High Tide Adventures - Port Aransas

Climb aboard with High Tide Adventures for a day of action-packed fishing, chasing tailing Redfish, fighting feisty Trout, and battling with monster Tarpon, as well as having the chance to troll for Kingfish or drop some lines for Snapper if the weather is right.

Port Aransas is where all aspects of the Texas Gulf Coast come together. Equally placed between the famous Aransas and Corpus Christi bays, you have more options than you will know what to do with when it comes to inshore fishing, and with unrestricted access to the Gulf of Mexico, you are perfectly placed to fish offshore a well!

Captain Troy’s 23’ Majek Illusion M2 flats boat was bought and built with this in mind. The vessel if shallow-drafted enough to navigate even the skinniest of flats in search of the best inshore specimens. On a calm day, however, she is also more than capable of going offshore, targeting big King Mackerel, Snapper, Cobia and more.

The vessel comes equipped with cutting edge Garmin electronics to sound out the very best spots, a stealthy Minn Kota i-Pilot trolling motor to stalk through the shallows in silence, and outriggers to draw in fast-moving King Mackerel offshore - and with a cruising speed of 50 knots, even they will struggle to keep up!

Captain Troy provides fishing equipment to best target the range of species found in the area. High-quality light and heavy tackle are combined with the live bait or lifelike lures to tempt in even the fussiest fish. You will also be provided with fly tackle for the ultimate battle against hard-fighting fish like Tarpon, or Flounder gigs for those just looking to bag themselves some tasty dinner.

High Tide Adventures trips come with everything you will need for the day’s fishing, and Captain Troy will even clean and fillet all your catch for you at the end of the day, ready to take home and enjoy. All you will need is a saltwater fishing license, a big cooler, and plenty of energy, because the fish are going to be biting all day long!

My fishing experience runs deep in our family. As a five year old boy, I learned quickly about techniques for fishing large reds and specs. My father was a guide out of Aransas Pass for many years. I am a pro-staff member with Nacho Daddys Spoons, and 3JD Lures, and love showing their abilities. I truly enjoy showing clients the techniques, that I've learned over the years, and have been passed down to me from three different generations of fishermen. Let me show you a side of the saltwater mist don't know exist. I am a USCG & TPWD certified captain. Come check out our sites at www.hightideadventures.com
