Anglers Choice Guide Service

Capt. Gary Farmer Port Isabel, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Anglers Choice Guide Service offers privately guided saltwater bay fishing charters in the Port Isablel, South Padre Island, and surrounding South Texas areas.   It is owned and operated by Captain Gary Farmer who has spent his life fishing the beautiful waters around South Padre Island and Port Isabel, Texas.

Captain Gary is USCG licensed and specializes in inshore charters targeting Trout, Snook, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, and other local species.  Let Captain Gary show you how to catch fish on the Lower Laguna Madre. Fishing these waters for many years, he has the knowledge and experience to put you on the fish.

Join Captain Gary aboard his 24ft Carolina Skiff, which has plenty of room for up to six anglers to ride in comfort.  At Anglers Choice Guide Service all anglers are welcome regardless of age or experience.  If you’re looking to land your first monster trout, or just want to watch your kids light up as they catch their first fish, Captain Gary strives to make your day on the water an unforgettable experience.

Captain Gary uses both artificial lures and live bait.  The choice of bait depends on what kind of fishing you would like to do and what is biting at that time.   You can decide between the following fishing techniques:  Bottom Fishing, Drift Fishing, Light Tackle and Spinning.  During your trip you could be targeting species such as Flounder, Jacks, Snapper, Trout, Snook, Redfish, and Black Drum.

At Anglers Choice Guide Service, you can enjoy a 3hr Sunset Trip, a 5hr Half Day morning or afternoon trip, or an 8hr Full Day trip.  They have everything you need for a successful day on the water – all bait, lures, rods, and reels.  You are welcome to bring your favorite gear if you would like.  They also provide coolers and ice for snacks and drinks. While they do take care of almost everything, there are still some things that you will need to bring:  a valid fishing license, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, snacks, water, soft drinks, (beer is ok).

Captain Gary and Anglers Choice Guide Service are ready to take you on the fishing adventure of a lifetime in the beautiful waters of South Padre Island!
