Trout Tracker Red Runner and Captain Tony Gagliano invite you to enjoy some great fishing in and around the Corpus Christi, Texas area. Test yourself in all types of bay and flats fishing and learn tips and tricks from a local pro!

Hop aboard a 25’ Majek bay boat, ideal for up to 5 anglers. This clean and seaworthy fishing machine has a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots and offers a smooth and dry ride. She comes fitted with navigational electronics, safety equipment, a livewell, and more.

Fishing with Capt. Tony is a great experience for anglers of all skill levels. If you’re a beginner, you’ll absolutely love landing your first ever fish with such a professional. If you’re an experienced fisherman, there’s always a technique or two that you can learn from Capt. Tony!

You’ll fish the bays and flats for Redfish, Trout, and Drum. Depending on your personal preference and the season, you’ll do some sight casting, wade fishing, bait fishing, and lure casting.

All trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures. If wade fishing you will need your own gear, please discuss this with the captain before the trip. Customers can purchase bait at an additional cost, captain will pick up the bait for the trip. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you, ready to jump straight into the frying pan.

All you’ll need to bring is a valid fishing license and any drinks and snacks in a cooler that you’d like to enjoy. Fill the cooler with delicious fish and learn a few tricks along the way with Trout Tacker Red Runner!
