Deep Sea Fishing in Port Aransas

When a city is called the “Fishing Capital of Texas,” you know that you’re in for some premier action on the water. Deep sea fishing charters in Port Aransas are busy year-round, and that only makes sense, seeing that the bite in the bluewater is excellent pretty much all the time.

 

The beauty of Port Aransas’s deep sea fishery is its diversity. Depending on how far from shore you go, a different variety of species is at your disposal. Some 20 miles out, you’ll be in the realm of big Mackerel and Cobia, as well as different Snappers. Go further, and you’ll be in the playground of Billfish, Tuna, Bull Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo.

 

If you’re coming to Port Aransas to battle giants, you’ll be traveling to the continental shelf, where the water is over 1,000 feet deep. Here, you might come face to gills with the mighty Yellowfin Tuna, Marlin, and Swordfish. Also, some 50 miles from land, you can go after Tilefish and massive deepwater Grouper species.

 

When booking a trip with deep sea fishing charters in Port Aransas, you should aim for longer expeditions. Full day trips last around 8 hours and can take you to all the prized pelagics. If you’d like to explore the offshore oil rigs (feeding hubs of the bigguns), consider 12-hour options or even overnight trips for maximum productivity. A lot of captains also offer specialized excursions, where you can target  specific species like Amberjack, Tuna, or Billfish.

 

There are several marinas in Port Aransas where you can find a reliable charter boat to take you out. Port Aransas City Harbor, Fishermans Wharf, and West Cotter Avenue are just a few of the most popular ones you can check out.

Be realistic… not everyone in the trip is going to catch 5 fish each! Go with a great captain and you’ll have a good time regardless of the number of fish you catch!

Just make sure you take sun protection and sweater or light jacket for your trip as it can be cool in the morning otherwise your Captain will take care of everything else for your fishing adventures.

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.

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!
