The northwestern part of Corpus Christi Bay might be less known, but Nueces Bay fishing can definitely rival the action of its big brother. Fed by the rich Nueces River, this natural estuary will leave you in awe of its beauty. It’s been here for 9,000 years, and it’s not going anywhere, so come on down and recharge your batteries!

Nueces Bay is the natural habitat of a wide variety of wildlife, and this is especially true for the fish species you’ll find here. All of the Lone Star State’s inshore trophies call these waters home. Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder – this is the famous trio to go after. Add to that the likes of Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Black Drum, and you’ve got yourself an action-packed day!

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the day with your family, a half day trip in Nueces Bay is just what you need. You’ll get to explore the waters and take in the scenery while showing your kids the beauty of the natural world. If you’re looking to maximize your chances and fill your bags, a full day trip is the way to go. And don’t forget Flounder gigging – this Texan adventure is something you should try at least once.

All that’s left to do is find a fishing charter to take you out, and the fun can begin. Finding a charter here is easy – just head over to Corpus Christi or Portland, and you’ll see them dotted along the shore. Take your pick, and off you go!
