Capt. Dave's Reel Deal Charters

If you’re looking for a friendly, knowledgeable, and an experienced captain to show you the best fishing that Port Isabel, Texas has to offer, look no further than Captain David Naranjo of Capt. Dave’s Reel Deal Charters!

He has over 20 years of experience and 80% of his business are returning customers. Clients come back because they catch fish and because the captain is equally patient with kids, novice adults, and experienced anglers. Capt. Dave will work hard to make your day fishing with him fun and memorable.

Your boat will be a dry and smooth sailing 20’ Shallow Stalker 204 Pro bay boat powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. It can cater to up to 5 anglers and comes equipped with a bow tower, center tower, a power pole, VHF radio, livewell, and ice chests with ice. It even features a JBL sound system.

You’ll be fishing with what works the best and the captain knows all the tricks of the trade. He will take you fishing after whatever is biting at a particular time of a particular day. Capt. Dave will take you fishing with lures, top-waters, spoons, live shrimp on corks, live croaker, skipping mullet on the surface and drifting with cut bait on the bottom.

He’s prepared to do at least two of the listed techniques to make your day out on the water fun and most importantly catch fish. And the list of your potential catch includes Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Black Drum, Flounder, and Spotted Seatrout.

You’ll be supplied with top-notch fishing gear by premier brands such as Shimano, Penn, and St. Croix. Lures are also included in the price, as well as live bait, that will be waiting for you on the boat. All you have to do is buy a fishing license before the trip ($16 for non-residents and $11 for Texas residents).

So book a trip because Captain David Naranjo is the “reel deal” and he’ll do everything for you to reel in the catch of a lifetime!

I've lived in the South Padre Island area my whole life. Fishing is something I started doing really young, when I was around eight years old, since 1995. I would catch small Perch and Catfish in nearby resacas. Later on, I started fishing saltwater and never went back to fresh. I have had three boats and the boat I have now is my best one ever. Since I used to be a math teacher, I can say I'm great with kids and they're more than welcome on my trips.
