Deep Sea Fishing In Port Aransas

Some of the best deep sea fishing can be found in south Texas. Situated on the northern tip of Mustang Island, lies beautiful Port Aransas. Referred to as the “best kept secret on the Gulf Coast“, Port Aransas offers a wide variety of fresh and salt water fishing options. Only thirty minutes away from the bright lights of Corpus Christi, Port Aransas is a fisherman’s paradise. There are many great charters, but my personal favorite is Dolphin Dock.

Port Aransas Deep Sea Fishing

Located along the Gulf Coast, Port Aransas is a true fisherman’s paradise. There are plenty of places to fish from around the island, but for a true taste of deep sea fishing I recommend joining one of the chartered fishing excursions. Depending on the season, you can fish for everything from trout and redfish to tuna and shark. Other common catches also include my favorites tuna and flounder. Wrestle a large marlin into the boat, or lay back and watch the sun setting as you make your way back to the landing. Port Aransas is truly a beautiful spot along the gulf coast.

More than Deep Sea Fishing

Along with relaxing deep sea fishing trips, Port Aransas is home to some spectacular national and local fishing tournaments. Whether you are a young angler just starting out, or an experienced fisherman trying to beat a record, these tournaments are fun for the whole family. One of my favorite activities on the coast is the annual return of the dolphins. Book a charter and enjoy a day on the water. Watch the dolphins as they playfully swim along, while your captain shows you the best places for deep sea fishing. Whether you choose to venture further out into the gulf or stay closer to the island, it is sure to be a day you will never forget. The dolphins are here almost year round, but there best time to see them is in the cooler winter months.

Port Aransas is also home to some of the most beautiful white, sandy beaches on the Texas Gulf Coast. Perfect for sunbathing and even fishing. Try hunting for crabs along the shoreline, or try nighttime fishing from the lighted piers. I always recommend taking the ferry across to Corpus Christi. Not only will tourists get to see some of the beautiful Texas coastline, but also visit many of the area attractions. Corpus Christi is home to several fine restaurants and shops, not to mention a thriving bar scene. Other attractions not to miss are the Lexington Air Craft Carrier Museum and the Texas State Aquarium.

Port Aransas is More than Deep Sea Fishing

Port Aransas is home to some of the best deep sea fishing on the gulf coast, but that is not all this beautiful area has to offer. Sunbathe on some of the best beaches in Texas, and see a wide assortment of wildlife and birds. Hunt for crabs and wrestle marlins, all in one day. Port Aransas truly has something special to offer everyone. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy this video!

It’s not a stretch to say that lakes will be cold when the 2014 fishing season opens on April 1. And, given the volume of frigid runoff this spring, federal hydrologists predict Lake Michigan-Huron waters are likely to be colder than last year throughout the summer fishing season.

What Lake Michigan anglers can expect remains a question that will soon be answered – particularly when it comes to Chinook salmon. Anglers this year can once again catch and keep five salmon daily. Last summer was tops for 20 pound to 30 pound fish, very big salmon, but fewer were caught overall.

State fisheries officials will be watching the 2014 salmon catch closely. Concern remains about the forage base. The alewife population is still at low ebb, and they are the preferred food…
