Tails Up Guide Service

J C Barr Boulevard
Port Aransas TX, United States

At Tails Up Guide Service, my goal is to share over 20 years of fishing experience with each customer in order to provide a successful and exciting trip! I, Capt. James Sabo, would love for you to give me a try fishing some of the best waters in Rockport, Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Ingleside, Corpus Christi, and Portland.

I specialize in fishing the inshore waters with live or dead bait, as well as artificials/lures. I use light tackle, and I show you the best techniques for wading, sightcasting, and shallow water stalking. My boat is a very comfortable and spacious Majek center console that is perfect for stalking fish on the flats. It will give up to five people a smooth ride and is equipped with everything you need for a great day on the water.

I would love to have the opportunity to share my passion for fishing with you. Please take a moment to see what some of my customers are saying and click on the ‘reviews’ button below.

All the gear, bait, and lures you will need for your trip is included in the price. Please purchase a valid Texas saltwater fishing license prior to your trip.
