We had a great time! He put us on trout first thing. We ran out of bait, but not his fault. He worked hard to put us on red fish, but we just didn’t find them. My wife was thrilled at the whole experience and loved catching fish, even hard heads!

Walter was amazing. I had four boys and me on the trip. The two younger boys (10) were pretty high maintenance and he was so patient and kind to them. The two older boys were less hands-on. We had a great conversation, laughed a lot. He went above and beyond for us. We even got to meet his wife who was super responsive and helpful. When we return, we will definitely take another trip. A must do!

I booked this trip for my dad & brothers as a fathers day gift. There were some issues with guide availability for the weekend that we wanted to come but the girl who is in charge of that was super helpful in finding a trip that would work for us. By chance of luck, they got paired with Ron & in their words it was the best fishing trip any of them have ever been on. Ron was energetic, friendly, supportive & fun. He was not going to let them leave without catching the maximum amount of fish allowed. My dad & brothers are not the type to do reviews & they are not easily won over but they specifically made it a point to be sure i made a review to let everyone know how amazing Ron was. We will be sure to book with Ron for every fishing trip from here on out. Thank you Ron!!

Captain Walter knew the spot, got us there early and we pulled in our limit. My kids caught their first fish ever and my wife caught two seagulls...thats a crazy story but Captain Walter knew exactly what to do. My favorite part was we were pulling trout up every time our hook hit the water and other guides started to notice and tried getting to where we were.

Inshore South Padre Island Fishing Charters

The inshore fishing opportunities in South Padre are excellent and you can enjoy chasing redfish, speckled trout, flounder, black drum and snook up and down the beautiful Laguna Madre. The best time of year for landing big speckled trout is in the spring followed by bull reds in the summer to early fall, but you can have a blast catching both fish any time of year.

Shark fishing is becoming more popular and South Padre is a great place to hook into one of these toothy predators. Bonnethead and blacktip sharks are great for any group that wants to catch sharks, but if you want a serious thrill head out a little further for bull and hammerhead sharks.

For advanced anglers looking for a challenge, Texas tarpon and snook patrol the vast and pristine Laguna Madre from Port Isabel down south, up to Port Mansfield and Arroyo City, further north to the Land Cut, and beyond. This truly is a bucket list fishery ready to host your trip of a lifetime. Keep your eyes peeled fishing SPI because sea turtles, stingrays, and osprey love stopping by on fishing trips out of South Padre Island.
