Reel Therapy Charter Service

North Garcia Street
Port Isabel TX, United States

Reel Therapy Charter Service offers exciting inshore fishing adventures in the abundant waters of Port Isabel, Texas. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Jamie DE La Fuente who has fished these waters for over 20 years and knows where the fish can be found whatever the season.

Captain Jamie will take you out on his 25-foot Dargel Boatworks flats boat originally built in 2016. This brand new beauty is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. The monster speed means you will not waste any time getting to the most productive waters.

The boat is fully equipped with electronics that include a GPS, a fishfinder, and a VHF radio. It also contains all the USCG-approved safety equipment such as life jackets, fire extinguishers, and a CPR-trained crew. You will also find a livewell on board for the bait.

Reel Therapy Charter Service offers bay fishing in the lower Laguna Madre area specializing in Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. You can also catch Black Drum occasionally. Captain Jamie will provide you with the fishing gear including rods, reels, tackle, lures, and cleaning and filleting of the catch.

So if you are looking for an exciting trip with a local who also happens to be a pleasant person with a good sense of humor, book your trip with Captain Jamie. Just make sure you have a valid fishing license for your trip and you’re good to go!
