Fishing Port Mansfield

Port Mansfield is the only easy jumping-off point between the legendary Baffin Bay and South Padre Island. The waters surrounding Port Mansfield offer some incredible action in a less crowded area which means the fish are not being pressured. Fishing areas with low-pressure fish create better opportunities for anglers to be successful with fish being less finicky. Port Mansfield is the perfect example of where low-pressure fishing and pristine waters meet making an ideal inshore fishery.

Port Mansfield Inshore Fishing

The Lower Laguna Madre and the shallow grasses of the Intracoastal are a hotbed for inshore action that will provide tons of opportunities for redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and black drum. The current state record speckled trout was caught in the nearby Baffin Bay which is proof that giant fish frequent the area.

Starting in the Spring, the speckled trout bite is in full swing with flounder coming on strong in the warmer summer water. Heading into Fall, redfish get red hot while migrating for their annual spawn, and as the water cools off in the winter, sheepshead group up around structures and start biting. Whether you want to wade or drift, you'll see plenty of action in the pristine waters surrounding Port Mansfield.

Port Mansfield Offshore Fishing

Port Mansfield is one of the closest cities in Texas to deep water, meaning the distance and time, and time you need to spend getting to quality offshore action is much shorter than it might be further to the north. This means that if you want to take an overnight trip to the floaters you'll have hours more fishing time and much less running time. Head out and troll to target species including wahoo, cobia, kingfish, blackfin tuna, yellowfin tuna, marlin, and sailfish. If you would rather drop bait deep you can catch various grouper and snapper species near structures on the ocean floor.
