Aransas Pass Fishing Charters

Aransas Pass offers premier inshore fishing with direct access to Redfish Bay, Estes Flats, and Corpus Christi Bay. From tailing reds to high-quality flounder, Aransas Pass offers endless opportunities for memorable days on the water. Whether you're looking for a family outing, a day on the water, or you want to just hone some casting skills, this is the place for you.

Aransas Pass Inshore Fishing

The endless cuts, channels, and over 14,000 acres of grass flats make Aransas Pass an inshore fishing paradise. Flounder opportunities peak during their migration to the gulf from October to December. They can be caught on a rod and reel in channels or gigged in shallow water under bright light. Speckled Trout fishing peaks between December and March but can be caught into the summer. On warm days trout can be found in shallow water and near drop-offs. If the weather turns cold, these fish will often move to deeper water. March and April tend to be the prime time for rounding up sheepshead. Throw shrimp around rocks and jetties and you are sure to get hooked on sheepshead.

Redfish on the Flats

Late summer to fall is the redfish run ahead of their winter spawn. This is when you will get the big bull reds coming in and get your shot at a new personal best. Throwing live or artificial bait around jetties, and shallow bars can bring success throughout the year. If you enjoy a challenge, sight fishing for reds on the grass flats is bound to test your skills and make your heart race.
