Airboat Fishing at Bay Flats

Spot a vast array of wildlife and link up with redfish in pristine ecosystems no other boats can access.
Explore Over 7,000 Acres of Coastal Marshland

EXPLORE THE MARSH VIA AIRBOAT

The fishing is awesome, but the journey to get to the fish might be just as cool—making airboat redfishing a great option for families and groups of anglers with varying skill levels. Plus, airboat fishing doesn’t require the pre-dawn wake-up like fly and gear fishing so you can sleep in and still have an action-packed day.

The saltwater back-lakes and creeks that are situated throughout Matagorda Island make the central region of the Texas coast distinct from other waters in our state. This coastal marsh country consists of more than 7,300 acres of shallow water that’s only accessible by airboat, making it a true mecca for fish and wildlife.

We’ll wind our way through this pristine ecosystem, spotting gators, deer, wild hogs, coyotes, turkey, and whooping cranes along the way. If you’re a nature lover, airboat redfishing needs to be on your “to-do list” of outdoor activities, and you won’t find a better place to make such a memorable trip happen.
