Captain Hector Lopez will be at the helm on your South Texas fishing adventure. Captain Hector has been fishing these waters since the age of 8. Nobody knows Laguna Madre fishing like he does! He has fallen in love with the sport of fishing, and he started running South Padre Island fishing charters so he could show other anglers just how exciting it can be. Nothing makes Capt. Hector happier than being able to take guests out on the water so they can create lifelong memories from their fishing experience. He likes meeting new people and is always ready to answer all of your questions. 

 

Our fishing charters set sail out of South Padre Island, Texas. Captain Hector will strive to put you where the bite is hot. He may direct you to the nearby fishing grounds of Port Isabel, Laguna Vista, South Bay, Laguna Heights, Laguna Vista Cove, Boca Chica State Park, and many other excellent locations around the Lower Laguna Madre bay system. 

 

Fishing will be done off of Captain Hector’s stunning 26ft Epic Kat bay boat. There are few other boats that can do South Padre Island fishing charters like this one! Her 300hp Suzuki engine will allow us to get to all the fishing hotspots in a hurry! You’ll find features such as GPS, outriggers, power poles, a live baitwell, all the required safety gear, and all the latest fish finding technologies. You can connect your phone to the Bluetooth Sound Bar on deck and jam out to your favorite music while we fish. This vessel is spacious enough for you and 5 of your friends to enjoy Laguna Madre fishing! 

 

We offer full and half day fishing trips covering the waters of South Texas. You are provided with Shimano reels, light tackle, and H20 express medium light rods on each of your Laguna Madre fishing trips with us. Everyone over 16 on board will need to buy a fishing license before the day of the trip. You can get more information on how to obtain one by Clicking Here. From May to August you’ll need to buy croaker as live bait. This is an additional charge of $15 a dozen. The rest of the year live bait can be caught and is included in the price of the trip.

 

Fishing the inshore waters of South Texas is very rewarding and relaxing. Some of the species you can expect to see on our South Padre Island fishing charters include Black Drum, Redfish, Snook, Flounder, and Spotted Seatrout.
