Get excited about the trip of lifetime with Captain Emilio here who invites you on a deep-sea fishing adventure in the productive waters of the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of South Padre Island, Texas. For these 6, 8, 10 and 12-hour adventures, Captain Emilio uses his badass 35’ Bertram offshore sportfishing boat that can handle up to 6 anglers. The vessel has a powerful twin Caterpillar 450 HP engine for a combined 900 HP's of propulsion power and modern navigation technology which guarantees you a safe and quick trip to your destination. Its impossible to say for sure what monsters lurk at each depth at any given time, but on shorter trips you can expect to catch Tripletail, Snapper, Skipjack Tuna, while longer trips give opportunities for bigger pelagics like Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and bigger tuna species! Emilio will provide live bait, rods, reels, and tackle. *the fuel price is included in the price of the trip so there are no surprises at the end of your trip!* There will also be a first mate at your disposal all the time. All you need to bring is a valid Texas Fishing License, food and drinks of your choice, and an ice chest for your day’s catch. Come and explore this fishing paradise and make some everlasting memories with Captain Emilio! Read More

Our fishing trip on the Chachi was amazing! Emilio and his deckhand, Logan, were friendly and put us on the fish.

The trip was amazing! We all had a wonderful time, & the captain & mate were very helpful. They also answered all of our questions throughout the day. Even my son who was seasick the whole time said he was glad he went.

Captain Emilio and his first mate(I apologize for not remembering your name), were wonderful. They visited with us before departure. We were at the end of Red Snapper season, but hey, we got our limit. Plus mackerel and Bonita. Captain Emilio did an excellent job getting us to the perfect location. I will say, taking the grandchildren (9& 4 years of age), the first mate did an outstanding job teaching the curious 9/year old. She learned a lot, as did I. I’m so glad we held off deep sea fishing until we were at South Padre(the other option was in Corpus), nope this was my favorite. I would tell anyone to make an 8-hr trip, and then scale back if needed. We had our quota of Red Snapper and continued to troll for the next hour or so. I would definitely recommend Captain Emilio !!!

Capt. Emilio and his crew were professional, attentive, and knowledgeable. My son and I were given options regarding what kind of fishing we wanted to do and they obliged. I give Capt Emilio a very high recommendation and would definitely fish with him again.

Expensive boat ride. Not a single fish. Captain not interested in our experience. Shrugged his shoulders and said " oh well, we tried ".Would not recommend. Worst trip ever.
