Reel Action Charter Services – South Padre Is

Explore the legendary inshore waters of Texas with Reel Action Charter Services. Your guide on this adventure will be Augustin Perez. He’s been fishing his whole life and a few years back decided to follow his dream and guide fishing trips full time. He runs a variety of fishing trips year round, and there’s a tour for every guest, regardless of your fishing experience.

You can start your adventure in Port Mansfield or South Padre Island. Capt. Augustin will welcome you on his 25’ Dargel Kat flats boat which accommodates up to 4 guests. She provides a safe and smooth ride, no matter what fishing grounds you decide to visit.

All trips are flexible and you only need to get in touch with the captain if you have any special requests, be it the time you want to depart or a fishing technique you want to use. Capt. Augustin specializes in light tackle fishing with artificial lures but he can also switch to live bait. Your main targets will be Trout, Redfish, and Flounder, but you can also catch Snapper when in season.

Your rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price. You’ll need to purchase your fishing license and prepare some snacks and drinks. When the trip is over, it doesn’t mean the fun is over - the captain will clean your catch for free, so you can take immediately to one of the local restaurants.

Join Reel Action Charter Services and start your Texas adventure while you can still choose the date!
