Arnold will provide your group with fishing rods, lures, and local knowledge!

Powered by a 115hp engine, Capt. Arnold will have your lines in the water shortly after leaving the dock. The time of year you’re planning your trip with South Texas Elite Outfitters will determine what you’re fishing for, you’ll be targeting the species that are biting most frequently on the days leading up to your trip. Redfish and Speckled Trout are the two most sought after species, with Flounder and Sheepshead being close seconds!

If the fish you bring in the boat is in season and legal size, it’s heading back to the dock with you! Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, and Sheepshead make for incredible table fare. Be sure to bring personal cooler or something else to bring your fish home in! If your catch is out of season or not quite legal size, Capt. Arnold will help you safely release it.
