Surf Fishing Charters Near Corpus Christi, Tx
Growing up in a ranching family that has been in the Victoria, Texas area since the 1870s, James F. Welder developed early on a deep appreciation for the land and wildlife. His passion for fishing the Gulf coast comes from spending weekends and summers in Rockport, Texas. There he began crafting his fishing skills at age 4 with his father, along the San Antonio Bay system south to Lower Laguna Madre. After attending Southwest Texas University, James obtained his Captain's license in 2005 to share his knowledge and experience on the water with others. In addition to conventional fishing, James has been an avid fly fisherman for 15 years. He has spent time in the Bahamas learning new techniques for fly casting, which he can pass along to fly-fishing clients at any level. His knack for teaching first timers with his carefree, relaxed attitude will make learning to fish a memorable and rewarding experience. Capt. James has been guiding since 2005 and has grown up fishing the Port Aransas and Rockport areas all his life. We will be fishing primarily for Redfish, Trout, Flounder and Black Drum. He uses a wide variety of techniques in order for his clients to have great day on the water. He runs a 25’ Majek Illusion. Kids are more than welcome. Read More

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
If you are looking to catch fish at any experience level and have a trip to remember, Mitch is an outstanding and friendly guide! He was well prepared, communicated times and location well, and was very knowledgeable of the location and local wildlife. He even fileted and packaged our catch for us. Above and beyond service. highly recommended by me and my father!

We had a great time with Kevin. Caught our limit and super nice.
Roland H. with Kevin G. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Amazing day on the ocean with captain Joe. Captain Joe is a great guy who is very personable and fun to be with. He helped my kids fish the whole time and they each caught a ton of fish. He was very knowledgeable and answered the million questions I asked all day. I will book with him again in the future.
Mike M. with Joe S. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Josh was very polite professional. We had a blast caught tons of fish . Josh made sure we moved around to keep on top of them and all we had to do was cast and catch it was great
David D. with Josh W. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Captain Caleb was helpful and professional. Took my son visiting from Washington. We both had a great time.
Glen N. with Caleb S. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Tristan and his partner provided us with a great afternoon experience, we booked the full tour and all 15 of us got to participate in landing large bull shark. will definitely do this again.
Daniel M. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
We all had a great time with Tristan and his crew! These guys are awesome! We unfortunately didn't get a fish, but that's fishing. They had some fun beach games to play and we all had a great time together! Definitely will be back with Tristan!
Burton S. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Didn’t catch a shark this time, but we will be back. Tristan is an awesome guy and we all had fun hanging out with him
Eduardo R. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
We didn't get a hit, but learned about the process and had a great time. Tristan and Corbit were great. There may have been a snag with the booking and guide schedule coordination, but Tristan resolved the double booking glitch. Booking agent was unable to answer basic questions about the trip, but better information with call back.
Julie P. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Tristan and Benny were really great with our large group, continually answered questions and attentive. We unfortunately didn't get any bites but we plan to book again and would recommend them for any group size. Thanks for making our charter so much fun. Greatest 50th birthday ever!!
Clorissa A. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
The sharks didn’t cooperate on our trip but that was no fault of Tristan and Benny. They are some good dudes and we enjoyed talking with them. They tried hard, just wasn’t in the cards for us that evening. We’ll try it again next time we’re in town.
Josh M. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
3 of us joined Kevin on an 8 hour bay fishing trip and had a fantastic time, Kevin was knowledgeable, helpful and able to get us on some great fish. Will definitely be using him in the future and would recommend him as well!
Dalton F. with Kevin G. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Excellent! Doug is a nice guy and very knowledgeable about the waters and fish. The boat was well equipped and he put us on the fish immediately. One of best fishing trips Linda and I have ever experienced! Thank you Doug. Sincerely, Linda and Ron Yearout
Linda Y. with Doug A. of Corpus Christi, Texas
5 star guide easy. No we didn’t limit out but you won’t find a guide out there that will put in the time and energy that CAPT Mitch did. He got us on fish and I will go with him exclusively when I go with a guide. He’s that good.
Marc A. with Mitch D. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Went out there and hooked onto a monster. About 15 people watched us fight that monster for 35-40 minutes till it popped loose and a bunch of them were all shark fisherman who agreed that it was huge. Never got to finally bring him in, but tristan was knowledge, personable, well equipped with the proper gear, and an overall really good guide to use. I’d definitely use him again👍🏼
Jonny S. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Captain Caleb was excellent! He put us on fish almost immediately and anticipated our needs for casting, baiting hooks, and of course, netting the fish. Our eleven-year-old grandson chose this trip because he had never been fishing in salt water before. It was his favorite part of our visit to Corpus. Captain was patient with us and also gave us a few helpful hints to improve our experience. We enjoyed the experience very much!
Arthur C. with Caleb S. of Corpus Christi, Texas
5 stars. The guy knows his stuff
tim M. with Trey C. of Corpus Christi, Texas
We had such a great time out there! We will be planning another trip soon! Great host!
David M. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas
This guys passion and dedication to doing what he loves is absolutely incredible and 100% genuine. Fantastic trip for my Son and I to be a part of Jason getting this 8’ 7” Tiger Shark notched in his belt this year.
Daniel G. with Jason G. of Corpus Christi, Texas
Awesome, friendly guys who work hard to ensure you have a great day shore fishing while spending time at the beach. Very knowledgeable about shark fishing with a conservationist heart! Incredibly successful experience… would definitely recommend and will be back again!
