Get ready for a great day in the bay with Captain Elliot Charters, fishing the sandy flats and inshore waters for the area’s best shallow-water species. Fishing around the famous South Padre Island, TX, you will be dropping your lines into waters so full of fish that you are almost guaranteed to catch something special. In fact, you are! Captain Elliot Rodriguez is so confident he will get you on the fish that if you somehow leave empty-handed, your next trip with him is free of charge.
Flat-bottom boats rule the inshore scene around South Padre Island, and Captain Elliot’s 23’ Majek flats boat can compete with the best of them. Able to carry four guests with ease as she navigates nimbly through the sandbanks and shallow flats where the best fish love to lurk, the vessel comes equipped with everything you will need for the perfect fishing trip, including top quality tackle and a stealthy trolling motor to help you sneak up on even the spookiest fish.
Captain Elliot Charters specializes in catching trophy fish on artificials, and you will be given a variety of colorful and realistic lures to tempt in any taste. During your trip, you will be able to employ a variety of fishing techniques to best target each individual species, or to switch things up when one style isn’t working. You will be given a choice of jigging, popping, and spinning gear, and the additional option to drift and bottom fish. This means you will be able to target your catch the way you like best.
All trips come with tackle, lures, and refreshments. The captain will also provide a cleaning and filleting service for all your fish, so they are ready to enjoy as soon as you get home. Just remember to bring fishing licenses with all necessary stamps for everyone on board, and a big cooler to stuff full of tasty fish at the end of the day!
