trip description for Aransas Pass Inshore Slam in Aransas Pass

Climb aboard with Captain Kevin for an action-packed day of bay fishing the Coastal Bend out of Aransas Pass! Captain Kevin usually runs his half day trips from 7am - 11am but if the bite is slow, he will often stay out an extra hour to make sure you get on the fish. His full day trips usually run from 7am to 2-3pm which give you more time to hit both sides of the tide and find where the fish are biting best. But, Captain Kevin has years of experience under his belt and will take you where the bite is hottest. You can expect to target Flounder, Redfish, and Speckled Trout. Captain Kevin likes to use live bait, cut bait, and, on some occasions, lures to attract the best and biggest fish. If wade fishing is your preferred angling method, he will gladly take you out, you just need to provide your own waders and wading boots. For these trips, Captain Kevin likes to use a 23’ Haynie Bigfoot bay boat that provides a wide, spacious, and stable deck that will serve as your fishing platform. Captain Kevin likes to run these trips with two guests so that he can provide superior service so you both catch your limit or next personal best! Captain Kevin will provide everything you need for a productive day on the water, except a fishing license, which you’ll need to bring with you. He will have an icebox for your day’s catch as well as rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Come on down and make some memories with Captain Kevin and explore the secluded waters around Aransas Pass!

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

    These guys are top notch! We will book them again. They are professionals and communicate every move. Trey the first mate took care of our every need and worked well with Capt Addison. My wife and son enjoyed the trip too.

    Chris H. with Addison S. of Port Aransas, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    This trip was so fun, we caught snapper, gafftop, and 2 stingrays, and one was a monster. Andrew knew where to go and his boat was very nice, he’s the best hype man too, always excited when a fish is on! Jeff was the bomb. He made sure we always had our lines ready and in the water and helped us pull up them Rays when our arms were wore out!

    Katelyn B. with Andrew N. of Corpus Christi, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Dusty was a very good guide to fish with. He took us out on a last minute notice and we had a hard time finding the fish but he wouldnt leave until he put us on some fish and we limited out. Very respectful and fun to be around. I give him a 10 out of 10. I would recommend his services to anyone.

    Robert C. with Dusty M. of Corpus Christi, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Great captain, great fishing! We had experienced and inexperienced fishermen on the trip. Captain Alex took the time to teach and mentor the less experienced while supporting our more skilled fishermen. Just a great trip all the way around. We will most definitely be back for more. Thanks Alex, Semper Fi!

    Brent was the real deal. It put us on the fish and we made our limit by 8am and was able to just catch and release the rest of the morning. He is very knowledgeable about the best fishing holes. We got to see dolphins, stingrays, and turtles and he was a wealth of knowledge. I strongly recommend Brent and I hear is hunting/fishing combo is to die for. Can’t go wrong here!

    Sean M. with Brent H. of Rockport, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Shayne was an awesome guide. It was my two teenage boys and me. We moved several spots and caught about 25-30 trout. We had a great time and enjoyed the fishing trip.

    Great experience with Corey, we had 2 adults 3 kids and had plenty of room and caught several keeper redfish and trout! We also had a blast catching sharks, catfish, ladyfish, and others - Corey was super knowledgeable, friendly, and patient, we will definitely come back again and book a charter with Corey - we did a 4 hour charter and it went really smooth

    We had a trip booked with Captain Bryce the weekend after the tropical storm hit the coast, and as most know, storms can make it hard to catch fish. He was amazing and worked really hard to get us onto both trout and reds. We were able to catch a few because of his hard work even with the aftermath of the storm. Thank you for a great time!!

    Amy V. with Bryce W. of Rockport, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great time. Captain was a pleasure to be around. Caught a tone of fish could not be happier with the experience.

    Brantley J. with Mark H. of Port Aransas, Texas

    Shayne was an amazing guide!! We limited out on trout within about 20 minutes from when the first line was casted. My girlfriend who has only fished one other time was able to catch many fish and he helped her every step of the way! You won’t regret booking with Shayne 👍🏻

    Craig D. with Shayne M. of Corpus Christi, Texas
