If you’re looking for an unforgettable angling adventure, cast off with Down South Fishing Charters! Departing out of Port Isabel, you’ll have the chance to experience the inshore fishing that the lower Laguna Madre has become famous for. Even better? You’ll be guided on your trip by Captain Chris Cole, who grew up fishing these waters. He knows a thing or two about what it takes to hook the catch of your dreams.
Capt. Chris has plenty of angling experience, both personally and as a charter captain. With this experience comes the opportunity to share his love of the outdoors with his clients. This is something that he feels privileged to do. He especially loves taking new anglers out and loves watching their reactions if they’ve never been on a boat before. It reminds him to never take his love for these waters for granted!
You’ll be fishing from Capt. Chris’s 21’ Shallow Sport bay boat. She’s built for cruising narrow, shallow waters, making her the perfect vessel for exploring Laguna Madre. Capt. Chris can accommodate up to 6 guests, and warmly welcomes families with little ones on board, too. Your vessel is decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, as well as plenty of storage, so you don’t need to worry about bringing your own cooler.
When it comes to fishing, there’s a reason why Laguna Madre is so beloved by anglers! Capt. Chris will have you targeting exciting species such as huge Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum. You’ll be using light tackle to hook your catch, and your captain will show you how to wield your rod for the best results. Catch and release is encouraged – why not help preserve this excellent fishery for generations to come?
Rods, reels, and tackle are included in your trip, as well as drinking water. Live bait can be purchased at an additional cost, and you’ll need to pick up a fishing license beforehand. Then it’s time to cast off on an incredible angling adventure with Down South Fishing Charters!
