Fishing Charter / Tour · Boat Tour
Captain David Leal's South Padre Island fishing service takes you on an adventure out on the bay. If your looking for a professional and respectful guide who is always thinking safety first and knows where to find a big catch you've found your captain.

Captain Dave has been fishing all his life and he is a certified Texas Parks and Wildlife Captain. He has been in business for more than 20 years serving the South Padre and Port Isabel area.

All the fishing is in the Lower Laguna Madre in the Port Isabel and South Padre Island area in calm waters.

All charters are on 20 foot shallow sport boats with 150 Yamaha engines and all new equipment. We use seven foot rods with Shimano reels. All the fishing equipment is included on the trip.

Guests must have their parks and wildlife fishing license. Everyone 17 years and older needs to have a fishing license with them.

As far as drinks, sunblock, and caps and all that; I have everything on the boat. All you have to do is come out ready to go fishing.
