Captain Sammy Mock

5801 Padre Boulevard
South Padre Island TX, United State…

Captain Sammy Mock invites you on an exciting fishing trip in the flats of the Lower Laguna Madre, Texas. With a lifetime of fishing experience on the waters of South Texas, Captain Sammy Mock is your ultimate shallow water fishing guide. He has fished since the age of 8 with his Dad and Granddad who had instilled the love of fishing in him. And he will make you fall in love with fishing this area, too!

Captain Sammy will take you out at dawn break. Depending on the season, you can ride out at 6 am in the Summer, or 7:15 am in the Winter. You will go to the best and most productive spots where species such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder can be targeted.

Redfish is Captain Sammy’s specialty, and you will see why! These fish fight hard and give great satisfaction pound for pound, once you reel them in. If you have never caught one before, Captain Sammy will provide expert advice, and trust us, you’ll be hooked, too!

You will fish aboard a 24-foot Dargel flats boat, originally built in 2016 and powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine. The boat is fast in getting you to the desired spots, while also being wide and stable enough to comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests.

This boat is a great fishing platform because it has enough space to maneuver around when the fish start running in circles and because it has a sighting tower.

Captain Sammy Mock can accommodate from the most experienced to the never-fished-before anglers. Corporate groups welcome kids encouraged.

Captain Sammy has been fishing since he was 8 years old with his Dad and Granddad. Fishing runs in his family and it was a natural choice for Captain Sammy. He retired from working at the Postal Services for 30 years, and took up fishing and guiding full time. He is a kind and generous man with a wicked sense of humor. He loves taking out children and teaching them about this sport and the local fisheries.
