Captain Aaron Wittreich will be there to take you to the best fishing spots in the area and help you have a great time on the water. Join him and have a memorable angling adventure over at South Padre Island!

You’ll be fishing from a 2022, 24’ Shallow Stalker center console. This spacious boat can easily sit up to 6 guests and it’s powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 60 mph.
