Bay fishing guides specialize in shallow water drifting and sight casting for reds on the flats of the Laguna Madre and South Bay. They are also good at finding and catching trout, flounder, snook and some big offshore fish that come into the channels and jetties.
Offshore fishing offers several species accessible within a few miles, including mahi mahi, grouper, spanish mackerel, tuna, kingfish, amberjack, cobia, dolphin, shark, barracuda, tarpon, and snapper.
Deep sea fishing for big billfish like marlin, sailfish and swordfish you have to go to the clear blue waters of the gulf stream. The blue water is always shifting and can be as far as sixty miles out or more. These charter boats are equipped with fighting chairs and deckhands to help.
Remember to bring a big ice chest to take your fish home.
