According to customer reviews, MillerTime Fishing, Lil Joe’s Guide Service – Port Aransas, and The "Fish" Guide Service II are some of the most popular fishing charters in Corpus Christi Bay. Full list of top fishing charters in Corpus Christi Bay.

MillerTime Fishing, Lil Joe’s Guide Service – Port Aransas, and The "Fish" Guide Service II all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Corpus Christi Bay.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Black Drum, and Flounder. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, drift fishing, and bottom fishing. Inshore fishing, flats fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The Corpus Christi Bay fishing scene is as diverse as can be! Boasting marshes, flats, jetties, channels, and access to the rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this lagoon has it all. Whether you’re fly fishing, bottom fishing, or heading out for some big game action, there’s no better place to start your angling adventure. 
 
You’ll find something to whet your appetite year-round in these rich waters. Go after delicious inshore creatures like Flounder, Redfish, Sheepshead, and Texas’ favorite fish – Speckled Trout. You can also test your skills and strength against Cobia, Amberjack, Tarpon, and even Mackerel. Meanwhile, big game enthusiasts can get their pulses racing with a trip to target Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Marlin, alongside the elusive Red Snapper – the list is endless!
 
Whether you’ve just got a few hours to spare, or fancy a real fishing holiday, a Corpus Christi fishing charter has something for you. Choose from half day trips to introduce the family to fishing, while the more keen angler will relish the chance to spend a full day casting. Inshore trips can last as long as ten hours, while offshore trips can see you spend up to 24 hours on the water.
 
Wherever you are around the bay, you’re not far from a thrilling adventure. You can hop aboard in Corpus Christi or its surrounding areas, Portland and Ingleside. Mustang or South Padre Island are popular departure points, too. Hit the Corpus Christi or any of its adjacent bays, along with the Gulf of Mexico, and get your fish on like never before!

 

Rules & Regulations

Before coming aboard, all anglers age 17 or older will need to purchase a TX saltwater fishing license. Get yours online or from any licensed retailer and away you go! 
 
While Texas is pretty liberal with its bag limits, you’ll want to be aware of the Red Drum tag. Grab one alongside your fishing license to take home one “bull” Redfish (bigger than 28 inches), and you’re good to go. For all other regulations, your professional captain will keep you informed.

January
There’s no better way to start the new year than fishing for Trout. You’ll find huge numbers of Specs at the upper side of the bay, close to Ingleside Cove, to put your skills to the test.

 

February
As the fishing action in the Gulf is still pretty low, it’s best to target Black Drum, Trout, or Sheepshead in the bay. Get your fish on and head home with a delicious treat!

 

March
Go fishing around the Long Reef for Trout. The reef is close to deeper waters, which makes it a great spot year round, attracting plenty of delicious creatures for you to target.
April
Keep an eye on the forecast, as the weather can change very quickly in April. If you manage to dodge the showers, then follow the locals to Oso Bay Bridge and get your fill of exciting fishing. 

 

May
Spring has truly sprung and the warmer weather brings with it plenty of tough-fighting and delicious Redfish. Go after these beauties inshore, along with Cobia or Jacks nearshore, for a thrilling adventure.

 

June
Red Snapper season kicks off in June and anglers race to the Gulf in search of this prized fish. Get ready for plenty of action as you look to land this dinner-table favorite. 
July
So many great fishing spots, so little time! You can go to the Gulf for Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, or Jack Crevalle, or stay in the bay and target "the big three." Wherever you go, the fishing is red hot.

 

August
With the kids off school, now's the prime time to introduce them to some exciting fishing in the bay. More avid anglers will relish the chance to head offshore, though, to land Mahi Mahi and Tuna.
September
The end of summer is a great time to target Redfish. Try your luck at the Indian Reef, between Corpus Christi and Portland, and get your fish on right away as you take advantage of the summer run of these beauties.
October
If you want to make the most of the Redfish spawning season, the beaches and jetties in Corpus Christi Bay are where you need to be. Flounder fishing also hits its peak, so you're sure to land a treat. 

 

November
Whatever you're looking for, these waters still have it. Hit the bay to land your limit of delicious Flounder, while an offshore trip will see you battle it out with monster Tuna.

 

December
End the year with a true Texan adventure. Come Flounder gigging in the shallows around the Mustang Island Flats and get your fill of these delicious creatures, as well as targeting Trout by wade fishing!

We came to Corpus Christi because my dad did his flight training at the NAS, but the quality of fishing completely blew us away. We did a full day charter and then fished on our own for two more days, and we had an absolute blast. Lots of different areas to fish and very good accessibility to public waters.

I would absolutely recommend angler fishing for the first time in Aransas Pass! It was my first time and I’m already planning another trip back in July. I’m from Florida originally and I felt like I was at home. Great place to go angler fishing for the first time.

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.

We have used Captain OBT several times. He is great for tournaments or just a great day out on the water. My girlfriends and I look forward to our trips with him every year. He is patient, provides all the equipment we need, knows just where to go, and makes sure we always come back with fish! Looking forward to our 2022 trips!

We had so much fun going out with Captain Shayne. He was very patient with our son and taught him how to cast out his line and reel in his first trout. He took us all over the bay to make sure we caught our limit. Enjoyed the conversations with him, he didn’t make us feel pressured at any time. Planning on our next trip to go out with him again!

What a fantastic experience we had with Captain Zach and his first mate Willis! Both first rate fisherman and worth every penny we spent on their knowledge, experience, and most importantly their understanding. Trolled on the way out for big guys like barracuda and such, limited on snapper within an hour (if you can't hook em don't worry, they've got you) and had us back to Port in time for dinner and drinks. If you're prepared for an active day of fishing, look no further.

Water was rough going out made worse with the boat being a little small. Otherwise it was a good trip. Equipment and crew will go the extra mile to help you get the fish. Out first mate (tyler) really did a excellent job of making sure we all had fun especially my 15 Yr old son.

Went well. Captain had a small issue with a new motor in his boat. Got it sorted out pretty quick and then got us on the fish. Not a lot of action in June, but we enjoyed the experience. Thanks to Colby’s knowledge of the fish and the good spots in the area, we were able to catch enough for our dinner. 😁

My crew went out with Captain Brett Moore in June 2022. While things were slow to start the day, he kept at it and at the end of the trip we landed a few keeper Reds. It was a fun time and the captain did his best to accommodate the team. If you are looking for an enjoyable time, Popper Down Charters is for you.

This was our first time doing a fishing charter and I’m so glad we got these guys as our guide! As soon as we pulled up they baited the hooks and we dropped the lines and within 5 minutes we all where on fish! We limited out on red snapper and caught other fish, it was all around great experience and they are amazing. Definitely would go again with these guys
