Port Aransas is Paradise for Anglers!
Fishing in the waters off of Mustang Island is amazing. Here's what our Chamber of Commerce has to say about it:
Known to casual and serious anglers alike as the "Fishing Capital of Texas," Port Aransas offers up challenges and a string of rewards for everyone.
Virtually every type of angler casting around for a hot spot will find their own paradise in Port Aransas. 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.
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. Bay fishing is also outstanding in the waterways surrounding Mustang Island, where limits of redfish, flounder, black drum and trout are common place.
For instant gratification, bring your fresh catch to a local eatery and have them cook it up, just the way you like it. Sit back and enjoy your spoils while dining waterside.
Port A hosts over 20 fishing tournaments during the summer months, including the oldest fishing tournament on the Gulf Coast, the Deep Sea Roundup.
