About Your Trip

Captain Alfonso specializes in showing what the waters of South Padre Island are all about. Spend a day on the water catching fish and have fun doing it. It’s as simple as that!

Captain Alfonso will show you the best techniques to reel in Speckled Trout, Redfish, Snook and Black Drum on light tackle as you explore the Lower Laguna Madre.

For these trips, Captain Alfonso uses a 24’ Shallow Master flats boat that can
fish up to 6 anglers. This boat has an extremely shallow draft and can stalk up into super skinny water where the fish like to hang out! He welcomes children, beginners, pros, group outings, and everyone in between! Captain Alfonso will provide all rods, reels, and tackle.

With Captain Alfonso, you’ll certainly have a great time!

Captain Alfonso is based out of Rio Hondo so can also accommodate pickups anywhere from Rio Hondo to SPI.

When the standard fishing charter seems dull, go gig for flounder instead! To say my kids and I had a blast would be an understatement! Captain Alfonso was a great guide and a heck of a DJ! It didn't take long for him to teach the kids and I

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
