Get Wet Fishing specializes in wade and drift fishing trips around the famed waters of the Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay. Here, you can hope to catch trophy-sized Speckled Trout and Redfish. Bait and lure anglers are welcome to join the chase. Whether you’re a novice fisherman or a seasoned angler, you will likely find a package to suit you, and Captain Carl will work to put you on fish.

But, even better—you can fish with Captain Carl elsewhere, as well. If you’ve missed a spot here, just scroll down and click on the captain’s name to see available dates in Riviera and Port Mansfield. Riviera gets booked pretty swiftly. Have a look at the gallery and you will see why.

Captain Carl has been a fisherman his whole life. He is from Texas and knows the local fisheries superbly. He loves the outdoors and is a specialist in wade and drift fishing. Carl’s taken part in numerous tournaments and loves going after Redfish and Specks, in particular, but can put you on other inshore species as well.

You will be fishing from a 23’ Majek center console. She is powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine and can take up to six anglers. The boat is rigged with GPS, a fishfinder, a live bait well, stores life jackets, and has an ice box.

Depending on the package, you can either use lures or live bait, and can try dirft and wade fishing. Please note that the bait is not included in the trip price, and that you should bring cash for it. Live bait is usually croaker, perch or shrimp, while you will be using topwaters, jigs, or corkies as artificial lures.

Once you head out, the captain will furnish fishing rods, reels, and tackle, along with lures. You should bring a valid Texas fishing license, as well as food, snacks, and refreshments. You’re advised to pack sunscreen, a hat, polarized sun glasses, an ice box for your catch, wading equipment, and a camera. It would be good to have on comfortable clothes and footwear so that you can move around easily and readily join the action.

We had such fun. Capt. was awesome about doing everything he could to put us on the fish, with less than great conditions.  Great Time. We WILL go again.

It was a really great trip! The captain was a ton of fun and was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately the fish were just not biting, but we were able to catch one really big Red (tagged it).  Overall it was a good time, and we’re looking forward to going again sometime soon.  Thanks Captain
