Join Sandbar Guide Services for Corpus Christi’s inshore fishing in Laguna Madre. This is an exclusive getaway to a hidden gem, that promises a unique day on the water.

Get to experience targeted fish species and scenery with Capt Joe Velazquez, as he offers many different styles of fishing. You can try out boat fishing, wade fishing, artificial lures, live bait, and many more. Capt. Joe specializes in artificial wade trips, which are great when you want a calm, more personalized experience. But don’t count out the family yet, as you can take a boat trip, fish with live bait, and bring home the memories of a lifetime.

The boat is a 21’ Shoalwater that accommodates up to 3 anglers. This flats boat is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and features everything you’ll need for a great day of fishing - basic navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and professional rods and reels.

Wading trips will take you to flats, while boat trips revolve around inshore spots, which are also shallow, and reefs. You can target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Flounder, and Ladyfish. You can release the catch or choose to keep it, if you intend to eat it later.

All your fishing equipment is covered by the captain. If you’re going wading, make sure to dress properly. Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks for the day.

Sandbar Guide Services welcomes you aboard!
