You are here

Known to casual and serious anglers alike as the “Fishing Capital of Texas,” Port Aransas offers challenges and a string of rewards for everyone. Virtually every type of angler casting around for a hot spot will find their own paradise here. You can even bring your fresh catch to a local eatery and have them cook it up, just the way you like it, while you sit back and enjoy dining waterside.

Bay and Shallow Water:

Bay fishing is also outstanding in the waterways surrounding Mustang Island, where limits of redfish, flounder, black drum and trout are common place.

Deep Sea:

Launch your boat from one of our many marinas or hire a private charter for the fishing trip of a lifetime. Tackle the deep blue waters on an offshore excursion and reel in kingfish, sailfish, marlin, tuna and more.

Pier and Jetty:

For those that prefer to keep their feet dry, Port Aransas has four public, lighted fishing piers and the popular south jetty for around the clock casting.

Fishing Tournaments: 

Competitive fishing is big business in this little town. ‘Port A’ hosts over 20 fishing tournaments during the summer months ranging from kids to women only and billfish to redfish tournaments.
