If you’re up for some first-class inshore fishing, Salty Shores Charters offers a classic Texas fishing experience! Join Captain Tim Johnson on a memorable fishing trip and go after the inshore Grand Slam.

Your primary targets are Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, and Flounder and your guide knows several fishing spots that hide excellent fish. Top-quality Shimano reels and Fishstix rods will wait for you on board and their main perk is that anglers of all levels can use them with ease.

If you’d like to use live bait, it’s possible for a small additional charge. After the trip, Capt. Tim will take the time to clean, fillet, and bag the catch for your convenience.

You will be fishing aboard Captain Tim’s 21’ Dargel center console with plenty of room aboard for up to 4 guests. The vessel is outfitted with a 140 HP Suzuki engine and can cruise at up to 30 knots to get you to the best waters.

Capt. Tim has been fishing these waters for much of his life and has decades of local experience which he puts to use on every trip. He will put you on some great catches and show you a side of Corpus Christi you never knew existed.

You can book either a half day or a full day trip, with morning and afternoon options, allowing for maximum flexibility on half days. The target species will be the same, but the full day lets you hit your limits and really fill the boat. All children 14 and older are welcome to join!

All trips with Capt. Tim also include drinks and light snacks. All you need to bring is food, your fishing license, and a big cooler to put all your catch in.

Let Salty Shores Charters show you what premier Texas fishing is all about!
