Reel Action Charter Services provides professional fishing charter experiences in Port Mansfield, Texas. Offering half day, full day, and evening trips, they give you the chance to experience Texas fishing with a guide who has been angling in the beautiful Lower Laguna Madre for over 20 years.

Your trip will be spent aboard Captain Augustin Perez’s stable 25 ft Dargel Kat flats boat, which provides a comfortable ride for up to four anglers plus the captain. Powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine, the boat can reach speeds of up to 55 knots, getting you between the best fishing spots fast.

While Captain Augustin specializes in fishing with light tackle and artificial baits, he is happy to provide live bait for you if you prefer, and his boat’s live bait tank will keep it fresh throughout your trip. Reel Action Charter Services focus on catching all three species the Laguna Madre is famous for: Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Trips are flexible and, above all, are designed for you to have your perfect, personalized Texas fishing trip.

All bait, tackle, and bottled water is included in the price of the trip. Just turn up with a valid Texas saltwater fishing license and any snacks and drinks you might like to have during the day and get ready for a fun day fishing in the Laguna Madre.

If you prefer, you can also meet Capt. Augustin in Arroyo City or South Padre Island, TX and fish from there. Please, send him a message prior to the trip. After that, the adventure can begin!
