Based out of South Padre Island, Texas, we do flats, inshore & nearshore fishing. We fish for black drum, pompano, snook, redfish, snapper, spotted seatrout and more!

Ready to hit the bay? I fish Lower Laguna Madre near South Padre Island. I can customize your fishing trip to your schedule. South Padre Island is a barrier island off the southern coast of Texas. Known for its beaches and calm waters, we fish the shores and flats of this beautiful island.

Big Mother Bay Fishing is led by Captain Kevin Nicholls and I am licensed with the U.S. Coast Guard and a registered tour guide with the State of Texas.

My boat is an 18 ft. Skiff Boat with casting platform, poling platform and livewell. All safety equipment (life vests, life raft, first-aid equipment, fire extinguishers, flares, VHF radio) is certified by the U.S. Coast Guard. We also have 2 coolers on board for your catch!

Each angler 17 years and older must have a fishing license. You’ll also want to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, snacks and drinks.

Fishing in Lower Laguna Madre we can fish with light tackle, go spinning, drifting, jigging, or bottom fishing. I welcome anglers of every experience level – I’m happy to teach you a technique you’re trying to master. Big Mother Bay Fishing is a private charter that can accommodate 4 anglers.

I’ve been fishing Lower Laguna Madre for almost fifteen years, and enjoy spending time on the water. I work hard to make sure you have a great fishing experience.

Let’s go fishing in South Padre Island and have a great time on the water! Book today!
