If a line-peeling, drag-screaming offshore trip is what you're after, you're in the right place! Captain Scott is a pro when it comes to offshore fishing in Port Aransas, Texas, and he loves to show clients what's out there in the deep blue. On an offshore charter with Captain Scott, you'll hunt down a variety of sportfish species, including Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo—all terrific fighting fish that are great to eat as well. Because these fish love to hit fast-moving lures and bait, you'll focus on trolling at different depths in order to attract bites. When a big Mahi or Wahoo takes the hook, strap in for a fight! These are lightning-fast pelagic fish that do not want to get caught, and getting one over the rail is a challenge. You'll fight the fish from Captain Scott's 42' Hatteras sportfisher, a perfect vessel for offshore fishing. She features a comfortable cabin when you want to get out of the sun, plus a big deck with tons of room for reeling in a trophy! Captain Scott will provide everything you need for an epic trip, including rods, reels, baits, and tackle. We recommend that you bring proper clothing, a hat, sunscreen, and a cooler with some snacks and drinks. Get out there and hook a personal best! Read More

What is amberjack fishing in Corpus Christi all about?

Amberjack, known for their brute strength and powerful fighting ability, are a sought-after species among anglers in Corpus Christi. These large and aggressive fish are commonly found in offshore waters, particularly around underwater structures such as oil rigs, wrecks, and artificial reefs. Amberjack are prized for their thrilling battles and are considered one of the toughest fighters in the Gulf of Mexico, making them a favorite target for anglers seeking an adrenaline-pumping fishing experience.

In Corpus Christi, anglers target amberjack using a variety of techniques. One effective method is bottom fishing near offshore structures where amberjack are known to congregate. Anglers typically use live bait such as large baitfish or squid, presented on heavy tackle to withstand the powerful strikes and relentless fighting of these formidable fish. Another productive technique is vertical jigging, where anglers drop metal jigs or weighted rigs vertically to the bottom and then jig them up and down to mimic the movement of injured baitfish. This technique can be highly effective for enticing strikes from amberjack, particularly when they are actively feeding near the bottom.

Furthermore, amberjack fishing in Corpus Christi can be productive year-round, with peak seasons typically occurring during the warmer months when water temperatures are higher. During these times, amberjack are more active and may congregate in larger numbers around offshore structures, providing anglers with increased opportunities for success. However, amberjack can still be encountered in Corpus Christi's waters throughout the year, particularly around areas with suitable habitat and baitfish activity. With their impressive size, strength, and fighting ability, amberjack provide anglers in Corpus Christi with exhilarating fishing opportunities and unforgettable battles.

What are the most popular months to fish for amberjack fishing in Corpus Christi?

In Corpus Christi, the amberjack season is characterized by fluctuations in abundance and activity levels throughout the year, influenced by various environmental factors. Generally, amberjack are more prevalent and active during the warmer months of late spring, summer, and early fall. During these times, the warmer water temperatures stimulate feeding activity among amberjack, making them more aggressive and easier to locate for anglers. Anglers targeting amberjack during these seasons often find success around offshore structures such as oil rigs, wrecks, and artificial reefs, where these fish congregate in search of prey.

While amberjack may be more abundant and active during the warmer months, they can still be encountered in Corpus Christi's waters throughout the year. During the cooler months of winter, amberjack may migrate to deeper offshore waters or southward in search of warmer temperatures, resulting in fewer encounters with anglers. However, dedicated anglers may still have opportunities to catch amberjack during winter months by targeting areas with suitable habitat and baitfish activity. Additionally, amberjack may be encountered by anglers targeting other species, such as grouper or snapper, around offshore structures.

Overall, the amberjack season in Corpus Christi offers anglers opportunities to target these powerful and hard-fighting fish year-round, with peak abundance and activity levels occurring during the warmer months. Anglers interested in targeting amberjack should pay attention to factors such as water temperature, currents, and baitfish activity to maximize their chances of success. Whether bottom fishing near offshore structures or vertical jigging over wrecks and reefs, anglers in Corpus Christi can enjoy the thrill of targeting amberjack for an exhilarating fishing experience.

What techniques are popular for catching amberjack in Corpus Christi?

When targeting amberjack in Corpus Christi, anglers often employ a variety of techniques to entice these powerful and hard-fighting fish. One effective method is bottom fishing near offshore structures such as oil rigs, wrecks, and artificial reefs, where amberjack are known to congregate in search of prey. Anglers typically use live bait such as large baitfish or squid, presented on heavy tackle to withstand the powerful strikes and relentless fighting of these formidable fish. Bottom fishing for amberjack requires patience and skill, as anglers must carefully position their baits near the structure and be prepared for the sudden, aggressive strikes of these strong fish.

Another productive technique for amberjack fishing in Corpus Christi is vertical jigging, particularly over wrecks and reefs where these fish are commonly found. Anglers drop metal jigs or weighted rigs vertically to the bottom and then jig them up and down to mimic the movement of injured baitfish. Vertical jigging can be highly effective for enticing strikes from amberjack, particularly when they are actively feeding near the bottom. Anglers often use heavy jigging rods and reels with high line capacity to handle the powerful runs and deep dives of these hard-fighting fish.

Furthermore, trolling near offshore structures or along underwater contours can also be a successful technique for targeting amberjack in Corpus Christi. Anglers can troll with diving plugs or rigged bait to cover a larger area of water and locate actively feeding amberjack. Once located, anglers can adjust trolling speed and lure depth to match the behavior of the fish and increase their chances of success.

    We did not have a good experience. The seas were very rough, we got sea sick, completely drenched and my husband fell out of his wheelchair when the boat hit a big wave at about mile 13 or 14. He was stayed seated on the floor of the boat as we attempted to continue out. After about 1.5 hours, we were less than 20 miles out, we decided to ask the captain to turn around.

    Great trip with James (AKA Grandpa) seas were a little rough but that's too be expected. Had a Member of our group get very ill and not only was James's first thought his safety but we cut our trip short and he even discounted the fees. Very thankful and will use them again. I can't put the review in and not mention Daryl, his mate, as well. To notch crew!!
