I am going to be in south Padre Island for Spring Break from March 24-29 and was thinking about doing some saltwater fishing. I am not looking to spend a ton of money to charter a boat for just a few people but rather one of the boats that I can just pay 50 bucks or whatevr and get on with whoever.

Does anyone have any recommendations on a good service where I will have a good time and catch some fish.

Thanks in advance.

well that is spring break time but my school has spring break on an off week so it will not be really crowded.

I have never been to the ocean before so I thought it might be fun to take part of a day and go fishing.

I could be happy if I could just fish off a pier and catch something.

You might try & go to Port aransas, they have boats there where you just show up & pay the fee & go fishing. They usually fill the boat then take off if it's not chartered privately or by a big party!!!! There's some that go all day or at night!!! We went last year for a company fishing trip & caught a ton of red snapper, they will let u fish for sharks also if there arent too many ppl on the boat, but good luck this time of year they are booked pretty quick.....btw South Padre is crawling w/ppl this time of year for at least 2 months straight.....

If you don't want to go that far south or are flexible on your destination, Galveston may have what you want... they are really busy over spring break, but not as bad as Padre I don't think...

There's tons of info on the web...

When u get to the island @ corpus headed south there will be a 4x4 only sign, just keep driving it's isolated pretty much cuz it is about to the end of the island, there is little shell & big shell, they are partof the beach that is way down there,,,real good fishing esp for shark...that is where alot of ppl go to get away from everyone since u pretty much need 4x4 to go thru the sand, unless u wait for low tide & drive the beach all the way back!!!!
