Offshore Charters

your escape from the ordinary

At Matagorda Sportfishing, we pride ourselves with both quality and quantity. Our goal is to provide our clients with the trip of a lifetime with a full day of offshore action.

Captain Mark Holland is a fully licensed United States Coast Guard Captain and is with 18 years of experience fishing the offshore waters of the Texas Coast. Matagorda Sportfishing is also a fully National Marine Fisheries Service permitted charter service with HMS Permits. We fish a 36 ft Contender with triple Yamaha 4-Strokes, which is fast, comfortable and safe. We are one of the biggest and fastest charter boats in Matagorda. More speed, more time to fish! Contender Boats are a quality vessel with excellent rough water capabilities. We get you to the fish faster, comfortable and safe, therefore giving our customers more time to fish. We provide our clients with Ocean-Tamer Marine Grade Bean Bag chairs for a comfortable ride to the fishing grounds. We provide offshore trips out of Matagorda, Texas and we are based out of Matagorda Harbor.

We work closely with Gray Taxidermy out of Florida to provide our clients with the absolute best and realistic fish replica mounts if a customer wants to purchase a replica mount to forever remember their catch. Rates will vary based on species and size of fish.

Owned and Operated by Mark and Kelly Holland, we are one of the biggest and most comfortable charter boats in Matagorda. Our boat is tournament equipped with Simrad and Furuno Electronics with 3k watts of fishing finding power, Sirius XM Radio and all safety equipment including a life raft, EPIRB and all required USCG safety equipment. If you are looking for an offshore adventure and a Captain and deckhand who works hard for you, then give Matagorda Sportfishing a call or submit a message via our contact us page.
