so much fun that the 10 hour trip only felt like a half day trip. Captain Jake and his deckhand, Chris, were extremely accommodating and helpful and a lot fun to fish with! I would highly recommend Coastal Charters and specifically Captain Jake Alkire.
