trip description for Rod-bending Action in SPI in South Padre Island

If you've been looking to do some classic Texas fishing and beat the summer heat in Port Isabel, Texas, look no further than this trip with Captain Michael! He's a pro when it comes to fishing the Laguna Madre, and he knows how to put you on the big ones! Whether you're an experienced angler, a greenhorn looking to learn more, or a vacationer looking to spice up your summer travels, you'll have a blast out there. When you're fishing with Captain Michael aboard his 20' Shallow Stalker skiff, you'll be aiming for the "Texas Triple" or the "Texas Slam"—both names for when you catch a Flounder, a Redfish, and a Speckled Trout in one day! You can also expect to hook Black Drum and Sheepshead, both of which share habitat with Redfish. Generally, you'll be fishing shrimp on popping corks, which really attract big surface bites. Be ready, because you never know which bite is going to be your personal record! Captain Michael's shallow-draft skiff is ideal for fishing in these clear waters. She's powered by a brand-new 150-HP Suzuki, so you'll have no problem getting out to where the fish are. Michael provides everything you need for a great trip, so just bring some sunscreen, a cooler with some snacks and drinks, and your Texas saltwater fishing license and you'll be good to go!

Head out to Freeport, Texas if you’re in for a true fishing adventure and pay a visit to Captain Rodney. Captain Rodney will show you various reefs and wrecks, all brimming with quality fish and surrounded by beautiful nature. Fishing in this nearshore zone with Captain Rodney is a great trip for anyone who hasn’t been offshore fishing and wants to wet their feet, but also great for the experienced fisherman who doesn't want to be pounded by the surf that hauling 50 miles out demands! Captain Rodney's crew will help you chase Trophy Bull Red (Red Drum), Shark, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper (seasonally), Catfish, and more, depending on the time of year. You might even get a surprise and catch a Ling or a Mahi Mahi. For these 5-hour trips, Captain Rodney uses his 27’ Center Console which provides a truly great fishing experience! These trips are great for families - Captain Rodney loves teaching little ones about the various species that call the Gulf of Mexico home. Make sure to bring a valid Texas fishing license as well as snacks and drinks of your choice (no glass). Captain Rodney will provide the rest - rods, reels, tackle, and an icebox for your day’s catch. Enjoy your day on the water with Captain Rodney! Read More

    I have fished all over the world and been a guide myself for many years and I would highly recommend the fishing experience Captain Russell provides. If you are wanting to take your family out for a great afternoon of fishing Captain Russell is who you need to book with hands down. He had us on fish early and often despite the windy conditions. My youngest, who is 7, caught his personal best on this trip. We will definitely be back to fish with Captain Russell again!

    Christopher T. with Russell R. of Port Isabel, Texas
