If you’re fishing the South Bay, you’ll reach the hottest fishing spots after about 15 minutes. Want more time to prepare for battle? It’ll take around 45 minutes to get to the bountiful North Bay.

You’ll be provided with a variety of top-quality rods and reels, as well as your captain’s own special lures to keep the fish biting. Want to do a spot of fly fishing? Just bring your favorite gear along with you. Come join Capt. Allen onboard South Padre Island Fishing Charters LLC for the angling adventure of a lifetime!

The Co-Founder of Logic Lures, Captain Allen Salinas, has 24 years of experience fishing these local waters and running his charter business. He's been fishing and surfing for over 40 years, ever since he was a kid. Logic Lures was born out of his love for fishing and drive to make better lures that would leave anglers happy. His company is the fastest growing lure company to date, and he is very proud of this! Why did he decide to get into the charter business? In his own words: "I love to fish...and want everyone to experience the thrill of shallow water fishing." He also loves being on the water and teaching people a variety of techniques. Customers love his friendly, can-do attitude, and that he knows exactly where the fish will be biting on any given day. His biggest catch was a Tarpon that measured over a whopping 7 feet!
