Top Fishing Charters in Aransas Pass

Fishing in Aransas Pass

Located on the coastal bend of Texas, Aransas Pass boasts good weather year round, so there’s always a chance to go fishing! Aransas Pass fishing guides will show you the productive shallow waters of the Corpus Christi Bay, Redfish Bay, and Aransas Bay, and you may even have the chance to head out into the Gulf for a thrilling offshore adventure. 

What type of fishing guide is best for me?

For Beginners and Families

A half-day trip is best to learn about the buzz of fishing, or to get the little ones hooked. With a wealth of hotspots minutes from the dock, you won’t waste a second before casting. Fishing is a way of life here, and an experienced Texan fishing guide will help you make your first catch. 

Feeling more adventurous?

A little more time on the water can go a long way. It can even be the difference between filling the fridge and going home hungry. Book a 3/4 or full-day trip and get the most out of the productive bays. 
Bottom fish for tough-fighting Redfish, delicious Sheepshead, Flounder, and Trout, and monster Kingfish, Cobia, and Amberjack. Head to the sweet spots and get ready for an exciting, productive day.

Extreme Fishing

While most charters offer the chance to fish nearshore, a handful of experienced fishing guides will take you offshore.
Deep sea fishing in the Gulf is a completely different kettle of fish – literally! Troll the open seas and experience rod-bending action, as you target monster Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Tuna. Land the catch of your life and head home with a delicious treat and a prized trophy to your name. 

When to Go

You can make the most of these productive waters whenever it suits you, and that’s just the start of the beauty of Aransas Pass fishing.
The peak season for Aransas Pass fishing guides is summer. From spring onwards, things heat up – and we don’t just mean the weather, so make sure you book early. Target prized Red Snapper, exciting Cobia and Amberjack, and delicious Trout.
There’s a reason why anglers from all over the world come to target Redfish here. Visit in Spring or Fall to hook these beauties, and get ready to fill your boat.
If you want a pulse-racing experience offshore, then there’s never a bad time to come. Fishing is productive until the end of the year, so you can head out when the waters are busy or quieter. 

What to Bring

You’ll have all the necessary gear for your day on the water, including tackle, lures, and sometimes live bait. Captains often provide some bottled water and ice to keep you refreshed, so you just need to bring:
  • Any other food and drinks 
  • Suitable clothing 
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses
  • A Texas fishing license – online or in person
Some captains may ask you to bring a cooler to keep your catch, so check before you go, and get ready to fill the freezer after a successful trip out of Aransas Pass.

Aransas Pass Fishing Seasons

It’s a time for new beginnings, so why not get hooked on fishing? The inshore waters are full of Redfish, Drum, Trout, and Sheepshead just calling your name.


Nearshore fishing is starting to warm up so hit the reefs and wrecks out in the Atlantic and target Kingfish, Grouper, and Snapper as you look for a tasty treat to take home.


The weather and waters are warming up, so head offshore for a thrilling experience. Catch bait on your way out before battling it out with monster Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, and more.


Cobia make their way along the east coast, following the Gulf Stream’s jet. They’ll be chasing Manta Rays so keep an eye out for these impressive beasts and get your fish on.


Peak season is here, so expect thrilling fishing wherever you go. Target pelagics offshore, hit the bottom fish along the reefs, or battle it out with stunning inshore creatures in the River.


The Gulf Stream is slightly closer, so you won’t need to head too far offshore for rod-bending action. Go after the catch of a lifetime as you target Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, and more.


Beware of the afternoon storms and prepare for an early start to get the most out of tour day. Head to the nearshore reefs and wrecks for the and you may even catch Sharks.


Don’t let the summer get away from you. The nearshore season is ending so get out on the water one last time and fill the boat with delicious Groupers, Snappers, Mackerel, and more.


After the highs of summer, the water is at its hottest – and so is the fishing! Tarpon will make their way inshore, so you’ll get to test your skills against the “Silver King.”


Head offshore for the last of the pelagics as they make their way past Florida’s east coast. Monster Sharks, delicious Mahi Mahi, and strong Kingfish will be the order of the day.


It’s all about the Kingfish in the Gulf Stream during November. Head out from Ponce inlet and get to the water’s deepest spots where you’ll troll for this popular creature.


Everyone wants that homely feeling as the year draws to a close. Thankfully, the best fishing is on the Halifax River. Target inshore species and get the family together for a delicious dinner.
