Port Isabel Fishing Overview

Embark on a fishing expedition in Port Isabel, a historic town with a rich past of pirate legends and hidden treasures. Today, it is a charming fishing village that offers access to some of the most bountiful waters in Texas. The shallow Laguna Madre provides excellent inshore fishing opportunities, while the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico offer a thrilling experience for the more adventurous angler.

In the Laguna Madre, you will find crystal clear waters teeming with a variety of fish species, including Redfish, Flounder, Trout, Tarpon, Snook, and Sheepshead. A half-day trip is perfect for exploring this fishery and spending quality time with family. For those seeking a more exhilarating experience, the Gulf is just a short boat ride away, where you can target Snapper, Grouper, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna on a full-day or extended full-day trip.

As a fishing town, Port Isabel has no shortage of charters available. Simply head to the docks and take your pick. South Padre Island, located across from the Queen Isabella Causeway, offers even more options.

It is important to note that Texas state law requires all individuals aged 17 and over to possess a fishing license, regardless of whether they are fishing on their own or with a charter.

Fishing for speckled trout is most productive in the spring, while fall months are prime for catching bull redfish. You'll also be able to catch flounder, black drum, and mangrove snapper while fishing in Laguna Madre, and from late summer into fall, snook and tarpon can be found patrolling the flats. With so many species inhabiting these sparkling waters, Port Isabel takes inshore fishing to the next level.

Offshore Fishing Port Isabel

With just a short trip offshore you can hook up with mahi-mahi, grouper, snapper, wahoo, tuna, and billfish. Some of the best offshore fishing can be had in the summer months when the mahi-mahi and marlin bite heats up along with several species of snapper. Moving into the fall months, yellowfin and blackfin tuna are in a feeding frenzy while the wahoo bite peaks in the winter months making Port Isabel an excellent offshore fishing destination throughout the year.

    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!

    What an outstanding time that we had with Captain Mike. This was our very first time boat fishing and we had done so at the request of my son for his 17th birthday. Captain Mike was incredibly accommodating, very easy to communicate with and more importantly knowledgeable when it comes to fishing. He was incredibly patient, taught each person in our group of four how to properly cast and really made sure that we had a good time (and also made sure we caught our limit, I have no doubt he would have stayed out there all day to make it happen.) I'm new at this but I am sure this is the type of experience you hope for with this sort of activity. Book this gut y'all. I PROMISE you that you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Captain Mike for a memorable experience!!!!!

    Joshua C. with Mike K. of South Padre Island, Texas

    Matt S. with Cliff F. of Port Isabel, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    My nephew and I went out with Captain Mike on Jan 27th, 2024. Captain Mike was very approachable and personable with his introduction. He set up some rigs before we left the pier which only took a few minutes. His boat is a very comfortable and nicely setup. When we arrived at the fishing location Captain Mike was very informative on what to do and how to do it. He is very patient and informative. We set up a 5-hour trip but had our limits of Red Drum and Speckled Trout in only 3 hours of fishing time. He knew exactly where to go and what to do. When we arrived back at the pier there was a very kind gentleman waiting to clean our fish for us. He will clean them any you want them. I give Captain Mike a solid 5-star review and I will return to fish with him again in the future. THANK YOU, CAPTAIN MIKE, for a fantastic time.

    David D. with Mike K. of South Padre Island, Texas

    Steven A. with Alfonso S. of Rio Hondo, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    During our trip, Captain Mike consistently put us on fish in multiple situations despite what I would consider fairly difficult weather conditions. He did a great job with my 12-year old son, who happily landed his first ever slot red, along with several other nice trout and redfish. We would definitely love to fish with Captain Mike again!
