Went fishing with Rob's Fishing Charters on Mayo 12, 2022
We came to Corpus Christi because my dad did his flight training at the NAS, but the quality of fishing completely blew us away. We did a full day charter and then fished on our own for two more days, and we had an absolute blast. Lots of different areas to fish and very good accessibility to public waters.

We have used Captain OBT several times. He is great for tournaments or just a great day out on the water. My girlfriends and I look forward to our trips with him every year. He is patient, provides all the equipment we need, knows just where to go, and makes sure we always come back with fish! Looking forward to our 2022 trips!

Fishing from our condo, lets say, loosing bait and catching palm size fish is not what we expected but got. Fishing from piers and jetties has been just as productive. If it wouldn't of been for booking Captain Grant's Backlash Charter's, the fishing part of our trip would of been very disappointing. If you can't bring your own boat, look for Backlash Charter's. Grant did a wonderful job!!!!!!!

If you want to catch fish theres alot of little bait shop piers to fish on. The surf is also great. I suggest if you go on a charter, find out how it works first before you pay. Alot of these guys know their stuff when ot comes to targeted fish. As long as you know the rules up front you should leave happy.

Be sure the 1st Mate is on Boat for the longer Trips and the Catch is Cleaned and Filleted as Advertised while Fishing. Cleaning Fish after 8-Hour Trip can be time consuming and unnecessary. Not expected Additional Expense

Went fishing with Laguna Lure Fishing: No Fish No Pay on Febrero 11, 2019
Lure and bait fishing in the shallows seems to be the ticket for speckled trout, drum, and flounder. The people are wonderfully friendly and helpful. We hired Laguna Lure Fishing with Captain John and couldn't be happier!

Property hydrate the day before so you start off on the right foot, then drink water throughout the day. The heat and salty breeze will dehydrate you very quickly.

The fish were not biting on our morning out, but I believe it was related to a storm that was coming in. I would still recommend fishing in the bay.

Stay in the channels and bay for your first trip. Action out in the Gulf is hit or miss and there can be long waits between.

Be prepared if the winds are high. Fishing is rough. We stayed for a week and only one day was decent, can't control the weather obviously.

It is hot. Hiring a guide for a morning trip is the way to go. They supply the bait and usually get you on some fish.

Bait availability close to Memorial Day is limited. Everything depends on the quality of the guide and weather conditions. This was not my first time to fish in Corpus.

do not expect to catch crabs in March. Also maps of the local area would be very helpful, they do sell a hook and line map but it is somewhat costly.

If you can, get a guide. If you can't, talk to others that are on piers, working the shores, talk to the guys at the bait shops. They're a friendly bunch down there.
