Captain Kelly’s Deep Sea Headquarters

Deep Sea Headquarters (40 W Cotter Avenue) has a fleet of three fantastic boats equipped with everything you need, from rods and reels. Staffed with an experienced crew, Captain Kelly promises each boat will include “the comforts of home.” Deep Sea Headquarters has the resources to offer a wide range of experiences, including short trips for beginners and long trips for the experienced. Enjoy a variety of trips, from 5-hour-long offshore fishing trips to 60-hour trips in search of the “Monster Yellowfin Tuna”!

Flounder Gigging Trips: Surrender At Sunrise

Except for November, you can join Captain Dave for a fishing trip year-around. Surrender at Sunrise (519 Bigelow Street) is a family-friendly operation that offers flounder gigging on Dave’s 22’ boat during the beautiful Florida evenings—it’s equipped with underwater lights that illuminate the action. You’ll drift along a shallow, sandy area alongside an oyster reef and, if you’re lucky, appear with your catch on Surrender at Sunrise’s site.

Aransas National Wildlife Refuge – San Antonio Bay

Aransas National Wildlife Refuge was once an island that, over the course of 120,000 years, joined mainland Arsanas. A prominent refuge among the American wildlife conservation movement, the ANWR has helped many species thrive, and has been a haven for the whooping crane. There’s a fishing pier north of the refuge that offers visitors peaceful afternoons filled with beauty. You can also go wade fishing for black trout and black drum in San Antonio Bay from April to October—when the whooping cranes aren’t around. Beware of stingrays, jellyfish, and alligators!
