South Padre Island fishing offers experiences for every skill level. Never held a fishing pole before? No problem! You too can experience the thrill of reeling in “the Big One,” and don’t worry if you don’t catch anything, you can always tell the story about “the one that got away!”

South Padre Island offers many options for families to experience the fun of fishing during their stay, and you don’t even need to bring any equipment! Plenty of fishing captains provide 3-4 hour bay fishing charters that are perfect for families looking to get in some quality bonding time. There are similar charters available in Port Isabel just across the Queen Isabella Memorial Causeway as well.

Island Insider Tip: For the more experienced (or more adventurous!), full-day excursions are available for deep-sea fishing.
