About Your Trip

Looking for an enjoyable laid back adventure whacking reds, trout, snook and more? There's no better choice than Captain Russell down in South Padre Island! Whether you're looking to dial it in and catch a monster on artificials or just kick back and catch some fish for the love of the sport, these trips are a blast for both beginners and experienced anglers, and are a great way to enjoy the South Texas coast and all the great fishing it offers.

On this trip, you'll use light tackle gear and artificial lures exclusively. This trip is offered at a discounted rate since Captain Russell doesn't need to buy live bait. If you're looking to fish with live bait check out his other listings below for more options! to chase These classic sportfish like Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, and Snook are all fun fighters and are a blast to hook into with top waters, jig heads, or swim baits alike!

You'll step off the dock and onto Captain Russell's 24' Carolina Skiff. She's an ideal boat for motoring around the bay, and has a shallow draft to get you into the inshore waters and flats. Captain Russell will supply everything you need for an awesome trip, including rods, reels, and tackle! All you need to bring along are any food or drinks you'd like to enjoy on board, your sunscreen, and your Texas Fishing License. Captain Russel will take care of the rest to ensure you have an epic day out on the water!

I have fished all over the world and been a guide myself for many years and I would highly recommend the fishing experience Captain Russell provides. If you are wanting to take your family out for a great afternoon of fishing Captain Russell is who you need to book with hands down. He had us on fish early and often despite the windy conditions. My youngest, who is 7, caught his personal best on this

We had a great time with Captain Russell. We caught our limit of Redfish and several other species. My wife caught a “quadruple crown” with a Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Drum. We were even treated to a private bar after our trip where we learned a lot of local history. Captain Russell knows where the fish are. Proven not only by us catching them but every time we’d leave a spot other Captains would

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!
