Crystal Flats Guide Service

Capt. Clifford Fleming Port Isabel, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Book your Port Isabel fishing excursion with Crystal Flats Guide Service for a fantastic and unforgettable fishing trip for your family! Owned and operated by Captain Clifford Fleming, you won’t find a better charter in the area!

To ensure a personalized fishing charter, Captain Fleming spends time getting to know you. He asks about your fishing experience and what you have in mind as far as fishing South Padre Island. He’ll ask about your abilities and expectations in order to design a custom fishing charter just for you and your group. Whether your group consists of professional anglers or children on their first fishing trip, you can count on Crystal Flats Guide Service for an unforgettable adventure.

We do shallow water private boat bay fishing for Speckled trout, red fish, and other species using spinning gear.

The boat is a 24ft skiff with Yamaha 200HP Sho VMAX outboard. With top-quality GPS and Fishfinder technology and large livewell, the vessel has everything we need for a fun, safe, and successful day of fishing. South Padre Island offers a variety of prime fishing spots, and Captain Fleming has experience fishing all of them! We fish the crystal clear “flats”, Lower Laguna Madre Bay, Ports Brownsville, Port Mansfield, or wherever the fish are biting!

We can go fly fishing, shallow water fishing, or deep sea fishing. Just let Captain Fleming know what you’re looking for and he is sure to customize the perfect trip. We’ll be fishing either 5 or 8 hours, depending on your package of choice. Each trip is a private charter with just your group aboard, so Captain Fleming is able to give his undivided attention to your needs.

Trips are available for four anglers/passengers. Included in the trip is all gear and tackle. Fish cleaning is available at the dock for an additional cost. Whatever trip you choose, Captain Fleming is determined to work for a successful charter for your 100% customer satisfaction.

Your South Texas fishing charter is just a click away! Reserve your spot today with Crystal Flats Guide Service today and get ready for the fishing adventure of a lifetime!
