South Padre Island Fishing, South Padre Island

Crystal Flats Guide Service

Hello Everyone,

My name is Captain Cliff Fleming and specialize in

private bay fishing trips. I am a local fishing guide that has

been fishing the Lower Laguna Madre since 1974. My

passion to fish turned me into a passionate professional guide

in 1986 when I got licensed by the USCG. When you fish

with me my main goal is to have FUN while catching quality

fish. I am a patient teacher and a low key coach for

experience anglers as well a small children. Everything is provided bait, tackle ice and

drinking water, except anyone 17 or older will need at least

a one day Texas fishing license.

I have quality tackle and a flats boat that easily

navigates the very shallow waters of the bay and also

handles the near shore fishing challenges as well. We catch

redfish, speckled trout, flounder, snook, kings, tarpon,

mangrove snapper, and spanish mackeral as the seasonal

runs provide them to us. If you and your family or buddies

want to go on a FUN filled fishing trip and learn some new

techniques, and get some local history of the area a the

same time, I can provide those services while catching

some great fish. Sight fishing, spin fishing, bait fishing, and

fly fishing are all in my bag of services. Take a look at my website link for more

details, photos, and information and multiple reviews by others on

google, Trip Advisor and Yelp.

Optional Services

2-3 Hours before Sundown Trips

Just for more fun we can mix it up with some Bird or

dolphin watching, a little fishing, or attempt some turtle or

sea life photo hunting. We could Stop for a libation at a

locals pub on the water. Perhaps a birthday surprise hopping

around trip or even a special lovey-dovey nostalgic cruse.

Friday Fireworks trips too.

Basic Rate: $300.00 for 1-2 people. Each

additional passenger is $25.00. 6 max by law
