High Tide Adventures - Aransas Pass

430 Ransom Road
Aransas Pass TX, United States

High Tide Adventures welcomes you down to Aransas Pass, and invites you aboard for a day of great fishing, exploring the famous Texas Gulf Coast in search of top inshore species such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. On calm days, you will also have the chance to head further afield to fish for Snapper, Kingfish, Cobia, and more!

Captain Troy’s 23’ Majek Illusion M2 flats boat was purpose-built in 2017 to make the most of the endless shallows and backwaters which have made Aransas Pass famous among anglers in the know. She is shallow-drafted enough to follow tailing fish wherever they lead, and features a silent Minn Kota i-pilot trolling motor to make sure they will never know you are following them.

The vessel is also capable of hitting deeper waters, though, as long as the weather is calm. She cruises at up to 50 knots to get you to the best spots in no time, and comes equipped with the latest Garmin electronics, so you will know as soon as you are there. Wherever you choose to fish, high quality fishing tackle for anything from gigging to fly fishing will make sure you get the job done.

So whether you want a day in the shallows wrestling in big Bull Reds and monster Trout, are looking to head offshore in search of some tasty Snapper and Cobia, or seek the ultimate thrill of fly fishing for huge Tarpon, High Tide Adventures has the equipment and the know-how to get it done. Captain Troy has been fishing his whole life, and knows every inch of the waters he will guide you through.

All trips come with tackle, bait, and lures, as well as a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch at the end of the day - just remember to bring a saltwater fishing license for anyone aged 17 or over, and the biggest cooler you can find, to stuff full of delicious fish!

About the Captain

Troy Butler
Aransas Pass, Texas, United States
Member since August 2016
My fishing experience runs deep in our family. As a five year old boy, I learned quickly about techniques for fishing large reds and specs. My father was a guide out of Aransas Pass for many years. I am a pro-staff member with Nacho Daddys Spoons, and 3JD Lures, and love showing their abilities. I truly enjoy showing clients the techniques, that I've learned over the years, and have been passed down to me from three different generations of fishermen. Let me show you a side of the saltwater mist don't know exist. I am a USCG & TPWD certified captain. Come check out our sites at www.hightideadventures.com

Thank you for the kind words. The weather definitely wasn’t on our side, but super glad we got some nice fish.
