Fish the inshore and nearshore areas around Port Isabel and South Padre Island with a young guide who is full of enthusiasm for fishing in the local area. Captain Tony Mayorga owns and operates SouthTexasAnglerXcursions, and he has spent his whole life learning the best techniques for fishing in the local area.
Captain Tony fishes aboard a 20’ Shallow Sport boat that has been recently restored to make it the perfect vessel for fishing the local area. Holding up to three guests, the boat can access extremely shallow water while also being able to handle chop well. It is powered by a Yamaha engine for speed and efficiency, and has an ice box on board to keep your drinks cool throughout the trip.
During your trip you could be fishing for any of a wide number of fish species, from Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, to Sheepshead, Snook, and Snappers (all depending on the season and the conditions). You have the choice of fishing with live bait or artificial lures, with cut bait also occasionally used. If you are keen on wade fishing, that is also possible with SouthTexasAngler.
In the words of the captain: “fishing the Lower Laguna Madre Area is great fun with so many opportunities and different species of fish we target… From sun up to sun down the fish love to feed so hop on with me for a memorable Life Experience.”

I took my grandsons fishing on Laguna Madre with Capt. Tony Mayorga and had a really great time. Capt. Tony’s vast experience and knowledge of the bay made for an enjoyable and safe trip. His patient instruction of myself and my grandsons helped us learn new methods of sportfishing for the elusive redfish and seatrout. We kept a couple of fine examples for the table and only wish we had more time for a longer trip. If you want to fish with a professional on a well maintained and outfitted boat I highly recommend you book a sportfishing charter with Captain Tony Mayorga. We certainly look forward to our next trip. Thanks Captain Tony.

Me and my son came to south padre, on his first salt water fishing trip, and choose Captain Tony, and we could not have made a better choice. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable but also very patient and kind. My son has not stopped raving about our trip. We caught several fish, one a really nice Blackfish that we then ate for dinner. If you are looking for a great time good conversation and history of the area. I wholeheartedly reccomend him as your guide through the skinny waters and honestly anywhere hes willing to take you!
