Taking a trip with Captain Phil Hill’s Guide Service is one of the best ways to explore the waters around South Padre Island. Join Captain Phil, who’s been fishing these waters his whole life. Inshore spots are perfect if you’ve never gone fishing before and want to learn the basics. Now, you can take a trip with a guide, who’ll show you how to catch your first fish. Aboard an 18’ Shallow Sport boat that accommodates up to 3 guests. This great flats boat has been fully refurbished in 2019 and features the latest navigational electronics. She’s powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine and has a live bait tank and a cooler. Capt. Phil can put you on Redfish, Trout, Snook, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, and Flounder. You’ll use quality Shimano equipment, mainly spinning and drift fishing. You can tag and release, throw back just for the sport of it or take your catch to the local restaurant and have them cooked just the way you like them. Not to worry, Captain Phil will clean your fish for you and it’s free of charge. He’ll also cover your fishing equipment, including both artificial and live bait. You need to purchase your fishing license in advance, and bring some snacks and drinks for the day. Experience some of the best fishing of South Padre Island and get in touch with Captain Phil Hill’s Guide Service.
