Arroyo City Fishing Charters

Fish the winding waterways of the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge with Arroyo City Fishing Charters. Under the guidance of Captain Allen Salinas, you’ll follow the fish throughout the day, finding the sweet spots time and time again. With over 40 years of experience, he prides himself on his Redfish knowledge, so expect to catch plenty of the spot-tailed beauty.

Drift along the skinny waters of the bays aboard a 17’ Savage Creek skiff. Compact and complete with a flat bottom and shallow draft, it’s perfect for getting you close to the fish without disturbing them. It doesn’t require much power so the 90 HP Suzuki engine will get you out and on the fish quickly. With all the necessary safety and navigational equipment on board too, you can be confident that you’re in safe hands throughout the trip.

From children to pensioners, first-timers to experienced anglers; everyone is welcome aboard with Capt. Allen. You’ll be out on the fish in less than 20 minutes after leaving the ramp, so you’ll be learning new tricks or showing off your skills right away. Try fishing with artificial lures or catch one on the fly – just bring your own fly fishing equipment. You’re in for an exciting day going after Redfish, Speckled Trout, and even Tarpon, among others.

Up to 3 people are welcome aboard, so bring your loved ones or some close pals for an unforgettable day’s fishing. These rich waters are largely undiscovered, so let Capt. Allen show you the best-kept secrets aboard Arroyo City Fishing Charters. Book now!

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!
