Port Aransas Fishing

Helllloooooo everyone!! I’m sorry I’ve been on a small hiatus. I’ve been enjoying my “vacation” here in Port Aransas. Let’s be real! I “vacation” all year long!

Living in Port Aransas I get asked quite often if I enjoy fishing and the answer is “no,” and that answer tends to surprise people. I live on the Coast. The Ocean is basically my backyard, shouldn’t I like fishing? But the truth is I’m far from your fisherman… or fisherwoman. I enjoy taking the cooler out and keeping my husband company from time to time, and eating any delicious aquatic animals he catches for dinner, but I don’t have the patience for fishing.

Although I may not be the person to ask any fishing advice from I do know there are plenty of highly capable and knowledgeable people around the area that you can reach out to and are always happy to help.

Do some research

If I’m going anywhere new or trying out a new activity I try to do as much research as possible. If you happen to find yourself in my neck of the woods…. Or should I say water? I’d start by looking up Corpusfishingclub.com. Their website if full of great information for both experienced anglers and beginning fisherman. Find information about licensing and policy as well as how to earn rewards and money through contesting and fishing in the area. Can’t find an answer? That’s okay! They also respond quickly to questions and can provide you with an interactive fishing map to with active fishing spots throughout the Corpus Christi and Port Aransas area.

Find a guide

If you would like a little more guidance before heading out on a fishing trip find a guide.  Deep Sea Headquarters is a great place to find a guide to help you on trip. This website does a great job of highlighting the guides and their specialties depending on what you may be looking to catch or accomplish during your time with us here in Port Aransas.

Monitor the elements

Before booking your trip make sure to monitor the weather and the what is biting in the area. We want you to have a great experience with us and we don’t want you going home empty handed. The Texas Parks and Wildlife website tpwd.texas.gov provides a great weekly fishing report to also help on your trip here. Currently here in Port Aransas the trout, redfish and sheepshead are fair to good at the jetty on shrimp and croakers. Redfish are fair around Pelican Island on shrimp. Offshore is good for red snapper and kingfish in state waters.

Book your trip

After doing your own research, speaking with a guide you’re ready to set a date to come visit Port Aransas and fish at the all of the hot spots. We have over 700 properties for you to choose from some close to the bay and others nestled inland. Start planning and book your trip soon!
