Tails Up Guide Service
One of our top picks in Aransas Pass. Tails Up Guide Service offers guided inshore fishing trips throughout the bay systems around Rockport, Port Aransas, and Aransas Pass. Departing from whichever of these areas is most convenient for you, the service will provide you with a fishing trip to remember.
Capt. James Sabo owns and operates Tails Up Guide Service. He fishes aboard a modern Majek Illusion flats boat that can travel in extremely shallow water and lead you to the biggest inshore fish. The boat is equipped with a Garmin GPS system, as well as a trolling motor and anchoring system to allow you to approach spooky fish and stay put while you target them.
You could be using a variety of fishing styles on your trip, from fishing with live and dead bait such as mullet, mud minnow, and sea lice, to using topwater lures and soft plastics, which are the captain’s speciality. It all depends on how you would prefer to fish and what the captain judges will be the most effective method for the conditions and target species. Your potential catches could include the desirable and delicious Redfish, the Speckled Trout, Black Drum, or Flounder, although you could also hook Shepshead, Jack Crevalle, and even Tarpon on occasion.
While all the appropriate rods, reels, bait and lures are supplied by the captain, it is up to the customer to ensure that they arrive at the charter with a valid Texas saltwater fishing license with a saltwater stamp. While life jackets are of course supplied on board, it is advised that children under 13 bring their own comfortable life jacket, as the type 1 jackets
supplied on board can be uncomfortable for younger children.

I hope I get another chance fishing with this captain,we had my great granddaughter with us and he seemed to look out for her above and beyond. Our time on the boat was the best vacation I’ve had in a long time.
THANKS CAPTAIN JAMES
