Captain Ben Tortorello will be leading the way as you scour the Corpus Christi area for your next trophy catch.  Capt. Ben grew up fishing the local waters of the area and has many years of experience running charters on the coastal bend of Texas. He has a true passion for fishing and truly enjoys watching others experience the same passion and excitement that he has experienced. Capt. Ben will do everything he can to make sure your trip with him is as successful as possible. 


Your outdoor fishing voyage with Capt. Ben will set sail out of Corpus Christi and go on to fish the magnificent waters of the coastal bend near Padre Island. The Padre Island National Seashore is home to many exciting fish species and other wildlife you may get to catch sight of. 

Capt. Ben has a stunning 21ft Haynie bay boat that makes inshore fishing in Texas a breeze. She is powered by a 150hp Mercury Optimax engine that can cruise her up to 45 knots. On deck, you will find all the required safety and navigational equipment needed for a safe trip. This fishing vessel can comfortably carry up to 4 passengers and features a live baitwell for keeping all your catches fresh. 


We offer full and half day inshore trips covering the inshore flats of Padre Island. Capt. Ben will make sure you are provided with all the rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures needed to catch many fish. You will need a Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp before the trip. After the trip, we will gladly clean and package your catches for you to take to one of the local restaurants for cooking options. 


There will be no shortage of fish in this popular fishing destination and Capt. Ben will put you right where they are at. There are many species to target including Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Redfish, just to name a few. 


At Padre Island Fishing Charters, we want nothing more than to see you coming back to the dock with many catches and many smiles. Book a trip with us today to see what fishing in Texas is all about!
