Be sure the 1st Mate is on Boat for the longer Trips and the Catch is Cleaned and Filleted as Advertised while Fishing. Cleaning Fish after 8-Hour Trip can be time consuming and unnecessary. Not expected Additional Expense

Lure and bait fishing in the shallows seems to be the ticket for speckled trout, drum, and flounder. The people are wonderfully friendly and helpful. We hired Laguna Lure Fishing with Captain John and couldn't be happier!

Find a good fishing guide to save you time and frustration in trying to fish the Texas Gulf, especially in the Corpus area that has soooooo much fishable water. We were a little early for the Reds (later in May would have been better) on our May trip.

If you can, go for a charter: those guys are going to really know where the fish are and the best way to catch them! With all of the places to go fishing, it can be a little overwhelming, so it helps to have someone who really knows these waters. A great charter for the bay is Team Liberty Guide Services, Captain Jack really knows his stuff!

Stay in the channels and bay for your first trip. Action out in the Gulf is hit or miss and there can be long waits between.

Make sure to follow all recommendations such as sun screen and hats. Pack the patience. Not all fish will bite. Enjoy the scenery and the company.

Be prepared if the winds are high. Fishing is rough. We stayed for a week and only one day was decent, can't control the weather obviously.

It is hot. Hiring a guide for a morning trip is the way to go. They supply the bait and usually get you on some fish.

Bait availability close to Memorial Day is limited. Everything depends on the quality of the guide and weather conditions. This was not my first time to fish in Corpus.

do not expect to catch crabs in March. Also maps of the local area would be very helpful, they do sell a hook and line map but it is somewhat costly.

If you can, get a guide. If you can't, talk to others that are on piers, working the shores, talk to the guys at the bait shops. They're a friendly bunch down there.

Don’t bring bananas and put sun screen on before you get on boat. Sunscreen is bad for the live well (fact that I learned real quick).

Inshore or offshore is great fishing during this time in Corpus Christi! Both provide a good variety of fish.

May is a great month, and in the past, I've limited on trout, reds and drum in the same day. I believe Hurricane Harvey may have influenced the fishing this year.

Let your Capt know you want to catch a Red Fish. The fight of a Red makes fishing what it should be, exciting!

Spray sunblock, not rub on, lots of water, and if youre looking for more fishing after your guided service, go to the Packery Channel bridge.

I think anyone looking for a great time fishing should book a guided half or whole day trip with Capt. Jack Cooper. You won't be dissapointed.
