Get'm Hook'd Fishing Charters

Team up with Get’m Hook’d Fishing Charters and experience the joys of fishing in this part of Texas. Captain Arturo Calderas has more than 25 years of fishing experience under his belt and will do his best to ensure you have an unforgettable angling adventure in South Padre Island. Whether you’re an expert or someone just starting out in the awesome world of fishing, he’s got your back.

You’ll be fishing from his 25’ Majek bay boat that runs on a 300 HP Suzuki engine. There’s enough room here for up to 6 guests, so bring a few friends along and come aboard. The boat has all the necessary safety gear and navigational electronics to ensure a safe and productive day on the water.

When it comes to the fishing itself, you’re in for a fun time exploring these Texan inshore waters and flats. Your trip starts with a 15–20 minute boat ride to the fishing spots, allowing you to also do a bit of sightseeing of the local islands. When you start fishing you’ll be targeting Trout and Redfish for the most part, but there’s also Sheepshead, Flounder, Black Drum, and others out there.

All the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the trip price. Not only that, but the captain will clean and fillet your catch after the trip. There’s also some water and soda on the boat, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks. Other things you should bring include polarized sunglasses and sunscreen for the best possible experience. Come on down and get ready to catch some fish!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Captain Arturo Calderas has been fishing for more than 2 decades now. In addition to being a charter captain, he's also been an avid tournament angler for the last 5 years and has had his share of awards to boot. For him, the best part of his job is when he fishes with people who haven't fished before, or when someone catches a fish they've never caught before. Seeing those expressions on people's faces is much better than catching the fish himself!
