Capt. Andrew’s Inshore Charters takes you fishing around the waters of Lower Laguna Madre. If you’re looking for year-round fisheries, a local captain and a variety of styles, this is the charter for you. Capt. Andrew knows the local waters and will help you get large table fare to brag about.

You can fish for really big Redfish and Speckeld Trout. There are also Flounder, Snook, and Sharks. Whether it’s sight casting, or fishing the spots with ankle deep waters all the way up to 50 ft deep spots, you can get it all here. As for the techniques, Capt. Andrew offers spinning, baitcasting, fly and trolling combos. You can also head out a bit further and target Kingfish, or Red Snapper in state waters.

Whichever trip you choose, Capt. Andrew will help make your time on the water productive. He’s grown up in South Padre Island, and has picked up a few tricks and tips to help you get a fish of a lifetime. He knows his way around these waterways and will gladly cater to novice anglers and veteran fishermen.

You will be fishing from a 24’ Shallow Sport Boats vessel with a modified Vee. She is equipped with a 200 HP Evinrude E-tec engine and can reach speeds of up to 40 knots. The boat is fitted with GPS, a sonar, and a VHF radio. She has a trolling motor, two live wells, and an ice box, and the required safety gear. Up to six anglers can come along. The boat stores all the fishing gear and accessories, sponsored by Lew’s and Orvis. Children are welcome and there are life jackets for them onboard in two different sizes.

The captain will supply all the gear, lures, and can also provide live bait, at an extra charge. Fly fishing gear is also an option, but you must let the captain know before the trip. Make sure to bring a valid fishing license, a cap, sunglasses, food and drinks of choice, sunblock, and light clothes. Remember to bring your camera to get a nice photo of your day. Once you’re ready, hop onboard and let Capt. Andrew lead the way.
