Seidel Guide Service

Seidel Guide Service invites you to fish the beautiful and abundant Port Aransas waters in Texas. They offer bay fishing in Port Aransas and Rockport area with all the bays from Matagorda to Baffin covered. Captain Randy Seidel who owns and operates the charter has worked incredibly hard to make this a prime guiding service in the area and one to be reckoned with.

Captain Randy will take you fishing for the “big three” species: Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Depending on the time of year, you might also be able to target the occasional Tarpon, Bluefish, Black Drum, Ladyfish, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle, and Sharks. You will do wade fishing and drift fishing as preferred techniques using live bait or artificial.

Fishing takes place aboard a 24-foot Blazer Bay center console originally built in 2015 with a guest capacity of 5. Powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 60 knots, this boat is super fast and gets you to the fishing grounds in no time. It features all the USCG-approved safety equipment like life jackets and a CPR-trained Captain.

The vessel is equipped with a GPS and a fishfinder used to locate the schooling fish, a livewell to hold the baits.

Seidel Guide Service offers half day and full day trips for up to 5 guests. They provide rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and a catch cleaning and filleting service. You will need to obtain a valid Texas saltwater fishing license, and you are welcome to bring own food and drinks for the day. Families are very welcome on Captain Seidel’s charters and multi boat trips are available.
