About Your Trip

Captain Jonathan is an excellent guide to the calm waters off South padre Island. He's been fishing here for decades, and knows how to get you on great fish, whether you're going for a trophy Red or just looking to have some fun with your family and friends.

The Laguna Madre is a unique environment that is ideal for Redfish, Spotted Trout, Flounder, and Drum. On this trip, you're free to keep your keepers or
return them to the water.

You'll get out there aboard Captain Jonathan's fast, sleek 25' torrent cat 5 bay boat, which can comfortable seat up to 6 guests. She's driven by a 200-HP Suzuki engine, I put so you'll be out on the prime fishing spots quickly. The boat also sports a live well for bait, and standard electronics to help you hook 'em!

Captain Jonathan will supply all the rods, reels, bait and tackle. Just bring your Texas fishing licenses, sunscreen, and proper clothing and you'll be all set!

Jonathan is an outstanding guide. He went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed the trip and patiently explained things multiple times when the kids didn't understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to spend time fishing in the Port Isabel and South Padre area.

Jonathan sold his boat and cancelled our trip the afternoon before we were supposed to go, but he found a replacement, Capt. AJ, who did a great job. I would fish with Capt. AJ again.

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!
