South Padre Island and Port Isabel Fishing Guides and Deep Sea Charters

Here are some of the best South Padre Island Fishing Guides and Fishing Charters for you to consider on your next fishing trip. South Padre Island and Port Isabel are a fishing mecca offering you several choices to catch a trophy or a good dinner. You can drop your line in the surf, off any of the fishing piers, from the jetty, or hire a guide and go fishing in Laguna Madre Bay, or jump aboard a charter boat for bay fishing or deep sea fishing. You'll have lots of choices for private guides, tourist fishing boats, or beautiful deep sea fishing boats.

Laguna Madre Bay is loaded with Red Fish, Speckled Trout, Snook, and Flounder. Fishing in the surf, there is no telling what you might catch - you should get ready for anything and it's fun all year round. All you need to surf fish is some medium-weight tackle and some shrimp, squid, or mullet for bait. The South Padre Island Beach along the Gulf of Mexico is 34 miles long so you should be able to find a stretch all to yourself. And you can drive your car on the beach, pick a spot, cast your line, and sit back in your beach chair and reel in a big Pompano, Whiting, Redfish , Flounder, or Jack Crevalle.

Guides will take you fishing in the Bay or take a charter offshore for deep sea half and full day trips with an opportunity to catch everything from Snapper to Marlin in the Gulf of Mexico. If you want to fish the piers, there are two long fishing piers that are lit all night, twenty four hours a day. Or try fishing off the jetty at the southern end of South Padre Island. No excuses, if you forgot your pole, you can rent one for a small charge.
