Texas Coastal Bend tour guide Early Summer 2015 29 Anglers from throughout the United States descend upon Port Aransas in most every month of the year to enjoy consistently productive game fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and in the bays and inlets on the back side of Mustang Island. Port A is home to dozens of private fishing guides as well as large party boats which together comprise the largest sportfishing fleet on the Texas Gulf Coast. Public fishing centers are located along the Port A Marina including Fishermans Wharf Woodys Sport Center Dolphin Docks and Deep Sea Headquarters and all provide gear and bait as part of their fee which can range from 70 or so for a half-day party boat trip to over 2000 for a private charter with a professional guide on a first class boat. But you certainly dont need to be on a boat to catch fish in the summer in Port A and on Mustang Island. The Port Aransas jetties or course provide ample access to the ship channel through which big fish run. Additionally the boat channel along the back side of Mustang Island in Corpus Christi Bay is popular for wade and shore fishing and the flats are where Flounder gigging can reap great rewards landing this tasty fish that is harder to catch on rod and reel. Because most accommodations on Mustang Island are condos and beach houses with full kitchens a family fish fry after your angling adventure is a perfect plan and just about all of the fine restaurants in town will happily prepare and cook your catch Woodys 361 749-5252 Fishermans Wharf 749-5448 Dolphin Docks 749-4188 Deep Sea HQ 749-5597 The Best Saltwater Fishing on the Texas Coast is in Port A The town center north of Avenue G is a true ocean- front village bustling with laughter and fun activities from great dining to shopping an art center and galleries and even hands-on experiences like pottery or model making and painting.
