Fishing On Padre Island
North Padre Island and the surrounding waters offer some of the best
saltwater fishing there is. Whether it's wade fishing the flats, surf fishing
from the beach or heading offshore into the Gulf of Mexico, Padre Island Texas
offers it all.
The flats of the Laguna Madre have miles of
shallow, grassy flats teaming with Redfish, Speckled Trout and other
species. The flats are accessible by boat, kayak and vehicle. Wade
fishing offers one of the past fishing experiences on North Padre.
The Packery Channel Jetties and Mustang
Island State Park both have jetties that allow fishermen to
walking access to fish the Gulf of Mexico.

Another alternative is Bob Hall Pier at
Padre Balli Park or Horace Caldwell Pier in Port Aransas at IB
Magee Park. Sharks, tarpon, Spanish mackerel, redfish and
other species are often caught from these waters.

beaches of along Mustang and North Padre Island provide some of

unique adventure that will be a memory no matter what the
