Come explore the shallow waters of the Coastal Bend in pursuit of trophy Speckled Trout, Redfish and Flounder! Southbound Fishing Charters is based in Corpus Christi, Texas, and is owned and operated by lifetime local, Captain Pierre Petrila.

Their 22’ Majek flats boat can accommodate up to four anglers, and is powered by a Suzuki motor. It comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder and VHF radio, as well as a wireless trolling motor to sneak you into those shallow spots without scaring the fish away. Trips include the use of rods, reels and tackle, lures, live bait, and cleaning and filleting of your day’s catch, while an icebox is available to keep your drinks and snacks chilled for your refreshment.

Join one of their guided fishing trips, which usually consist of drifting from the boat, or wading with either artificial lures or live bait. They will take you inshore or up to 9 miles nearshore on the Gulf of Mexico, as well as flats fishing on Laguna Madre, Baffin Bay and Corpus Christi Bay. Their fishing adventures are suitable for all levels of angler, from beginners to the most experienced wade fisherman, while children and families are always welcome. The crew specialize in light tackle, sight casting, and flounder gigging, and can customize your adventure to suit you! Corporate multi-boat trips are also available, as well as both duck and dove hunts.

Had a great experience with Capt. Petrila he is very familiar with the region especially with Baffin Bay. He was able to put us in great fishing spots throughout the day, we caught the limit on Drum(20), five reds, and six trout which were keepers, we caught a whole lot more which under sized. Good fishing experience for my grandson and his friend whom was a first time fisherman. Pierre got him going on a good casting technique and the boy out fished all of us. I would certainly recommend Southbound fishing to my fishing buddies. I’ll be back soon!

Pierre did a great job of putting us where the fish were.  I am new to flats fishing and he gave me a lot of helpful advice.  Plan to do much more of this with him.
