This charter covers the area of South Padre Island Bay and Lower Laguna Madre, which include inshore fisheries along with local flats. The fish is biting all year round, though some species might be more available than others, depending on the seasons. You can go after Redfish, Speckled Trout, and yummy Flounder. As for the fishing techniques you can use light tackle, bottom fishing, drift fishing, and Flounder gigging.

Children older than the age of 5 are welcome. All the necessary fishing gear and lures will be waiting for you on board. Just be sure to acquire your Texas fishing license before the trip, as the charter doesn’t cover it. For your better experience, the crew offers non-alcoholic beverages.
