Fin Tastic Coastal Charters



Guide's Boat

We guide on a 2020 24' Tran Sport Boat 240 SVT Cat. It's a shallow water power cat boat designed for fishing in the Matagorda Bay system. It's powered by a 300 HP Suzuki Outboard motor. Plenty of space for a comfortable trip for up to 4 fishermen.

Description

Stan Sloan is a licensed United States Coast Guard Captain with over 35 years of strong guiding experience on Matagorda Bay. He's licensed with the state of Texas to offer guided fishing trips on the Texas Coastal Bay System. He has the firsthand knowledge to ensure that you have an exciting and successful fishing trip on the East and West Matagorda Bay. If you're looking for a fun day on the water catching fish, look no further.

Capt. Sloan’s favorite thing to do is to wade for trophy trout on Matagorda Bay. However, he also offers fishing on his 2020 24' Tran Sport Boat 240 SVT Cat rigged out with a 300HP Suzuki motor, trolling motor, VHF radio and commercial life jackets for a safe adventure to and from fishing spots. Artificial baits are the most productive and best baits on Matagorda Bay throughout the year. However, during the summer fishing usually requires natural baits such as live shrimp for a successful day of catching.

On full day Matagorda Bay fishing trips, we spend about 8 hours on the water. While our half day trips last around 5 hours. This is Captain Stan's favorite area of the Texas Gulf Coast to fish. Miles and miles of open bay and shorelines with productive reefs. We launch out of Matagorda Harbor for easy access to our fishing areas. Capt. Stan has been featured in Saltwater Sportsman Magazine, Texas Outdoors Journal, Gulf Coast Fisherman, and on The Outdoors Channel. He has won numerous tournaments in Matagorda including the coveted 2018 Lower Colorado Bays Guides Cup for the heaviest stringer.

You must bring your own rod, reel and wading gear if you're going on our guided wade trip. However, when fishing on our boat we provide G. Loomis spinning rods with Penn reels for great light tackle action. Other than his guiding services on West Matagorda Bay and East Matagorda Bay, he's also a fishing guide on Colorado River. Other than fishing charters on Matagorda Bay, he also offers bird watching, group events, scenery tours and eco tours.
