Out of the beautiful Port Aransas in Texas, Port Aransas Guide Service and Captain Brian Cibulka offer a wide range of fishing trips. From inshore, nearshore, and offshore spots, to wreck and flats fishing, you’ll definitely find your perfect trip. What’s special about this charter is that you can also have custom excursions including sightseeing and wakeboarding.
 
Come aboard a fully equipped 23’ Parker center console powered by a 225 HP Yamaha four stroke engine. The boat takes up to 4 guests and there’s plenty of space for the whole family. She’s got a full navigation system, outriggers, downriggers, snorkeling and spearfishing equipment, as well as a wireless trolling motor, livewell, and ice-box.  There’s even a private toilet. Captain Brian always strives to create a family atmosphere on the boat, so feel free to bring your kids as well.

Some of the fish you’ll meet include Red Snapper, Red Drum, Snook, Sheepshead, and Mahi Mahi. The choice of techniques you’ll use is huge: trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, as well as bottom, deep sea, fly, drift fishing, and spearfishing. While Captain Brian encourages releasing fish back to the water, you’re also allowed to keep it. And for a few extra bucks, he’ll clean it and fillet it for you.

You’re covered for all the gear. Penn tackle, lures, and live bait are all included in the price. Pack whatever snacks and drink you want, bring your licenses, and you’re totally set to go.
