Tails Up Guide Service – C. Christi

Tails Up Guide Service focuses on one goal: to give every customer who comes aboard the boat a successful, exciting and enjoyable fishing trip. Give experienced local Captain James Sabo a try and fish the best waters around Corpus Christi.

If fishing aboard an extremely stable boat that can reach the shallowest of waters sounds good to you, then this is the service for you. Captain James’ 23 ft Majek center console is a very comfortable boat to fish off, and it can accommodate up to five people to do so together. The boat is fitted with all the essentials for a successful inshore fishing trip and more - its Garmin electronics, modern trolling motor, and powerful Yamaha motor all combine to make it one of the most effective boats in the area.

During a trip with Tails Up Guide Service, you will be fishing for the best local inshore species such as Redfish, Black Drum, and Speckled Trout. While Captain James specializes in fishing with topwater lures and soft plastics, he is equally at home fishing with live or dead bait, and he will happily provide you with everything you need to fish with your preferred style. Depending on the conditions and your preferences, you can sight cast from the boat, drift, or wade, or even combine a variety of fishing styles.

All the rods, reels, tackle, and bait you will need for your trip will be provided for you. Just make sure that you have a valid Texas saltwater fishing license before stepping aboard the boat.
