If you want to catch fish theres alot of little bait shop piers to fish on. The surf is also great. I suggest if you go on a charter, find out how it works first before you pay. Alot of these guys know their stuff when ot comes to targeted fish. As long as you know the rules up front you should leave happy.

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!

Corpus Christi is a great place to go fishing. Planning on doing a week fishing trip next year.

The fish were not biting on our morning out, but I believe it was related to a storm that was coming in. I would still recommend fishing in the bay.

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.
