Capt. Joe Foster Bay City, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Here at Foster Guide Service, our mission is to give you an opportunity to have a magnificent day out on the waters of Matagorda Bay. We will strive to give you the best saltwater fishing charter in Texas. We offer wading and drifting trips for anglers of all experience levels and pride ourselves in providing the absolute best customer service to each and every client.


Joe Foster will be your captain as you explore the coastal waters of Texas searching for your next catch. Capt. Joe has vast knowledge of the big fish that swim the local waters and the different techniques used to catch them. Capt. Joe is a very friendly captain who will try his very best to make sure each trip with him is nothing short of successful. 


Trips with us will have you fishing in Matagorda Bay, which means you could end up exploring the fishing grounds near Collegeport, Palacios, Port Alto, Olivia, Point Comfort, Port Lavaca, Magnolia Beach, Indianola, Port O’Conner, and many other locations in this fisherman’s paradise. 


Your outdoor fishing charter adventure begins the moment you hop aboard Capt. Joe’s 23ft bay boat that is powered by a 250 hp Suzuki engine. This boat is fully rigged for inshore fishing in Texas. You will find all the proper safety equipment including life jackets, fire extinguishers, first aid, and a crew that is trained in CPR. She has all the latest fish finding and navigational equipment. 


We offer full day trip covering the Matagorda Bay and East Matagorda Bay. All trips include the use of our rods, reels, and tackle. Bait will be available to purchase at an additional cost and a Texas fishing license will be needed before the trip. 


The Matagorda Bay is filled with exciting species, but the two we love to target the most are Redfish and Spotted Seatrout. The fishing techniques we use to catch these fish are drift fishing, spinning, and light tackle fishing. 


Don’t miss out on a great day of fishing and relaxation. Book a trip foster Guide Service and Captain Joe Foster today to get started on your fishing adventure!
