Head out with Captain Ben for an epic offshore experience off the coast of South Padre Island and Port Isabel! His boat is Federally permitted to travel outside of State Waters (>9 miles out) to explore the deeper water and give you good shots at the bigger species!...Read More
Undoubtedly one of Captain Ben our most popular trips from July-Nov. This trip allows you to fish around deep-water shrimp boats for the fish that follow them. Captain Ben often finds blackfin tuna, dorado, and ling. This also puts you in great water with a chance to catch wahoo, sailfish, or dorado. Being out in deeper water allows you to bottom fish for amberjack and several types of grouper as well
A true cruiser at its heart, the Deep Drop is a gorgeous and powerful 48′ Pacemaker Sportfish yacht. She has a 14ft 9inch beam and a 7ft 9inch depth and is quite sturdy and robust. As a fisher, you can enjoy the cool AC on the deep drop while having a cup of joe on the sofa in the salon, or go for a more breathtaking view on the spacious deck and let the ocean breeze flow through your body. Dual Detroit diesel engines power the Deep Drop for smooth, reliable, and comfortable transportation to and from our deep-sea fishing destinations. She has two cabins and two well-structured bathrooms.
Everything is provided by Captain Ben and his Crew From Rods and Tackle, to expert guidance and tips. All the deckhands and responsible crew members tirelessly work around the clock to ensure that you as guests are accompanied by professionalism and are comfortable on the boat while catching your favorite fish. All deckhands will help you with rigging your lines, baiting your hook, teaching those with less experience proper fishing techniques, offering those who may get sick small comforts, cleaning your fish, and so much more. Your gratuity is how they get paid, so please show them, love, if you are happy or satisfied with the service they provided you!
Captain Benjamin loves to help his customers create lifelong memories. As he states, “it is more fun to watch someone catch a fish of a lifetime than it is to catch one myself.”...Read More

Had the pleasure of Fishing with Captain Ben, Tony, and Frank in August. After carefully reviewing the charters available on the island I chose Captain Ben and his crew. These guys were properly outfitted, and worked extremely hard to keep us on fish. I would honestly say these guys were ...Read More probably the hardest working crew I’ve chartered with. Tony did a fantastic job keeping everyone fishing. We had a blast with this crew and would definitely recommend them for any age or experience level. We’re actually taking a trip to the island in the next couple weeks just to fish with these guys again.
