Excited to catch some fish in Corpus Christi? Captain Andrew is here to make it happen! Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Andrew knows them forwards and back. Families making a day of it will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. And, you can’t go wrong with snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty belly! Your excursion begins aboard a 25’ Sea Hunt center console with space for 6 passengers. It has all the essentials. Your captain will provide rods and reels, as well as lures. Live bait is available, but be sure to ask about it so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

The rig trip is a great trip for a beginner who wants to fish on the ocean but, just isn't quite ready to fight waves and spend a bunch of time traveling. For some, it also provides a sense of relief being so close to the shore where you can clearly see land. It is also always fun to see some of the massive Loggerhead Turtles and Dolphins. Read More

What is red snapper fishing in Corpus Christi all about?

Red snapper fishing in Corpus Christi, Texas, offers anglers an exhilarating and rewarding experience in the Gulf of Mexico's rich waters. Corpus Christi is renowned for its abundant populations of red snapper, prized for their firm white flesh and delicious flavor. The prime season for red snapper fishing typically runs from June through August, during which time anglers flock to the Gulf in search of these sought-after fish. Charter boats, private vessels, and shore anglers alike venture offshore to target red snapper, using a variety of techniques to entice these bottom-dwelling predators.

One popular method for red snapper fishing in Corpus Christi is bottom fishing, which involves dropping baited rigs to the seafloor where red snapper congregate around natural and artificial structures such as reefs, wrecks, and oil rigs. Anglers often use live bait such as squid, mullet, or pinfish, as well as cut bait such as menhaden or sardines, to attract hungry snapper. Additionally, anglers can employ artificial lures such as jigs and soft plastics to entice strikes from these aggressive fish. Patience and persistence are key when bottom fishing for red snapper, as anglers must wait for the telltale bite before setting the hook and reeling in their prized catch.

Another effective technique for red snapper fishing in Corpus Christi is drift fishing, particularly popular among anglers targeting larger specimens in deeper waters. Drift fishing involves drifting with the current while presenting baits or lures at various depths to cover a wide area and maximize chances of encountering feeding snapper. Anglers often use heavy tackle and multiple hook rigs to handle the strong fighting abilities of red snapper, which can grow to impressive sizes in the Gulf waters off Corpus Christi. Whether fishing from a boat or shore, anglers in Corpus Christi can expect thrilling battles and bountiful catches when targeting red snapper in the Gulf's fertile fishing grounds.

What are the most popular months to fish for red snapper in Corpus Christi?

Red snapper fishing seasons in Corpus Christi, Texas, are eagerly anticipated by anglers as these prized fish migrate into the Gulf of Mexico's waters off the coast. The primary red snapper season typically opens in June and runs through August, offering anglers ample opportunity to target these delicious bottom-dwellers. During this time, red snapper congregate around offshore reefs, wrecks, and oil rigs, providing anglers with ideal conditions for landing a trophy catch. The warm Gulf waters and abundant prey make this period particularly fruitful for red snapper fishing in Corpus Christi.

In addition to the primary season, Corpus Christi also benefits from extended federal and state seasons, providing anglers with even more opportunities to target red snapper throughout the year. These extended seasons often occur in the fall and winter months, allowing anglers to continue pursuing red snapper when other fishing opportunities may be limited. Furthermore, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department occasionally announces additional open days for red snapper fishing based on the latest stock assessments and quotas, ensuring sustainable management of this valuable fishery while maximizing recreational opportunities for anglers in Corpus Christi and beyond.

Understanding the seasonal patterns and regulations governing red snapper fishing is crucial for anglers planning a successful outing in Corpus Christi. Anglers must stay informed about any changes to season dates, bag limits, and size restrictions to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations. Additionally, monitoring weather conditions and sea forecasts is essential for safe and enjoyable fishing experiences offshore. By staying abreast of the latest information and employing effective fishing techniques, anglers can make the most of red snapper fishing seasons in Corpus Christi and create unforgettable memories on the water.

What techniques are popular for catching red snapper in Corpus Christi?

