You’ll be cruising the North and South Bay of South Padre Island on a 17’ Savage Creek skiff boat. Her size makes her perfect for traveling these inshore waters as you hunt for your dream catch.

Capt. Allen welcomes everyone on board, from hardcore anglers to little ones just discovering their sea legs. And as for the species you’ll be targeting? Depending on the season, you’ll reel in hard-fighting Tarpon, as well as Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout. If you’re fishing the South Bay, you’ll reach the hottest fishing spots after about 15 minutes. Want more time to prepare for battle? It’ll take around 45 minutes to get to the bountiful North Bay.

You’ll be provided with a variety of top-quality rods and reels, as well as your captain’s own special lures to keep the fish biting. Want to do a spot of fly fishing? Just bring your favorite gear along with you. Come join Capt. Allen onboard South Padre Island Fishing Charters LLC for the angling adventure of a lifetime!
