Reel Therapy Charter Service

Soak in the Texas sun in the abundant inshore waters of Port Isabel by joining Reel Therapy Charter Service! Captain Jamie de la Fuente has fished these waters for over 20 years and knows where the fish are no matter the season.

Capt. Jamie will take you out on his 25’ Dargel Boatworks flats boat built in 2016. This brand new beauty is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, meaning you will not waste any time getting to the most productive waters. It can take out up to 5 anglers, so it’s ideal for a friends and family day.

All the fishing equipment will be ready for you on board, as well as a range of artificial lures. After the trip, the captain will clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home for a delicious meal or to fill the freezer.

The Laguna Madre area is brimming with life, and you’ll find that there’s a variety of species that call these waters their home. You can expect to come face-to-gill with some of the most prized fish like Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. You can also catch Black Drum occasionally.

Make sure to have a valid fishing license, and bring some food and drinks for your refreshment. Don’t forget to bring some sun protection as well, so you can relax and fully enjoy your day.

If you’re looking for an exciting Texas fishing trip with a local, Reel Therapy Charter Service is everything you need!
