Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Mustang Island

According to customer reviews, Affordable Guide Service, Fillabite Guide Service, and Fishswirl Guide Services are some of the most popular fishing charters in Mustang Island. Full list of top fishing charters in Mustang Island.

The average price for a private 4 hour Mustang Island fishing trip is $650, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $1,235 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Affordable Guide Service, Fillabite Guide Service, and Fishswirl Guide Services all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Mustang Island.

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 Mustang Island fishing scene represents Texas at its finest. The fishing season never stops (although it has its peak in summer) and you can catch plenty of fish no matter what direction you head in. Offering different opportunities for both novices and hard-core anglers, this location truly has something for everyone.
 
The island is a natural border that separates Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. This also splits fishing trips into two main types: bay and gulf trips. Half day trips in the bay are family favorites – you don’t need to be experienced, the kids have their fun catching the bait, and there’s no choppy water as you’re staying close to shore. The fish you target will be just as tasty as they are exciting, such as Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, or Sheepshead.
 
For those ready to embrace a rod-bending challenge, there’s nothing better than a full day offshore adventure. Head out to the Gulf and troll for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, or Sailfish. Big game fishing is best in fall. Closer to shore, you’ll find highly-prized Red Snapper, Amberjack, and Cobia.
 
Whether you start your adventure from Corpus Christi in the south or Port Aransas in the north, you’ll have equally good chances of a great catch. Cast, pull, fill the ice bucket, and then fill your belly with tasty fish!
 

Rules & Regulations

All anglers 17 and older need to purchase a Texas saltwater fishing license. You can keep only one Redfish over 28 inches. For more than one, you’ll need to purchase the additional Red Drum tag.

Based on 26549 reviews by FishingBooker anglers

January
The beginning of the year is best for bay fishing trips. You’ll have great chances of catching Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum.
 
February

In February, Black Drum fishing gets even better. If you’re interested in nearshore fishing, you’ll have a blast targeting Mako Shark.

March

The end of winter still offers better bay fishing trips, compared to the Gulf. Target “The Texan Big Three” – Redfish, Flounder, and Speckled Trout.

April
With spring, nearshore fishing trips are getting better. Head out a bit further and target Amberjack, Cobia, and Kingfish.
 
May

Amberjack and Cobia swim these waters at their full capacity and they could make a great catch. Inshore, you’ll find lots of Redfish and Black Drum.

June

In June, everybody tends to focus on one fish only – Red Snapper. The season is open, so book your spot on time!

July

With the Red Snapper season still open, there’s plenty of action in the Gulf. Catch this prestigious fish and enjoy it for lunch.

August

The peak of summer will take you far offshore, where you can target Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, and Wahoo. 

September

Summer may be almost over but big game fishing is very hot. Find a guide who can take you trolling for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and other offshore species.

October

If you won’t settle for less than a breathtaking trophy, take an offshore trip and target Blue Marlin. 

November

There’s something for everyone in November. Offshore fishing trips still offer great catch, while bay trips bring more Redfish, Flounder, and Sheepshead.

December

The end of the year is best spent fishing inshore. You can catch a bunch of Flounder, Black Drum, and Redfish.

Understand that fishing is mostly about conditions, the angler’s skill, and then luck. The only thing a guide can do is get you onto fish. It’s up to you to hook them and reel them in. Catching fish is never guaranteed so go in with the right expectations and you will have a wonderful day and hopefully catch something to eat for dinner.

Corpus Christi has lots to offer for anglers of all different levels of experience. If and when you do get out on the water, please wear sunscreen and reapply ever so often! Next time you are out on the water I wish you nothing but the best and fish on!

I am not knowledgeable enough to offer any meaningful advice. But I suppose everybody knows that it is just too hot to fish during the middle of the day in August. A morning or late afternoon trip would be more pleasant.

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.

Do yourself a favor and book with Capt. Kenny. Went with 6 of us for my son’s birthday and he worked very hard to make it fun for us on a day when the fish weren’t biting that much. We will be back in his boat again for sure.

Captain Colby was great! He made us feel welcome, gave great instructions, and joked around with us the whole trip. Most importantly though, he put us on fish (limited out on trout in less than two hours both days).

Captain Chris did a great job getting us on plenty of fish. He was professional and knowledgeable. He spent extra time making sure my young son caught plenty of fish freeing me to enjoy the trip and focus on my own fishing. He even spent extra time offering educational information about the fish, kindness and bits of "life wisdom" to my son. We all had a great day and would love to return!

We spent the morning with Captain Joe Wilson in Aransas Bay. Caught more than our share so threw some back, gave some away, and ate the rest for My husband’s 81st birthday. Trout & Redfish, plus hardhead catfish we threw back. We enjoyed seeing sunrise, dolphins, beautiful birds, and being on the water. Captain Joe is a fish finder extraordinaire. He cleaned & fileted for us. Would highly recommend & fish with Joe again. Thanks Captain Joe😎

Captain Ronnie was amazing. He put us on the fish all day. We moved site to site and ended up catching over 30 reds. He was kind and very service oriented. He fit right in with our team, laughing and carrying on with all four of us. It was a great day and a trip we will never forget. We hope to do it again next year!
