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.

Took all three of my teenagers on a full day fishing trip with Captain Pierre. We had a great time and caught a good mix trout, drum, and sheepshead with a little bit of Baffin Bay weirdness thrown in (toad fish and sea robin). What made the day crazy was after I gave the dad boating and casting safety speech to the kids I am the one that hooks our Captain! I was mortified and felt terrible about it. Captain Pierre just shrugged it off and kept us fishing! It was a great experience to go fishing with a guide that was highly professional, pleasant, easy going, and of course puts you on the fish! I would highly recommend Captain Pierre and look forward to coming back again this summer.

Captain Petrila, did a great job. I appreciate his taking the time and going the extra mile to get us on the water. Hard conditions kept most fishermen off the bay (34* and 10-20mph winds). This is a once a year thing for us; so as long as we are safe, it’s about getting out, being together, and trying to catch fish. We gambled the temps would rise, they didn’t. He spent 4 hrs on the water burning his fuel trying to get on fish in the 34* (below freezing with wind chill and water temp was 41*) weather. We had one of those “miserable/blast” experiences. Yep, no fish but he offered not to charge us. The thing is, we knew there was a minimal to no chance of catching fish, and he didn’t cancel us. I guess he knew it was important to us just to get out on the water and try. I look forward to the next opportunity to go out on Captian Petrila’s boat.

Thanks for the kind review Curt! That was definitely a tough day but we gave it our best. As all my clients know, I will fish in any conditions (except lightning) and can usually overcome the conditions and find quality fish. The water temps were just too cold that day (39 degrees). I loook forward to seeing you guys next year. Thanks again for booking with Southbound Fishing Charters!Curt Kamman recommends Southbound Fishing Charters LLC
