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 25527 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.

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.

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!

Targeting Vermillion Snapper was great this time of year. 4-5 foot swells can be tough to deal with for not regularly seafaring patrons but managing expectations can still bring a Great experience!

Our group of 5 was pretty inexperienced and Captain Kevin was super patient and made the trip very fun for everyone. Our ages ranged from 56-74, so we needed some extra assistance. He was definitely kept busy as we were catching quite a lot of fish, but unfortunately most of them weren’t keepers. We did catch 4 that we could keep and eat. Yum! Definitely would book again with him.

Captain Kevin is a good man with good character. My son and I have wonderful memories to share for years to come because of C.K. expertise and thoughtfulness. He made sure we got on fish even if we went a bit over time. We landed a 35 1/2 inch Red fish and 2 large Black Drum. Almost 50lbs of meat! Captain Kevin and Fishswirl is my choice for my family and friends from here on out! Thank you Skipper from González Family.

Fishing with captain mac is a must do if looking for a fishing charter near port Aransas. We asked to catch some big fish and him along with Joey delivered! He took us to 4 different spots so we weren’t just fishing the same spot the whole trip. Fished by the jetties, two rigs and another spot before heading back in. Had a great day catching 7 bull reds! Catfish, croakers , red snappers and a dogfish!. Thanks Mac and Joey!

The fog was really bad when we went out. I took two of my sons and my daughter. We all caught something. I had a giant get away. We could see other fishers for a while and we were doing better than others. Shayne was very knowledgeable and he did a great job. I'm planning on using him again on our next trip to Port Aransas.

Had a Great time fishing with Captain Kevin!! It was late December with temperatures in the mid to upper 60’s Fishing this time of year can be spotty at best but Kevin knew where to find fish. We fished for 3-4 hours and caught almost 2 limits of Black Drum and several Trout (to small to keep) but still fun to catch. This was a father and son trip worth every penny!!! Thanks again to Captain Kevin!!!!
