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.

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.

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!

Great trip and incredible Captain. We have had some serious wind as of late, and our day, was no exception. Even under tough circumstances, Captain Kevin worked hard and found us plenty of trophy trout. This was our favorite trip to date, and Capt Kevin made it so. We will definitely book again.

A windy day, but Capt Robert found fish. We limited out on Speckled Trout early and then caught a passel of big Reds - most over the slot limit. Had hoped to get into some black drum in the afternoon, but Capt Robert stayed in the Red fishing mode hoping for some slot legal fish. I would have preferred to try for some drum.

Captain Steven knows where to find the fish! He was awesome at teaching you how to read the water and giving instructions in how to bring them in. We caught some big red drum and brought home our limit. My dad and I had a great time and will for sure book Captain Steven when we are back in Port Aransas.

Robert Carr is the man! Took a family trip with Robert on 05.14.22 and had an amazing time. From the moment we stepped foot on Robert’s boat the fun started. Robert’s boat, equipment and fishing experience is top notch. We can’t thank Robert enough for such a memorable day, he knocked it out of the park! I highly recommend Robert for your next trip, you won’t be disappointed. We all left with smiles and the conversation of our next trip with Robert. Many thanks from the Hopcus Family.

Had a great time time on an afternoon fishing trip! Capt Alex was super flexible of where we wanted to dock out of in the area & gave us really good guidance on where he thought was best throughout the entire trip. Definitely knows what he’s doing. I’m a beginner at fishing but my husband has some experience & he was able to accommodate to both of our levels. Highly recommend, super sweet man & also helped fillet our catch to get it grilled right next door.
