Top Fishing Charters in Aransas Pass


Overlooking the Redfish Bay, Aransas Pass is perfectly located to get you on some of South Texas’ most productive waters. Follow an Aransas Pass fishing guide to discover the riches of the Redfish, Aransas, and Corpus Christi Bays, along with the deep waters of the Gulf, on a fishing trip like never before. 
 
With so many fishing grounds, it’s no surprise that you can catch a diverse range of fish here. Hit the inshore bays, flats, and marshes for delicious Sheepshead, Flounder, Trout, and Redfish. Meanwhile, you can also test your skills against Jack Crevalle and Tarpon. A nearshore trip will give you the chance to go after Cobia and Amberjack, while an offshore adventure will see you push yourself to the limit against Tuna, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, and more. 
 
There are trips on offer for all kinds of anglers in these rich waters. Beginners and families can take advantage of half day trips. There’s the option of trips as long as twelve hours, or even a few days lodging, for those looking to get the most out of the bays. You’ll need at least ten hours to hit the deep waters offshore, and you can even spend multiple days aboard a boat in the heart of the Gulf!
 
Whatever you’re looking for, South Texas has got it. Get in touch with an Aransas Pass fishing guide and book the trip most suited to your needs!

 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler over the age of 17 needs a license to fish in Texan waters, so grab your saltwater permit before coming aboard and away you go. If you want to catch a famous Bull Redfish (over 28 inches), then you’ll also need a Red Drum tag, which you can purchase alongside your license. Other than that, your professional guide will make sure that you stick to the latest bag and size limits.

January
It’s a time for new beginnings, so why not get hooked on fishing? The inshore waters are full of Redfish, Trout, and Sheepshead just calling your name, so get ready to head home with a treat.
February
While some prized Marlin may entice you offshore, the best fishing can be found in the shallow waters of the Corpus Christi and Aransas Bays. Get ready to land a whole host of tasty fish.
March
It's all about inshore fishing as winter draws to a close, with plenty of tasty fish just waiting to be caught. Get your fish on and land some delicious Sheepshead, Trout, and Redfish to take home.
April
Whether nearshore or inshore, the fishing is thrilling. Some monster Cobia and Kingfish will make their way towards the bays, so get ready for a fight to fill the boat. 
May
Under the shining sun, you’ll see the fishing heat up, too. The season is in full swing and you’ll have the chance to go after some brutish Amberjacks, Cobias, and Mackerels. 
June
With all the incredible fishing, it’s easy to forget about the sun. Make sure to protect yourself as you spend your day focusing on the stunning fishing that summer yields. 
July
Anglers from all over the world will descend upon Aransas Pass and Port Aransas for the Gulf Coast’s oldest fishing tournament. Why not test your skills at the Deep Sea Roundup?
August
Nearshore is where it’s at as the summer winds to a close. There’ll be no sign of it slowing down as you go after stunning Snappers, Amberjacks, and Kingfish along the Gulf’s reefs and wrecks. 
September
The waters are at their hottest following the summer rays, and a whole load of new fish come to the fore. Go after Tarpon and Bull Reds in the shallows, along with delicious Mahi Mahi and Mackerel further out. 
October
Flounder joins the Redfish inshore to add another dimension to the question, “What’s for dinner?” Fish the shallows or head offshore to take on some monster Tuna and Mahi Mahi.

 

November
There’s still plenty of options for a culinary delight, be you offshore in pursuit of Tuna or inshore going after Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Sheepshead. Tailor your trip to get the most out of the water. 
December
Who wants a white Christmas when you can spend the whole month fishing? The fish don’t let up, so make the most of the end of the year and explore the rich bays for a range of delicious fish.

There is a LOT of quality water in the area. I particularly like wade-fishing the flats, and there are literally thousands of acres available. We had perfect weather. Not crazy hot, beautiful water temperature, and lots of fishing opportunity. Highly recommended.

I would recommend Aransas Pass because it is away from the tourist crowd of Port Aransas. We stayed in PA but vying for a fishing trip there was crazy. Easy access to the harbor in Aransas Pass.

BE SURE TO UNDERSTAND THE TYPE OF FISHING YOU WILL BE OFFERED. SOME GUIDES ONLY OFFER FISHING WITH LIVE BAIT WHILE OTHERS PREFER TO FISH WITH ARTIFICALS. BRING YOUR WATER AND SNACKS NOT YOUR BEER TO THE BOAT. CATCHING FISH IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THE TRIP BUT SOME TIMES THE FISH JUST DON;T CO-OPERATE. NOT THE GUIDES FAULT. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS TIP YOUR GUIDE.

Expect a great trip with Captain Larry Bell, he will give you a great day on the water filled with quality keeper size redfish and trout. Plan on wearing clothes that you feel comfortable wadefishing in. Remember to shuffle your feet. Never had any problems with stingrays but always better to be safe. Bring lots of sunscreen and polarized glasses to be able to see top water baits used on the flats without hurting your eyes.

Good captain; weather turned bad and fishing was off. Captain tried hard to find fish, but not good in terms of a catch. Captain was very good with my two kids and they loved the trip. Will try again in future.

I booked a trip with Capt Tyler for my mom’s birthday, and we were not disappointed! Tyler took us to so many spots trying to get us on the fish, but they just weren’t cooperating, so no fish for us, but we did have an incredible and unforgettable trip! We would do this again, and I would recommend Capt Tyler anytime! Thanks for a great afternoon!

Great trip, winds were dead calm and it made fishing slow but capt brett stayed extra time with us to ensure we put fish in the box. He stayed out almost 3 hours later than he had to so we could fill the box. And that’s exactly what we did.

My wife and I booked a half day trip for our anniversary, it was awesome! Tim knew exactly where to take us, and we had each caught our limit within just a couple hours. After reaching our limit tim took us out to other places to look for other types of fish and let us catch and release. We are already planning a trip to come back and we’ve told all our family and friends about how much fun we had!