Red snapper fishing techniques in Corpus Christi, Texas, often involve a combination of bottom fishing and drift fishing methods to target these prized fish in the Gulf of Mexico's productive waters. Bottom fishing entails dropping baited rigs to the seafloor near underwater structures such as reefs, wrecks, and oil rigs where red snapper congregate. Anglers use a variety of baits, including live or cut fish such as squid, mullet, or sardines, to entice hungry snapper. Patience is key when bottom fishing for red snapper, as anglers must wait for the telltale bite before setting the hook and reeling in their catch.

Drift fishing is another popular technique used by anglers targeting red snapper in Corpus Christi. This method involves drifting with the current while presenting baits or lures at various depths to cover a wide area and maximize chances of encountering feeding snapper. Anglers often use heavy tackle and multiple hook rigs to handle the strong fighting abilities of red snapper. By drifting over known snapper hotspots such as reefs or artificial structures, anglers can increase their chances of success and land a prized red snapper.

In addition to traditional bottom and drift fishing techniques, vertical jigging has gained popularity among anglers targeting red snapper in Corpus Christi. Anglers deploy heavy jigs to rapidly descend through the water column, enticing aggressive strikes from snapper lurking near the bottom. Vertical jigging allows anglers to cover a lot of water efficiently and is particularly effective when targeting suspended or actively feeding red snapper. By mastering a combination of these techniques and staying informed about seasonal patterns and regulations, anglers can increase their chances of success when targeting red snapper in Corpus Christi's productive fishing grounds.

What other species are popular in Corpus Christi?

In Corpus Christi, anglers have a plethora of species to target beyond the renowned red snapper. Venturing into the bountiful waters of the Gulf, one might find themselves reeling in speckled trout, a prized catch known for its delicious flavor and impressive fighting spirit. These feisty fish thrive in the bay's shallower waters, making them accessible and exciting targets for both seasoned fishermen and novices alike.

For those seeking a more challenging pursuit, the waters off Corpus Christi also harbor the elusive flounder. Renowned for their stealthy nature and cunning tactics, flounder require patience and skill to hook. Anglers often find success targeting these flatfish near sandy bottoms and around structures like jetties or bridges. Landing a sizable flounder promises not only a sense of accomplishment but also a delectable reward for the dinner table.

Additionally, anglers can cast their lines in search of the hard-fighting black drum, another prized species abundant in the Corpus Christi area. With their distinctive black coloration and powerful runs, black drum offer anglers an exhilarating battle. These hefty fish frequent the bay's deeper channels and are known to strike on a variety of baits, making them a popular target for those looking to test their angling skills against a formidable opponent. Whether targeting speckled trout, flounder, black drum, or the myriad of other species that call these waters home, Corpus Christi offers anglers an unforgettable fishing experience brimming with excitement and adventure.

    Captain Corey was fantastic! Went out of his way to get the “right” bait (which it was!). We caught enough fish, on a really windy day, for the kids to have wonderful memories. He’s great with kids, has plenty of interesting stories and just a pleasure to be around. Book with Corey! You won’t regret it!

    Awesome fishing trip! Booked two days back to back for my boys and extended family, but was canceled on a month out and pushed to Captain Corey. Turned out to be the best thing that could have happened! Captain Corey was super available, coordinated and communicated well in advance, adjusted trips to give us the best experience. First day was slower (cold weather) and he adjusted timing to make it awesome. Limited out second day because of him!!! Haven’t met a team yet that will work as hard as he did to put us on fish and ensure we had fun! Like fishing with family! We will book with him each time from here on out. Thank you.

    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.

    Gabriel D. with Danny D. of Port Aransas, Texas

    We had an incredible fishing trip with Corey! Our group of four had a fantastic time, thanks to his expertise and friendly demeanor. Corey made sure everyone had bait on their lines, and he effortlessly adapted to our varying levels of fishing experience. His easy-going nature and knowledge of the sport created the perfect atmosphere for a memorable day on the water. We highly recommend Corey as a fishing guide!

    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!!

    Wow, if I could add 10 stars, that might be enough. Captain Corey was knowledgeable, personable and he offered up a treasure trove of tips and anecdotes that made the time fly. He even gave me great advice on where to get the best local seafood for my dinner. I caught a massive stingray on our outing, which is an experience I won’t soon forget. I highly recommend his guide services, regardless of your skill level. His love for fishing is matched by his expertise. You’ll have a great time, even if the fish aren’t biting. But he seems to know where they are, even when other boats are out of luck!
