Angler Squad invites you to explore the inshore waterways of South Padre Island with Captain Sergei Kudryavtsev! The fishing in this area is dynamic, exciting, and lasts all year round, and your guide knows all the honey holes to help you land your first Bull Red!

You’ll be fishing from a 24’ Shallow Stalker center console. She’s got a double hull with a shallow draft, making her perfect for fishing the Lowcountry and inshore waters of Texas. You’ll sneak up on your prey unexpectedly with the captain’s state-of-the-art navigational electronics and Power-Pole. You’ll also have top-quality rods and reels made by Shimano, G. Loomis, and St. Croix so you can fish in style like a pro!

You and 5 other guests will be able to book a trip for either a half day or a full day of fishing. On both trips, you’ll be prowling the shallow waters of South Padre Island looking for monster Redfish, Snook, Flounder, and Spotted Seatrout. Capt. Sergei can accommodate various fishing techniques, including jigging, spinning, drifting, and bottom fishing. He can also take you fly fishing, as long as you bring your own fly gear with you.

Capt. Sergei will work hard to make sure your trip is unforgettable and entertaining. All you need to do is purchase a fishing license and show up at the dock 15 minutes prior to departure. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks, and be sure to pack up an extra shirt with long sleeves, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

Join Angler Squad on South Padre Island off the Gulf Coast of Texas. You’ll be amazed by its surrounding beauty and more importantly, its prolific and diverse waters. Book your next fishing trip with Capt. Sergei and get ready to create lasting memories!

Captain Sergei Kudryavtsev began spearfishing early on in life, but when he tried shallow water fishing for the first time, he immediately fell in love. He’s been sportfishing for over 10 years now, mainly in freshwater, and decided to pursue his captain’s license in 2018. He began focusing on saltwater fishing, and says that “targeting saltwater species brings him the most joy.” He began his charter business the same year and it’s been smooth sailing ever since! This is his full-time job and what he loves to do. Capt. Sergei breathes, eats, and lives for the chase and he invites you to join him for some thrilling inshore action off the Gulf Coast of Texas!
