Guided by Alana Simon
Inshore Jetty Nearshore
Join Captain Alana for a memorable fishing trip in Texas. She'll help you fish inshore, nearshore, as well as explore lovely reefs in search of a great catch!
If you've been looking to do some classic Texas fishing and find a new personal best, look no further than this trip with Captain Alana! She's an expert angler and knows exactly how to put you on some big fish in the Laguna Madre, one of the best bodies of water here on the Texas coast. The Laguna is a large, shallow saltwater inlet that's protected from the tides and waves, making it a perfect environment for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder—the three most popular inshore gamefish in the state! Captain Alana also runs trips to the Port of Brownsville where you can chase several different species while seeing Naval ships being decommissioned such as the USS Kitty Hawk. You'll also be able to chase Cobia, Mangrove Snapper, and even the occasional Texas Tarpon! No matter what species you're aiming to catch, Captain Alana will put you on 'em and make sure you have the right tackle and gear to stack fish in the cooler. Generally, you'll be fishing shrimp on popping corks, which really attract big bites. Be ready, because you never know which bite is going to be your personal record! Captain Alana runs these inshore trips from her 25' Moody bay boat, a perfect shallow-draft vessel for this kind of water. She's powered by a brand-new 250-HP Suzuki, so you'll have no problem getting out to where the fish are. She also sports PowerPole for easy maneuvering in shallow water. Alana provides everything you need for a great trip, so just bring some sunscreen, a cooler with some snacks and drinks, and your Texas saltwater fishing license and you'll be good to go! Read More
Captain Alana was awesome! Very professional, had the boat clean and gear ready to go as soon as we got to the dock we were off. Boat was good size had plenty of room for everyone to walk around. Even took us close to the launch site to see the Space X Starship. She was constantly on the phone with other guides trying to find the best bite possible. We caught Speckled Trout, large Catfish and saw a bunch of large red drums but even hitting them in the head with the bait they wouldn't bite... Had a weather change and rockets going off in the area so may have had something to do with it. But we were the only boat that day really catching anything. I would highly recommend Captain Alana. Will decently book her for future visits to go Tarpon Fishing!!! …
Alana knew where to go and was great with the kids.
We had a great time fishing, the captain informed us of history of the area and show us around. She also put us on fish and kept us in the water. Highly recommend this guide!
Captain Alana worked hard to find fish for us, was very congenial and very knowledgeable of the waters and various fish. We caught speckled trout, catfish and a sting ray.
Slow bite after a full moon and wind pushing 25 mph captain put us on ‘em. Caught mostly under slot but was able to catch lunch. Catch and Eat at Mahi Nic’s best ever.
Alana was most helpful. She took good care of us and put us on a lot of good spots! Unfortunately, there was not much fishy participation. She handled the boat like a pro!
I can't recommend Capt. Alana enough! Great clean boat. Room enough for 6, perfect for 4 or 2. Her gear is new and well maintained. She took us to the Port of Brownsville. Lots of structure to fish including the decommissioned aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. We caught lots of fish including mangrove snapper, sheepshead, black drum and others. Capt. Alana is from a commercial and sport fishing family and knows where to find fish. I HIGHLY recommend her. I will be booking her again next time I'm in SPI. …
Alana was great today! We caught a lot of Skip Jacks(Slimers, Ditch Pickles) which were fun to catch. They fought like a cross between a bass or pike! We caught some really nice Speckled Trout in the slot that we were able to keep. She was very knowledgeable about the area and local conservation as well. On the way back we were able to see a hand full of dolphins on our way back! We would definitely fish with her again! Thanks from Minnesota! …
Captain Alana was excellent, extremely professional but still personable! The weather and other un avoidable issues made the fishing difficult but her dedication to her clients having a memorable trip regardless of the conditions! She went above and beyond! Great experience and great memories!
Alana was great for us! Caught a Texas slam within the first hour of leaving the dock! She was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer all the annoying questions i could think to ask. Boat was very nice and well kept and so was the gear. We plan on Booking with her next time we want to head out and catch some great fish! …
