Sunrise Guide Services

If you’re here to make the most of fishing in Aransas Pass, look no further than Sunrise Guide Services. Your guide for the day is Captain Henry, allowing you to benefit from years of professional experience.

These waters are known for Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and more – with any luck, you’ll have tight lines in no time.

Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself spinning, popping, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Fish caught during the trip are yours to take home, provided they’re legal to keep. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Now that’s dinner!

Sunrise Guide Services is a kid-friendly charter service, so bring ‘em aboard and get the kids hooked while they’re young! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. And, you can’t go wrong with snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty stomach!

Your excursion begins aboard a 23’ Aquasport center console with a capacity for 5 passengers. It comes with all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. Rods, reels, and tackle are included, along with lures. Live bait is included, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll catch it yourself.

Before coming aboard, it may be necessary to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.

It’s always wise to bring sunglasses, sunscreen (non-spray), and bottled water. Drinks are included, free of charge. 

Your trip with Sunrise Guide Services is just a click away, so why not make it happen?
