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!

    Had a great time and caught lots of fish. Captain Henry took the time to make sure we were comfortable with the equipment and his mate couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly.

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Alana was awesome! Very professional, had the boat clean and gear ready to go as soon as we got to the dock we were off. Boat was good size had plenty of room for everyone to walk around. Even took us close to the launch site to see the Space X Starship. She was constantly on the phone with other guides trying to find the best bite possible. We caught Speckled Trout, large Catfish and saw a bunch of large red drums but even hitting them in the head with the bait they wouldn't bite... Had a weather change and rockets going off in the area so may have had something to do with it. But we were the only boat that day really catching anything. I would highly recommend Captain Alana. Will decently book her for future visits to go Tarpon Fishing!!!

    Bret S. with Alana S. of Port Isabel, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Corey was absolutely amazing! We had fun caught several red fish, he is the best with kids big and small. We will back in the near future to fish with Captain Corey again.
