JULY/AUGUST 2020 FEATURED ARTICLE

OFFSHORE ADVENTURES & SOUTH BAY MARINA

Spring is here and gone… Summer is upon us now and all are ready to come out and get some fresh air and sunshine after all this Virus Stuff. Nothing like a relaxing day out on the water to take your mind off things!  The fish are waiting for you.  Our weather as of lately has been awesome and with the beautiful beaches open – who can ask for more!

We are open too and selling bait and booking fishing trips!  We have employed many safety measures to keep us both safe. Thank you for your cooperation and everyone deserves a great time on the Texas Gulf Coast!  For those of you who want to take a charter boat out deep sea fishing, just call us to book your trip!  All captains are USCG & Texas Parks and Wildlife Certified.

 

For those who would rather “BE THEIR OWN CAPTAIN”, call to reserve early and rent one of our 16′ Carolina Skiffs.  Be sure to bring your bait bucket(s), new line on your reels, snacks and your favorite drinks and of course sun screen and a cap are helpful.  Life vests for the younger passengers fit better, so bring them along if you have them.   Be sure to stay hydrated as the temps are warming up now!  We have several boats for charter fishing and rentals – so visit our website (www.portaransasadventures.com) to learn more!

 

OFFSHORE FISHING TRIPS have been coming in with Kingfish, Jack Crevelle, Blacktip Shark, Spinner Sharks, and a few Ling.  The longer trips have added Wahoo and Amberjack to the catch!   Offshore fishing trips are so much fun (but if you’re prone to seasickness, take some Dramamine prior to boarding and you’ll be fine!

RED SNAPPER season starts June 1st so get ready for some yummy Red Snapper.  Red Snapper season should be phenomenal this year. Beautiful big Red Snapper are fun to catch and delicious to eat too!  I will be posting pictures of all the trips offshore as well as bay fishing trips on our Facebook page for South Bay Marina.  (If you don’t Facebook but would like to see the fish pictures you can go into the website and click on Facebook will take you there without signing in.)

 

BAY FISHING TRIPS have been bringing in limits of Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum and a few Flounder using Live Shrimp under a popping cork, free-lined Croaker and Menhaden (Shad) (cutbait) is producing the best results.

Kayak Fishing Enthusiasts have been doing well in the Lighthouse Lakes and Brown and Root Flats for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum and Flounder too!!

The fish are biting and the weather is great –  it’s time to come down and go fishing. We can see that since the waters have had a break from us (because we were all home bound “Wishin’ we was Fishin’ for weeks on end – OR –  we were working hard to keep America going), that the water and surrounding areas have many more animals and fish.  Let’s do our part and keep the beaches and waterways clean please – put your trash in a trash container, keep plastics out of the water and help Texas maintain a clean and healthy environment for all critters… including us.

Time to plan that fishing trip… be it offshore or in the bay, wading, renting a skiff, or kayaking!  Give us a call at 361-758-6900 and let us help you plan your fishing adventure.  We have great recommendations for places to stay too!
