Fishing Buddy

664 Hillcrest Dr
Brownsville TX, United States

Captain Robert Love, AKA the ‘Fishing Buddy’ is an expert provider of enjoyable fishing trips in the South Padre Island area of South Texas. Offering a variety of fishing trips, he is sure to have a package to suit your needs.

Captain Robert fishes aboard a 24 ft Shallow Stalker Cat 240 Pro boat by Bayside Marine that was brand new in 2015. True to its name, the boat is unbeatable for stalking tailing fish in skinny water, its draft of 6-8 inches taking it to areas other boats can’t access. At the same time, the boat’s dual hull gives it an extremely stable ride, and it has plenty of space for six anglers plus the captain.

Fishing Buddy specializes in fishing for Redfish, Trout, and other inshore species with artificial lures. You are welcome to fish with live bait if desired, although that will need to be purchased at an additional price. The stability of the boat means it can be possible to travel further out and target King Mackerel, Sheepshead, and Snappers, depending on the conditions, and it is also equipped with lights for night time fishing and Flounder gigging.

All rods, reels, and artificial lures are supplied, but please remember live bait is not included in the price. Make sure to purchase a valid Texas fishing license before coming aboard the boat with Fishing Buddy.
